A golden/orange color and cloudy body greet the consumer upon first pour of this beer. The nose is one of spices and citrus. The foam level is slight and settles down quickly.

This ale offers up flavors of wheat malt, oranges, coriander, and caramel. Upon further examination, I was able to pick up on flavors of honey and there are other citrus notes and spices in the background. A little bit of yeast flavor rounds out the tasting. The body of the beer is creamy and medium in weight and there is a somewhat alcoholic presence in the flavor but it fades quickly.

Whitsun ale is a good beer with a good deal of complexity going on inside its hazy body. There is some sediment in each bottle so don’t be alarmed if you pour and discover a few floaters in your glass. This is expected and while it may not make for a perfect appearance, it doesn’t adversely affect the taste in any way.

I love a great wheat beer and this one is a pretty good one overall. It isn’t the greatest I have ever tried but there is enough artisan craftsmanship and good taste to keep me coming back for more.
