Next on today’s list of beers from people I have traded with is Dreamless from The Veil Brewing Company out of Richmond VA. It was sent to me in the first trade I have done with a gentleman named Mike, a nice guy who lives in Richmond and is one of the biggest Springsteen fans I have ever encountered.
It was canned 7/7, and, since it’s a witbier, I drank it from my witbier glass. It’s pretty straightforward for the style, so I won’t be writing as much about it as the El Paraiso BA stout from earlier.
It pours hazy with an almost cloudy darker straw color. Smell has strong lemon and orange peel notes with a slight funk. Taste is just what I want from this style – it’s got some breadiness, some funk, and a good amount of citrus, with plenty of lemony and orange peel zestiness. For a low ABV, it’s got a mildly strong body. Very full mouth filling, although slightly dry. Very easy to drink, and really enjoyable for a warm day.
