Another new beer from Maltgarden, here we have a witbier dry hopped with Mosaic hops and with orange peel added.
As it pours, it looks like a pretty clear witbier with a small white head that disappears quite quickly. It gives off an aroma of clove, bubble gum and a little citrus. As the beer warms a little though the citrus aroma comes out more distinctly.
The flavour is pretty standard witbier, with a light malty backbone, banana, clove and a little spice. To start there really isn’t much hint of those Mosaic hops, but as the beer warms a lot more of the citrus flavours come out.
Moderate carbonation gives the beer a little prickle, with some grassy, herbal hop bite leading into a fairly quick finish.
A perfectly acceptable take on the Belgian witbier, though I would have liked to have tasted a little more from the Mosaic hops.
