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!!!!!

Poured from bottle into a wiezen glass

Appearance – The beer pours from the bottle as a lightly hazed orange-amber color with a one-half finger white head composed of lots of fizzy bubbles. The head fades very fast leaving very little lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heavy of a grainy wheat smell mixed with citrus of orange and light lemon smell. Some other aromas of clove and coriander are mixed in there as well along with a light grassy and haylike aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a smoother wheat flavor upfront, but grows more and more grainy in taste as the flavor advances. Upfront there is also a citrus flavor of orange which grows stronger to the middle of the taste only to fade at the end and be replaced by a more lemon citrus flavor. All the while a yeasty taste grows stronger in flavor from the beginning, bringing with it some spice of coriander and clove. The coriander gets rather strong at the end with it being joined by some pepper and a hay flavor, leaving a slightly dry, grainy and gritty taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both the thinner body and the higher carbonation are good for the style and make for a more refreshing feel.

Overall – This is a decent wit, but the flavor left on the tongue is a little bit off at the end. If you like a wit that is a little more grainy then this you may like, otherwise if looking for something with more smoothness then you may want to pass it up.

Rather dark for a witbier. Light orange in color with slight haziness. Perhaps, chill haze. One or two specks of dark precipitate.A few rushing carb streams. Head is meager, but I wasn't expecting a tower of bubbles. Looks okay.

Smells wheaty and mildy spicy. A few peppery notes here, some musty maltiness there. A little banana, maybe some coriander. Light straw. Not really as I remembered.

Has banana, wheat, and cracked pepper in the mouth, but not with the intensity that I swear by. I recall a lot of black pepper and other spice rack additions comprising a bright and sandy flavor. Finishes with delicious pepper and some coriander, timed out well. Every sip is a little bit better with warmth. Background lemon twang with some tea-like hops that identify this one as even more fascinating than the first swig let on. The pepper fades in and out, however. Starting to wonder if the dark speck I saw in the beer was a flake of black pepper that's gone and swallowed.

Drinks with some softness. Hardness contributed by a wily carbonation that's a little over-the-edge. Not off-putting. I can tell it's to try to accentuate the spices added. I'll now swear by this beer in bomber of draft format. This 12oz bottle seems like a slight injustice.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Served in a chalice.

A - Murky, far from transparent, deep-orange hue with little head to critique.

S - Sweet spices, caramel, fresh dough, honey, orange and a dash of coriander.

T - Lots of spices with little balance. Orange,pepper and coriander are coming through in an awkward fashion, resulting in a blend that simply does not work for me.

M - Flat, no carbonation to speak of whatsoever. Body is overly viscous, like honey, while withholding any beneficial flavors.

O - Perhaps this is just a bad bottle, but I could not finish my glass. Disappointing showing for my first Voodoo brew.

Live review. Poured by me into a clean, clear glass from the growler that I had filled September 8th, 2012 at the brewpub. Cost I am not sure of but I am going to guess $11.99.

A Satisfying "psst" released from the growler when i loosened the rather tight cap. Hazy yellow translucent body under a one inch creamy off white head that dissipated down to a single layer of bubbles within 2 minutes. Good look for the style. 4.0

S Nice solid witbier smell with significant pepper scent as well. Interesting. 4.0

T Directly from the smell....a nice solid witbier taste with the interesting inclusion of a peppery taste. There is some sweetness in the middle of the taste lingering about but mostly it is a nice, gentle wheat grain goodness with the pepper. 4.0

M Rather average feel to a Witbier with a slight bight of wheat grains enhanced by the sassy pepper taste gives the feel of this beer an edge. Really interesting feel. It is the opposite of "flat" or "boring" feel. 4.5

D/O Drinkability is quite good. Overall this is a fine example of the style. 4.0

Notes: The growler version loses nothing to the bottle and on tap versions of the beer and that is satisfying given that I bought this growler nearly two months ago.
