Posts Tagged ‘Whiteout Wit’

Whiteout Wit by Anchorage Brewing Company

It was a lovely fall day so we took a hike through Six Mile Run Reservoir.  This is normally where I ride my Salsa but I wasn’t sure if the trails we would be OK after the snow we had a week ago.  They were indeed OK and it was quite lovely walking through the woods.  It was a much different experience then riding through at a much higher rate of speed.  It was very relaxing.

When I got home, I decided to pop open beer #342, Whiteout Wit by Anchorage Brewing Company.  Another beer and probably my last from Alaska, this Witbier has an ABV of 6.5%.

It poured a pale yellow or gold with quite the large foamy white head.  My first thought on smelling it was it had a sour smell to it.  Wheat was the other thing I smelled along with wood (makes sense…this was aged in oak barrels).  The taste is more of that sourness with some lemon..with a bit of the bitterness like you get from chewing on the lemon peel.  It had a bready flavor to it along with a buttery, almost wine like thing going on.  The body was between light and medium and the carbonation fairly low.  It was quite easy to drink.

This was an odd bird for me.  It was quite unique with some of the qualities more like a white wine than beer.  At times, I thought I was drinking a lightly carbonated wine.  I’m not quite sure I liked this all that much…my wife enjoyed it much more than I did.  Ehh…send it to the peasants.
