Ye olde sign maker’s consummate summer brew. A Belgian style wit ale that is light and crisp with classic notes of coriander and orange peel. A light hop bitterness makes this a refreshing ale for that hot summer day.

Testing the premise that this is a beer for a hot summer day, I tried it on an afternoon when the temperature was 90 degrees with a heat index in the ballpark of 95. If that’s not hot, you are a human air conditioner.
Aroma / Appearance - Cloudy light orange color with a very faint head and almost no lacing. Almost nothing was detectable in the nose, even after letting it warm up for a few minutes at the table. Other than wheat and a faint hint of citrus this one revealed nothing. It was neither offensive nor pleasant - just bland.
Flavor / Palate - After letting it thaw out, I took a sip to discover a vaguely wit-like beer. It had some hints of Belgian heritage - wheat, a weak spicy aftertaste and a distinct impression that cooled the mouth. Otherwise though it was lacking anything distinct. I was expecting at least a hint of citrus or some other flavors; instead I left with only the taste of grains. For a minute I thought this might have been the Triple Treat until I saw the cloudy yeast at the bottom. Passable but in no way spectacular. If you have a craving for a Belgian style ale when eating here, go for the Boots Belgian Abbey instead.
