Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley & wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance.

Bottled 11/29/12

Appearance: Pours a super hazy yellow color with no head or lacing.

Smell: Smells like your typical Witbier, but not quite as banana and clovey, which is a good thing... I tend to find that sort of nose both extremely redundant and predictable. Unfortunately though, the first smell I got from this beer was major skunk... fortunately though, it doesn't last longer than a few moments.

Taste: It is what it is... a Witbier. Banana and clove on the front of the tongue, with prickly carbonation. After taste briefly tastes of ... cherries? And then there's a faint wheat aftertaste.

Overall, I liked it more with each sip... normally Witbiers have that super sweet banana, clove, and especially, CORIANDER taste, but this isn't like that much at all. A respectable seasonal/sessionable beer.
