Notes: Starting with Castle Pils, the finest Belgian malt available, we complete the grain bill with nearly 50% unmalted white wheat and just a touch of oats for a mouthfeel that is substantial and silky smooth. Liberal doses of coriander, Curacao and sweet orange peels add a pleasant citrus/herbal character to the aroma and flavor. We brought in a special Belgian yeast most notable for producing a tart complexity to create a slight sweet-sour flavor. Garnished with a slice of blood orange for an equally unique presentation.

Growler from the brewpub... Brenda and I stopped in to meet up with BeerTwinkie (Spencer) .... This growler was shared with the Boise "Beer Elite" (inflatablechair, buckeyeboy, ditmier, reinheitsgematt) and was very well received..

Poured a cloudy lite orange yellow with a good head..

Nose was spot on for a Witbier.. maybe a tad bit too much orange peel.. but nobody was counting.. nice coriander spice seemed pretty fresh.

Flavor was again pretty much perfect... I expect an actual "witbier" yeast was used ... a good acidity that only comes from the yeast was present.. great carbonation and the mouthfeel had a nice creamy element..

Good to great attempt at a classic style.. Thanks Spencer for the brews... your generosity will definitely not be forgotten.
