Legion Brewing Company FlickerDaze American Wheat Ale, 5% ABV is brewed in Charlotte, North Carolina with Zappa hops and Riverbend malt. FlickerDaze pours a yellow color with a thin clear/white head that quickly fades into nothing with some fruity aromas, lemon, and candy peach, with light wheat notes. The nose of FlickerDaze is light at best. There is a very light sour taste with peach and light lemon wheat notes that come to a light sour finish of light fruits and an aftertaste of very light sour wheat that has a light mouthfeel. I don’t find Legion Brewing Company FlickerDaze American Wheat Ale to be good, and I give it a D+. It’s just too light on flavor for me and the little sourness to it aren’t great, I wouldn’t recommend trying Legion Brewing Company FlickerDaze American Wheat Ale. Please stay safe and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

One of the best Belgian styles to have in the summertime is wit or white ale, which is just a spiced wheat beer with orange peel or orange zest and a few other spices added depending on how a brewery and/or a brewery brews it. The Belgian Wit style is very popular and lots of brewers brew it. I rather enjoy the style very much, and I find wits to be refreshing and tasty. In the North Carolina Mountains, we have the Highland Brewing Company in Asheville. The Highland Brewing Company makes a Belgian Wit or white ale called Razor wit, 4.5% ABV and is USBTC grand champion in the Wit category. Razor wit a summer seasonal beer brewed with cumin, coriander, grains of paradise, ginger root, sweet orange peel, and bitter orange peel. Razor wit pours a slightly hazy and cloudy yellow color with a three-finger bright white head, with a decent amount of light coming through with some nice carbonation bubble racing to the head. The aroma is much like a Belgian style Wit should be with a nice scent of coriander and sweet orange and a slight hint of lemon. The taste is good with nice subtle spice from the coriander and other spices used and there is a nice sweet orange taste was well. The taste at first has a nice softness to it then fades into the spices and a just the smallest bitter orange taste on the back of your tongue. The taste is nice and refreshing. Razor wit has a nice spiced finish that doesn’t overpower your taste buds and has an aftertaste of lemon and slightly spiced orange flavors that work well together to make a nice pleasant aftertaste. This is a good Belgian style Wit, so I would give this an A. All the ingredients work well with each other creating a nice balanced Witbier. I would recommend try Highland Brewing Company Razor Wit I know I would enjoy it every time. So go out and try Razor Wit and see what you think of it. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
