White Hatter by New Holland Brewing

Available at Wise Guys for $9.99 per 6pk

 

Beer Style:  Belgian Style WPA

This beer is a hybrid of sorts, part Belgian Wit and part IPA.

 

Appearance:  Slightly orange and yellow with haze. Nice one-inch head

Aroma:  Lemon, grapefruit, spice

Taste:  Coriander, spice, dry and bitter white grapefruit

Mouth-feel:  Full-bodied

Overall:  My initial thought on the beer is, “this is not for me.”  BUT about mid-way through I warmed up to what New Holland is trying to do--make a citrus hopped wit beer.  Wits are basically wheat beers that tend to finish dry.  White Hatter has a dry finish and a tart-or slightly sour-finish as well. I did not expect that.

If you like Belgian wits, but always wanted some citrus hops then this brew is for you.

White Hatter is available now, but it is a seasonal brew, so act fast.

 

Cheers,

Beer Guy
