Art Brew: O’Kanes Wit (England: Belgium Style White: 4.7% ABV)

Visual: Opaque cloudy orange yellow with a medium sheer white bubbly head.

Nose: Lemon, wheat, orange.

Body: Lemon, wheat. Caramel. Golden syrup. White wine. Vanilla and grapefruit.

Finish: Light wheat. Orange, lemon, somewhat sour. Grapes.

Conclusion: A pretty bog standard Belgium style wit. Refreshing and citrus marked with a wine like finish but none of the Belgium polish. Or so it seems initially. It feels like it has all the right elements but no song and dance to it.

So why did I say initially?

because half way through you start getting vanilla and grapefruit developing in a call to the new craft beer style, adding a nice sharp and sweet body to get your attention back.

Not perfect, but it does a nice mix of Belgium and craft.
