Brisk light-bodied witbier contrasts mild white-peppered lemony grapefruit bittering and pleasing herbal nip against sweet banana-clove dalliance and mandarin orange wisp above doughy wheat base. On tap at Valhalla, stylish lemony orange-peeled coriander spicing and delicate herbal nuances came thru.
On tap at Taphouse 15, easygoing baseball season brew stays ‘crisp, dry and balanced.’ Perfumed citrus spicing gently caresses astringent Noble-Saaz hop earthiness and pale wheat malting, leaving a spritzy lemony orange tingle on the tongue. In the bottle, pleasantly brusque flavors mainly at the backend. Sharp hop-spiced citric fruiting, coniferous hop pining and musky mineral grains coalesce in a moderate setting. Yellow grapefruit pith and lemon rind bittering gain lingered aspirin-like astringency.
On tap at Growler & Gill, dry lemony orange-tangerine tartness picks up mild sugar spicing to prickle papery pilsner malt base of light-bodied kolsch.
On tap at Ambulance, easygoing Imperial IPA retains crisp citric intrigue as grapefruit, orange, tangerine and clementine overtones pick up sugar-spiced pale malting and pine-needled tingle to contrast astringent herbal hop splotch.
