Notes/Commercial Description:
Previously known as Wahoo Wheat Ale

A fresh, unfiltered brew perfect for lazy summer days.
Our Wahoo White is brewed with unfiltered, un-malted wheat and oats that give it a distinctive cloudy complexity. True to the Belgian tradition, this Witbier boasts a refreshing, citrusy flavor thanks to the orange peel and coriander we add to the boil. This makes Wahoo an ideal beer for year-round beach weather.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Pours a nice golden color typical of the style. A bit of haze and an appropriately-sized white head. Very nice smell with some of the typical wheat scents coming through in addition to a few hefe characteristics. Taste was nice with some of the German-type yeast coming through again. Simple, but quite enjoyable. Light-bodied with ample carbonation. Drinkability was very nice, as this was quite refreshing on a hot August day.

Relative clear yellow golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Nice aroma with notes of yeast, orange peel, coriander and bread.
Refreshing flavor with notes of orange citrus, mild bubblegum, coriander, white pepper, ginger, pears, lemon and passion fruit flowers.
Light body with slightly effervescent carbonation.
Very drinkable and refreshing Witbier, light but still with all the right expected flavors.
