White Zombie Ale – Catawba Valley Brewing Company

Today’s review finds us drinking the White Zombie Ale out of the Catawba Valley Brewing Company of South Green Street in Morganton. In the 1932 classic horror movie “White Zombie” starring Bela Lugosi, a man turns to a witch doctor to lure the woman he loves away from her fiance, but instead turns her into a zombie. Catawba doesn’t say this hazy golden white ale, their interpretation of a Belgian White Ale, will turn anyone into a zombie but they promise a very refreshing low alcohol beer with a “wonderfully complex, fruity and spicy aroma” and a subtle hops “detected with the smack of the tongue”. Tongue smacking and zombies aside, what will the NCBeerGuys think of this 4.7% ABV brew?
