Review - Portsmouth Brewery's Witt
No commercial description available.
The Portsmouth Witt pours a cloudy, dirty, yellow body with a small fizzy whitehead. The lacing was rather thin, but was fairly tacky. The body settles to a cloudy orange amber color that was fully opaque. The nose detected a very powerful clove and sweet banana aroma. A doughy yeast aroma and herbs were also present. After a quick carbonation feel, the initial taste was rather sweet and slightly sour while moving to a bitter but subtle finish. With an active carbonation feel, the creamy film that was left on the palate dissolves and leaves the palate rather dry and with a slight alcohol burn.
