BEER INFO

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

Style: Belgian 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!

12oz can into miller lite pint glass

Appearance is a clear straw yellow with a white head that stays around quite long for the style. Tons of citrus rind in the smell and some wheat light/dry notes. Taste is again orange rindy and wheaty with some hints of yeast, finishes with a light spiciness (from the hops or coriander?). No off notes. Mouthfeel is light body and medium/high carb and some dryness (not much for the style).. Very easy to drink

An interesting with that leans heavily towards the orange rind instead of the yeast and spice. Very well suited for warm weather drinking. Nice to see a light beer like this pulled off with no off notes that are so easy to come out in these light beers. Nothing wrong with this one, I just prefer the yeasty/spicy wits.

12 ounce can -> World Market Tulip

A - hazy straw, one half inch head, no retention, and no lacing. Not a pretty looking beer at all

S - spicy smell, banana, orange peel, and coriander

T - very dry and yeasty throughout with some very spicy notes

M - decent carbonation with a slightly metallic aftertaste

O - decent to style, but not spectacular

A truly horrible beer to me due to the peculiar "Cheap Vanilla Icing" taste that I picked up. Looks decent and smells very forgettable.
I had this on tap as well.

This had a very corny flavor for a Witbier, but I did get some coriander and spice. Very light wheat but it resembled, at times, an adjunct. Lots of corn maltiness.

Pretty nice beer. Very light overtone of heffeweisen on a mostly american pale ale. It could stand to have more taste and aroma. The aroma is almost non-existent.

Very refreshing in the summer.
