5.5% ABV, Bottle
Appearance: A hazy orangish-gold with a white head that quickly shrinks to a lingering wisp.
Aroma: A medley of floral and citrusy hops and spicy coriander.
Taste: Fruity and spicy, lots of coriander that melds into a refreshing bitter hop finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and carbonated with a smooth creaminess.
The newest addition to New Holland’s Hatter series of beers, White Hatter, is billed as a cross between a Belgian witbier and an IPA. Its witbier heritage contributes a strong note of coriander spiciness, slightly fruity yeast characteristics, and a lighter body, while it inherits from its IPA parentage a nice hoppy bitterness, all balanced with a generous wheat, oat and barley grain bill. And at a reasonably low ABV, you don’t have to share: Drink that whole 22 oz. bottle yourself!
