Luv Jus-the most recent addition to the Harriet line-up. A long time favorite style of mine, excited to give this version a go.
A-Served in a plastic cup in the tap room as a part of the Great MN Food Truck Rally No. 1 this beer is pale yellow and hazy with plenty of lively bubbles. No head.
S-Spicy wheat, pepper and coriander. Hints of bitter orange.
T-This brew reminds me of a saison mixed with a Belgian wit. Very spicy for a witbier. More black pepper notes with hints of coriander. Finishes with a orange zest, moderately bitter finish. Plenty of wheat flavor.
M-No skimping on the body. Heavy mouthfeel for the style. Finish is a bit long and too bitter for a witbier.
O-The high level of spiciness and bitter orange pith/peel flavor takes away from the drinkability of this beer. Big flavorful beer for a witbier.

Beer poured from on tap and into a tulip glass. It looked hazy gold in colour, and had bright wheat aromas, citrus hops, and banana yeasts. Tasted just like it smelled; banana yeasts, a hint of orange and had a wheaty finish.

Would I buy this beer again? Probably.

"Out Witbier is another unique addition to the Harriet line-up. A double decoction makes this our most rigorous mash schedule, employing a cereal decoction to cultivate creamy and malty overtones. Crushed coriander, orange peel and a few hops are added resulting in a refreshing citrusy light malty summer brew."

Jus is French for "juice". "Luv" is short for "love", and they just like the symmetry of two three-letter words.

It's a witbier. Hazy golden coloring, large, flush, fresh snowy white head. Looking delightful as can be. Picture perfect.

Aroma: wide open, vast, and airy. Light, lovely, and loaded with spice, coriander, orange peel, wheaty-type notes….every inch of a wittier.

Taste: light bodied, yeasty, spiced with coriander and orange peel, full of flavor and easily drinkable. Not a lot more to say, except that it is exactly right, totally on point, perfectly satisfying. Meets every mark of a witbier, and they should be proud of that. I like wits. They're tasty, refreshing, and pretty. The nicest spice, the juiciest fruit, and so likeable all the way down the throat.

Needless to say, I will revisit this throughout the summer.
