Driftwood Brewing Co. – White Bark Wheat Ale Review

The Driftwood White Bark Wheat Ale pours a lightly clouded, whitish-yellow colour. This is topped with a thick head that is as white as fresh linens. The aroma is strong of coriander with an orange, citrus florality that hits the nose immediately. A spicy malt first hits the tongue where the coriander is strong. This settles slightly to let the orange peel notes peek through before finishing again with coriander. The strongest part of this ale is definitely the smell while the taste is surprisingly more mellow than expected. The spicy, citrus flavour is still strong but not so far as to make you forget that it is still a beer, and a good one at that.
