This beer is dedicated to our brewery on School St. and Bob's former teachers. Belgium wheat style made with one third unmalted red wheat. This ale has a mild malty biscuit like flavor - fermented lower to finish dry.

On tap at Cheers Bar down the street from the brewery in Chilton. Light golden amber color with a fast-dissolving head. Taste is medium in body and well balanced between citrusy zest and hops and the malt. Didn’t know this was a wheat until I came on here to rate it. No coriander or spice that I could detect, which tempts me to rate it down. But as a regular Ale it’s not bad. I honestly thought it was a Blonde or similar light ale.

On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. One of the better beers I had on my visit and was without the trademarked diacetyl. Clear light amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of rye (wheat), grains and bready malt, certainly not a witbier. Taste of multi-grains with wheat and biscuits and some light yeast. More of a wheat ale than a witbier.

Nice to see the brewmaster revived this historical beer after six years. On draught at the brewpub in downtown Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a thick off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of light bready biscuit malt, a touch of citrus hops and dry yeast character. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of light bread and biscuit malt, some citrus zest. Finish is semi-dry with a good balance of biscuit malt and citrus zest. For a Witbier, it could use a little spice and even a touch of coriander. None detected in this detention ale.

The brewery considers it a Belgain White, but it didn’t have the same spice. It was very smooth though, and tasted a lot like a warm loaf of bread. It has a great pale and wheat malt backbone and a light hoppiness. The finish is very crisp and tasty.

Not a bad beer. I prefer this one to many others but, it is not as good as the rest of the beer Rolands has to offer.

Significantly lacking. The first Rowland’s brew that I thought that of.
