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.

330 bottle poured into a pint glass

A- An Aggressive Pour yields minimal head and even that is fast receding. Pours a nice golden hazy color although no lacing is present

S- Scent of orange, other citrus and coriander, although backdrop of wheat is present.

T- Lots of orange and hints of coriander, pineapple and other tropical fruits. Does have a bready undertone as well. Very mild on the whole.

M-Quite bubbly indicating high carbonation. Not bad however but not as creamy and as smooth as other beers in the style. Slight let down here.

O-Nice beer but not quite as refined nor as complex as others in its class. Nonetheless a summer beer worth guzzling again.

From 03/11/13 notes. Sara brought this back 2 days ago from her Canada work trip, so we drank it with some Thai food. 341ml bottle poured into my Portsmouth 20th Anniversary pilsner glass.

a - Pours a clear bright yellow color with two plus fingers of fluffy off white head and high carbonation evident.

s - Smells of oranges, spice, coriander, yeast, floral hops, and some light fruity malts. Nice but a tiny bit heavy on spice and not super strong. Still nice though.

t - Tastes or oranges, lemon, citrus hops, spice, coriander, yeast, bready malts, floral hops, earthy notes, fruity malts. More citrus and a nice step up from the nose; a lot more flavor.

m - Medium body that is very smooth, and low to moderate carbonation. Great mouthfeel and very easy to drink.

o - Overall a really nice witbier. Had never heard of Mill Street so wasn't expecting a ton from it, and was plesantly surprised. Nice citrus in the taste and super easy to drink, would have it again.
