BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery
United States
rockbottom.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
For this award-winning witbier, we use coriander and orange peel instead of straight hops to impart a unique citrus spice over a slightly sour body. The technique stretches all the way back to Medieval time, and the orange and coriander gruit has become the standard identifier for a Belgian White.

Rock Bottom's award-winning White Ale is handcrafted on-site by each restaurant's expert brewmaster to his or her exacting tolerance and preference.

I went to the Rock Bottom in Cincinnati, though because it's a chain I am going to assume the beers carry over the same. I ordered a flight of six of their standard beers and as I tried each one I found that each was spot on to the style. The remarkable thing is how unremarkable the beers are. Don't get me wrong, they are well worth the try and certainly above average but they are produced for a mass market. So as lazy as it may be I am going to simply say that this beer was a text book example of the style without breaking out and setting itself above.

On tap. Poured a light gold color with a one finger, white head of bubbly foam. It smelled of coriander, lemon zest and some yeastiness. It tasted of lemon, wheat and spices.
