New beers on tap: Pine Belt Pale Ale and Wasatch White

From Conroe, Texas, Pine Belt Pale Ale is a deep copper colored American pale ale with a substantial malt backbone accented with British crystal malts with aggressive hop bitterness (IBU: 45) and substantial American hop flavor and aroma. The alcohol by volume ("ABV") is a comfortable 6.3%. From a review at Beer Advocate:
"This one smells of pine, fresh hops, ample orange and lemon citrus, and has a nice caramel finish. The taste is very similar, beginning with the hops, pine, and some earthen tones before a blast of citrus takes over; again, the finish is a rich, almost amplified caramel and toffee flavor. The mouth is very smooth, and finishes well; not dry or sticky, just clean."

From Salt Lake City, Utah we have Wasatch White, an easy-drinking Belgian-style White Ale with 6% ABV. Wasatch White is seasoned with orange peel and coriander. From a review at Dallas Beer Snobs:
"The beer is a fine example of a Belgian Wit beer with a golden, hazy pour with not much head to speak of. The smell is of coriander, banana, citrus and malts and the flavors follow along that same line. You will find the texture to be quite thin, but not watery, and low carbonation."
