seymour (1895) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. A very good unfiltered wheat ale with vaguely Belgian yeast and spice flavors. Like Blue Moon but fresher. No need for the orange wheel because the citrus notes are brewed-in the hard way. Recommended, especially to casual drinkers and those who are new to craft beer.

It poured a cloudy pale yellowish color with a small white head. The aroma was of wheat, some minor lemon and a hint of some florals. The flavor was of citrus, bananas, wheat and some cloves. A very tasty belgian witbier.

Tap (growler fill at World Market). Yeast, lemon, coriander, and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow color with large white head. Sweet lemon, orange, wheat malt, and coriander flavor. Nice - malt a bit light though.

On tap at Bottleworks. Pours a very cloudy pale yellow with white head and aromas of dusty wheat, lemongrass and a little bit of cloves. Flavor is light and refreshing but still full on the palate with a nice mix of cloves and bananas, wheat and citrus. Very nice.

Tasted 6/30/11. Pint from the Bottleworks. Pours hazy with a golden hue. White layer of head. Tons of citrus aromas mixed with the Belgian yeast strain. Good doses of lemon and oranges. Medium bodied and very tangy. Great use of the various citrus fruit. There’s a tingling effervescence that goes great with the bitter palate. Orange zest and bitter fruit blended with the candy yeast. Good roll of the palate through the sweet, tart and bitter. Great and bright Summertime sipper!

Draft at the Bottleworks. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with an inch-thick foamy white head. Aroma of orange peel, wheat, coriander, straw, and pale malts. Flavor of lemon citrus, wheat, coriander, straw, pale and sweet malts, and minerals. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a wheaty mouthfeel that has something mineral-like going on in the background. The beer becomes more nuanced as it warms but this one didn’t last long for me on a 95-degree day.

Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has a good amount of citrus (orange & lemon mainly), but is not as over the top as the name implies. There is the ’normal’ Schlafly wheatiness for the wit & that is a really good thing. There is a little coriander on the nose, but it’s in the background. Medium smooth body with flowing frothy carbonation. The taste starts out with clean wheat, some yeastiness and orangy citrus. On the finish the citrus really shines with the lemon, orange and grapefruit all noticeable. The finish leaves a creamy taste that stays around for a while. The coriander comes out more as the beer warms. Really well made beer & great take on the style.

(draught at Bottleworks) hazy light gold with white head and nice lace. Faint citrus/spice aroma. Flavor is citrus (orange), spice (coriander), yeast.
