22oz bottle (release #38) - nice to see more of this American pan Rocky Mountain brewery's offerings available up here.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with three chubby-ass fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy bone-white head, which leaves some defrosting windshield lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of grainy wheat malt, underripe orange zest, edgy coriander and cardamom, a further hint of white pepper spice, and plain leafy, weedy, and fairly floral hop bitters. The taste is bready and slightly doughy pale malt, a lesser spicy wheatiness, some lemon, orange, and indistinct grapefruit rind acerbity, muddled earthy spice (coriander maybe the most prominent), faintly estery yeast, and more gentle weedy, herbal, and floral green hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly robust in its thorough and palate-teasing frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and sort of smooth, as the spicy and mildly yeasty essences seem to forget a number of their social graces here. It finishes trending dry, the same characters from the mouthfeel holding onto the reins as we ride this one out to pasture.

Overall, a rather peppy and engaging version of the style, with the spices and fruit really bringing it on, like Donkey Kong, or whatever. Refreshing, and quite easy to put back, especially as the past few days have felt more akin to the dog days of summer.

A: Pours hazy stray with a 2” off white foam collar that clings to the side of the glass leaving thick lace.
S: Has a floral, spicy nose with orange, cardamom and some others over fresh white bread.
T: It starts wheaty seasoned with orange, cardamom and spices and finishes with a gentle hop bitter touch and a hint of tartness.
M: Medium body and above average carbonation with traces of velvety slickness.
O: This is an easy to drink beer with a nice Belgian character. My wife and I had this with Szechuan food and it paired perfectly.

I really liked this beer, even though I'm not huge into witbiers. Appearance was cloudy but not overly so, and the taste was very refreshing. Definitely could pick out the coriander and orange peel in the description. I've known about Epic for a while but this was my first taste of their products. I'll be back for others for sure.
