BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Catawba Brewing Co.
North Carolina, United States
catawbabrewing.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Although named as a Halloween seasonal, Zombie's refreshing taste makes it a year round staple. It is brewed in the Belgian witbier tradition of using unmalted wheat to create the light body and white sheen. Additions of coriander and orange peel give it a fruity and spicy character, while the hops are subtle and lightly detected. Don't be scared to blow the head off a Zombie and drink up!

Decent, solid wit. Pours a hazy gold color with a few fingers of white, rocky head. Cap settles to a few floating streaks, spotty lacing. Aromas of wheat and white pepper, coriander. Flavor is coriander and peppery upfront, with a wheat body followed by a lemony/orange finish. Decent body. Solid wit, nothing flashy.

Look - 3.5 - hazy yellowish gold, white head, lacing present. Almost opaque. Large floaters hanging around

Taste 3.25 sweetness from malt, lots of yeast character, but not the greatest yeast character. No hop bitterness or flavor. Almost corn/honey like sweetness but not cloying

Smell 3.5 - sweet honey, malty, slightly spicy. Smells of grainy wheat.

Feel 3.5 medium carbonation, medium light body. Spritzy bubbles. No alcohol warmth. Maybe a little on the thin side for body.

Overall nothing to special to bring home, but not bad or unenjoyable. Needs more characters​ I'm flavor and body IMO.
