Just like you, but different
Our spiced California style Wit is both refreshing and complex. Brewed with wheat, coriander, California orange peel and local orange blossom honey. From the first sip to the last you’ll find subtle flavors of bread, spice, citrus and a thirst quenching orange honey finish.
One of those beers that feels compelled to tell you what you’re going to taste which should have been a bit of a flag, but I allow some leeway as it’s a big bottle with a lot of real estate to fill in.
It’s a very pale golden colour, lively carbonation, and musty hops. The taste is overwhelmed by the bubbles. Either it’s too cold or they’re making it up about the smorgasbord of flavours that should be present, perhaps I left them in the bottle when I poured the first part.
I like a wheat beer, I enjoy the fruits under the alcohol, the front and lingering taste. This isn’t any of those things. It’s all very ‘meh’, which means the pdubyah-o-meter arbitrarily really doesn’t like this and makes it a massive swing-and-a-miss at 4 arbitrary things from it’s equally arbitrary number.
If two thumbs up was the best this would be 1/2 of 1 thumb. Very disappointing,and disappointed in this. Without anything to reference, I can’t find a best before date on the bottle, but I did find an importers sticker saying that it’d been imported over a year ago! (July 11) Quelle horreur!
I’d say based on that, that I might be drinking a beer that is past its’ best, way way way past, if I was being charitable.
If I was being uncharitable, I’d say avoid. I would say however take the extra two minutes to find a date. Lesson learnt. Gives self an uppercut.
Can’t change my score on this, it was worth every one of the 4 arbitrary things, sadly making this possibly one of the worst beers I’ve had in ages.
