Wit, or white, bier is a Belgian style unfiltered wheat beer. “Phil’s” is brewed with both malted and un-malted wheat and flavored with coriander and bitter orange peel. The resulting beer is refreshing and flavorful. And by the way, it’s not named after that Phil. O.G. 1042 I.B.U. 12

On draft at the Memphis location. Hazy pale gold body with virtually no head (like all Boscos beers). Has a fruity and herbal aroma. The taste is a bit overwhelmed by coriander and orange peel and the body isn’t as thick as you expect from a witbier. Very drinkable, though.

On tap at Nashville Brew Pub. No longer named after Phil, whoever Phil is. Cloudy opaque yellow orange in the glass with fizzy white head almost totally gone by the time you’re ready to sip. Smells of dark yeast and a bit of coriander; I can also understand the description below as "creamy," althouth I wouldn’t have gone quite that far. Yeasty in the mouth, orange peel is dominant, soft carbonation and light to medium body is nice and refreshing. Finish blossoms a bit into fruity flavors, like mango and unsour pineapple, and then the corriander and a bit of dry yeastiness takes over. Not that developed, all the flavors seem sort of flat (except for the beginning of the finish). Overall, it seems kind of muddled. Not bad, quite tasty actually, just not that much above average. Worth the dollars during happy hour.

Nashville. Cloudy, yellow... looks like witbier. "Creamy" banana and pina colada aroma with evident coriander and a suggestion of lemongrass. Flavor is clean and mild, white bread, citrus. Somewhat shy, but well-balanced and refreshing. SWMBO liked it with Boscos Asian chicken salad.

Tap at the brewpub in Nashville Wow, it’s murky Cap’n. Clouded tan with a lacing white head. Spicy lime, honey, and something unknown nose. Taste is grains of paradiseish. Sweet lemony ginger notes too. Leaves a feeling like having just licked a stamp or envelope that is unpleasant, but the rest ain’t bad. Ap-4 ar-7 tas-6 pal-2 ov-14

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2006 Tap at Nashville brewpub. Pours a hazy orange gold with a faint white head. Aroma of yeast esters, orange peel, lemon, spices...ahh like a wit should smell. Great mouthfeel. The wheat malt and orange zest really stand out, but the coriander is there as an accent. Finished clean, dry and fruity. Not a very sweet wit, but there is enough there to make me happy. Nicely done.

Tasted on tap at Nashville Brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow gold color. Small sized rocky head. Aroma is fruity, lemon, lemongrass, some orange peel as well. A medium bodied wit. Malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of orange and orange peel flavors. Touch of coriander and clove. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing. Nice lively carbonation. Good balance. Nice dry finish. Very tasty, not too sweet, wit. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Mine wasn’t called Phil’s, but otherwise it had the same name. The body was very hazy light yellow with a white head. The aroma was leamons and peaches with a hint of the corriander. The taste was yeasty with orange peels and meidum corriander spice. A little heavy on the citrus character.

Poured a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was heavy on the lemon and a floral and yeast background. Flavor was citrusy with lemon in the front and a bit of orange with a yeast addition. Nice refreshing witbier.

Tap. Pours pale cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aromas of banana and citrus hop, particularly orange and lemon. Flavor of fizzy citrus hop with a yeasty finish. Crisp and refreshing light palate.
