COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Indigenous to North Florida, it’s not hard to find this creature around the swamp. Its voluminous white head leaves wisps of lace on the glass and a subtle sweet finish that lingers. Indulge yourself with a homegrown wheat bier brewed in the Belgian tradition. Cottonmouth is brewed using traditional witbier ingredients, however, we ferment it using a Belgian wheat bier yeast that produces higher levels of esters. The result is a unique Belgian style wheat bier with a hint of the fruity esters found in a German Hefeweizen. Ingredients: Belgian pilsner malt, wheat and oats New Zealand organic Hallertauer and Saaz hops Freshly-ground coriander and Curacao (bitter orange peel) Production Targets: Original Gravity: 11.5 Brix IBUs: 10.5 Alcohol By Volume: 5.0%

on tap @ Swamp Head / Gainesville FL --- Clear golden amber, white head, strips of lace. Taste is caramel malt with coriander and light spices. It moves easily through the palate to light hops entering in the finish. Then at the end, malt and coriander are again in charge. Tasty and easy to drink even though it is pretty light.

Rated from notes taken 6 Sep 2013 -- This beer was pretty decent. Was expecting a little more from a name like this. It was a solid witbeer, I’m just not a fan of the style.

Ferris (7568) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Draft - Sweet wheat and light lemon. Pale yellow with a thin white head. Light sweet lemon, like cool aide. Much too sweet for me. Draft at brewery - Banana and clove. Still quite a bit of lemon sweetness, but finishes much better.

BMMillsy (1750) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Pours a light clear golden with nearly no head. Aroma of sweet pears and apples, wheat, honey, hint of spice. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Flavor is honey, apples, pears, banana, small hint of coriander, and slight dryness but not super dry. Sweet for the style but light enough that this goes nicely with the local hot weather. Not bad.

Not bad, a little sour, like I like the Belgian Wits but somewhat incipit. NIce aroma and gassy bubbles.

Gold pour with a nice white head. I had this on tap in Medart, FL...too funny. Wheat, light banana, clove, bubblegum, smooth and grassy hops add a pretty nice element to this one.
