Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Wow, this is a keeper, stocker upper, keep arounder, gotta have. The mouthfeel on this one is awesome. What a treat. A solid Witbier from Legend. Their beers share a kinship and are rich and full of flavor. However I have no other Witbier to compare it to. I have no problem clearing the shelf and sharing this one with my fellow beer lovers.

Way to go Legend!

A- Dark straw color with a foamy finger and a half of foam. Plenty of carbonation flowing up the sides of the glass. it's like a dark champagne.

S- Cloves and honey, with a bit of yeast. Nothing fancy, just straight forward smells

T- Yeast flavor with spice on the end, It's nothing overpowering, Makes it very drinkable.

M- Creamy but not overcarbonated as I would have guessed. Smooth on the palate.

O- It's nothing to write home about but it still a good beer. Even now in April it's still very drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A - murky, dark orange with a big, thick, dense, foamy, pure white head that has decent retention

S - some peppery spice, coriander, some Belgian yeast funk

T - Belgian yeast, typical Belgian esters, some faint spice

M - medium bodied, crisp, well carbonated

This is not what I expected as a Witbier, but it's not a bad beer. I will judge this beer to style so it will receive a lower rating than if I reviewed it on its flavor and overall merits as a beer. As a witbier, it's lacking in traditional flavor. The spice is present but that is all I could find to resemble a true Witbier. The flavor more resembles a BPA due to the big esters and fuller than expected body. Overall, this is a decent beer, but a lackluster Witbier. It's probably worth a try for BPA fans looking for something local in VA or north NC.
