COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Combining Canadian and American malts with a large proportion of un-malted white winter wheat, Fiat Lux starts with a Belgian witbier inspiration. A blend of Pacific Northwest hops, a little lime peel and a dash of Indian coriander brings a bright blast of citrusy aromatic sunshine, while German Perle hops supply a nice big zap of refreshing bitterness.

Draft at Cincy Beerfest. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is wheat, pale malts, citrus, banana lightly spicy with a hint of bubble gum. The flavor is dry wheat grass, banana, spices, yeast and a hint of citrus.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a clear gold, finger of rather bubbly head. Irons is pretty complex: spicy Belgian yeast, citrus, lime, coriander, a little perfume. Taste is very nice - sweet orange, bread malt and spicy Belgian yeast. Coriander and hoppy bitterness follow, with a pretty dry finish. Medium-full bodied. I’m not the biggest witbier fan in the world, but this is a nice one.

hopscotch (9051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Draft... Clear light-yellow ale with a huge, pillowy white head. Great retention. The nose provides huge coriander and orange peel plus a hint of pepper. Medium-bodied and moderately creamy with tingly carbonation. Sweet, spicy, herbal flavor. Finishes bittersweet and crammed with seemingly every single spice-rack component that rubs me the wrong way. I hate wits and the Boston Red Sox.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Wit with nice tangerine/citrus balance. Some sugar to it as well and bit sweeter than typical wit.

jjuf1853 (1234) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Draft at Tampa Palms WOB. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a foamy white head. Good sudsy lacing along the glass. Aroma has a nice combination of wheat, citrus and hops. Good flavor combination as well. I enjoyed this one. More of a hefty German feel to it than most white wheats, but I liked that about it.

Typical wheat beer taste. Nothing too crazy here. Good for a wheat beer but not special.

beerandbeyond (673) - ISRAEL - NOV 18, 2012
Tap at the brewery, poured into a plastic cup. Hazy deep golden color with a small white head. Citrus nose, some prickly pear and spicy herbal hops, faint pound cake. Fruity flavors, candied orange, rosemary, thyme, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, surprising, interesting twist on the style. Very nice.

keanex (1423) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2012
On-tap at Victory Lane.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden body with a dense white head with great retention.
Aroma: Lots of banana, yeast, grassy hops, and lime.
Taste: Very yeasty with some tart, lemon and orange, floral hops, and strong lime.
Palate: Medium body and carbonation.
Overall: The lime kills this for me, there’s too much going on here. I wouldn’t get this again.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2012
On tap at Croxley’s-Manhattan. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aromas of banana, clove, bread, and light citrus. Flavors of banana, clove, bread, and light hop bitterness. Just as much of a hefe as a wit. Not bad.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Tap at Tyler's Durham. Light hazy golden with thin layer of white lace, some sticking to glass. Nose shows some Belgian yeast, pepper, light cinnamon, ginger, floral and lemon centric hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, moderately sweet with a strong Belgian yeast influence. Bitterness takes over a bit in finish with a peppery yeasty note. A little overly dry and peppery for my tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
