Sometimes you go out on a limb, and sometimes the branch breaks underneath you. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't worth the money for a six pack...
W'09 Belgian Style Ale by Widmer Brothers Brewing Company
I'm immediately struck by the moulded glass, with a compass rose and a W inlaid in the glass itself. A ring around the bottom says "Widmer Brothers Brewing Company," as if the red and beige label would leave any doubt as to who produced this. The label is a bit much, and makes the beer seem like it's trying too hard. The beer itself pours quickly, with little carbonation. It's a transparent, pale copper, perhaps a few hues from the colour of honey.
Immediately, the odour is sweet, with a heavy citrus hand. The beer isn't particularly odiferous, even in the most encouraging of stem-ware. Despite the low carbonation, the beer has a crisp feel in the mouth. The flavour principally dominated by wheat and yeast, definitely disappointing. Before leaving the mouth dry, there seems to be a few final notes of sweetness from the W'09. It's moderately heavy at 6.5% ABV, and would be easy enough to mindlessly drink. An unengaging beer. C+: 3.05/5
