Never have I had a witbier quite this perfect. Smooth, yet complex. Citrusy, yet not acidic. Sweet, but not cloying. This witbier is refreshing and well-balanced with hints of lemon, malt, and very light hops. Enjoy this in moderation, as it is very unnoticeably strong.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Colter Bay in Buffalo. I’m a big Long Trail fan, but I gotta say, this is the worst of the Brewmaster series so far, IMO. Perhaps it’s just cause I’m not as big a fan of the style as I am of the coffee stouts. It had a nice yellow pour with a decent head. Taste was slightly fruity, but overwhelmingly spicy at the end. Citrus, coriander, pepper. The finish started to get offputting after awhile, and I quit after 2 pints. I might drink it again if it’s the best beer available, but I’m not going to rush out and buy a bomber of it.
