Notes/Commercial Description:
Witte is our version of the classic Belgian wit or "white" ale. Witte, which is actually Flemish for white, is brewed with malted and unmalted wheat, orange peel, and coriander - offering a refreshing style that showcases the Belgian talent for brewing full-flavored ales that are also light and balanced. It is pale straw in color, slightly hazy from the yeast, and topped with a huge white, fluffy head.

Witte is pleasantly light on the tongue, balanced between malt and wheat sweetness. Hops and spice with a subtle clove note backed by flavors of lemon and sweet orange give way to a dry, crisp, refreshing finish.

A: [4.00] Pours a very light yellow - almost like Mt. DEw. There are fearsome bubbles coming from everywhere. The head starts as large white bubbles at 2 fingers. The bubbles coalesce into a tighter 1 finger head. The bottle lists the ABV (5.2%) and a born on date (6/17/14). The date is *really* hard to read - it is black on black.

S: [2.75] Pungent, spicy, funky. Wheat-y? (is that a word thing?)

T: [3.00] I get strong yeast forward - but maybe that is not really the taste. It tastes like a wheat beer. Maybe some lemon zest late.

M: [4.25] For all of the bubbles and foaming the carbonation and body are just right. Pleasant on the palate.

O: [3.25] I am new to this style. It is something I avoid because I don't like it that much. I am trying to branch out and try new beers. This is a better wheat beer than others I have had. I have a hard time coming up with descriptors for what I am tasting and smelling. I may have to read some other reviews to see if other people's perceptions help me out of writers block.
