I really liked this beer, even though I'm not huge into witbiers. Appearance was cloudy but not overly so, and the taste was very refreshing. Definitely could pick out the coriander and orange peel in the description. I've known about Epic for a while but this was my first taste of their products. I'll be back for others for sure.

Poured from 22 oz bomber into a tulip. Label says this is release 23, 5.6% ABV.

Appearance: murky light-golden hue with a moderate effervescence and a thick finger of frothy white foam. Quite attractive!

Smell: refreshing and wheaty, with a pear-like fruitiness. Spicing is light and adds just a little nuance to the aroma. This beer really appeals to me.

Taste: a little spicier than the average witbier, but it really works here. There's an even-handed balance between the fruitiness, light graininess of the wheat, and the spicing. It's quite refreshing.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a great carbonation and a big, satisfying creaminess. Delightful!

Overall: this beer really works for me. It might be a slightly more Americanized version of a traditional witbier, but it's refreshing, tasty and satisfying.

Cloudy orange colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells spicy with lots of coriander and pepper in the nose. Ginger and wheat malt and a faint orange scent.

Starts out spicy and a little tart with a bit stouter than expected bitterness. Coriander and peeper are the strongest flavors. Not very sweet mostly a spice beer.

Mouthfeel is OK.

An OK Witbier but I can find better.

Release # 16. 5.5% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny dots of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, wheat, honey, yeast, spice, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with spice and peppery flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice spice and peppery flavors that make this one easy to drink.

a total summer beer this one, completely inappropriate this time of year, but a real tasty beer nonetheless. it has a real mellow corn color with a quickly receding white head, not much lacing. the aroma and taste here are identical, tons of tropical notes, grains of paradise, lemon or orange, and a hybrid belgian/german yeast as far as i can tell. doughy yet light like the german brand, and spicy and bright and chalky like particular belgian strains, well done on that front. i dont get much coriander, thank god. i like it, but its played out, and this one only dabbles. light feel, some residual sugars but still pretty clean, and not quite hopped enough to hit my sweet spot. a well made and summery brew, light in body and only a little herbal on the way down. complex enough without distracting me, a good session brew and you cannot beat the bomber price in denver right now. will keep this one around.
