Looked for something on the menu at RR to start off with that wouldn't get me drunk before I tried everything else. This was the lowest ABV currently on the board. It had a lot of flavor for the low ABV. The first thing I tasted though was a dry rubber and some, ugh, I better go back inside where people aren't smoking. Okay, fresh senses now after eating some pliny bites and drinking a different beer. Back to the Little White Lie. With it's herbal aromas and the dry finish, it's almost like drinking a cup of green tea that is near the bottom and has steeped a bit too long. I can't say I'm a big fan. On to the other Belgians.

A: white/light golden/partly cloudy body, trace head, little lacing

S: yeast, wheat and lemon grass

T: slight sweet citrus, wheat, hint of lemon grass finish

M: light body, dry/crisp mouth

O: Solid overall beer, probably my least
fav RR offering. I think their is potential for
greatness here; fine summer brew and big
with the ladies.

SOLID, NOT A MUST HAVE!

Served in a tasting glass at the brewery. From notes. Reviewed 14 April 2012.

A: Very cloudy; milky-pale-yellow.

S: Soft wheat. Not much else, save mayhap a touch of spice.

T: Soft-sour fruit, Belgian yeast, and some spices. Good, but not great.

M: Thin and sour with light carbonation.

O: Not really recommended, but rather nice for the style. Won't have again, but try it if you like witbier.

B

At the source. Served the color of a creamsicle, heavy haze, dense white head retained nicely, decent lacing.

Aroma is fairly mild spices, citrus and yeast, quietly complicated, undemanding.

Taste follows the nose in being fairly mild. No note stands out. Subtle phenolic finish. Fairly bland all in all. Light creamy mouthfeel.
