In this blog, we are going to get into another beer from Roscoe’s Hop House, which is called Belgian White. Please, go back and read for the small and lack of information on this brewery in my blog on their Pale Ale. Let us get into the beer.
This beer is a Belgian Style White. Why is it clear? It is clear golden color without a head. It has a heavy coriander smell to the beer. This beer taste like Blue Moon and has that American Belgian Style White Ale taste on it. This beer could fool a lot of beer drinkers because it looks like a pilsner in the glass.
Here is a descripation from the beer bottle:
Harkening back to old world brewing styles, Roscoe’s Hop House uses the highest quality malts and hops to bring forth highly complex flavors of citrus, coriander and subtle spice. With a nod to the past, this nicely balanced unfiltered ale has a uniquely crisp taste and exceptionally smooth finish.
Here is a list of awards that this beer won from their website (www.roscoeshophouse.com):

In closing, the problem I have with this beer is simple. It does not look like a Belgian White Ale. They claim that is unfiltered but it is very clear and looks like a pilsner. If you are at a party, this beer could fool a few beer drinkers. It has the taste and smell of a Belgian White Ale. I am not a fan of an of these beer styles, which are whites, wheat, and hefweizen. I have tryed several of these beers I have to say this one is not that good. The only thing this beer has going for it. It is at a very low price then the rest of the craft beers in the store. I would not make a special trip to hunt this beer down. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
