Notes/Commercial Description:
Sitting on a deck over water and eating fresh seafood is a special privilege of being from the Jersey Shore. Doing exactly that at Moby's in Highlands one sunny day, The Wit Whale occurred to us. Having grown up alongside schnitzel, we knew that the esters of classic wit yeast would associate well with the crunch of fisherman's platters while a drinkable malt bill of 50% wheat and 50% Pilsner would accompany the sweetness of fish themselves. We relied on the mineral profile of our water dressed up with lemony Sorachi Ace and grassy Summer hops to play with the richness of shellfish. Drink The Wit Whale because you have a basket of fish in front of you and you can see the water where it was caught.

Lemony 50-50% blend of wit and pilsner - perfect for summer seafood.

A: Tasted at the brewery on draft, first of the summer 14 season.
Pours a hazy, pale yellow color with two inches of white head and moderate retention and lots of lace.

S: Smells like a laid back American shore belgian. Not as intense spice, coriander, but a true cousin. Yeast and esters are well married to the pilsner. Reminds me of great pilsners as much as great Wits - as billed.

T: Follows the nose but it's both more powerful, with more body and back bone, so it will be matched well with clams, oysters, flounder, fish fry.

MF: Medium body, low carbonation, creamy. Compares very well with Bells Oberon.

O: Close second to Bells Oberon, and Alagash as America's best Wit that I have reviewed so far, tied with Southampton Publick House, Double Wit.
