Appearance is a murky yellow with white head

Smell is malty with some fruit hints

Taste is typical wit beer..good fruit flavor with a wheat base

Feel is somewhat more dry than other wits

Overall a good beer that was part of a variety pack. Definitely drinkable which is surprising given the 6+ ABV

Rivertowne Grateful White has a thick, cream, off-white head, a murky, orange-gold appearance, which becomes murkier, after the "swish & pour", and lots of lacing, left behind, on the glass. The aroma is of sweet white wheat bread, some spice, and a touch of banana, and a touch of bubble gum. Taste is of yeasty, zingy, sweet, fruity white wheat bread, some mild, light crust, and white pepper. Mouthfeel is low-heavy, and Grateful White finishes medium white.

Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow gold with white head. Belgian yeast notes, spice, coriander and citrus, with cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweet bread like note.

Poured into a pint glass.

4.0 A: Cloudy golden wheat color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is about average and a solid finger of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Big hefty wheat, coriander. Interesting mix of lemon and bubblegum. Hints of spicy clove and pepper. Simple, yet sophisticated. Very nice.

4.0 T: Like the nose, this tastes great. Strong neutral wheat. Moderate coriander with peppery yeastiness. Clove underneath. Subtle bubblegum and lemon notes.

4.5 M: Medium, velvety body. Good moderate carbonation. Super creamy. Just what I want here.

4.25 D: A very well brewed witbier.
