463. Mother Earth Brewing Weeping Willow Wit
I received this beer as part of a beer-it-forward that I participated in earlier this year. The package I received was from North Carolina and included many local beers that are not distributed in the northeast. Being a Witbier my point of reference is Allagash White which is hard to compete with.
The beer pours a nice pale yellow with a very minimal white head. Aroma is minimal with some lemon and wheat but not a lot happening in the nose. The taste was OK with some corriander, lemon, pepper – typical witbier. Overall this is an easy drinking witbier and something I enjoyed but it does not hold up to Allagash White.

Brewers Description: This beer style is over 400 years old, and continues to enjoy overwhelming popularity. Offering low hop bitterness, it is easy to enjoy. It pours very hazy, with a light gold color… we say it’s like summertime in a glass. Bitter orange peel and fresh coriander add zest and depth to this refreshing beer. Our Wit offers a light flavor that carefully balances sweet and tart. Can you guess the secret spice?
