COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired from “Belgian Witbier”, 961 Witbier has a 5.3% ABV. The added coriander and orange peel add a sweet and spicy aroma. The light acidity and low bitterness of this unfiltered beer makes it perfect for those who prefer a light and sweet beer. This beer is bottle conditioned and has natural yeast sediment in the bottle.

Bottle at Sue Ellen. Pours hazy pale yellow. Taste of bananas, straws and orange. Most true to the style of the 961 brews (brewery not count) I have had.

This is a mildly tart blond ale. Supposedly, it’s a wit but I am not really getting any Belgian yeast character or spice. It’s pretty OK for a blond but it’s not very memorable, unfortunately. I can drink it though so good enough for me.

From 33 cl bottle. Aroma of sour orange and some wheat. Pours yellow and a little cloudy. Virtually no head. Wheat sweetness, some bitterness, moderate sour taste. Small bitterness afterwards.

Delicate citrus taste. My blunt nose failed to find the spices. Not crazy about it but then again I’m not generally big on witbiers.

Not a great wheat beer. Almost non-existant spice character. Very drinkable like a pilsner or lager. It is good to find a wheat beer that doesn’t overdo the fruity esters, but the flavour is way too minimal here.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Bottle from New beer. Pours cloudy yellow and thin white head. Nose and taste of wheat malt, banana taffy, lemon peel and spicy grain. Light bodied.

Old tick. Very standard beer. Very light in flavor and body. Wasn’t super sweet.

11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours light golden with a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, light wheat, and light hops. Flavor the same with hints of spice. Light texture. This beer might be great if you wanted no flavor.

Bottle last night after running a few miles and before hitting some golf balls with Joe. Clear orange pour. Little spices in aroma. Little bit of coriander and orange in the flavor. Nice and light after a run. Would probably be good after cutting the lawn too.

Bottle at cannibal chosen for country tick pup see. Pours hazy yellow, with light citrus yeasty nose. Tastes is surprisingly sweet, of lemony citrus, yeast, rock candy, and vanilla. Pretty watery though.
