3.73/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
presentation: 22oz. brown bottle with best before date of 30 Oct. '09, poured into a chalice.
A: Dark mahogany with deep red tones. Light tan head with minimal lacing.
S: Mainly malty with slight hop overtones. Some sweet aromas of molasses with some roastiness.
T&M: Very bland compared to the smell. Simple malty flavor, but very smooth and slight dry aftertaste. Heavy bodied, but smooth and better tasting as I get to the bottom of the bottle (maybe I should've shaken it first)
Definitely okay and I love this brewer. Less than $3 a bottle at Total Wine & More. I like the Witbier the best though!
