Picked this up at a local beverage store, as it was on clearance. Since I love Ubo Ale, thought I'd give this a shot. Wow, this stuff was just plain awful tasting. Has a distinct sour taste, that continues on afterwards. I thought maybe after one or two, it would start tasting better (as I would get use to it), but it never happened. Bad from start to finish. Not sure what the brew master at Lake Placid Brewery was thinking, when he concocted this swill. Going to give the rest of it away, and just stick with Ubo.

12oz Bottle from CJ's Potsdam NY for $2

Appearance - Slightly hazy amber colour with a large size fizzy/frothy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, clove/coriander, floral notes

Taste & Mouth - There is a high amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains mixed with some clove/coriander and floral notes. There is also a honey and a cit of clove/cinnamon. It ends with a somewhat dry grainy/floral aftertaste.

Overall - A decent beer that I am happy I picked up. A nice flavour that has just enough taste to keep it interesting, but still very drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Straight pour from a 12oz pry-off bottle to a tall Ommegang flute; bottled May 30, assuming I’m correct in interpreting the date marking as being a Julian variant, making this about three and a half weeks old at the time of consumption (“1503 09:40”).

Appearance (4.0): Three fingeres of cream-colored foam come off of the pour, capping a rich straw / 24ct gold-colored body; the head bubbles away slowly, leaving a pock-marked cap with generous, wide-arcing lace. The body is perfectly hazy. Actually pretty attractive for the style.

Smell (3.75): Equal parts coriander and clove, floated by a rich mixture of dustry straw and buttermilk biscuits—or fresh pancakes. Candied orange peel comes forth as it warms, but it’s much less evident than I was anticipating.

Taste (3.25): Lighter in every respect from the nose, but bearing largely the same characteristics: dry biscuits, some modest spices (white pepper and coriander), but with a more forward lemony character, especially in the finish (whether it’s from hops or yeast, I couldn’t say) . . . some bitter orange peel, but not a ton. It’s alright for the style, and nothing offensive certainly, and it hits all the right notes, if not particularly boldly.

Mouthfeel (3.5): Modest carbonation with a lighter-than-medium, swishy body. Finishes nicely, and easily dry. Kind of a lightweight, but not out of character for the style.

Overall (3.5): Somewhat better than average, but nothing outstanding. It probably does what you’re looking for from the style, albeit in a somewhat pedestrian fashion. Good if you’re looking for an affordable, approachable witbier from a smaller, local-ish brewery if you’re in upstate NY.
