Mary and I will sit down and actually review the beer ourselves (I have a review of our porter written that I need to type up), but I just wanted to share some comments we got from the home brewer’s club last night.
I went to a Tampa Bay BEERS meeting last night and after listening to a speech from Jeff from Boulder Brewing, everyone got up and went around trying everyone else’s homebrews.
I brought in two of the belgian wit, but was too nervous to walk around by myself so my gracious and personable friend DT walked around and introduced the beer for me. About twenty people tried the beer and all said it was good!
It got a hearty nod from the brewer at St. Somewhere and positive feedback and reviews from Jeff from Boulder :D
Some of the comments we got were:
- good amount of spices
- very standard and representative wit
- good balance
- too much priming sugar
- thin mouth feel, but solid taste
- not a great sipping beer, but good for gulping
- good yeast
- no unusual or bad flavors
- tasted good warm, but would be better cold
- impressive for a beginner
One guy said he didn’t normally drink light beer but he liked it. And then later came by and asked for another sample!
That’s all I can remember for now. It was really exciting!
