Belgian-style white ale; 5.9% ABV
White Rabbit is like spring in a glass. It is spiced with coriander and orange zest, which give the beer a clean, crisp flavor profile with a dry finish. It is one of those beers that feels refreshing, with a light body that is far from filling. White Rabbit just might be one of our favorite spring seasonals, one that will make you wish spring break lasted all year.
German-style hefeweizen; 5.4% ABV
Ranger Creek’s Love Struck Hefe is a great example of a traditional hefeweizen with a very crisp, malty, citrusy profile, and just a little banana nose. It goes down easy, and holds it carbonation nicely as you sip it to completion (or did I just chug that?). This is a year-round release, so you can enjoy this great hefe any time you like. But something about spring makes it taste so much better.
Hefeweizen; 5.3% ABV
This Austin staple is a year-round must, but it is fitting for floating the river, hiking, or just hanging out on a patio. This traditional German-style hefeweizen is the true embodiment of springtime in Austin. Live Oak just recently started canning these beauties, so you can take them anywhere. It has a bouquet of banana and clove that transfers onto the palate with a softly sweet body. It is a true gem of a beer that you will be glad you experienced.
