4.17/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

APPEARANCE: A finger and a half of stark white foam sits gently on top of a crystal clear, pale, bright, yellow beer. A few champagne bubbles slowly work their way from the bottom of the glass to the bottom of the foam as the head slowly recedes. This is a very good looking beer.

SMELL: Quite a unique, complex smell here; grass, some fruit aromas (lemon is big), plenty of spice and just a very faint hint of barnyard funk lurking beneath it all.

TASTE: Like the nose, there is a LOT going on in here. A ton of sweet fruit flavors attack the palate right off the bat, but a strong black pepper spiciness tames that sweetness a touch. A little oak and vanilla flirt with the palate as well before a slight grassy and citrusy hop flavor washes the sip down.

MOUTHFEEL: Light to medium bodies, the carbonation in Unified Theory is very lively with an excellent, champagne-like sparkle. While it is sweet to start, the finish dries out quite nicely, paving the way for the next sip.

OVERALL: This is a far more interesting beer than any other Wit I’ve had. Big enough to hold up during these winter months, but will be a nice summer sipper as well.

oak aged imperial wit. pours hazy and radiant golden to yellow with a lasting one inch pure white head. smells like new american oak, belgian yeast, and orchard fruit. flavor is surprisingly oaky, i guess they use those oak sirals for this. also some mild sweet notes, maybe honey, and a floral but not quite perfumy essence as well. mouthfeel is great, lively carbonation and a medium body, dry in the finish with the wood being the last flavor to fade out. overall this is an excellent brew, and an ambitious undertaking for a brand new brewery. i was more than impressed with this one.
