What the brewer says

“Bel­gian-style wit has sub­tle shades of pink and red from the hibis­cus and a bright cit­rus fla­vor from the or­ange peel and hops ad­di­tions.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Straw­berry and ba­nana with a touch of su­per over­ripe fruit sweet­ness. Very strong co­rian­der aroma with a com­plex funky tart­ness—hints of lemon­grass, rose, and light fruit.” Fla­vor: “Lots of red berry and hibis­cus with cit­rus, le­mon, tan­ger­ine, and light pep­pery notes fol­lowed by a bit of black tea. Body is thick and a bit more chewy than ex­pected for the gen­eral style. Fin­ish is dry, slight spicy, and as­trin­gent, with per­sist­ing tart fruit char­ac­ter.” Over­all: “This is not a sub­tle beer. The spicy and dry char­ac­ter of a wit pairs nicely with the tart fruit char­ac­ter from the hibis­cus. In­ter­est­ing fer­men­ta­tion char­ac­ter adds some com­plex­ity, and over­all the bal­ance is well done. This beer is about the bal­ance of sweet and sour, and it de­liv­ers both with some in­ten­sity.” 84 AROMA: 11 AP­PEAR­ANCE: 3 FLA­VOR: 17 MOUTH­FEEL: 3 OVER­ALL: 8
