Date: 12/14/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Bottle/Draught: 12 oz brown bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Straw to very pale yellow in color. Some what hazy but with the color being so pale lots of light gets in. Beautiful white foam head with decent lacing and retention. The carbonation settled to a thin carbonation ring around the beer.
Aroma: Strong citrus aroma of orange zest amped up by Belgian style yeast with clove spice. Slight malt flavor that consists of hay.
Taste: The spices kick up a bit in the taste and become more peppery. The orange is there with a hint of lemon giving it a slight cleaning product flavor. The malts are more hearty in the flavor as wheats are stronger. Possibly because of the oats.
Mouthfeel: This is what I wanted to talk about in this beer... The oats really do something nice for the mouthfeel of the beer by making it much smoother in quality. They thin out the beers body which is light medium but I think the trade off is really worth it. Little bit of an acid bite from the citrus lasts on the tongue

An excellent example of a witbier. Blows Blue Moon out of the water!
