Ben Gleason has been growing organic wheat for twenty eight years at his farm in Bridport, Vermont, just ten miles from our brewery. Our brewers have combined Benís organic raw wheat, organic rolled oats, and organic 2-row malted barley. The resulting golden brew is then mildly spiced with organic coriander and orange peel and fermented with an authentic Belgian yeast to create this complex and refreshing white ale. A fitting salute to Ben Gleason. Available in 6 pks, cases, and draft for the summer.

White head that settles quickly. Leaves web-like lace. Greenish tinge to the otherwise straw-yellow liquid. Crystal clear, surprisingly Semi-sweet malted wheat aroma. Spritzy carbonation, thin liquor. This beer is all wheat. The aftertaste is short lived. Easy beer to drink, good on a hot day.

Bottle from the Coop in Davis, CA. Pours hazy gold with a half inch bubbly white head. Aroma of linoleum paste. Which probably means citrus/coriander, spice and a hint of banana. Near medium body with lively carbonation. Flavor is yeast spice, citrus and a hint of banana. Finishes clean and lightly spicey. Pretty decent wit.

A little plain. Nice bit of citrus taste but could have been more powerful for my taste. Oats could have been amped up too. Refreshing but boring.

The aroma is pretty close to being a Wit. Itís got wheat like malts, coriander, citrus, yeast, and bananas. However itís a tad bit stinky. The appearance is cloudy yellow with a small fizzy head. The flavor is like the aroma with a touch of twang. The palate is smooth and refreshing. This is pretty good but it has something wrong with it.
