Wasatch White Label Belgian-Style White Ale

Today I'm drinking Wasatch White Label Belgian-Style White Ale brewed by Utah Brewers Cooperative in Salt Lake City, Utah. This was a sample provided to me by the brewery. The label is, well, white (with gold accents. There is a simple grain twirly swirly design in the middle. The back label says they are going for "ultimate drinkability". Born 07/27/11.

Wheat aroma with bright lemon tartness and an unmistakeable coriander smell. Nice wheat flavors to start are brought out even more by a nicely prickly and aggressive carbonation. The coriander is also strong and accents the wheat flavors well. Lemony citrus is apparent and offers a little relief from the thick texture of the wheat. Simple, classic in style and presentation.

This is a nice, flavorful beer. The lightly bitter finish adds to the refreshment. The 6.0% alcohol is only noticeable as the finish is also a bit dry. More wheat flavors and texture are left behind on the palate. Check it out. Nicely done.
