BEER INFO

Brewed by:
NoDa Brewing Company
North Carolina, United States | website

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Say "salud" to summer with this mojito-inspired witbier. An extremely sessionable beer, it tastes as if mint leaves right out of the garden were muddled in the can and the rim was rubbed with fresh lime zest. Exquisitely light but still boasting a tenacious head, see why it's been called vacation in a glass.

Very interesting concept but the only thing that impressed me was the smell, dead on!

On tap at World of Beer Raleigh. Served in a pint glass with two lime wedges on the rim of the glass (not ok!).

A - golden, clear, yellow with no head nor a trace of head

S - lime, faint mint, lemon

T - wheat, lemon, lime, faintly sour

M - very light bodied, smooth, little carbonation

This is a very light, refreshing beer that would probably please most people on a hot summer day. For me though this was a weak beer but a nice concept. I would have preferred a traditional Wit to this fruit forward approach.

Served from tap into a sampler tumbler. Poured a pale golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, spearmint, bubblegum, and wheat. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, spearmint, bubblegum, and floral. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. I know what they were trying to do here and feel that they managed to pull it off, but why? I’m all for experimenting with beers, but this aspect just wasn’t that appealing for me at all. It might have been better had I mixed it with some Gin, but that would be about it. The spearmint dominated this brew without doubt. Glad I got to try this one, but I doubt I could drink more than my sampler glass of it in one sitting.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottom of can says 06/15/2015.

A- Pours a mostly clean medium golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Belgian yeast collides with vegetal mint and some lime. Hint of sulfur.

T- Lime is much more apparent in the flavor. Weak flavor of wheat and traces of mint. Very drinkable and could be considered refreshing given the right context.

M- Somewhat prickly and sharp from the medium carbonation and lime. Lightish body.

O- Decent concept that was executed as well as it could've been but I personally would've kept it as a one-off in the brewpub or whatever rather than bring it to a full-production level.
