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.

Pours a nice hazy golden color with white head. Fizzy, citrus, coriander, and raw wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a slightly sweet note.

12/05/2013: Brooklyn Fiat Lux... Yet another Belgian Wit and there’s nothing special about this particular one... Meh! Draught (sample) at Party Town in Bellevue, KY. Rating #74 for this beer.

nearbeer (3584) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2013
On tap. Light haze on a golden pear body with a lasting disc of cream. Aroma is resin, and spicy citrus. Taste is upfront with spicy citrus and resin. Followed by spicy caramel, earthy vanilla and tropical bubblegum. Big resin and pith finish dries everything nicely. Light-medium body is smooth with average carbonation and finishes well to the dry side. Definitely too over-hopped to fit into the "classic" Wit mold, but another very tasty American-Belgian stylistic fusion nonetheless.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Happy Gnome. Clear yellow pour with a frothy white head. Clove, coriander, citrus, and bready malts. Fairly full palate. This is really nice.

shrubber85 (7288) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft. Strong banana, orange, clove, coriander, and wheat malt flavor. Murky yellow with small head. Sweet banana, lemon, clove, wheat malt and lightly bitter grass flavor. Very nice beer - a witbier/Hefeweizen hybrid.
