Ernest (7889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle (Batch 16, 5.5%). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon/lime zest, peppercorn / grains of paradise, sage, ginger, coriander, lavender. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Remarkably good for this brewery, and one of the best wits I’ve had in quite a while (keep in mind I don’t like this style, so it’s very rare to find one that I would even drink, much less enjoy)...while the adjuncts certainly dominate the nose (especially the citrus and pepper), which is honestly my only gripe, they are very herbal and spicy without coming off too much like scented soap or urinal cake or bubble bath...it’s a good blend of spices, just a little too dominant. Seems very clean to me, too...no grainy aftertaste or off notes. Very pleasantly tart and well balanced...neither too sour nor too sweet, nor overly bitter from the spices...a difficult combo to find in this style. Good mouthfeel as well...substantial and fluffy but still very quaffable. Difficult to stop drinking. I’m pretty shocked, but yeah, for me this is damned solid and very close to a 4+ rendition.

Bomber from Highland Wine & Liquor. I’ve had some trouble finding the information for the batch numbers for the Epic Denver brewery. I need to dig around their site some more. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot out of this one, as Epic’s Belgian beers seem to be hit or miss for me with a few more misses than hits. This, however turned out to be one of the best witbiers I have had. The pour is very light in color, very textbook for the style, with significant cloudiness in the body. The aroma is wheaty and grainy with just hints at orange peel and savory spice. The palate is pretty full, but not sticky. The grains come through nicely here, imparting raw wheaty flavor in a good way. There are suggestions of clove, light fruits, gentle citrus and a nice, drying finish. There aren’t any overbearing yeasty notes and no extra stickiness or sweetness, despite the somewhat higher alcohol content for the style. Honestly, this is quite a nice Belgian wit.

Courtesy of douglas88. Pours opaque pale gold with nice white head. The aroma is sweet with malts, grains, some banana, a bit of cherry and a mild wheated malt note. The taste is pretty rich with soft smooth yeasty spices, more wheat like spices (?), a drying note, mild sweet banana and cherry flavored bubble gum. It ends with a pleasing soft palate.

Bottle @ home, tasted next to Funkwerks White 2012 and Bristol Wit. Cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. Quite spicy (yeasty and herbal), coriander, orange citrusy aroma. Rich bready and cracker malty, wheat malty, pepper/coriander spicy, fairly quenching/easy drinking flavor. Pretty good one but I preferred Bristol Wit.

Bottle: The aroma consists of oranges, coriander, light lemon peel, and a touch of lemon grass. It pours a hazy, bordering on cloudy, dull yellow with a two finger yellow tinged white head that leaves some sporadic webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with a hint of banana. The finish has light-moderate coriander, light lemon grass, lemon peel, and pepper. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Batch number 11. Pour was hazy yellow-gold with a big foamy white head. Light lacing. Nose of coriander and orange zest. Medium plus in body. Flavor is coriander, orange, citrus, and peppery. Lively finish. Lots of flavor for the style. Very refreshing.
