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 the bottle into a Hoegarden tumbler.

Out of the pour she comes a little dull and unfiltered pale lemon, but a real white and super creamy head is formed with some pretty good retention to it. Whipped up and merringue in appearance.

Nose is quite grainy, almost husky, with a slight lemon and mild green coriander sense. Fairly solid, with a hint of yeasty stench sensations.

A fairly neutral palate, bringing the citrus qualities to taste, but the body really shines with a full and rich juicy character. Malt rich dense and chewy, with a lemony finish. Mild very subtle hop it even seems hanging out just giving a little bit of bitterness. The flavors seem to mesh somewhat ok, but dont feel as bold as the mouthfeel would seem to indicate.

Overall though a real solid witbier, I'd have this again easily.

The beer pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat with a hint of orange thrown in. I also get a little vanilla in the aroma, which was unexpected. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of wheat notes, as well as a hint of coriander. The orange notes from the aroma don't really come through in the flavor. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.

Cloudy light yellow with a meringue head of a finger's height. 4.0

Tart lemon, unleavened bread, vanilla, salty crackers, brute-y yeast, and musty citrus hops. 3.5

Mellow lemon and vanilla. Almost a creme fraiche flavor. Herbal notes from the hops and a yogurty appeal. Sandy coriander finish. 4.0

Wet and light. Carbonation is medium-light, as well. Championship drinking. 4.0

Nice wit with loads of lemon and creme and a bit of stank. 4.0

A: Pours to a cloudy pale yellow with a slight hint of orange with less then a fingers worth of head that dissipates very quickly and leaves blotches of head all across the top.

S: Usual banana esthers with some coriander and an ever so slight hint of citrus.

T: Very nice tangy tart at the start. Spicyness of the coriander comes next and then the citrus and belgian yeast flavors come into play and then the alcohol at the very end. All the flavors are very mild and blend smoothly into one another. Very enjoyable.

M: Light carbonation. Nice crispness with the flavors, and the usual dryness in the after taste.

O: Very well put together brew. All the typical flavors are represented. Have to say it has less spice then most of the witbiers i've had but their absence is not missed here. This is my third Ballast Point brew and I have to say they've done a great job and are def becoming one of my favs.
