Zipline Brewing Co.’s Country White Ale is a sessionable farmhouse ale—the product of our efforts to design a summer-time Belgian-style ale. We wanted a fresher and more drinkable brew than the typical “Wit” style, so we used a farmhouse yeast strain to achieve a dryer, more drinkable profile. To further separate the Country White from the Wit style (which is commonly brewed with dried orange peels), we used fresh Valencia oranges throughout the brewing process to add a hint of citrus to the beer. And, to maintain a strong local tie, we use 200 lbs of Nebraska organic, rolled white wheat in every batch. After you park the lawnmower, Country White Ale will be waiting for you all summer long

Hops: Santiam & Glacier

A decent wit. Cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Lots of orange citrus aroma and a mellow sweet character throughout.

bigcat03 (243) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Sampled at Brews at the Zoo. Lightly sweet, a bit spicy but it more feels like it can’t decide what it wants to be as opposed to complimenting each other. A little thin on the palate and not enough carbonation. Not bad but not something I would sirens money on.

jcr (2487) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Draft. Cloudy golden body with a frothy white head. Aroma of clove, toasted grain, lemon peel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light raw grain aftertaste. A weak stepsister of Hoegaarden.

Ratman197 (12540) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, straw, pear, white pepper and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, citrus, white pepper and light yeast with a smooth dry lingering peppery citrus finish.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Tall, cloudy yellow pour with a tall, soapy to creamy bright white head that has decent retention. Aroma is perfumey floral and citrus hops, light floury grain and sweet fruity notes. Flavor is bready yeast, floury grain, a little citrus, peppery spicy yeast and light floral hops. Light body, off dry, chalky feel throughout, medium to heavy, sharp carbonation. Decent Witbier, more on the spicy, bready side than most Wits and not as fruity.

HuskerTan (1420) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle. A- Slight funk, lemon, wheat, soft. A- Clear color, clear liquid, white head. T- Lemon, wheat, mild funk, slightly sweet, slightly tart. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, dry finish. O- More like a mix between a Saison/Wit/Berliner Weisse. Refreshing but a little on the bland side. I honestly couldn’t taste any of the oranges in here but instead got lots of lemon. A good beer but certainly not the best from Zipline.

beastiefan2k (3203) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Shaker from draft at Harvest Moon. Clear pale straw color. Light slick banana esters. Comes off overly industrial with not much else to it. But is a clean light banana wit.
