A cherry witbier based on the White Rabbit White. Brewed as part of a week of one-offs at the Little Creatures Dining Hall during Good Beer Week 2013.

Pours a pinkish orange colour, solidly hazed like the base witbier should be. Body is light and fluid. Head forms a fluffy pinkish white cloud and then disappears rather quickly. No lace, some light carbonation when tilted.

Medicine characters on the nose. Some acidity, some cherry skin. There are grassy tones as well, along with other fruity notes: perhaps peach and a bit of melon. Overall, it's a little weak, but it's not bad.

Light spritzy acid on the front of the palate, which develops into a more fruity tone as it goes along. Again, perhaps some cherry skin and a little peach. On the back the fruit sweetness drops out somewhat, leaving a pithy, peely character that's slightly vegetative. The finish is rather light and weak, with just a little seltzer acidity finishing it off.

Feel is spritzy but weak.

Overall, it's nice enough, but it either needs more acidity, more fruit or something to give it more body and character. As it is, it's a nice experiment though, and I'm pleased to see things like this coming out from White Rabbit, even as one-offs.
