16oz can to craft pub glass
Saison/witbier combo

A – Good carbonation, lively in the glass. Nice light gold, kind of cloudy color. Very translucent and a little transparent near the glass. Pretty nice cloudy head, but kind of thin and waxy looking.

S – Very nice, I’m picking up both witbier and more saison-y smells. Orange, some characteristic Belgian sweetness, some earthiness, and some spiciness from the hops (saison part). There’s also some wheat and banana (witbier part). I think they are well-mixed but can be picked out quite easily. The earthiness is like a musty dirt, it fits in well.

T – Taste follows smell nearly perfectly, wow. The flavors are mixed but can be picked out. The Fruit (orange, banana), wheat, and Belgian sweetness hit you up front, then the earthiness comes in, followed by the hops.

M – Very strange, it has a finish of average dryness on the tongue (between the finish of a wit and a saison), but it dries out your whole mouth. I don’t particularly like it. I drank a sip of water to rehydrate my mouth, and took another sip of beer. It feels dry because the carbonation is leaving my mouth tingly, I can really fill it on the tip of the tongue. In the context of a saison, this dryness is quite good I think, and isn’t quite as strong as the beer warms a little. Light bodied overall, probably on the heavy side of light. Kind of thin on the back end though.

D – I honestly wasn’t expecting much based on how people talk about Deep Ellum, but I went in with an open mind. And boy was I wowed. I think there’s definitely a sweet spot temperature wise, starting at about 5 minutes out of the fridge and lasting for 10 minutes. It’s still very good past this point. This is my great surprise beer of the week. If you regard it as just a wit or just a saison, you’ll find it off. But as a hybrid, I think it’s great.

On tap at Downhouse in Houston, TX. A lovely hybrid style of a Saison and Wit.

A: Pours cloudy/hazed yellow/golden color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Earthy, fruity, and spicy. Orange peal, coriander. Husky wheat. Then a lingering hop bitterness shows up. The hops start out subtle, but build and lingers on. Which I think really pulls this together.
T: Follows the nose. Earthy, grainy malts. Peppery spice, coriander, orange peal. Again the wheat is there. Hops in the finish. That leaves a great snappy bitterness that pulls everything together.
M/D: A medium body and crisp carbonation. Snappy and refreshing. Smooth at the same time. So easy to drink. I don't know the alcohol, but a great beer to quaff and enjoy in the summer. Enough character to drink anytime though.

This is great. A wonderful Wit, and something that I want around year round. Well done.

On tap at the Common Table 2nd Anniversary Party.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is very nice with a lot of wheat and orange citrus notes, which are complimented by some coriander and quite a bit of Belgian yeast. The flavor is more of the same, with a little bit of yeast funk, as well as some pepper, orange, coriander and wheat. There is a touch of hop bitterness in the beer which makes the beer easy to drink. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

A: The beer pours a cloudy golden body with a thick sort of creamy head that quickly fades and leaves a tiny bit of lacing on the glass.

S: The smell of this beer is very intense. I am getting a strong lemon type smell mixed with other fruity smells.

T: Wow this is freaking delicious! I am getting a strong lemon flavor that seems to really linger for a long time. The beer mixes very well with the sweet grain.

M: This a very thick feeling, full bodied beer. There is a strong amount of crispness on the back of the throat as it goes down.

O: I have had three Deep Ellum beers today and everything they make is freaking delicious. WIth this beer it's the flavor for me. It just tastes so delicious and I keep coming back to it wanting more. Deep Ellum, please keep producing these amazing beers!
