Lots of people were trying this beer out, surprisingly. I wonder if they were trying it because it's light and yellow, or because they wanted a nice spicy witbier.
They served this beer to me with a presqueezed lemon wedge. I immediately pulled it out, but the lemon was already all over the beer -- more about this later. It was a cloudy pale yellow, with minimal white head. Real pale. No aroma at all, unless you count the lemon. The beer light and fizzy and you keep waiting for the taste. There is a mild wheat flavor, much less than in their Rye or Wheat ales. My tongue waited for the coriander and curacao. Nothing. After 8-10 seconds, a warm maltiness says hello on the tongue, but that's it. I put the lemon wedge back in to get some more flavor.
Grain bill: half pale malt, half wheat malt. Coriander and Curacao. Saaz. White labs #400 (interestingly, they didn't use the RB house yeast, and no munich malt =)
Overall: This is a terrible witbier. Imagine a neutral American wheat ale, then dilute with lots of water and add flour to make it cloudy. bleah.
Serving type: on-tap
