Stone Cit­rusy Wit

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - Wheat With Fruit -

ABV: 5.3% | IBUS: 35 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says:

“We punched up our wit with the dy­namic duo of tan­ger­ine and kaf­fir lime leaf. Each dryly re­fresh­ing, cit­rusy sip of this co­rian­der-spiced, tan­ger­ine-in­fused, Man­da­rina Bavaria-hopped cre­ation will sat­isfy even the most hard­core fan.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lightly fruity, with orange and grape­fruit and cit­rus peel, per­fume, and a bit skunky and dank. Herbal and wild­flower and flo­ral retronasal notes, and lime that folds into the hops nose. Raw wort, caramel sweet­ness, and hops tea.” Fla­vor: “The hops are ag­gres­sive, woody, spicy, dank, and come off a bit rough. Orange and grape­fruit, with lime and pithy bit­ter­ness—this is pretty tart and could use more sweet­ness to bal­ance. Per­fumey and flo­ral notes are wo­ven in, but the beer still comes off a bit rough. Thick mouth­feel, with low acid­ity and a dry, harsh bit­ter­ness.” Over­all: “This is a wheat beer for IPA fans. The kaf­fir lime is nice, but over­all, the beer is bit­ter and harsh with the dank/skunky hops and pithy cit­rus notes. That said, it could be tilted in your fa­vor.”
