Swans Tessier's Witbier

Swan's Tessier's Withier
Belgian White

Ratebeer 2.89 34th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +4

This was enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. The nose is always better at the source; lemon/orange rind, yeast, grass but oddly no wheat noted. Each mouthful was very refreshing with a medium mouthfeel of grass, light citrus, slightly spicy and wheat. There was less carbonation than one would expect from a wit and usually creamy.
Aftertaste +1

The ending was dry and crisp, with just a slight wheat creaminess.

Alcohol Content 0 5%
Value +1

Perhaps one of the best witbeers so far. I wish I had grabbed one from the CBAW next door.
Ingame Enhancement 0

This was one of the few highlight of the ARC beer cask search.
Overall 6/10

Perhaps you think Rickard's White is a true witbeer? No are wrong; this is a witbeer.
