single from some Whole Foods

a: served in a wit glass, a hazy golden white in color with a frothy layer of head that shows average retention

s: the nose spreads fresh mandarin orange - floral citrus - and well applied coriander spice across a simply structured wheat base, nice bready yeast aroma, subtle grassy hops

m: carbonated to around a moderate level, lighter in body with some weight to it

t: carrying forward with the aromatic set, the palate features a thoughtful combination of coriander with fruity mandarin orange on a slightly sweet wheat malt base, bready yeast, hops contribute little flavor, and add a subtle bittering to the finish

o: the restraint in dosing the spice is appreciated, and the fresh mandarin orange adds a little something extra, solid base beer with good yeast character, solid all around

On draughrt at the brewpub, La Perouse is very murky, dull gold with a small white collar leaving the slightest lace.

Smell is grainy, almost wort like, and corriander.

Taste is big on the citrus spices, a little sharpness. Some yeasty flavors, light sweetnees.

Mouthfeel is crisp, a touch of fullness aligns with the appearence, but generally rather light.

Drinkability is fine, too spicy, could use less spice and a little more time in the brite tank.

Canned March 2012

hazed grain color with a almost solid sheet of bone whites. Smells like wit, coriander and a hint of clove with some underlying grain and corn. Taste is clean white with some coriander and some clay and a hint of hay; simple, but clean. Medium bodied with hi carb and a dry finish. Okay wit, would advise wit fans to give a try.

Poured from 12oz can into Globe Glass

A. Pours 2 finger light head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing. Color is a hazy golden yellow.

S. Yeast, spice, lemon, has a bit of sourness. Interesting smelling wit. Has a pretty refeshing smell to it.

T. Interesting. Nice fruity citrusy flavor with some corriander going on in the background. Pretty yummy and refreshing. Get a little bit of clove as it warms. Nice mix of spice and fruit.

M. Medium bodied. Mediuam carbonation. Lingering sweetness.

O. Would like to have access to cans of this year round. Excellent summer beer. Overall I would say this is a pretty neat take on a wit beer. Has a bit more tropical fruit flavor injected into the traditional spices of a wit.

Pour is a hazy pale yellow with thin bubbly head. Nose is good, light peppery, decent yeast tones, and strong lemon behind. Taste isn't quite as bright, the lemon is more subtle but lingers throughout. The yeast is more present and a zesty pepper note. Body is a bit oily and full, carbonation is extremely high and the finish is rather dry.
