Get ready for a winterized version of a classic Belgian Witbier (white beer). Legend Winter White starts with a blend of Belgian malts and wheat in the mash for a rich, sweet body and tangy crispness. Spicy hops blend in the boil with coriander and orange peel. During fermentation these flavors combine harmonically with a Belgian Trappist yeast strain (banana, pear bubblegum). The creamy mouthfeel of this unique unfiltered winter warmer pairs well with salads, seafood, poultry and pork dishes.

This is easily the best of Legend's regular stable of beers, albeit a seasonal beer in this case. It tastes somewhat like a Hefe, with a nice Belgian yeast undercurrent. It's spicy, flavorful and sessionable. Sticking to the local Richmond, VA market, this is more flavorful than its younger cousin Hardywood Singel, even though it's more than 2% lower in ABV. Very underappreciated beer.

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegaarden glass.

A deep pale amber and quite brown chestnut body. Slightly cloudy, but with lots of visible carbonation making it's way up to a creamy head. Simple two finger head, solid white with a creamy appearance if a little small. This is a real dark witbier I must say.

Nice aromatic hints of corriander and cardamom like spices. Sweet notes and quite a big estery brew going on here. Sensing classic like candi sugar but with not much else going on. A real impressive aroma, but a bit big on the sweet side.

The sweet spice notes of clove, cardamom and sugars really come forth on the palate on first sip. Big booming almost dry hot brown spice all over, large and inviting. Has a big sensing feel of a winter warmer, but with less boozy character. Some controlled sweetness but not too large, but grabbing into minty and large menthol aftertaste.

Looses some classic witbier character in the mix but comes off as quite a unique beer, with a huge candy cane like aroma. Probably a solid Christmas beer ironically for the time, but doesn't really remind me of a witbier so much.
