The Hatter comes in many iterations these days, but today, he is like me - an old White guy and in a bottle from The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop, no less.
From the bottle: "Flavorfully blends the soft malt, fruity esters and delicate spcing of a Belgian White with hoppy citrus notes of an IPA. Pleasant hints of tropical fruit are framed with orange peel, chamomile, coriander and grains of paradise."; "Pairings: fish, grilled chicken, hard cheeses."
I agitated the beer prior to my usual aggro pour and as such, I stirred things up real good. It came rushing out, filling the glass with a pseudo-cascade and producing two fingers of mountainous, fluffy, bone-white head that slowly fell, leaving great lacing in its wake. Color was a VERY cloudy orangish-yellow (SRM = > 7, < 9). Nose had a musty citrusiness, kind of lemony, but also very dry and dusty like newspapers in an attic. Mouthfeel was soft, caressing my poor, bruised tongue like an old friend. This was like hops tea! It was really mellow, with loads of flavor, like lemon zest, mango, peach, pear, garden flowers and some black pepper. i felt like I was being lulled into a nap. The finish was quite dry, thanks to the spices, but on a hot, humid afternoon, I really enjoyed it.

This is my first review of a New Holland beer on here. Had this poured into a weizen glass. Pale golden color, clearer than I would have expected. Subtle malt and spice flavors, neither of which were as strong as I expected, not a lot of the flavors you'd expect to get from a wheat come through. Soft mouthfeel, didn't have a ton of head on this one. It was decent, just a little ho-hum.
