Review: STL Witbier

Saint Louis Witbier

Appearance: Dull yellow thick with wheat and no carbonation, Kyle said he primed it and it has some carbonation but I think the bottle had too much head space.

Aroma: Huge fruits and bread. This yeast strain is great, I am a big fan.

Flavor: Grainy and Belgian with lots of esters adding what almost seems like a tart fruit flavor. I'd wonder if I didn't know.

Mouth feel: Under carbonated but not terribly so. Could have more carbonation.

Overall: A miss because of carbonation issues; a hit on the flavors. I think the recipe was great, the yeast was great, I might force carb a batch soon. This will be a good base for my next wit with flowers.
