Witbier is a Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with a high proportion of un-malted wheat from which it derives a whitish color. Typically it is a light, tart, crisp and refreshing ale of low-alcohol strength. Baird Winter Wit is a heartier (16.4 plato) and stronger (6.8% abv) cold-season take on this classic Belgian beer style. Our grist is a blend of un-malted and malted wheat, floor-malted Pilsner and Maris Otter, with touches of carahell (adding body and color). The hopping is light and performed with a combination of New Zealand (Motueka), Czech (Saaz) and German (Tradition, Hersbrucker) varieties. The magic occurs when this ingredient combination is then fermented with our Belgian yeast strain. The result is a pleasantly tart and spicy, sprightly carbonated ale with a hazy golden hue upon which sits a billowing head of virgin-white foam. The warmth comes in the finish, just enough to furbish without interfering with the refreshment. Glorious!

Bottle from Yamaichi. Deep sweet banana aroma, which gets more intense gradually. Clear dull amber/orange color, some lace. Mild wheaty sweetness in initial, light alc. warmth, touch of citrus in mid, and light bittering over the finish. Medium body. Pleasant, lightly warming, a bit one dimensional.

6% on tap at Bungalow, thanks guys! Foamy head, lightly opaque gold. Appetizing spicy clove nose. Smooth silky mouthfeel on a medium body, tasty spice weizen notes of mostly sweet cloves & wheat. A very well done wit that hides the alcohol well.

Thought this was pretty ace. A well made wit turned up to 120. Big, beefy, though highly drinkable ala style. Everything you love about the style with some more Austrian muscle.

Draught at Bashamichi. Nose of wheat, spice, citrus, a bit of dry funk. Cloudy dull pastel gold, lace. Nice wheaty flavor, good citrus, nice bitterness to balance. Well done wit.

frothy white head. A bit grainy, but good coriander and oranges. Extremely refreshing , one of the most refreshing beers I’ve had. Wonderful, without being too complex or heavy despite the ABV.
