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.

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

beerandbeyond (625) - 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 (1289) - 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 (2209) - 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 (3912) - Carrboro, 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

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly but left great lacing. The aroma was musty and dusty with moderate notes of citrus, perfume and bubblegum. The flavor was dry, bitter and musty with notes of orange, lemon, bread and Windex. Medium length dry, bitter musty and lemon finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

tastybeer (1607) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Draft. Hazy gold pour, big white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of wheat, citrus, banana, lemon, clove. Taste is sweeter, citrus, fruity esters, banana, creamsicle, light bitterness. Palate is soft, creamy, malty finish. Comes off as a hybrid Hefe/Wit, not too bad.

markwise (4310) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a light yellow with a white head. Nose is big sweet wheat, some light citrus (lemon/ lime), and lots of sweetness. Flavor is big sweetness with some citrus and yeast with mild bitterness. Light in body and a weirdly off-kilter ubersweet wit.

Lubiere (9430) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
A golden ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a nice biscuit malt with spices, incense, cardamom, very nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet lactic malt with light cherry notes, nice and smooth. On tap at Ginger Man NYC, Sept 21, 2012.
