Growler

A - Clear golden yellow, with visible carbonation, and a firm white head that fades to a rim edge. Mild lacing.

S - A nose full of yeast and grain, some funky sourness. Slight hints of honey and sugar, spice.

T - Out front is the sweetness of honey and sugars, which turns toward a subtle bitterness, but which closes with a more sour end. The sweetness is dialed way up, more than most Witbiers I've had, but it is not an unpleasant element, just a stylistic choice.

M - Very brisk, somewhat tart on the end, and quite a quick drinker if you are in the right mood.

O - I enjoyed this option. It is not among the top tier of American-made Belgian pales and whites, but is a pleasant drinker for the weekend.

Poured a wonderful semi-deep golden color with wonderful head, and near wonderful lacing. Very deep wheat aromas, great straw tinges, and a nice pepperiness at the end. Great thick malty wheat flavors with a nice balancing spiciness at the end that didn't overpower it, making sure it was an excellent summer brew. Went down fantastic, very smooth, while being rich and thick.

A: Appearance is slightly hazy yellowish-orange color with light head.

S: Aroma is fairly simple with wheat and grassy notes prevailing.

T: Taste is also pretty straight forward - some cereal malts but mostly a grassy hop character. Not much tartness to speak of so it’s definitely not in line with the Belgian style.

M: Palate is slightly thin, good carbonation and mild bitter finish.

O: Definitely more an American Wheat Ale and a below average one at that.
