BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Philadelphia Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
philadelphiabrewing.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The American poet, Walt Whitman, once portrayed a sunset over Philadelphia as “…a broad tumble of clouds, with much golden haze and profusion of beaming shaft and dazzle”. Pour yourself a bottle of Walt Wit Belgian-Style White Ale and see what he was talking about. A pinch of spice and a whisper of citrus lend complexity to this fragrant and satisfying ale.

On-tap at Porterhouse Restaurant & Brew Pub, Lahaska, PA

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with some notes of baker's yeast.
T: The taste has flavors of what with notes of lemons and grainy malts.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

Serving type: on-tap

L: Cloudy yellow. No head or lace.
S: Slight banana and clove
F: Foamy with mild bitter. Slight cereal after taste.
T: I just wish I could come up with some flowery description. It has a bit of citrus and clove and a bit of bitter, but other than that, there isn't much else.

O: Another beer that was mildly enjoyable from the bottle, but from the glass, it tells the tale.
