This is one of brewsters' main line of beers - albeit not one of my very favourites. It is your straight up vanilla white ale. It's a bit more sour than some other white ales I've had, but is a tasty beer nonetheless.

I'll add some more to this when I have the beer more recently, this is mostly off memory.

The hazy regular wheat offering from Brewster's, this beer is bright yellow and almost looks like liquified banana. Not see-thru like its brother Wild West wheat ale (different style of course). Aroma is quite nice actually, with banana and spice leading the way, accompanied by sweet strong yeast. Taste follows the nose but is downplayed a bit. I get a bit of a sour pickle juice flavor as I proceed through the pint, and some grassy hops reveal themselves. Body is about right for a witbier but the finish is a bit astringent and coarse. Malt character is grainy and carbonation level is right on, not too much. More character than a few of Brewster's other regulars. I come down firmly on the no orange side of the debate but to each their own.

Served with a big slice of orange, which I use as a palate cleanser, and because, well, I prefer my oranges all on their own.

This beer appears a cloudy, light pale yellow colour, with two fingers of billowy white head, which leaves webbed lace as it falls away. It smells of soft white grain, banana, cloves, and some mild black pepper. The taste is more of the same, the light grainy malt evenly balanced with the banana/clove/pepper combo of flavours. The carbonation is quite muted, the body medium weight and fairly fruity, and it finishes off-dry, with more fleshy fruit and waning spice lingering.

Definitely a significant step up from the BMC attempts at the style, for local on-tap availability.
