Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 05-01-2004

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.
