COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Real Louisiana satsumas, golden wheat and the finest barley create Satsuma Harvest Wit. Pale and cloudy, like the haze on a hot summer day, this white beer has a sweet and subtle citrus flavor that is cool and refreshing. Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit is a summertime brew thatís Louisiana True.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale Łber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2009
hazy sunshine yellow color with orange tints and a white head. smells tart with a background of dusty wheat, faint spice and very faint orange notes. there is a cooked orange flavor lurking behind notes of dusty wheat bread, nearly savory yeast and a tart finish. (the orange does amplify once this is consumed straight from the bottle). it is medium bodied and almost refreshing. 6/3/5/4/13/3.0

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Glen Allen, VA. Pours a hazy peach color with a medium head and good head retention and lacing. Went away for 20 minutes and thereís still a good finger of head. Aroma is very bready with citrus and caramel notes. Taste is bready with sweet citrus notes and a bit of spice. Medum bodied. Pleasant but not very complex.

bleeng (1523) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, bright yellow with a decent looking but small white head. Nice almost hefe nose but I cannot pick up satsuma (what ever thatís supposed to smell like). Mostly just a wheat nose. Taste is very tangy, nice wheat taste, slightly sweet with some spicing. Fades on the end a bit thin. I donít get any fruit/satsuma from this at all. No alcohol taste at all. Itís a decent attempt at a Belgian wit and a good, drinkable summer beer. Not bad and a bit surprising-I was expecting much less from this beer.

lb4lb (2546) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Smell is wheaty and slightly floral and lemony. Nice smelling beer. Taste is citrusy, slightly tart, wheaty and smooth. Pretty refreshing and probably Abitaís best beer in my opinion. Medium body and carbonation. Nice.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale yellow body with a thin, white head. Smell: Nose of unmalted wheat and raw, wholesome oats with solid notes of generously added spices and, of course, the Satsuma (coming across as scent of orange and lemon). Taste: Moderately tangy wheat rounded out slightly by some smooth, crisp oats and a touch of overall sweetness. Pinch of earthy spices along with the sweetish citrus Satsuna taste. Light bitterness midway through. The wheat and the fruit carry you effortlessly to the drying, crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, though, at times, itís flirting with being watery. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Pleasantly refreshing and goes down far too easy. Itís by no means an outstanding wit, but, in my opinion, itís one of the better Abita beers available.

bottle, good orange color with big foam, aroma is weak orange, I thought satsumaís were sweet, this has an odd bitterness to it

macguy (146) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2009
This is a lovely wit. The pour is cloudy pale yellow with a nice white head. The orange flavor is just fine; fresh tasting and not overpowering. Itís a fine drink for a hot summer evening.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Bottle . A hazy light orange color pour with a thick frothy white head , lively carbonation. Aroma is of wheat malt,biscut,orange zest , and spice. Flavor is suprisingly good , some slight yeasty funk, orange, corriander,and a hint of grassyness , full body for an American made Wit , smooth creamy mouthfeel , a little spice lingering in the fiish , quite sessionable , I could drink quite a few of these at one sittig . A fun try that surpassed expectations .

unclemattie (4187) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Short 12oz bottle. Aroma of a can of mandarin orange slices in sweet syrup. Some light pepper, coriander and distant wheat. Light haze, light pale orange color. Thick creamy white head. Flavor of wheat and a hint of citron. Watery body, like most Abita. Finishes with a unique bitterness. Like chewing on a clementine peel with a hint of corrugated cardboard box. Overall, very refreshing for these summer months. I could drink the full 6pk of these.
