“This UN­FIL­TERED Bel­gian-ish Witly-es­que-ish-ness brew fea­tures a dry twang of hoppy bit­ter­ness and is per­fect for the sum­mer­time drink­ing!”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Heavy flo­rals, mix­ing be­tween hops flo­ral notes and ac­tual flow­ers, and a slight earthy, herbal char­ac­ter sit­ting un­der­neath. Yet some­how, it doesn’t come off as per­fume-like. Wheat, with some caramel malt, mild honey, and fruity es­ters of mango, ba­nana, and grape­fruit. Dank, resinous hops dom­i­nate.” Fla­vor: “Way out of style for a wit, and the hop­pi­ness is the star of the show, rang­ing from flo­ral, catty, and fruity to piney, cit­rusy, and earthy. Nice spice char­ac­ter, and lots of big fruity es­ters of cherry, straw­berry, orange, and bub­blegum. The wheat and malt bal­ance the fla­vor, but the fin­ish is dry and bit­ter.” Over­all: “The beer drinks al­most like a dou­ble white Bel­gian IPA—TO call it a mere hopped-up wit or a white IPA is a bit of an un­der­state­ment. It’s very hoppy, with some cit­rus and pine, and a bit of yeast es­ters and spice in the back­ground.”
