Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Mill St Belgian style Wit is a refreshing beer made with a unique blend of ingredients. The soft texture and pale colour comes from the use of wheat. Coriander, orange peel and our special yeast produce the complexity and depth of fruity flavours contained within the glass. This beer is unfiltered. The resulting cloudiness gave rise to the term Wit, or White beer.

One of the better offerings from Mill Steet. Not even close to as good as other Wits out there (I.e Driftwood) but a decent Wit on a hot day. For the price - I can see having a few of these in the fridge through the summer months.

This is a good wit. I recommend at least trying it. You can't go wrong. I found it a little bland for my taste, but it is a finely crafted, well-made beer.

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegaarden tumbler glass.

Classic creamed bleach white head, with some moderate retention. The head slowly settles to a 4mm thin puck, sitting on a very dark lemon yellow body. A bit of clarity through this glass, but still kind of hazy with the cloudiness creeping away towards the edges.

Classic straightforward solid wit bier on the nose so far. A little soapy and bubblegum smelling, but classic coriander and sweet spice content. Hints of chewy wheat slightly and an overall solid aroma.

Pretty much uneventful, but solid on the palate. Hinds of candy like gum, and minimal chewy palate on the malt side. Some spiced finishes, but has more of that sweet sucrose than most wits. Finishes quite clean, with a little bit of orange fruit ever slightly.

A pretty solid basic witbier, not real exciting, but pretty good overall.
