Queen City Craft--Doin' Thyme
Doin' Thyme is an adorably named witbier from Charlotte, North Carolina. It's brewed by the Birdsong Brewing Co. and came to me via my pals MM and AM. It's a pretty mild brew at 4.3% and pours a milky white, yellow, with a bright white head.
There is a slightly sweet and slightly spicy nose, with a fresh, veggie feel. The flavour has some classic wit notes, with banana smoothness, but there is also a substantial thyme presence that really comes through.
Really agreeable, tasty, and unusual, Doin' Thyme is a lovely little brew. It lacks oomph and charge, but delivers a pleasing vibe. I'd have liked a bit more ballast, but I can live with it, for its subtlety and originality.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
