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!

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.

Had this on tap at the Kannapolis Intimidator baseball game. Pours with a nice 1 finger head. Smell is sweet malts. Flavor is similar. Kind of disappointing on both fronts. When I have a witbier, I look forward to the the Belgian yeast flavor. This has none at all. Boring.

Look: Light golden and clear in appearance.

Smell: A sweet aroma with citrus and a bit of floral.

Taste: Flavors of citrus, floral with a pale malt backbone and slightly earthy flavors.

Feel: It has a sweet finish. It is also a smooth drinking ale.

Overall: It is a little subtle in the aromas and the taste is a bit simple. It seemed to lack the fruity aroma and flavor that is associate with other brews in the same category. Overall it was good.
