COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

llucmaduell (158) - barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 19, 2016
Over the ages the term ’cellar door’ has numerously been referred to as the most beautiful term in the English language. Upon setting out to create the first summer addition to the Stateside line up of ales; the feeling that almost instantly came to me was that of beauty & cleansing. Many summer offerings tend to lack the complexity of their bigger, colder season counterparts; so my goal was to craft an ale of extreme balance with a delicate complexity that allows for contemplation while also providing quaffable refreshment. Starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. To pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision I gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend.

kingaugusta (211) - Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Pours hazy blonde with light sediment with a slight white head. Nose is tart with a little hops and citrus. Flavor is similar and richer with a nice balance of characters between a white and a saison. Finish is long and a touch funky without going too far. Better than expected.

cmacklin (765) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a huge, frothy, long lasting, white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet, floral aroma of citrus, yeast, grass and sage. Sweet flavour of tangerine, floral, wheat malt, yeast, lemon, grass and sage with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent witbier.

hershiser2 (1909) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle, Wine Warehouse. Pours hazy golden with very lively carbonation. Small white head. Aroma of straw, funk, random herbs. Flavor is lightly medicinal, lightly minty, with coriander, grass, and wheat. Different, but that doesn’t always mean good.

oldrtybastrd (4951) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours a cloudy yellow. Aromas of citrus and spice. Flavor wasn’t too Wit, White beers aren’t high on my list. But this one wasn’t that bad, had a little more of a crisp spicy bite to it.

Hanoi (803) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2016
Bottle. Nose is yeast, pepper, spice, sweet herbal note from the sage, earthy, lemon, grass. Pleasant. Taste is wheat, earthy, herbal notes, lemon, grass, sweet sage, pepper and spice with pronounced ginger in the finish. A really pleasent beer which is more Saison than Wit for me, but very enjoyable.

Pours a hazy straw from a bottle. Nice herbal aroma and flavor, definitely some nice sage. Good beer, but wish a little more going on.
