Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States
ballastpoint.com

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.

Appearance: A very hazy shade of bright yellow/pale orange.

Overall: Aroma is orange fruit with noticeable wheat and a lightly sweet cereal scent. The flavor is refreshing yet complex with fruit and citrus flavors jumping out. This beer is light and crisp, yet genuinely refreshing. Very nice beer for a hot day.

Had it on tap at the Station House in Forrest Hills, NY.
Pours a hazy straw and slightly orange color. The modest bubbly head soon dissipates into a very thin and broken ring like lace that soon disappears. The aroma is kind of clean at first with only a mild scent of orange peel. Then, a sweet honey, floral and perfume like aroma hit the nose and is pleasant.
This is a light bodied and crisp beer. The taste is typical Witbier; orange peel, wheat and coriander.
Overall, this is a beer that is easy to drink. It is certainly light enough to be a session, however, due to the thin body and non complexity of the taste, I do not find it flavorful enough to have more than one of.
