Tidal Series.
Cloud Cover is inspired by the rustic ales of old world Belgium and is meant to be dry and refreshing yet still full of complexity. It honors the farmhouse brewing tradition while incorporating modern Sorachi Ace hops – a varietal not available a hundred years ago, but a perfect complement to the style. Saison yeast ferments a malt bill of imported pilsner, red wheat, and rye for subtle notes of earthy, peppery spice. Both sweet and Curacao orange peel in the boil make for bright citrus flavors and we add touch of coriander in tribute to traditional witbiers. The bold lemon flavors and aromas of the Sorachi hops add a new dimension. Light in body, dry and refreshing, Cloud Cover is the perfect match for outdoor dining or any activity as the days get longer and warmer.

beerbomb (222) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2014
aroma has hay, lemon, vanilla, grass, and pepper with a little nuttiness almost coconut as well as some nice spicy/floral hops - flavor is lighter - not too much funkiness, but very smooth - diverse malt flavors and yeast with a good hop profile make this very drinkable - definitely worth a try if you want a lighter flavorful wit with good hops

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Brewery draft. Bright candied lemon color with a white head. Lemongrass, honey, mint, yeast, bitter, pear, apple. Light crisp palate with a bit of a harsh aftertaste. -- something seemed to be missing in the body and taste. Pretty good but I wouldn’t get this one again.

lachrymalisis (440) - Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2013
satisfying as a less spicy witbier or a simple wheat-heavy saison. decent bitterness on the back but up front it leaves a bit to be desired. still, good clean beer.

On tap at Cloverleaf Tavern, Caldwell NJ. Pours a brownish gold with a thin foamy tan head. A solid belgian style beer. Attack is subtle and belgian spicy, with some fruit and malty sweetness. Finish is darker fruity.

PhillyCraft (5219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Draft at Blue Monkey, my friend ordered head high and we got this, we’ll give it a whirl for free I reckon. Notes of bready malt, lemon, Belgian yeast, orange peel and grain. Thin body with a tart finish. Average witbier which isn’t saying much.
