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.

I’m really not a fan of something this light but I tried it anyway. It was nice, definitely something to drink on a hot summer’s day, but I don’t see myself drinking it anywhere else. It’s got a bread feel in the mouth that makes it refreshing.

Wow... Surprised about how poorly this is being rated... Enjoyable wit, nice light body with notes of coriander and wheat... Pretty solid

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique July 2013. Hazy when poured into a glass and has a big white head. Spice and some fruit in the aroma and flavour. An easy drinking beer that would be even better on a hot day.

superspak (4675) - Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2016
330 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light body; with a watery and lightly grainy/bready mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is a decent witbier. All around solid robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

33 cl bottle, shared with Roger and Asgeir U. (Asgeir bought the bottle at the brewpub in Beirut). Hazy yellow color, moderate white head. Aroma is spices, yeast and orange/citrus. Flavor is sweet, orange, coriander, yeast. Nice, but almost too sweet.

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.

finol (3066) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
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.

Appearance: very light, hazy gold; short white head quickly vanishes. Aroma: light aroma of citrus, hint of coriander and spice. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: quick finish, with slight lingering tart wheat and citrus. Notes: Not great by any means, but not terrible. Palate is light and slightly effervescent.
