"Style" is a dirty word in Belgium and as you may have guessed can be around our brewery, as well. Saisons, traditionally, are fermented to dry tartness and liberally hopped (for a Belgian style, anyway). Witbiers are slightly sweeter, usually spiced, and always pretty light in color. Why compromise? Hoppy for a witbier, possibly? Offbeat for a saison, for sure? Our unique contribution: Triticale, a relatively modern hybrid of wheat and rye. Tradition gets the Deep Ellum treatment. Hops: Summit, Palisade, Liberty. Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Honey. Yeast: House Belgian blend. Other: Flaked Triticale.

Hazy golden straw pour with a white head. Smells of lemon, peach, coriander, and sugar. Some cracker, bread, yeast, and perhaps rosemary. The flavor is very heavy on the lemon. Some coriander spiciness, rosemary, sugar, and bread. A touch of yeast, orange, and cracker.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small frothy white head. The aroma is yeast and clove. Thin mouthfeel with a citrus and wheat flavor with light dry finish. A decent Belgian ale from Deep Ellum.

16 oz can courtesy of Doodler (Thanks Scott!) poured a cloudy yellow with a lasting white head. aromas of wheat, yeast, coriander and orange zest. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, yeast, coriander and orange zest with a smooth lingering coriander finish.

Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Sample at Flying Saucer in Austin. The beer pours a clear pale yellow color with a thin white head that burns away to a wispy film quickly. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Spices, fruit and yeast in the nose. Light body with a wheaty, fruity character and touches of hops and yeast. The finish is mildly spiced with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

deyholla (12589) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Can thanks to Sarah! Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of flora and sweet wheat with a touch of clove and lemon underlying. Flavor starts with wheat and light flora with a touch of clove and a hint of tart lemon in the finish.

Pint can, hells yes! Pours a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. A nice peppery and fruity nose. The flavor is clean, big lemons and oranges, some light rye, tannins, pepper and more banana and lemon zest. Good. Robust.

jackl (8556) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Tap @ Common Table, Dallas. Deep hazy eggy yellow with a tiny white head. The aroma’s spicy, yeasty, a big eggy. There’s a slightly malevolent spiciness to this beer. The taste is coriander, clove, white pepper and eggs. Yeast. Light honey. Belgian-influenced indeed. Medium body, light lactose. Reasonably flavorful.

JStax (7309) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pint can thanks to Errl poured into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head of foam. Pretty nice retention and lacing. The aroma has a lot of lemon zest personality coming through. Some other esters come through like cardamom and ginger, but that lemon zest is just in charge with this beer. The taste is very dry and lemony. I want to say pine-sol, but that would make a person think it’s chemically, but it isn’t at all. The lemon comes through very pleasantly making the beer very refreshing.

mansquito (7135) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Spec’s, Houston 16oz can: Pours slightly hazy really pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma is light amounts of spice and perhaps a fruity note or too. I found the taste to be, well... tasteless. I mean, there was a little bit of spiciness and perhaps some sweetness, but really I was disappointed.
