COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Witbier is a traditional Belgian style, delicate by nature and subtle by design. Our newest seasonal offering is neither of those things. With a nod towards tradition and a substantial dryhop we’ve created Real Ale White. True to its roots, White is brewed with unmalted wheat, orange peel and coriander, and fermented with our house Belgian yeast strain. But with a dryhop level that matches our IPA, the aroma of this White more closely resembles that of its American peers than its Belgian ancestors. Low in alcohol and heavy in hop aroma, the once delicate Witbier has become the commanding Session White IPA.

Can (Thanks, blutt59). Strong floral coriander, lemon, and wheat malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with large white head. Sweet lemon, coriander, wheat malt, and straw flavor. Nice balance. Very pleasant.

Hazy gold with big white head. Strong citrus aroma with a hint of spice. Taste is also citrus, with a little hops. Not bad.

dlihcsnatas (442) - Texas, USA - APR 15, 2015
Hazy gold with nice head. Smells like a cleaning product my wife uses around the house. Taste is coriander, pine, citrus, and old bread. Normally I am a fan of Real Ale but this one is a bit of a let down.

Looks good. Smells funky. Dry palate and way too hoppy. Not my idea of a witte. Piere Celis would not approve.

texrx (38) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Pour: hazy, golden yellow w/ big, fluffy white head that lasts. Nice lacing. Smell: wheat, bubblegum, floral hops, light alcohol. Taste: creamy wheat, floral & citrus hops, bubblegum, yeast, coriander & light alcohol. Nicely carbonated. Dry, sweet finish. A nicely dry-hopped belgian wheat! :)

weihenweizen (2155) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can, best by September 1, 2014, from blutt59, poured into a weizen glass. Cloudy pale golden, some chunks of suspended yeast, with medium fluffy dull white head. Aroma is nice spritzy herbal/icitrus hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is citrus hops, orange, some herbal hops, and nice tart lemon finish. I would say slightly more white beer than session IPA, all the flavors meld well for me.

Well this is an odd duck for sure... poured a cloudy yellow color with aromas of wheat, light smoke, some hops and a touch of citrus. Flavors are wheat up front, light ash and some stale hops. Interesting beer didn’t know it was a session ipa until I got on this site to rate.
