Braven’s flagship beer, like its Co-Founders, lives just a step off the beaten path. A delicious blend of two distinct styles, Braven White delivers the hoppy bite of an American IPA that’s balanced by the soft wheat character and hints of spice of a Belgian White.

A decent session IPA. More of a straight IPA rather than a white.

On tap at the Wicked Monk in Bay Ridge on Saturday 4/16/16. Looks crystal clear in the pint glass; this is deceptive as there is a lot more body and flavor present than one would think! I did not get spice flavor just a very balanced subtle and welcome hop presence.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of citrusy and tropical fruit hops and spices are present in the nose. The smell of tropical fruits becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste starts off with flavors of tropical fruits—mangos seem to stand out in particular—and quickly transitions to pepper-like spices. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The peppery spices also prickle your tongue a little bit.
O: This is an interesting and easy to drink hybrid IPA that combines the drinkability and spices of a witbier with the hop flavors and bitterness of an IPA.

Had a few on tap last night while out to dinner, it pours cloudy/hazy gold with a nice white head that faded and left very nice lacing and rings as it went down. Smells more like a Belgian or wit bier with peppery spices, wheat, earthy notes, lemon and toasted grains more dominant than the hoppy notes. The flavor is a bit more hoppy (which I very much liked) with a slight bitterness that balances the spices, wheat and grainy aspects. It's fairly complex and easy to drink.

Impression from a bottle bought at a grocer in Brooklyn:

I dig the leavening wheat malt presence, but I find no spices in the build. Hop profile is mediocre; hop selection probably wasn't great. It leans floral but ends up too bitter and lacks depth of flavour.

Great look and wonderful lace. Very nice bouquet. The taste is terrific. Not a burnt hop but a pleasing bitterness. This is a white ipa, you would happily drink 4-6 on a cold or warm day. I plan on searching for this in my beer store.

This was a interesting beer.. it wanted to explode with a west coast hop profile but was subdued by the white aspect. Was a interesting take on the style and something different. Definitely enjoyed this at bareburger Columbus circle in nyc.
