Howling Hops Rye Wit (5.7%)

Rye Wit - 1I really wanted to like this but it’s disappointingly flat and rather grey and dreary in my glass.
And that’s a great shame because the aroma is lovely, all spiced fruity jelly sweets and sour dough, and the mix of rye and wheat makes for a sweet round creamy body with a meaty earthy backbone under a soft caramel and wafer coat.
The hops – Mosaic, Amarillo and Citra – are sharp and fresh and full of mandarins and lemons, and a sherbet zing whizzing about under lime, coriander and basil.
But however good that all sounds it flops pathetically with its lack of life.
Maybe I just got a bad bottle.
What a pity.

    It’s a nice beer out of the tap. Maybe some beers are not suited to being bottled!
