I love white ales. So refreshing. Iím glad that we have this as a local beer, it was tasty. Not the best white ale Iíve ever had but not the worse one either.

Bottle. Pours a foggy yellow color with a decent white head. Very heavy malty aroma with a strong sense of wheat. Some lemon in the nose. Reminds me a lot of blue moon. Unfiltered. Not too bad for a small brewery outside DC.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy orange and yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma contains bubble gum, some spice, grains, and orange. Taste is more bubble gum, coriander, some citrus, and with a slightly bitter finish. Damn, that is really quite good. Light body and absolutely superb for a wit. I could drink this all day to be honest.

The Big Hunt, DC pint ($6): Pours your standard wit color with a cloudy yellow and a white head. Aroma is to your utmost surprise cloves and banana. Taste is pretty much down that same road. This is a very drinkable beer, but does not really try that hard to make itself very different from other beer. In any case, it is well-balanced, but not highly nuanced.

Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, oranges and coriander. Well-balanced taste of sweetness from the wheat and orange along with the typical Wit spiciness. A decent witbier.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a tumbled.
Pour is a cloudy light orange color with a pretty decent amount of haze. White head with some pretty sticky lacing. Overall, a good start. Nose is creamy and full of rich wheat plus some orange zest, coriander, and slight spice. Nice and well-rounded without any taking the front.
Taste is equally as good as the nose. Very pleasant wheat base with a touch of spice along with some nice citrus character. The mouthfeel really takes it away. Light body is enhanced by a nice wheat base and there is a touch of spice throughou along with a nice orange presence. Fairly light carbonation carries it through. Drinkabiliy is really nice. This is quite quaffable even after a 15-minute walk through the cold.
Very glad to add the first beer for this place. Itís a good feeling to finally have a local brewery thatís actually in my town.
Serving type: on-tap
