Missouri, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally known as Spring Heat Spiced Wheat

We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

Poured from bottle into glass at home.

Look: Pours straw gold in color, moderately hazy with large white head. The head disappears faster than expected and

Smell: Smells of orange peel, coriander and wheat. No hoppy aroma.

Taste: Flavor of orange, spice, wheat and vanilla. No detectable hop flavor. No detectable alcohol flavor. Quite sweet and zero bitterness.

Feel: Smooth body. Full finish. Medium high carbonation.

Overall: This beer is inoffensive but uninteresting. The classic orange and coriander flavor characteristic of wits is turned up and the only flavors detectable. The sweetness is cloying and makes it so even though it is easy to drink, I do not want to reach for another.

Pours less hazy than expected. The brew is pale gold, with a moderate amount of effervescence bubbling up that lasts well glass. The pour produces 2+ fingers of shortlived, foamy, white head which leaves no appreciable lacing or surface cap & only a hint of a collar. Aroma is a little thin but very typical of the style: wheat, sweet bread, coriander, Belgian yeast, fruity esters of orange, banana & a hint of apricot. Taste is also typical of the style but like the nose is thin: wheat, pie dough, coriander, orange, banana & a faint stone fruit hint. There is something melon-like as the finish approaches. Finishes disappointingly thin & everything good or bad with the flavor profile disappears in the dry aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy, pepper prickly, finishing a little bit thin & slick. I don't know if this has oats in it but it is certainly creamy enough in the front for them to have been used.
