Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, wagenvolks and xpimptastikx!

Hazy golden witbier with a mild aroma of wheat and very mild citrus. Mildly expressive flavors of wheat, mild coriander, moderate bitterness, and floral notes. Tasty, though with a bit too much carbonation. Nice enough witbier--very drinkable.

3.59/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very hazy golden yellow, with vigorous, fine carbonation, and a large, dense, and persistent white head, which retains well. The lacing is thick and glass-coating.

Aroma: Bready wheat malt and coriander dominate the aroma. There is a mild note of orange rind as well.

Taste: Opens with sturdy notes of wheat, soon followed by a mild tart note. As the taste progresses, the coriander dominates. Late in the taste, there is a mild surge of bitterness. Finishes with a slight, lingering bitter note at the back of the mouth.

Mouth feel: Fairly full, with zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A very pleasant and drinkable example.

Presentation: Packaged in a short, custom eleven point one-ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Naked Nun Batch 750ml #009 Bottled 4/11/2013:

Poured into a pint glass, color was a hazy orange with nice white head, smells of spice and citrus. Taste was the same with the wheat giving it body, very easy to drink and refreshing ale.. I could drink this everyday in the hot months to come, especially on the beach.

Thanks to ApostleBrewing for this interesting beer. Bottled 3/02/12, my birthday yay, batch 001

way over carbonated as it makes a loud pppsssttt, and starts to rise up the neck, then pours a huge 4+ finger head that takes up 2/3 of the glass but fades at a decent rate with spotty lacing, over a mostly clear watery lemonade color.

Nose starts like a saison farmhouse, grassy hay and farmhouse earthy funk like, light lemon and lemongrass, some wheat aromas, light bright slightly floral spices, a little citrus and hint nutty even, as well as light Belgian golden malts, citrus comes out more as it warms.

Taste starts with citrus and light orange peel, then quick spices like coriander and clove, floral chamomile and other flower spices. Then fluffy wheat and wit flavors, light golden malts, light lemon grass, hint grassy hay and earthy wheat, faint hint of farmhouse saison funk and just a touch yeasty. It also has interesting orange vanilla taste that I have no idea where from. Finish is quite dry, light citrus, orange vanilla, creamy wit and spices lingering, faint bitterness from the spices.

Mouth Is med to lighter bodied, over carbonated even for a wit.

Overall not bad, interesting flavor that combine wit beer with saison almost, most wit spices and wheat flavors with light saison earthy funk, little yeasty, and interesting orange vanilla flavor, but over carbonated too. Still tasty and interesting beer.

A – It looks like champagne…Yup…Solid clear/yellow/white head with a lot of carbonation flowing up from the bottom. Looks pretty good.

S – Wow, when this first came out of the bottle the smell hit me in the face and I literally hated it. Like I got angry about it for a second. But I just buried my nostrils deep into her undercarriage and she smells just lovely. Tart and floral, spicy and citric with lemon. Smells great! Cool. Neat-o!

T – Interesting. Dang…hang on….hmmmmild. Kind of mild. It’s like aggressively mild though, if you catch my meaning. It is tart and has orange and lemon, with some bread and a little banana as well. But the novelty is wearing off on me. I was getting giddy for a moment there, thinking I had stepped onto something grand. Not grand, just good. It also has some rather intense barnyard funk to it. If that was dialed back a touch this ale could be very interesting. Bold ass choices have been utilized here though, and I have to respect this brewery for that…Sweetens and much of the funk turns to a nice spiciness on the finish though. I gotta say, this is a real surprise, and damn interesting. Feels good.

M – The mouthfeel is light-medium with the pedal down on the carbonation and it really is consistent, good job there as well.

O – It’s good. Definitely worth a try. I wasn’t sure what I was in for, but I’ve definitely never had anything quite like this. It really is nice but it toes the line rather precariously between being not good at all and being wholly good. As they say though, fortune favors the bold...ALSO I'm editing my review just to say this, as it continues to warm, it has a very lovely bubblegum taste to it.
