Freetail Brewing in San Antonio Texas is a wonderful spot for beer lovers. They have about 10-11 different beers on tap at all times, plus usually a cask of something tasty. They serve food and have TVs and such, and the food is quite tasty, especially the pizza. They now have 22oz bombers for take-out too!
Today I’m having a nice lunch and trying their St Patrick’s day special: Spirulina Witbier.
Well this was a St Patrick’s Day special here, I could tell immediately when I saw the color: GREEN. Nicely green too, slightly cloudy, had a decent head and left great lacing behind.
Had a typically witbier aroma, wheaty and spicy with cloves and yeast. Flavor followed suit in spades, if I didn’t see the color it would be hard to tell this was a specialty brew and not just a delicious witbier.
Body was light and very drinkable, I dare to say it’s the perfect St Patty’s beer (especially with the low ABV, 3.9%, so you could pound many of them and still remain standing!).
Always recommend a trip to Freetail for their great beers, this one is no exception.
Oh, and amazingly The Mars Volta was playing on the overhead music! That’s friggin’ awesome!!
