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 that’s Louisiana True.

Beerdedone (2603) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a ultra small white head. Aroma was light & fruity with wheat, yeast and citrus. Flavor of wheat, citrus, coriander, orange and had a crisp clean finish.

jrodooo5 (990) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Aroma is bland, appearance is average, taste is borderline offensive, and the palate is light and almost drinkable for the summer. The "sweet and subtle citrus" flavor doesn’t work for me at all. It makes a light and unmemorable brew stand out in a bad way. The finish kills this beer!

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Poured a hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, and cantaloupe. Taste is a pleasant sweat and sour with a little bit of tang, almost like a persimmon. It’s ok.

chinchill (1759) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2013
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. Even with brown glass I could see plenty of sediment in the bottom of this bottle. Not being adverse to this I gave it a little swirl then poured all but the last bit into my glass. This produced a nice thick head (keeping the appearance rating from hitting 1), but with all sorts of unappetizing whitish particles floating about. I then poured this thru a strainer into another glass, and ended up with something that looked palatable, with a light yellow gold hazy liquid crowned with a generous head. The aroma of a fruity, spicy and yeasty witbier matches the flavor. Neither is very robust. It does taste better than it smells, and there are no serious flaws in the flavor. The finish and aftertaste are the best aspects, being nicely fruity (mainly orange) and modestly wheaty. The mouthfeel is light and bit watery, even for this style. Despite the indication provided by the ample head, I felt this could use more carbonation. This is a drinkable and somewhat refreshing ale, but not a beer I’ll seek out the future.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle. Almost no aroma aside from copper pipe.Miniscule white head lingers over murky pale gold liquid. Tastes doughy, faint hint of something citrus - label says "satsuma" whatever the hell that is. Creamy mouthfeel yet bitey. This isn’t great but it could be much worse.

hfmejias (696) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 20, 2013
12 Oz. Bottle, Poured a cloudy golden color with little white head. Citrus and Floral aroma. Taste is sour, some orange a bit of wheat, crisp carbonation and quite refreshing, but not a huge fan.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 4, 2012

Kinda sour/kinda nasty taste...bitter with lingering aftertaste...no redeeming qualities

rdixon77 (661) - Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour. Very orangey and citrusy. Some grassy flavors too. Strange aftertaste - like sour lemon at the end. Not a huge fan, though it was very sessionable. I guess just slightly better than a big name wheat.

gripweed57 (632) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Hazy pale golden color. Large mousse-like white head. Fragrant lemony wheat malt aroma. Soft citrusy malt flavor hints of lemon peel. Remiscent of Belgian witbier. Bittersweet finish. Refreshing, but unassuming.
