Double Wit by Great Divide

Ratebeer 3.43 90th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +5
  • nose: wheat, spicy, yeast and lemon citrus
  • very assertive yeast blast lots of citrus fruits
  • long upfront yeast and ample carbonation
  • slightly acidic but not very astringent
Aftertaste +1
  • alcohol warmth with yeast, citrus tartness that faded too quickly
Alcohol Content +1 8.1%

Value +1

This a great strong wit. Certainly puts Hoegaarden to shame.

Ingame Enhancement +1

I don't care but it deserves the extra point.

Overall 9/10

Whoever says witbiers are bland and tasteless need to step away from the Rickard's White and grab one of these.

Dunkel Weiss Great Divide Brewing

Dunkel Weiss - Great Divide Brewing
Dark Wheat Ale/Dunkelweizen

This a different take on the wheat beer. The addition of darker malts adds flavours of roast and chocolate.

Ratebeer 3.28 70th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +3

Your nose is tickled with a sweet aroma of sherry, cherries and toffee. The mouthfeel is very full with rich toffee, a little roast and yeasty biscuits. Bananas and cloves are still there, just a little hard to find.

Aftertaste +2

The finish is very resiny-like with a long coating of glycerin, yeast and tart wheat.

Alcohol Content +1 6.2%

Value 0

This was a nice beer, but it was $7.50US. It was a little above average price for the quality of beer.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Rumor has it that Meterman will be back soon in the L4D world. He needs to stop getting things done and spend more time in a dark room alone.

Overall 5/10

If you are particular to the wheat beers, this might provide a richer experience.
