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.

Yum. This was fresh, crisp, and cooling. It’s definitely a good summer beer. It’s not too sweet and very easy to drink.

A pale, pasty, yellow beer, thats barely coloudy, pours with a 1 inch head and holds, because its dense and thick. Mouthfeel is velvety. Aroma is faint wood, banana, and cilantro. Flavor is lemon, wheat, mineral, and weak citrus. Yeah, this will turn your saturday into a sunday...

Aroma: Very floral and malty with strong wheat aroma, slight smell of date. Appearance: Light Gold with thick white head leaving delicate lacing on the glass. I gave this a 2 on appearance because there is a lot of particulate material floating around, like the first runnings of a mash. Taste: Malt at the front, followed by nice sweetens, tastes like a possible decoction mash, finish is a light apricot and malt flavor. Very low bitterness. Palate: Medium body, appropriate for taste and style. Overall: I would buy this beer again, although it is listed as a "Malt Beverage" the use of fruits and herbs are very well proportioned to the grain and hops. The better of the Abita I have had.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 A special on this date at the Abita Brew Pub. Pours a golden orange juice like color with a small white head. Leaves only little bit of lacing. Nose is distinctly citrus and yeasty. Taste is an interesting and (going by the name and commercial description); predictable twist on the traditional Belgian Wit. It tastes like a nice classic wit with the taste of satsuma (a variety of orange of Oriental origin and widely grown in Louisiana, for those unfamiliar) nicely blended in. Spices like coriander and clove also apparent in a nicely balanced combination. Sweet, herby/spice finish.

The aroma is sweet and citrusy. The appearance is awesome - a beautiful big creamy head on top of a cloudy yellow white ale. The flavor wheat and citrus without a lot of the spice you get in a normal white ale. The body is medium to light and goes down smooth. This would be great on a hot summer day.

Good summer or seasonal wit. Taste is spicy. Good feel and not long lasting in mouth. Good overall.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a full head. Oranges and banana on the nose. Orange peel and banana flavors with a hint of clove. Nice carb. Very good seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz shorty bottle. Thick yellow orange, with a fluffy white head. The aroma is all Satsuma, lots of tangy citrus. Tangy orange taste as well, with some pleasant wheat to smooth it out. There is also some vanilla in the aftertaste. Overall a pretty good White beer, exceeding my expectations.
