This past weekend was the perfect weather to review a few American craft beers. The weather was comfortable at the beginning of the weekend and ending hot and humid yesterday. Lighter beers seemed to be the best bet for the sake of refreshment.
When I reach for beers out of the refrigerator in the basement, I imagine myself taking a drink and depending on my mood, if it would suffice. So the refreshment theme was in full motion when I grabbed Weeping Willow Wit by Mother Earth Brewing a Belgian witbier. The beer had all the signs of being a solid witbier, including coriander, wheat, Belgian yeast, and lemon. All the aromas and flavors were well balanced greatly increasing the ability to appreciate the beer. A light body and sharp carbonation finish off a well rounded beer. I would definitely seek this beer out again. 8.6/10 – Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 8 (15%), and Drinkability: 9 (35%).
In hindsight, I realize this witbier is the best I have tasted to date. Now that makes me want more. Enjoy!
