Iron Hill Belgian Witbier
I went to Iron Hill in Lancaster for dinner with my buddy Tim when he was visiting from New york. I ordered the Belgian Witbier first, as it was a warm day and we were sitting outside. The beer pours a golden color with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma consists of lemon, wheat, and orange. The taste is smooth and sweet with lots of citrus, especially orange, flavors. There is a peppery finish with other spices as well that bite the tongue. I can’t located the alcohol content online, but if I recall, it was listed around 5.5% ABV. I thought Iron Hill’s Belgian Witbier was an excellent example of the style and the perfect beer for drinking outside in the warm summer sun.
