Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Previously known as Wahoo Wheat Ale

A fresh, unfiltered brew perfect for lazy summer days.
Our Wahoo White is brewed with unfiltered, un-malted wheat and oats that give it a distinctive cloudy complexity. True to the Belgian tradition, this Witbier boasts a refreshing, citrusy flavor thanks to the orange peel and coriander we add to the boil. This makes Wahoo an ideal beer for year-round beach weather.

Was the variety pack skunked? That's what I thought. This and the yellowtail pale were some of the least appealing beers I've had from a reputable brewery in a while. However the sculpin in the case was its usual sculpinrific self. All this beer did was make me drink it as fast as possible to get it over with. Citrus? As in a tablespoon of frozen orange juice conventrate in a gallon of water. BLUE MOON has more flavor and complexity. Granted maybe this style is more susceptible to mishandling on the voyage from CA to PA than Sculpin...or it was a bad batch. Only way I'd try it again would be if someone handed it to me....on draft.....at the brewery.....in a sample glass. Not a fan of the new label. Sculpin rules! Wahoo drools!

Refreshing and drinkable, but a bit on the mild side and not my typical style of choice. Nonetheless, worth checking out if you enjoy wits.
