Avery Brewing White Rascal
After a brief tease of summer, I thought it might be nice to try something a little lighter with Avery's White Rascal. A Belgian White Ale, it's hazy, cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Smells of orange and coriander. Little bit of black pepper, too.
The taste is light and crisp. Bitter and a bit sour at first, some citrusy sweetness, then a spicy kick at the end.
I think it's a pretty good example of the style, and would be good in the right setting. Plus, at only 5.6% ABV, it's not going to blow you away.
Bonus points for the sweet label!
