Ellicottville Winter Witte
I picked up a case of Ellicottville Winter Witte while at the brewery on my way to Niagara Falls. The beer pours pour a light gold color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of sweet malts with fresh hops and a light lemon accent. The taste is smooth and malty with a faint hop undertone and a sour malt and light spiced finish. The alcohol content is 5.8% ABV. While this beer doesn’t pack the punch of most winter beers, it has a nice spice balance and is very refreshing.
