18 Jan 2013: Alfie's on 9th Ave, New York. Pint from the tap, my first ever beer from Maine (I think). Chalkboard claimed 5.2% ABV.
Cloudy, yellow with a fading white head. Typical for the style.
Sweeter than I expected: however what do I know about American brewed Witbiers (not a lot really)?
The nose was all wheat and corriander with both orange and lemon traces too. These carried on into the taste with the sweeter orange hints along with the wheat taking centre stage.
OK more that great, but a pleasant refreshing beer that went down rather well.
Serving type: on-tap

The color is a decently hazy straw golden color. Pretty color with a white one finger head.
The aroma has a mix of wheat ale and Belgian strong pale. There’s lemon peel and a floral orange, but also a fruity Belgian yeast breadiness. It’s up lifting instead of a bigger malt or wheat. There still is a biscuit or slight wheat in there. Also a Belgian spiciness of some coriander and pepper. There’s almost a fruity hoppy character like a quality pale ale like All Day or Bitter American.
This is a delicious quality wheat beer. You get this refreshing orange peel and lemon and then it rolls in with a gentle wheat and malt, but nothing too heavy that doesn’t leave this being a sessionable and delicious beer.
The aftertaste has a bit of lemon and orange peel with some drying. Wonderful drying notes.
A well made beer that is quite refreshing, though not packed with much sweetness. Hoegaarden blind actually held up really well against this.

Big thanks to celticfutblclub for this bottle...
A: Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with one full finger of pure white head. The foam settles fairly quickly, leaving a light frothy ring along the edges of the glass.
S: The nose is sweet, a touch spicy, and with mild citrus. I get banana, lemon, lime, bubblegum, clove, and light pepper. Smells super inviting.
T: This beer starts out sweet with a nice mild malt bill and some bananas and a touch of citrus. As the beer moves to the middle, I get some spice and bubblegum. The finish is effervescent with clove, yeast, and banana.
M: Light bodied beer. The flavors are bright and refreshing as they envelop the palate. Mild spice in the middle, but a great balance throughout. Clean finish.
O: Excellent witbier. It's up there with Dancing Man Wheat. I could drink a ton of this on a hot summer day.
