COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A scrumptious beer that will beguile even the most tentative of micro drinkers. Flaked red wheat, flaked oats, acidulated malt and pilsen malt combine to create its traditional white gold color. Coriander and sweet orange peel give it a little Belgian wang and an extremely refreshing palate.

Had this beer on 8/7/2004. Color is a hazy gold with good carbonation and nice head. Aroma is sweet with fruity back tones. Taste is very Hefe like. Starting with light medium body that goes down fizzy. Finish comes on with a mild sweet flavor that has banana like taste to it with hints of coriander. On the very end is a slight hop flavor with a mild bitterness. Its as good as any Hefe out there.

Bottle @ home. Bottle named Bristol Wit. Same abv as this release, so it appears it is a re-release. Cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. A bit spicy, somewhat citrusy, wheat malty aroma. Quite easy drinking, sweet wheat malty, a little peppery spicy, somewhat orange citrusy, light coriander, delicious flavor. Really a nice, easy drinking witbier. Tasted next to Funkwerks White 2012 and Epic Wit and this was the best.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Pours yellow and cloudy with a thin white head garnished with some sort of fruit slice which I removed from the glass and hurled as though it were a boomerang through the bar area. Sadly the slice did not return to me. Lots of orange peel and coriander on the nose which bursts and insists itself on the taste buds. Finishes clean but when I belch I’m reminded of Florida. Nice!

Sampled on 9/29/2012. This witbier pours a very light straw gold color from a 220z bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, yeast, and spices. A light to medium bodied wit. The malts are wheaty and sweet. The hops are herbal and spicy. Touch of lemon and some additional orange citrus. Some coriander and pepper as well. Nice flavors. Nice carbonation. A touch grassy. Very easy drinking wit. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

tap at brewery in Colorado Springs-pours a nice cloudy yellow hue with smooth white head. belgian yeast, banana, orange and a huge amount of clove on the aroma. nice strong and sweet flavors and a good palate give this one an edge against other belgian wits out there.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Thxs Crosling! Much like the IPA I had from this company, this beer is very true to style. Yellow, hazy with almost no head. Aroma of bananas, yeast and bread, pretty much what I would hope to day about any Wit Bier. No faults, but nothing to rave about except that it is well made and true.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Tap at the brewery - I quite liked this one - a nice, crisp tartness - medium dry, with a lemony tang - quite a bit of soft herbal character and some wildflower/lavender notes - suitably light, with a relatively clean finish (just lingering wheat) - refreshing and tasty.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Hazy, insipid yellow appearance. The aroma is somewhat faint, with light hints of wheat and spice. Full, flavourful palate, though, rich with coriander. There are lean, but prominent pale malts backing up the spicecapade, and a hint of acidity in the finish to throw you for a loop and bring everything together at the same time. Cool.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2005
Thin, lasting head. Body is a hazy light orange. Aroma has lots of dry lemon peel and hints of bananna. Taste is slightly acidic, wheaty, with touches of spice. Slight, balanced astringency. Light to medium body, but appropriate. Hearty wheat taste in the finish, slight bitters.

Smells kind of soapy. Bottle. Taste pretty good for a wit. Orange zest and coriander of course, and the girlfriend loves it, of course as well. A good fruity wit beer.
