2.83/5  rDev -11.6%

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on February 13, 2014.

It pours a slightly hazy pale yellow but the clarity is better than most wits. There is a quick lasting white fizzy head.

Something about this aroma is way off. Whether it is the spice mixture or what but I got the distinct impression of big spray. Pale malts and citrus were overpowered by it.

Light zesty body.

The taste has a toasted malt note, lemongrass, coriander, and maybe ginger with a muted by dry finish. But unfortunately the aroma really took control of everything and it was hard to enjoy.

Pours a good finger of off-white head over a straw body. Lacing tries for a split second, then tumbles back down. Beer is hazy, but no sediment is noticed.

The entire nose seems subdued. Tired earthy/gardeny hops with a lackluster spice profile. Yeast is also quiet and a bit of sweetness from the malt almost seems fake.

Yeast, cracked wheat and a bit of light malt start this off. Spices seem a little more impressive in the flavor, but the hops are still subdued.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. Drinks like a lawnmower beer with a dry finish.

Alberta (Canada)

3.05/5  rDev -4.7%

12oz bottle, another in a swath of identical-seeming brews recently imported into Alberta from the same contract brewer, which appears, on the ground and behind the paperwork, to be Genesee.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, silken foamy ecru head, which leaves some low-lying coral reef lace around the glass as it steadily recedes.

It smells of wheaty, somewhat acrid pale malt, muddled coriander, overripe lemons, neutered yeast, and a bit of herbal, weedy hops. The taste is softly sweet bready malt, with a touch of doughy pastry character, tame breakfast cereal wheatiness, ethereal savoury spice, a stale orange fruitiness, and more sedate herbal, earthy hops.

The carbonation is quite laid-back, and hardly noticeable, the body medium-light in weight, and actually pretty smooth. It finishes mostly off-dry, the wheaty, sugary, and fruity malt holding on the tightest, as the fruit and hops melt away into the approaching night.

A beginner's witbier, and agreeably wrought at that rate, with very little to none of the, well, not quite skank, but rather cheapness of its familial ilk. Too bad it's 5 bucks a sixer more expensive than Hoegaarden around here, which leads to the obvious question - why bother?

Roscoe's Hop House Belgian White from Rochester, NY.

This beer had a great, light lemony wheat flavor. Very refreshing and flavorful. Very good witbier.

I drank it out of a bottle from Food City in Knoxville, TN on 12/16/2012 from a create your own 6-pack.

Yes.

From a six packed that my wife picked up on a recent shopping trip in NY. The beer is pale...a milky, hazy yellow color. Bright white head with lots of lace. It's a light and sweetish brew...some very pale malt, grass, wheat twang, and spice. Slight fruit flavors...peach and orange. The beer is soft and light. Enjoyable after mowing the lawn.
