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.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Enjoy by date was 12/27/13, drank on 8/17/13.

Pale gold color, somewhat more translucent than you would expect for a Witbier. Very thin head. Smells of citrus. Not getting a ton of citrus in the taste though. Clean, although somewhat watery. Goes down very easy.

Ideally suited to a hot day. Overall just okay. I would drink it again, but probably wouldn't purchase it.

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a yellowish/white color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, wheat, a bit of citrus. Taste is coriander, wheat, some citrus, very easy drinking but not the most flavorful wit out there. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 8/25/2013. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, banana, orange peel, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, spice, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, banana, orange peel, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, banana, pear, coriander, clove, wheat, pepper, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of malt, spice, and yeast flavors; with a good amount of robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice witbier. Very nice balance of malt. spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
