24.3 oz bottle from Whole Foods in Mt. P - poured into a standard pint glass...
A: Cloudy, pale gold; about one-finger's worth of effervescent white head dies down fast; lots of tiny bubbles shooting towards the surface.
S: Light grains; light sweet malt notes; some cracker; yeasty tartness and some zest.
T: Light wheaty graininess followed by the yeast / zest combo finish which provides a slightly tart finish; just a hint of hop bitterness to even things out.
M: Light and high carbonation; crisp and nice.
D: Refreshingly drinkable; probably the best Belgian style wit I've had! Almost thirst quenching -

a pretty famous beer here, it has eluded me somehow until now. picked this up under 6 bucks over at colorado liquor mart, who is still chugging along with some hidden gems in the back there. a nice take on a wit, different than almost all of them because of (what i perceive anyway) this fresh ginger in here. a blonde beer with a golden flare, clear for the style, and while there are a ton of bubbles in it, no head really ever builds up. the nose is almost like ginger ale, its so potent to me, i have to believe there is real ginger in it. belgian type yeast is also fruity, while some malt other than wheat i think makes an appearance, giving some light caramel flavors as a base. ginger and cracked pepper in the finish, this could pass as a saison on the yeast character alone, less belgian than saison in that regard. super refreshing, and even though it looks flat, there are a lot of bubbles here in solution. my first beer from this operation is a winner, i like this a lot, different from the masses but still comfortably within what the style asks for. perfect hot weather refresher. super dig it.
