1.5L bottle, at least a couple years old: pours a clear dark amber bronze with a large over-carbonated froth of white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some biscuity notes and fresh coriander. Starts with good fullness and effervescence with sweet light caramel and coriander spice with lots of resiny hop flavor and bitter balance before a drier bittersweet finish. A unique and well-balanced brew.

Magnum. Big US IPA citrusy hop aroma. Copper-brown, fizzy head, very good lacing. Tastes like a muscled-up IPA. The wheat is not very apparent. Sweetness in mid. Great mouthfeel. Goes smooth and well-balanced at the end. A happy beer, indeed. Like it!

Hazy golen pour with reddish tinge and medium sized off white head. Aroma of wheat, hops,fruit and spice. Taste of wheat, malt, hops. Hoppy finish that lingers. Medium carbonation. This beer is a total mess, not sure what they were trying to get at.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012
Location: Draft at Proletariat, 12/21/12
Aroma: The nose is malty and hoppy, with some grapefruit, caramel, spice, and sugary notes
Appearance: It pours a reddish color with a bubbly head and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly interesting, with sweetness, spice, wheat, and some hops as well
Palate: The body is medium-full, it is creamy, a little heavy, a little sticky, and with a dry finish
This was some good stuff, and a beer that I found really interesting. I can’t, at least off the top of my head, think of another combo Hoppy Red-Witbier. I gotta give them big props for trying something this unique and making it work.
