What the brewers say

“This UNFILTERED Belgian-ish Wit-ly-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.”
