Looked for something on the menu at RR to start off with that wouldn't get me drunk before I tried everything else. This was the lowest ABV currently on the board. It had a lot of flavor for the low ABV. The first thing I tasted though was a dry rubber and some, ugh, I better go back inside where people aren't smoking. Okay, fresh senses now after eating some pliny bites and drinking a different beer. Back to the Little White Lie. With it's herbal aromas and the dry finish, it's almost like drinking a cup of green tea that is near the bottom and has steeped a bit too long. I can't say I'm a big fan. On to the other Belgians.

A: white/light golden/partly cloudy body, trace head, little lacing

S: yeast, wheat and lemon grass

T: slight sweet citrus, wheat, hint of lemon grass finish

M: light body, dry/crisp mouth

O: Solid overall beer, probably my least
fav RR offering. I think their is potential for
greatness here; fine summer brew and big
with the ladies.

SOLID, NOT A MUST HAVE!

Served in a tasting glass at the brewery. From notes. Reviewed 14 April 2012.

A: Very cloudy; milky-pale-yellow.

S: Soft wheat. Not much else, save mayhap a touch of spice.

T: Soft-sour fruit, Belgian yeast, and some spices. Good, but not great.

M: Thin and sour with light carbonation.

O: Not really recommended, but rather nice for the style. Won't have again, but try it if you like witbier.
