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.

Pours clear and pale gold with a white head. A relatively quick fade leave a bit of lace. Smell lovely with melon and light bubble gum notes. A light bit of wheat and yeast. Taste is bang on with a wheat graininess and Belgian wit level of of fruitiness. A touch of hefe like banana and clove subtly flowing. Bubble gum with sweet light malt. Finish is crisp and mild characterized by a lemony zestiness. Smooth carbonation and lighter body make this a superb summer quaffer. This is the ultimate lawn mower beer and stands head and shoulders above the usual fare. Low abv makes this a no brainer when you are busy and thirsty.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Straw yellow with minimal head and lacing.

Smell - Wheat, minor hop aroma, Some yeasts and spices. Rather light on the nose.

Taste - First sip is wheat with some minor floral fruits and a little orange, lemon and coriander spice flavor. A little bready and grainy but not much else going on.

Mouthfeel - Very light, tongue gets wheat, some fruits, palate gets spices, some sugars and grainy/bready malts. Aftertaste is a bit watery and wheat influenced.

Overall - Rather weak and bland. Super easy to drink but minimal flavors, combined with the expensive price tag, this is nothing id ever buy again, nor really care to drink again.
