Notes/Commercial Description:
This White ale is made with a little Voodoo Twist. We use our house Tripel yeast and add the average unmalted wheat, wheat, barley and just add more of each. Hopped evenly and spiced with coriander, bitter orange peel, juniper and Jeremys' favorite spice to remain a mystery. This beer is to be the answer to those hot summer days. Blows away carbonated water!!!!!

look: 2.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegaarden glass.

A lifeless head that barely makes a pencil thin puck off the pour, leaving a very faint soapy collar that isn't even. Body color is peach amber, dull, and full of lots of sediment even when pouring slowly, with lots of floaties.

Nose though is quite charming. Hints of white wine, and nice peach like sweetness. Some lemon and citrus character but a real nice peach juicy quality, and this wine like yeast character. Real interesing, and very unexpected for a witbier. Really digging it.

Palate comes nicely. A good malt coating, that hints and accentuates the peach sweetness. Some hints of smooth Belgian sugars but with some powdery clove and hot pepper flavors. Nice quenching juicy finish full and lush with citrus and fruit. Spicy aftertaste that lingers with an interesting heat.

This is a real unique witbier and very enjoyable. Quite memorable I'll have to look out for this again.

I've had this beer several times now and each time it's a little bit different. The appearance is golden yellow with a good amount of haze. The smell this time around is heavy of white peppercorn and hints of coriander and honey. The taste is very similar with a lot of pepper on the front finishing crisp and sweet. The mouthfeel was nothing special but ample for its style. My wife and I love voodoo and this is her go to. I enjoy it as well. The spice blend pairs extremely well with steak and salty foods.

A: The beer is hazy dark pale yellow in color and has lots of particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of juniper berries are present in the nose along with spicy notes of coriander.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and also has hints of wheat and ginger; the coriander and juniper flavors persist through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked this beer as it had the intensity of flavors you would expect from an Herbed/Spiced Beer, but was really easy to drink because of the use of the wheat malts.

(3.25) A: Copper coloured with mysteriously no foam head and quite a flat appearance (even with vigorous pouring).

(4.0) S: Floral qualities, mix of vibrant spices, tree sap, grasses, orange, and some orchard pear. A bold aroma with wonderful creativity.

(3.5) T: Lots of spices, citrus orange, grainy, floral qualities, and grasses. Spices are the centre of attention with the peppercorns providing a bit of heat in the finish. Full disclosure: I have no idea what juniper berries taste like.

(3.0) M: Lighter bodied with minimal carbonation. Clean and crisp but perhaps a bit too much with not enough body or texture.

(3.25) D: A bit disappointed with this, and a bit surprised considering how much I enjoyed Voodoo’s offerings at the brewpub and in the bottles I’ve tasted to-date. The potential and creativity is there but many qualities were off unfortunately.
