COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Indigenous to North Florida, it’s not hard to find this creature around the swamp. Its voluminous white head leaves wisps of lace on the glass and a subtle sweet finish that lingers. Indulge yourself with a homegrown wheat bier brewed in the Belgian tradition. Cottonmouth is brewed using traditional witbier ingredients, however, we ferment it using a Belgian wheat bier yeast that produces higher levels of esters. The result is a unique Belgian style wheat bier with a hint of the fruity esters found in a German Hefeweizen. Ingredients: Belgian pilsner malt, wheat and oats New Zealand organic Hallertauer and Saaz hops Freshly-ground coriander and Curacao (bitter orange peel) Production Targets: Original Gravity: 11.5 Brix IBUs: 10.5 Alcohol By Volume: 5.0%

islay (2645) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2017
4 oz. pour, on tap at Bottlenose Brewing brewpub in Jacksonville, Florida. Consumed on 6-2-17. Hazy, pale yellow. Creamy, cream-colored head. Looks good. Bubblegum scent. Pastry aroma. Simple but decent flavor. A bit underpowered in flavor, but that’s par for the course for a witbier. Lemon. Frothy in the palate. Light body. Not the most substantial beer but refreshing. A decent wit, but that’s not saying much. 7.3.6.3.12=>3.1

Nice and malty without being overly bitter. Very sessionable and just the right amount of carbonation. This is very underated on here and highlights the malts in the year round swamp head beers versus the others which can be a little too hop forward.

Shaker pint at Jake’s American Bar at Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, Florida. The pour is a mostly clear yellow golden with a small white head. The aroma is wheat grain, floral, citrus and some bubblegum yeast. The taste is the citrus floral along with a bit of the bubblegum wit yeast of the nose. The palate is light bodied with active carbonation and a dry citrus yeast finish. Hit the spot.

WVHouseofBeer (1064) - West Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2016
A pretty standard Wit, maybe a bit more spice presence than most. Pours the typical hazy light golden color. Fairly light body. An easy drinker and very refreshing on a hot Saturday afternoon.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2016
Pours a cloudy yellow. Aromas of citrus and spice. Flavor wasn’t too Wit, White beers aren’t high on my list. But this one wasn’t that bad, had a little more of a crisp spicy bite to it.

brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 30, 2015
On tap @ Swamp Head. Light straw colored beer with white foam. There’s a nice light ester quality of banana, apple, and pear. Some bready malts, light toasted grain, and some bread. A little on the lemony and tangy side. Slight white pepper and coriander as well. Pretty easy drinking and refreshing beer.
