Brewed by:
Free Will Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our traditionally-styled Belgian White Ale is crafted using a variety of malts and spices. Rather than competing for individual attention these ingredients harmonize for a complex, well-rounded, drinking experience. A silky feeling envelops the palate; subtle sweetness balances the spice before yielding to a delicate, tart, finish that is highlighted with a touch of white pepper.

Pours a cloudy banana smoothie color with a rich white topper. Effective swirlie action.

Some kind of slight tropical stinginess, like mango rind, jumps at me across waves of yeast-muck, wheat, citrus peel, and coriander. Halfway between orange-y and lemon-y. Maybe even a hint of lime. A lot of flamboyant yeast esters and phenols. Hops are somewhat noticeable.

My girlfriend acted as a guinea pig and snuck a swig before me. She's kind of right with her description. It tastes like bittered "watered down orange juice", in a way. Only semi-sweet, and with an astringent array of spicing, this is low on wheat malts and high(er) on yeast and hops (at least, for the style). The hops are giving the finish a bitter pith slug and mild grapefruit flavors, on-top of chalky yeast, which leans a little toward the American Pale Wheat style. The orange peel and selection of spices keeps it right between the yellow lines on Witbier Avenue.

Boring, but unoffensive. Has some girth to make it interesting. Carbonation gives it some texture. A little gritty, but easy enough.
