"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.

Dogbrick (12587) - 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.

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 (7563) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Tap @ Common Table, Dallas. Deep hazy eggy yellow with a tiny white head. The aromas spicy, yeasty, a big eggy. Theres 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.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle: Straw, clear, slight golden hue, huge rocky white head, decent lacing, lively carbonation. Spicy nose, lemon grass, perhaps even a touch of jasmine. Smells inviting. A bit softer on the tongue, some straw and hay as well. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finish is slightly soapy, in that boutique candle way. Nice nose, a little different from most, and not all that mealy for an American example. More enjoyable than I expected.
