Belgian style Wit beer. In the style of Belgian Wit or White beer, this unfiltered Wheat beer is brewed with Castle Wheat, Pilsner, & Torrified Wheat malt; Saaz and Perle hops; and Belgian Ale yeast. A late boil addition of Curacoa Orange Peel and Whole Coriander give this beer it’s pronounced spicy & citrus finish.

On-tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy, straw yellow with a crisp white head. Smells of dishtowel, light citrus and some malt. Tastes crisp maltycitrusy and sweet with some spices and also some slight dishtowel flavor as well. Medium body, vibrant carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (8060) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 14, 2008
On tap @ Hamilton’s where it was being called Lil’ Towhead. Pours opaque golden straw with lasting bright white head. The aroma is lemon tartness followed by mild bubble gum and faint malt sweetness. The taste begins sweet before mild lemon tartness and bubble gum well up and dominate the flavor all the way into the finish. The sweetness does show up from time to time threatening to over sweeten the experience but never really does. Nice hot weather brew.

On tap at brewery. Closer to a hefe than a witbier. Cloudy yellow with almost no head. Banana bread aroma and taste with a good bready finish and clove notes.

Draught at the Brewpub Hazy blonde color, spicy esters in the nose, lots of hops and lemon notes. Rounded wheat flavor, not too bad.

(Draft: Beach House Brewery in La Jolla, CA) This is a pretty awful beer. There’s very little in the way of aroma to this beer, only just a hint of spice. Likewise, the flavor is very light, but almost entirely spices like coriander. The spice is strongest and most dominant in the unpleasant finish where the spice is sharp, tangy and bitter like ginger. The body is damn light. Pale yellow in color and cloudy, and it has a somewhat olive grey hue to it. Pours with very little head, but just a small rim around the glass. Really, I have nothing positive to say about this beer. Needs more wheat flavor and a more refined touch with the spices.
