LAGUNITAS STOOPID WIT

Enlighteningly well-designed witbier places white-peppered Belgian yeast inside a floral-spiced citrus setting. Brisk lemon zest brightens lavender tea-like hibiscus, jasmine and chrysanthemum florality as well as light peppercorn seasoning. Honeyed glaze sweetens pineapple, peach and banana subsidies while latent mandarin orange, curacao orange, yellow grapefruit and pineapple illusions flutter by. A complex wit bettering nearly all competitors.

LAGUNITAS WILCO TANGO FOXTROT ALE

Silken cola-hued ‘robust jobless recovery’ strong ale lacks expectant full-bodied assertion, but not persuasive character. Ashen piney-hopped nuttiness juxtaposes soft-watered cinnamon-spiced floral-fruited opening. Tangy grapefruit, pineapple, cherry and apricot fruitage revs up juicy bubblegum midst. Earthen red and purple grape esters bring mild bourbon-burgundy-port illusions to the surface by soft evergreen finish of limited ’10 release. On tap at Plank Pizza (2016), dark-roasted mocha nuttiness picked up more pronounced earthen hop-charred bittering and less fruit-spiced tangent.
