This beer pours a hazy light gold, with a creamy, white, persistent head. The aroma initially greets the drinker with a moderate lemon ester, light tartness and a pleasant bready maltiness. A light peppery character chimes in as the beer warms. The flavor follows with moderate bready, doughy malt character, light lemon citrus backed up with a light tartness and medium-low hop bitterness that lingers through to a pleasant residual sweetness that dries out in the finish. As the beer evolves, light pome fruit emerges in the background along with a light pepper character. The medium body and fairly high carbonation contributes to the refreshing quality of this beer. A very nice interpretation of the Belgian Witbier style that is sure to please a wide variety of palates.
