I've just started dry hopping this with [EDIT] 1.5oz of Amarillo and .5oz of Columbus in 5 gallons in the keg. I'll be taking "samples" along the way
After a few hours the dry hops are very pronounced already, with quite a bit of a bite to them. I hope that will mellow out.
I doubt it's a clone, but definitely yummy.
I should get a six pack and do some more comparative tasting notes, but I really prefer it fresh from the tap. Much better than bottles.
I'll be brewing this again, hopefully closer to the pin. I wonder if using Witbier yeast WY3944 would be the actual ticket. The Belgian Ardennes (WY3522) leaves quite a bit of bubblegum flavor, extra pronounced in the slightly sweet beer. Not sure if it should be there.
