4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Very pale gold color, almost yellow. A bit of yeast cloudiness which fits the style. Large creamy head that lasts a while.
Aroma: Very light and citrus-y, a bit of a sour twang that I really enjoy but seems to dominate the senses.
Taste: A little sour but perfectly balanced with a clean, tart aftertaste. Tastes a bit like cider but has a great brett taste that I loved. No hop character at all.
Palate: Pretty thin but very intensely carbonated, finishes clean with a nice tart pucker.
Overall: Hands down my favorite wit (my favorite style mind you!) and definitely in my top 5. It’s a fantastic tasting beer and stands out among every other wit I’ve tried, but like most wits it doesn’t hold your interest for more than a glass or so.

On tap. Pours pale yellow with foamy white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, coriander, white wine. Taste features a strong and pleasant acidity, wheat, white wine, and oak. Refreshing to the max. Over average Witbier

Disig gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Doften är lätt citronsyrlig med jäst och hö. I smaken tillkommer en lättare kryddighet.

I’m sure the first time I found beer to be truly enjoyable was when I was drinking a white ale in the summer. I’m glad to say that enjoyment has never changed despite all the great things I’ve gotten to try. Calabaza Blanca is an extremely classy Wit and a phenomenal summer choice. It pours light yellow with pillowy head. Fruit peel, spice, yeast, and bread aromas. Both the flavor and consistency are creamy. Lots of sweetness in this brew, but it’s balanced by a light tartness in the finish. Go figure, an excellent yeast-focused brew from Jolly Pumpkin.

T- Lemon, wheat, citrus, milky, egg, subtle spice.
P- Light body, creamy texture, average carbonation, soft finish.
O- Not really a typical wit in my opinion, but good. Very light and not a lot of flavor. I expected it to be sour or funky but it was not.

Cloudy / hazy golden pour with thick, disappearing foam. Moderately spicy nose -- coriander and orange, with a touch of pepper. The pepper and citrus persists in the taste with a moderate tartness at the end. It is a good wheat beer with a slightly surprising and pleasant tartness and dry finish. Reminiscent of their Uber Wit, but less aggressive.

Draft at Bru Craft. Hazy pale yellow pout with fizzy soft white foam that left a lasting ring but no lace. Bright citrus florals with just a hint of straw. Modestly tart. Lemon shortbread. Clementine marmalade. Grape leaves. Loquats. Oyster crackers. Thirst quenching.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very murky bright sandy yellow, very thin bubbly head. Nose is a rich sweaty zest, a bit burnt plastic and soft earthiness. Initial taste is a rich vibrant tartness, stoney fruit and veg. Carbonation is sleek and mouthfeel is gritty. Finishes a fair power of grapefruit and pineapplely with lingers of more rich tartness. What is Wit. Bottle, Beermoth.

Clear pale golden. Nose is spices, lemon, funky, tart apples. Taste is tart and bitter, lemon, herbs, cloves, spices. I liked the nose more than the taste and palate.
