rosenbergh (7157) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2014
12 oz bottle. (World Market) Chattanooga, TN.
Hazy mid-brown colour with a small off-white head. Piney and resiny hops, moderate bitterness, mild yeast and dryish malt in the aroma. The flavour is smooth hoppy with piney and resiny notes, mild yeastiness, sweet maltiness and some spiciness. Drinkable.

A "Belgian Style White Pale Ale"? Let’s check it out. It’s got a good looking pour, a hazy deep yellow (not at all white... but we do have Black IPAs, don’t we?) body with a sustained creamy white head. The nose has ripe oranges, a hint of tropical fruit, and a sturdy hit of the coriander and grains of paradise to it. There’s a mild bitterness (praise be that they’re not calling this a "White IPA") that rounds the flavor out. Not a bad brew at all.

Served on tap in a chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a very hazy golden yellow color with a one finger head of white foam floating atop the brew. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a grapefruit citrus hop mixed with a moderately strong showing of a grassy and herbal smell. Along with these smells, comes some aromas of a more yeasty nature, a little bit of a hay and grainy smell, as well as some hints of apple and peach fruits. Taste – The taste begins with a lighter and crisp cracker taste with a bit of a fruity flavor of peach, apple, and tangerine and a decent showing of a grassy and grapefruit tastes. As the taste advances the fruit that was present up front fades all while the grass and grapefruit get stronger, all while with these flavors being accompanied by some yeasty and hay-like flavor. Some lighter notes of lemon and some spice later come to the tongue and with a little bit more grain, and grass coming to the tongue at the very end, one is left with a rather crisp and moderately hopped flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the moderately hopped and drier flavors of the brew the feel was rather nice and helped accentuate the more refreshing and sharp tastes of the beer. Overall – A decent Belgian IPA. Not bad overall, but nothing super exceptional.

seymour (1460) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Shared from a 12oz brown bottle into sampler glasses. It poured a hazy light golden amber colour with a weak white head. Since the name eludes to their Mad Hatter IPA, I expected this to be something like a Belgian IPA. Not at all. It is a weak, overly spiced Belgian Wit. Medium body, mushy wheat mouthfeel, way too much orange and coriander essence. None of the grains, hops or yeast get to do any of the talking. Unpleasant.

I can’t place the smell...at first I thought hint of vanilla, but that isn’t it. Banana? Pours a light yellowish color with lasting lacing. Minor citrus and spice to it. About the same amount of hops as a pale ale. Unsure what a white ale is, so cannot compare it to that. It is very easy drinking, not really that bad at all. Pretty mild. Overall not bad. Nothing to seek out, but if you want a beer where you can have a few of them, this would be good.

12 ox. bottle pours a hazy orange with white head and decent lacing. Aroma has spices, Belgian yeast, and passion fruit. Taste is on the sweet side with a bitter finish. Body is medium with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Body is medium with slight carbonation. I thought this might be yet another american witbier, but it has a few surpises, although not as comolex as I had hoped for.

Excellent white belgian. Great wheaty, slightly yeasty. Mildly sweet. Not peppery at all. Very nicely balanced.
