Another good Belgian White beer that I like. Pours slightly cloudy and straw colored. Thin white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is heavily yeasty...like a steamed hot dog bun! There is also a hint of citrus. Bright and carbonated on the palate. The flavor is spicy and smooth at the same time. Very tart entrance with lemon rind notes leads to a dry, smooth finish. A pretty refreshing beer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 Pours a very pale hazy straw color with almost no head. Aroma is citrus (lemon) and spice, taste follows the nose but is nicely sour. Very nice offering!

Mortlach (2532) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 23, 2017
Bottle shared @Brasserie 4:20 (Rome). Giallo paglierino, torbida, opalescente, schiuma bianca media. Al naso sentori di frumento, stalla, cantina, spezie (coriandolo). In bocca è morbida, piacevolmente dolcina all'attacco con acidulo finale, rinfrescante, leggermente pepata. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione medio-leggera. Che buona!

Bottled on 11-26-2012 opened on 9-20-2017. Old ass bottle, but what the hell. Looks and smells like a cider, cloudy, very foamy. Foam is soapy in appearance, not lacing like a higher alcohol beer. Tastes very white, flavor is good, aftertaste is a little disappointing. I thought it was a cider... it would have been cooler if it was.

Draft offering, surprising find, aroma is kind of blase with some tartness, lemon rind, lip balm, light bodied, taste follows suit with some flowery elements, some fatness, ok beer I suppose..

For whatever reason I wasn’t getting the tartness I normally get from a Jolly Pumpkin beer, I suspect something was off with my particular brew. The corriander and orange peel really shone in this brew and it was nice, but it wasn’t soured like a normal Jolly Pumpkin beer. I’ll have to try again, but man I was still really really into it, and that’s crazy to me.

commonmac (1367) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Tap in Ann Arbor with GLBTQ crew. Hoegaarden style glass. Hazy, unfiltered appearance. White head. Nose is refreshingly bright and tart with orange characteristics. Taste is tart with a lean towards a sour citrus quality. Soft spice undertone helps to quell the impact of citrus rind. Grassy qualities. A strong representation of a witbier especially those in the sour end of the spectrum.
