River Horse Double Wit
New Jersey has so few breweries, that I like to try new brews when I see them. The River Horse Brewery is in south western NJ in Lambertville, having been there a couple of times a few years ago and enjoying the winter freeze ale, I was looking forward to another River Horse.
Be nice, this beer is highly carbonated and needs a delicate pour, but as with the style it should have a big head.
Nice straw color, big huge pillowy white head with lots of carbonation bubbles.
The beer had a strong coriander and lemon followed with a yeast bready aroma.
A very highly carbonated which was the dominate mouth feel. The Coriander was the initial flavor that melts into lemon then finishes very dry with a bit of hop bitterness.
The beer is refreshing and crisp. Although I didn’t get the purpose on the double wit, for what i can tell it is just higher in alcohol, not any maltier or spicer then a regular wit.
This beer would match up well with scallops or like shellfish.
Tasting Method: 12oz bottle
My Rating: 8.8
