Never had heard of this brewery, but a mean lookin' Hippo caught my attention in the single bottles section. Snagged a 12oz for $2 and change. American Belgian Wits have a tendency to fall short in the category, but I'm hoping this one can stand up to the style's reputation.

Poured into a Belgian glass, this appears a hazy orange hue with a marginal head that soon reduces into a thin white film floating atop the beer.

Pungent citrus aromas invade my senses immediately, with a strong emphasis on orange and lemon. Common Belgian peppery spiciness is distinct and detectable.

Taste follows the lead of the nose. Orange, coriander and white pepper takes the front end, fading into some wheat and yeast funkiness. Alcohol shows a bit more presence in the back end as the beer warms. Not too shabby.

Medium bodied with a semi-dry finish. Seems a little heavier than most other wits; has a bit more bite to it.

Overall, not the greatest representation of the style, but pretty tasty stuff. I liked it well enough, and definitely worth a try if you're into the style.
