A - Pours light orange small white head good lacing

S - Grapefruit and Hops mostly with a little citrus

T - Delicious, very hoppy but the grapefruit and citrus flavors balance out the bitterness while
keeping the hoppy flavor.

M - Well carbonated, very easy to drink goes down almost as smooth as a shandy

O - Would definitely recommend. If you like Mad Hatter you will enjoy White Hatter. Really hits the spot if you want some hops in your life but arn't feeling the bitterness of an ipa.

Yes, very good indeed. Couldn't quite put my finger on the unique flavor... but on reading other review, yes I think it is grapefruit rind. Good summer brew. Only problem is that its hit or miss on whether stores have in stock. (The remainder of this review is to bump me up to the 250 character minimum.)

A - Pouring very clear pale yellow straw, I imagine that towards the bottom, a little more sediment may make it in to the beer. A sturdy white hat of foam caps the inviting beer leaving patchy lace on the glass.

S - White Hatter exhibits a fresh hop aroma upon first whiff indicating something quite special to come... Bold citrus zest is first and foremost with lemon-lime and grapefruit leading the way followed by some orange peel, perhaps. Mild spices continue to the wit trend while delicately playing off the hops and soft wheat in the background. A pale malt base ties it all together for a great aroma!

T - Unique to say the least, pine resin and citrusy, biting lupulin gland from fresh hops jump out big here, just not in the conventional way. Plenty of spice aids in really creating a unique experience with lemongrass and coriander flavors blending together as the evolving taste incorporates soft wheat flavors and a tasty grainy pale malt.

M - Wheat and oats give the mouthfeel a creamy, smooth entry that lasts from the first splash on the tongue to the swallow but the light body and effervescent carbonation liven things up. Moderate hoppy bitterness and a dry bite finish out with great balance and a draw back for another sip.

O - New Holland's White Hatter is a harmonious masterpiece that could quite possibly be my favorite of their offerings! This delicious treat skillfully blends a moderately hopped IPA with the subtleties and drinkability of a witbier for a refreshing, super-tasty outcome! Hats off to you New Holland!

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, 2012 vintage(June release). Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, grapefruit, pepper, wheat, coriander, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great strength and balance. Taste of lemon, pepper, clove, orange zest, herbal, wheat, earth, floral, coriander, grapefruit, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of citrus, pepper, coriander, wheat, clove, earth, floral, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Medium high carbonation and medium body; with a slightly sticky and quite crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed after the finish as expected. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian White. Awesome balance of hops flavor, spices, and yeast character; and extremely crisp and smooth to drink. Fantastic, and I really did not expect it to be as good as it was. A welcomed surprise.
