This was not very good. Didnít really remind me of a wit at all. Dirty water type of taste. Thin body and texture. Blah.

Light fruit and yeast aroma. Head is gone before you know it. Slight chill haze orange-yellow. Crisp, lightly tart. Watery.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Yellow. Strong aroma of citrus. Dominant flavor is orange and there is a lot of it. Also coriander. Sweet, light, and refreshing. Different from any other wit I have had. Good.

The white head crowning the rich amber color stays longer than most Belgian style beers Iíve had. But this is more American than Belgium. The orange is hinted and not overpowering. Must be very cold. Nice on a hot day.

Amber with white head. As expected, the aroma was wheaty but faint. Watery body and texture. Flavor was bland. Not a fan of witbiers but there are so many better. Donít waste your time on this. If, however, you are dehydrating and need fluids, this will do if the local waterís no good.

Ok, so itís not the best beer in the world, but had it while sitting on a poarch cooking out, and getting ready for the 4th of July fireworks. Perfect for cooking out and relaxing with friends.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
The wheat was apparent in the aroma. There was no head and the body was pale. The palate was tingly and the flavor was not too wheaty, almost tangy and...was that a hint of bubblegum in the aftertaste?

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 Moderate head, golden color-appearance was more that of a pils than a wit, with a mild but fresh aroma of wheat, banana and cilantro. Tingly mouthfeel with delicate orange-lemon flavors and a hint of sweet malt. Short finish. This one seems to have strayed a bit from the corral stylewise, but still it was an exceptionally clean and well proportioned brew. Retaste 2005-lighter in color and much closer to style this year, appeared unfiltered and with a good dollop of yeast in the bottom. Seemed spicier in the coriander dept. and all in all was a pretty good Wit.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Whereís the wit? Brilliant light amber body with a white effervescent head. Looks like an APA. Aroma is pilsener-malty with a bit of sweet orange. Flavor is a little sweetly malty with a soda-like orange flavor and slight astringent bitterness.

Draft, at the Berghoff Cafe, Chicago. Beer is more yellow and clear than other wits Iíve had; probably filtered for retail sale. First sip is a big lemon zest thatís a little suprising. Then you get the more subtle notes of banana and clove, and other fruit traces. Good clean finish. This is hardly what I believe to be the wit style, but itís a refreshing lawnmower beer.
