Le Papillon is the French word for butterfly, with significance being that it is both Inman Park’s trademark symbol and origin of Brewmaster Bob’s hometown name.  A light-bodied, cloudy, Belgian wheat beer. Made with unmalted wheat, oats, and barley and subtly spiced with Curacao orange peel and coriander. Perfect for warm weather drinking!

Appearance: Presented a clouded, pale straw-hued body with a slim, white head.

Smell: Soft, hewn hay, ultra fine pale malted barley. Only on a deep, sincere sniff does the beer reveal notes of spice and citrus. Really, a light aroma overall.

Taste: Pale malted barley, slight slim milk milkiness. Lightly sweet. A touch of coriander yields to the also fairly light orange peel flavor. The beer dries out fairly quickly, leaving a spicy, smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: A competent witbier, though I’d prefer a bit more carbonation.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Hazed pale yellow pour with creamy off white head and lace. Spicy coriander, paper, and wheat aroma. Flat wheaty flavor, coriander, and some spiciness. Light bodied and a tad fizzy.

Westmeister (1534) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Draft sampler. Pours a super cloudy yellow with white head and nice lace. Taste was banance, clove, medium sweet malts, some orangy citrus. Nice medium palare with a lingering sweetness. Nice wit.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 My favorite in the flight of beer I tried at Wrecking Bar. Light and refreshing, with citrus notes. Very nicely done overall

GTAEgeek (1063) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2013
On tap in a flight at the Brewpub. Cloudy, pale yellow color, with a medium, white head and great lacing. Smells musty, with hay, herbs, and lemonade. The flavor is citrusy sweetness, with a light sour bite in the finish. Light body, crisp, and sticky. Overall, this is a mellow and refreshing witbier. Very well made, and true to the style.
