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 bottle into a point glass.

Look - light golden color, clear, with decent carbonation and about half a finger's worth of off-white foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell - interesting bananas and/or cloves type of smell. The coriander and orange peel are pretty evident.

Taste - pretty much exactly like the smell, only a little less obvious. There's a earthy, corn-like taste in the middle and aftertaste. Interesting.

Mouthfeel - pretty well-balanced, not leaning too far on the watery or creamy sides.

Overall - pretty interesting and thought-provoking brew.

A 22oz bomber picked up at Bruisin Ale's in Asheville, NC.

A - A cloudy bright yellow, with a hazy complexion. 2 big fingers of head and tons of sticky lace left on the glass. Lots of yeast sediment drifts to the bottom of the glass

S - Sweet, with hints of orange and tropical flavors, and wheat.

T - A tropical wheat, light and refreshing, with hints of citrus and coriander. So much flavor and taste for a 4% abv. Well done!

M - Medium to light bodied, not much carbonation. Average mouthfeel

O - A very drinkable wheat, more than perfect for a hot summer night. Like the bottle says, light and refreshing

Bomber from bevmo la quinta ca for 4.19$

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an above average amount of carbonation and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for only a few minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Lemon/oranges, grains, yeast, coriander/cloves

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste lemons/oranges, corn, grains and a bit of yeast. There is also a bit of a clove/coriander spiciness. It ends with a corn syrup and coriander/clove slightly tart aftertaste.

Overall - I expected more from this fantastic brewer. It's very drinkable and would be great during the warmer weather but the flavours are fairly boring and it doesn't have many features that would leave me seeking it out again.

I haven't tried any of Ballast Point's more "regular" beers. By that I mean things that aren't IPA's or Imperial Somethings. I've always wanted to and the manager at the store I work at has finally decided to bring some more Ballast Point.

The color on this is a nice very hazy yellow with not much of a head. I was a bit surprised by the lack of head because I'm used to wheat beers having a lot of foam to them.

I really like the smell on it. It's not a heavy wheat smell like some of the American wheat beers, but it's a like citrusy Belgian wheat smell. Honey and coriander are definitely on the smell.

The flavor is a bit more disappointing given the nice smell of it. There aren't any bright flavors that come through and it's a bit of a muddy flavor. It's hard to tell what I get up front. Banana? Honeydew? Something along those lines. It finishes with, oddly enough, a ground peppery flavor.

Nice carbonation with a bit of stickiness that coats your mouth. A good enough mouthfeel.

I would definitely drink this if it was summer and I wanted a good session beer. Overall it's not something that I'm going to be craving, but it's pretty decent.
