3.78/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler that was filled at the East End Brewery!

Appearance: A nice goldenrod color with a decent foamy white head.

Smell: Very strong aroma of citrus (orange) and coriander.

Taste: Light and a little over the top with the orange and coriander. This seems to be missing something.

Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing with good carbonation.

Drinkability: Like most Wits, this is an easy drinking session-like brew that would be great on a hot summer day.

I'm a fan of Hoegaarden and this beer seems to over-emphasize the typical wit spices a bit, but a good drink nonetheless.

Poured from an East End growler. I was concerned about the carbonation, since the last growler of Witte I got was flat, but that must have been a bizarre flufe, as this was nice and bubbly. The usual haze too, with plenty of head up top.

Smells of citrus and spice, just like a wit should. Nice and tasty in the mouth as well, with the spices carrying through and melding well with the yeatiness. A little of East End's trademark hop bitterness, as well.

Easy drinker, as wits should be, and while not befitting this cool fall day, I could kick a few of these back with no problem.

keg at the brewery -> pint glass (free full pint sample, hoo-ray)

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a nice inch bubbley head. Sporadic lace with carbonation levels appearing robust.

Smells of coriander, lemon peel, and that wheaty yeast smell thats common from witbier.

Taste: A nice orange-lemon zing with the coriander and wheat very present. Very crisp and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. I will be drinking this next spring for sure as its a regular east end offering.

A refreshing witbier that is true to the style.

Picked up a growler today during newly extended Saturday growler hours.

A - Color is a hazy yellow with a 1 finger head that doesnt last look. (
"Looks like the color of pee" adds the missus. Thanks hon.)

S - Smell is subtle. Coriander spice and a slight sulpher-like yeast component.

T - Bitter orange, pith, coriander, pepper, and wheatiness.

M - Slighly oily with a nice carbonation zing.

D - Easy drinking. Its pairing up well with some salty tortilla chips.

Sitting outside at Mad Mex enjoying the 70 degree Spring weather, what better offering to imbibe on during good conversation than the East End Witte. Appearance was slightly hazed citrusy lemonade look to it white bright head nice size stays around for a good bit of time leaves behind even thin lacing. Aroma is spiced up in addition to the traditional coriander it also has a lavender herbal complex about it very intriguing mix along with the citrus and sharp wheat and soothing bready yeast notes. Taste is flowery with the lavender tone, citrus bite is present with no added lemon wedge malts, wheat, and yeast have a fluffy creaminess to it all I like the layer of spices that stays on the tongue. Mouthfeel is light bodied semi spritzy carbonation like I said leaves it's presence on the tongue. Drinkability is where this beers highlights are very sessionable especially in the warmer months we're approaching won't be the last time I enjoy this fine brew.

I tried this beer at the bar because I had enjoyed the two previous East End offerings (Blackstrap Stout and Big Hop IPA). I was extremely disappointed in it. It poured an extremely pale yellow color with just a hint of foam at the top. Tasted less like a wheat beer and more like water, so much so that the bartender told me I had just bought the most expensive glass of water I ever would.

If you're idea of a witbier is something you can drink on a hot day, then this beer would definately meet your expectations. Though, I still would probably choose water over this beer. Tastes exactly the same, and at a fraction of the cost
