Flavor

Despite the beer’s name, its the aroma and taste of coriander and yeast that really pop against a bright backbone of tart citrus. A lovely combination.

Mouthfeel

The feel is light and crisp with ample carbonation.

Overall

The Citrusy Wit presents well. And despite its name, the presence of coriander and yeast are what really pop in the Citrusy Wit. But the citrus does make for a nicely tart counter in that bright malt backbone. It’s a lovely combination in what produces a very refreshing, easy-drinking beer.

Recommended Pairings

Stone Brewing recommends the following food pairings with their Citrusy Wit: appetizers of ceviche, artichoke hearts, grilled shrimp skewers, dim sum, calamari, and ricotta crostini with mint; salads of caprese, crab, beet and goat cheese, spinach with fresh strawberries and balsamic vinaigrette, fennel, and endive; entreés of fish tacos, lobster, lemon chicken, mussels, herbed leek risotto, and cedar-smoked salmon; cheeses of Brillat-Savarin, bucheron, Humboldt Fog, Purple Haze, and Capriole Sofia; sweets of lemon bar, pineapple sorbet, strawberry shortcake, key lime pie, and fruit salad.
