A Wheat Ale brewed with American Wheat and a proprietary blend of Hefe and classic Belgian-style yeasts. A refreshing winter alternative created from the subtle fusion of two classic flavors.

Cloudy Gold Coloring. Fruity Taste. Banana, Orange? Actually a pleasing beer to taste.

I happened to try this one at Chili's Restaraunt of all places. It was either this or some other macros so I figured I would give it a shot. Turns out it goes fairly well with a nice burger. Its a bit acidic but feels almost creamy in the mouth. Easily a beer to sit back and relax with.

A very hazy beer with a thin white head when served from the tap. The aromas are of banana (dominant), and a dusty spiciness. Very banana tasting in the flavor as well, it dominates the flavor. Nice wheaty-grain character in the finish. This is certainly mislabeled as this beer is quite German in character and usually a white refers to a Belgian style of beer. Light tasting and refreshing, where I was expecting a "double" Wit style of beer brewed at winter warmer strengths. A good beer but a bit of a let down. I did not notice any of the sour character others seemed to have notice, which make me think that their "hand-bottled" samples were a bit infected.

Cloudy gold brew raising a quickly fleeting white head. Banana and pear is very pronounced in the nose. Very sour and acidic.Light bodied with a hard to find spiciness in the background. Unbalanced.

This beer reminded me more of a berliner weisse than a witbier..maybe it was the lime colored pour of the beer , i do not know. Big mustard fumes flow forth and hint slightly at salad greens..Big sourness in the flavor, another berliner weisse flashback..wheaty i suppose, but down right freshing im my opinion.

Hand bottled bottle. Light gold color, slightly hazy. Small head. Aroma is fruity with a slight roasted malt flavor as well. Medium bodied wheat. Malts are fruity and sweet. Very tart and citrusy for a wit beer. Dry finish. Clean and crisp. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer

This beer was sampled at the 12 Hour Belgian Beer Festival 2004 in San Diego and brought to us by MWSF. It poured a cloudy light yellow color with a hint of a pitiful white soapy head. As per DaSilky1, he hit it on the head when he said this smelled a little bit like mustard. Also there were definite spices and yeasts in the nose. The taste had heavy notes of pepper and possibly some ginger. Yeast and lemon also dominated the taste but it led to a surprisingly nice and smooth finish. Mildly dry finish, fairly mild carbonation level. I'm not the pepper lover, but it works well here.

This witbier pours with a cloudy pale yellow body topped by a thin head with little lacing left behind. The aroma is sweetand fruity (tropical fruits?) with a lot of yeastiness. The flavor is slightly sweet yet sourand reminds me a little of mustard (?). Light to medium bodied and slightly dry.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2005 Draught: cloudy pineapple-orange lemon juice. . . mediocre white head. I am not a huge fan of Witbiers. . . however this one was tasty: the aroma has nice lemon/citrus notes and goes easy on the banana (often times there is an artificial banana smell that I hate) here the banana peel notes added to the complexity. Palate is chewy like an average whit, but more rounded flavours combine with the yeast to make this great. There is a serious dry maltedness with coriander and orange rind that keeps me very interested.
12 oz bottle (2004 version, fresh): slightly hazed, yellow straw, thin white edge. Dull lemon hop aroma with citrus rinds and soft, doughy yeast. Palate is a bit more fizzy than the draught version and has more cloves and bananas than I remember. Equally dry and sticky and turns out that it is a bit better on draught.
