Port City "Optimal Wit"
Port City Brewing Company - Alexandria, Virginia USA
Witbier (ABV 5%) (IBU 15)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]


Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white fizzy head that receded at a rather quick steady pace, and produced poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was mild of a light grain malt and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (orange), coriander and a hint of pepper.

The taste was lightly sweet and citrusy from the beginning, then progressed with a light spicy and mild funky yeast taste and a slight peppery ending. The flavor lasted an average duration after consumption, with a spicy yeast taste fading slowing into the background.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a carbonation that was just beyond mild.

Overall this was a very mild Witbier, both in taste and body. Although, it would make a great session beer on one of those intensely hot summer days...
