This summer I had high hopes of writing many beer reviews. With this summer coming to a close, I have not even come close to achieving this goal. Today, I am being disciplined to review a beer that I’ve been waiting for a few weeks to get around to reviewing. It’s a beer from one of my home state’s brewery – Michigan Brewing Company. While I’ve had many Michigan beers, this is my first one from Michigan Brewing Co. I was impressed with this witbier from this growing brewery.
When I poured it into the glass, I wasn’t surprised with the white pillowy head that quickly disappeared along with very minimal lacing. I was, however, very surprised with how light this Belgian wheat was. It is a very light, water down yellow that is slightly cloudy. Definitely the lightest color beer I’ve had in this category.
The smell is primarily of wheat, banana, and a hint of cloves. When I took the first sip, I was hit with grainy flavors with a touch of orange. Then a growing taste of bread and cloves flooded my tongue. It had a good amount of carbonation that was a nice balance with everything else going on in my mouth.
This beer is very drinkable and has good flavor despite the low alcohol content. A solid witbier.
