3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap in a snifter glass
Appearance – The beer is served a very hazy orange amber color with a tiny white head of pure white. The head fades very fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of yeast and wheat with a good showing of spices of coriander and clove as well. Along with these aromas comes some notes of a light lemon and orange citrus as well as some bready smells.
Taste – The taste begins with a drier wheat bread taste mixed with a moderate showing of some citrus of orange. There is a bit of yeastiness as well as some flavors of spice upfront, with coriander and clove being the strongest of the spice. The yeast and spice grow slightly stronger in nature as the taste advances, but never become overly strong. A little more orange sweetness comes to the tongue as the taste advances to the end, with a bit more spice and some slightly sour lemon coming as well. With all the changes that occurred throughout the taste, one is left with a nice drier citrus and moderately yeasty and spiced flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side for a brew of only 4.75 % with a carbonation level that is rather average to slightly higher. The thicker body does well for the yeast and spice, really accentuating these all while the higher carbonation excites the tongue and is very nice for accentuating the sweet citrus. Overall, the feel is very appropriate.
Overall – A rather nice wit overall that packs a nice flavor into a minimal abv. of 4.75 %. Very well done!!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Many Glacier Lodge in MT. Right off the bat, bananas and clove oil in the aroma, as well as heavy malts. I could have been at the dentist, so much clove. Poured a hazy yellow, with a big, rocky, and very clean, bright white head. Swallows with a medium, creamy body, an average carbonation and a long, doughy character on the finish.
I did have this on tap, but brought a bottle home, so I may revisit this rating at a later date.

Trip to Montana so had to try the local highly regarded Beltian. I don’t have much of a palate however this is now one of my favourite white ales. Spice appeal with nice citrus & malt as well.
