On tap at Morris Tap & Grill, fine hybridized witbier reveals black-peppered rosebud flowering for sweet coriander-spiced orange peel zesting and mildly creamed white wheat malting. Floral citrus spicing gains herbal resonance over time.
Fickly offbeat witbier ‘brewed with spices’ combines sharp orange-peeled lemon meringue tartness, cider-bound champagne souring, rummy banana daiquiri wisp and wayward peach sway for obtusely fruitful deviation. Peppery herbal-licked coriander, cardamom and clove spicing and musky cellar funk crowd the honeyed wheat back end.
Brusquely complex straw-cleared witbier relies less on stylish coriander-spiced orange peel zesting and more on musky herbal funk, picking up limey lemon rot souring and wispy banana-clove sweetness over its delicate pilsner malt base. White-peppered lemongrass, ginger, fennel and parsley herbage speckle its spryly summertime Citra-hopped spritz.
On tap at Biggie’s, indefinite Belgian wit nearly masks stylish orange-peeled coriander sweetness and lemon-candied carbolic spritz with grassy hop musk and dank grain murk. Wispy cumin and grains of paradise adjuncts never fully integrate, though tertiary tangerine, clementine and mandarin orange illusions sweeten the backend.
Cloying Belgian-styled wheat ale with candied blood orange and tangerine tang retains sinewy corn syruping as well as meager coriander spicing. Sticky soda-like carbolic sugaring becomes soapy and unsettling.
Adventurous aluminum-yellowed lightweight brings dainty white-wined champagne yeast to prickly pear adjunct for hybridized witbier. Bubbly champagne sparkle perks up pear-stewed lemon rot and green apple sourness, leaving stylish orange-peeled coriander spicing in the dust.
On tap at The Oath, well-balanced light body drapes herbal lemondrops upon perfumed orange peel subtlety and wispy perfumed banana-clove tartness, subsiding too soon over its light white wheat backdrop.
