Exclusively for Old Chicago Restaurants - Buddha’s Hand witbier, or wheat beer, is brewed in the Belgian tradition with an American twist. Cascade hops along with a grain bill of Two Row, White Wheat, Caramel 30, Carapils and Torified Wheat afford this ale its 5.5% ABV and 17 IBU’s. What makes the hazy ale so unique is the addition of the fragrant Buddha’s hand citron plant fruit. The tropical fruit is segmented into finger-like sections, resembling the hand of Buddha, and responsible for a crisp, refreshing and lightly citrusy flavor perfect for summer enjoyment.

Golden brew that wasn’t what I would call hazy but rather looked like it had speckles floating about in it. Had to look at that for a while before taking a taste because never seen one that looked like bits of dirt in it. They would settle over time and then when the glass was disturbed they began to float around again. I did eventually drink it though. Spice aroma and a good bit of spice taste as well. Coriander is most clear but appears to have other spices too. Never tried Buddhas hand before so not sure some of the flavors I am getting are from this variety of citron or not. Good brew and thinking maybe the specs are from the citron or possibly one of the spices.

hazy gold pour big froth white head. Aroma lemons, wheat, ozone, dough. Tastes sweet, corriander, black pepper banana belgian yeast. Needs more citrus/ cacade hops not coming through much. Zesty tiny bubbles + sludgy palate.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Small head with a light cloudy blonde color. Nice lingering sour taste that masks any bitterness that those 17 IBUs can offer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Burned toast, unmalted wheat, and coriander nose. Milky yellow, medium head. Very bready lemon and coriander. Breadiest wit of all time! Wow was I caught off guard. I was expecting an ultra citrusy wit, and this is completely the opposite. It’s toasty and malt forward, with only light citrus accents, none of which resemble citron all that much. A good beer, very unique, but not as advertised.

I tried this beer for the first time on a whim (it was on sale) was not disappointed in the least. Wouldn’t expect less from this brewery.

Draft. Poured hazy white yellow color with an average creamy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate yeast, hop and sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet citrus finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a refreshing beer.
