White Hatter brewed by New Holland Brewing Company, an has an ABV of 5.50% This brew pours out a cloudy amber color, with a small white head. There is a lot going on in this brew. The smell is sweet, grains, and malts. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavor. You pick up on some citrus, malts, and hops. This is a nice drinking brew. The mouthfeel is bold , but clean, and relishing. Overall I'm giving White Hatter a 4 out 5. I would buy this brew again. New Holland Brewing Company did a nice job with this one. There is also some things floating in this brew, but it a nice drinking brew.

Floral, hoppy aroma and flavor. Great with spicy food but to hoppy by itself for my taste.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into an US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, citrus, Belgian yeast and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a good burst of hops bitterness that is quickly followed by some mildly sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then some tartness comes in along with some breadiness from flavors of Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. There’s a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: The body is burnt orange, cannot see through, and it sits under a beautiful creamy cap that is vanilla ice cream colored. Excellent head retention and massive sheets of lacing.

Aroma: Cedar and spices dominate. Black pepper on the back end.

Taste: Just like the aroma, spices take over early and often. The black pepper is present and blends with the grapefruit citrus in the finish. Lots of cedar notes throughout.

Mouthfeel: Fairly dry, yet creamy as well.

Overall: Pretty tasty, better than I expected.
