Pours a soft golden yellow with one finger of fizzy white head. Nose is weird, smells like spicy citrus gone overripe. I get combative yeast esters and hop bitterness with some old orange juice. Not appealing. Getting similar flavors. A touch soapy and definitely on the overly spicy/hoppy side (compounding of the two probably, especially in conjunction with the yeast character). Overripe orange flesh. Kind of a mess. Very dry and kind of sharp.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-15-13. Labeled as "New Holland White Hatter WPA." Interesting aroma features champagne, white wine, white grape juice, green grape, green apple, and cleaning product scents. Unique smell. Pours a pale gold / straw with a moderate amount of thick, uneven, off-white head. Produces extensive, frosty lacing. Juicy, tangy, dry taste features a white vinegar flavor. Lower on flavor than I would prefer. Dry aftertaste. Medium body. Frothy in the palate.

Hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is mild hops and coriander. Flavor is mild fruity hops with spices. Notes of coriander and white pepper. Dry finish. Wife: 3.9

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a copper glow and a thin, half centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed, grass, flowers, apricots, pears, bubble gum, anise and a hint of earth - very nice and complex. Medium-bodied; Pungent light hoppiness with a good bitter kick at the end, some coriander seed freshness, a bit of yeast and wheat, some light curacao and lemon notes and a dry, grassy and herbal finish. Aftertaste quite complex with the dry and grainy flavours really coming through and a hint of bitterness still noticeable from the hops. Overall, a good blend of a wit and an APA - not horribly hoppy, but dry and grassy, showing the wit side, and very nice for the summer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Lebanese Taverna Market in Arlington (thanks Kev!), Virginia on 26-June-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-July-2013.

White, I think it to be a witbier, but its a beldjie. Smell is mild fruity hop flower perfume. Rather strong on the uptake, seems more than 6%. Certainly not a well mannered wit, heheh. If its a beldjie, not sure how this rates along side orval, heheh. Some hops in there make it imperial grape fruit rinds none the less. Surprizingly long bitter finish. Rate this an eye pah. Decent sizzle almost makes it palatable to a lager lover, almost.

Bottle. Clear rich yellow pour with a spotty white head. Kind of a neat interplay here - yeast hits first, then some citrus zest. Slight hop bite comes in on the taste. Aroma is more impactful than the flavor. Not bad.

The wheat pale ale is a unique beer made by New Holland. My first WPA, it pleasantly surprised me with a robust pale flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
