I get a distinctive lime note out of this one, alongside some nice yeast, mildly spicy notes and a satisfying malt base. Delicious summer easy drinker that would be tremendous out of a can poolside.

On draft at The Perch Pub & Brewery.

The beer is straw yellow and hazy with a small white cap. Lemons and herbal notes in the aroma, along with a hint of spice. Earthy with tart citrus. Light on the palate. Solid.

A vigorous pour from the growler into my Bruery tulip produces a three-finger thick, almost perfectly white head that leaves some nice lacing patterns on the sides of my glass. The beer is a pale, straw color that shows a brighter and hazier version of the same when held up to the light. The aroma is a mix of savory, grain like, herbal and definitively citrus like. A grassy, straw-like note from the grain melds with an earthy spiciness and this all anchors a bright lime zest character. This almost has a dirty spiciness to it, but in a good way, that must be influenced by the cumin character. I like that the cumin is not overtly noticeable in the nose. There is a slightly musty, phenolic character to the aroma as well as a spicy, almost green pepper like hint to the aroma.

This has a spritzy carbonation, which accentuates a dry peppery note; there is also a light tartness to this beer that is just barely there. This has a certain savory quality to it, this melds in with the cracker like grain notes, the earthy coriander, and a sort of woody herbal character; this must be contributed by the cumin, and while it profoundly influences the character of this beer, it manages to not be overtly noticeable. This has a chewy body, at least for a Wit, as this is still quite a light quaffable beer. Interesting that this has such a peppery, almost chile like spiciness to it, though it isn’t hot; since I don’t think there is actually peppers added to this, it seems to be contributed by some spicy, higher alcohols.

This has an interesting hotness to it; it seems like this is due to higher alcohols, though it isn’t really harsh in character. Good in the end, but certainly on the interesting side, I wonder if it got a bit warm, or there is just some weird spice / fermentation character interaction going on here.
