Our summer ale arrives just in time for the dog days of summer. The perfect brew to help cool you down when the heat and humidity of late summer in NC get you down. A creative spin on two classics styles. This beer is light and very refreshing. Brewed with malted wheat and German ale yeast it is filtered crystal clear to allow the orange peel and coriander to shine brightly with a slight sweetness.

Well crafted Wit beer with fruitness and malt character kicked up just a bit. Aroma is amazing, showing spicy coriander and dum dum pop orange. Hops are pretty much non existent. Pours a hazy straw color, and finishes with a long fruity tartness. Excellent summertime quaffer.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Draught at Union Jack’s. Pours straw yellow with small white head. The aroma is very perfumy and herbal with some lemon zest, bubblegum, and wheat. The flavor is gummy wheat, some lemon, and a few berry notes. There are some haylike hops in there, but mostly a yeast and wheat spiciness. Decent enough for what it is.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2008
On tap at the olde hickory taproom in hickory, garnished with an orange slice. Pale, straw-yellow color, medium white head. Citrus, wheat, yeasty, bready aroma. Flavor is not as yeasty as aroma would indicate, but very similar. Kind of a mix between a Wit and a wheat ale.

Sampled at the Blues and Brews festival. Pours a clear golden red with a wheaty, sweet, orange, lemongrass, banana. Tastes citrusy, orange, wheaty, light spice, banana. Not very carbonated in the mouth and finishes with banana. Don’t believe this one should have been filtered.

Draft at Charlotte Oktoberfest 2006. Pours out a yellowish color without much of a head. Smell is sweet, fruity, some sour lemoness and orange. Taste is smooth and refreshing, very lively body. Not a bad beer but I wasnt expecting a witbier. Decent.
