Beer Of The Week: Comrade Brewing The Spector

I’ll start off by saying that the taproom description of Comrade Brewing Co.‘s The Spector is rather misleading. They call it a Belgian-style wit ale, but other than perhaps some Belgian yeast there’s not much wit-iness going on; no coriander, orange peel, or cloudiness.20170104_194959_hdr However once you get past the words and into the beer things get good fast. The beer has a light body  and a color that looks darker than a wit, with some copper and honey tones. The honey theme flows into the flavor, with virtually non-existant hops – just a slight bittering perhaps. Overall it seemed most like a honey wheat beer given the color, body, and flavoring, so if those types of beers appeal to you I’d highly encourage you to get a sample.
