22oz bomber into Duvel artist series tulip
Bottled May 2012 Batch One (Big thanks to Double D for bringing this back from his vaca).

A - cloudy, medium yellow in color. Mild head that dissipates fairly quickly

S - not alot of aroma but what is there gives the smell of a wheat ale versus a wit.

T - interesting. there is an oaky sour taste combined with a mixture of wheat ale and wit yeast like body. A lemony taste hits midway and lingers as well. Very different but enjoyable.

M - light to medium. Even with the heavy presence of wheat it finishes smooth. Refreshing and damn easy to drink.

O - Not sure what to make of this. As a pure Wit style it misses the mark but I really think this should be labeled as a Pale Wheat Ale. In that vein, it drinks really spot on. Tangy and easy drinking. Maybe not my favorite but I would certainly have another if I had access to them.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a smallish white cap that slowly dissipates to lots of sticky lace on the glass.
Smells of lemon and citrus hops with a bit of pepper and spice. Taste is sweet with bready malts, candy sugar, a bit of lemon and pepper. Light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a slick sweet and spicy mouthfeel. Nice wit, not really my favorite style, but I can see the appeal of this beer for something lighter on a hot summer day.

Pours a cloudy, whitish gold with a thin head into my glass. Great color and a welcome change as the nights are starting to fall sooner here.

Lemon and coriander in the nose. "Juicy" with a good yeast accent.

Lemon, grapefruit and spice make up the mouthfeel here. It's a hoppier wit in other words. It works alright. The hops do compliment the yeast.

Lingering spiciness from the yeast with just a mild touch of citrus. Not much left. Very tasty once again.

I like this. It's hoppier than a typical wit so beware if hops are not your thing.

I am a huge fan of White Birch brewery and always impressed by the progress they have made in their short existence.

This beer is not too malty but that is not what they were really going for. It has a subtle bitterness from the hops but not a very strong hop aroma. It is a really nice refreshing beer with a bit of a fruity taste for, really great for this heat wave!
