Stone Citrusy Wit

Once again, excuse the presence of Sonny Boy
the Cat in the back.
Stone Citrusy Wit. 
5.3% ABV. Stone Brewing Company, Escondido, CA.

Our cleverly twisted witbier with tangerine and kaffir lime leaf.

Clear, bright golden hue, full and fluffy white white head, looking great, leaving lace.

Aroma: there's that lime leaf, ever-so-leafy....bright and fruity, lightly bitter, a little bit floral, with citrus aplenty. Is it a tangerine "Bomb"? No, of course not, don't be silly.

In the mouth: light and lovely, fresh, zesty and zippy. (Yes, I said "zippy" pinhead.) Damnably drinkable. "Crushable" as the kids say these days, though neither glass nor bottle will collapse beneath my grasp today. This has all the lively and lovely elements of a wit, with that big splash of tangerine. Light, tasty, yu.

Yeah, it's a good beer, and of course, you can drink it. Another Stone success.  5.3%
