COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a version of a Belgian Witbier incorporating 50% wheat and 50% barley. To put a subtle spicy note to the beer, heather and sweet orange peel were added in the process to showcase this beer originating from Olde Burnside Brewing's Scottish roots. The yeast, malts and hops (Fuggles) used are British, the style very Belgian, and the spiciness Scottish, making this a very "worldy" ale.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: 201404 (smudged). It pours an unfiltered, cloudy looking pale yellow with a big head that fades back fast. The aroma has a vibrant lemon note along with more muted toasted pale malts, yeast, and light spice. The body is thin. The taste has a slight malt character with more lemon than anything else. But there was also a vegetable oil kind of oddness to it.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Wheaty malty base, moderate sweetness, lemon, and coriander. Very standard for the style.

smells like stale orange but this has a putrid flavor, rotten grains and rotten oranges. Dumped it out

Draft @ Portland Brewfest. Pale hazy color. Full white head with good retention. Excellent nose of wheat, orange and coriander. Damn fine taste of lemon zest, orange, yeast and a hint of hops. I’m a huge drinker of wheat beers and for me; it works on every level. Light body, soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is crisp and extremely refreshing. You have to like Wit beers and lots of citrus to enjoy this. I will pick up a growler of this in the near future.

It’s a cloudy yellow in appearance with very little head. It had a much more mild and lemony flavor than I expected with no real Belgian yeast flavor. Very refreshing but tasted almost more like a soft drink than beer. Very interesting and nice on a hot summer day. Probably not the beer for you if you want a straightforward hefeweizen. Also you’ll need some help because it’s only available in 64 ounce growlers.

In short: A wheat beer with a dominant pineapple flavor. Original and refreshing.
How: Tap at Vermont Brewer’s Festival 2010
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a medium white head
In long: The bright nose has lemongrass, pineapples, lime. The taste is a bit unusual. I don’t remember ever having a beer that tasted some much like pineapples. A LOT of pineapples. Very refreshing. Nice tartness. Pleasant crisp wheaty body. This was an original brew and I would love to try it again to see if it really tastes like this every time. I will remember this beer. And my memory is getting better and better, I practice it by lying to everyone.

Sample at Vermont brewers festival.
Appearance : hazy pale yellow with white head.
Aroma : Citrusy with notes of lime and pineapple it would seem.
Taste : A bit watery but nice pineapple. Some malts. Soft carbonation.
Overall : Very strange beer but interesting. Don’t know where those weird fruity notes comes from but it was quite good. Very nice summer drink. Maybe a bit too watery on taste.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2010
Tap at BCTC 2010. A decent Witbier with some dynamic twists. Pours a cloudy, light yellow with a mild, white head. Pleasant citrus aroma with some noticable wheat and yeast. Flavor is sweet and refreshing with more citrus notes, but also with some robust sweetness with honey and caramel malts, though to a lesser extent. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes sweet and semi-crisp. Not bad at all.

Sharp citrus aroma with a light amount of marmalade. Cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Mild bitter beginning with a sweet citrus finish.
