COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grains of wheat and barley + hops + drops of wit + a black pepperish spice…ah, Grains of Paradise + notes of orange and coriander + carbonation to bring out the aromatics; ( - % Belgian yeast culture = slight haze)…Mouthfeel = medium body …Eureka! Witty, a light and refreshing wit beer with engaging complexity.

This is the strangest looking wit I have ever seen. It is a deep amber gold with a bright eggshell white head. This appears more like an APA with barely any haze. The nose has lots of the expected lemon peel and coriander. There is also some banana peel. The taste is really spicy, no balance at all. I can barely detect the light malt behind the tons of banana peels, coriander and green wood. The finish is astringent and harsh. I am not a wit fan, but this is more soapy and tough to drink than most.

Flavor leans toward Fruit Loops in the flavor and relatively sour as well. Not a very good witbier.

Pours a pale, nearly clear (shameful in a wit) gold with a thin white head that has decent retention due to a very high effervescence. Aroma is typical witbier coriander and orange peel, heavy on the coriander, light on the orange, lemon oil and a general grainy note, I want to say wheat, but I can really pin it down to that. Flavor is heavy on the coriander, light orange and lemon peels, old, tired yeast, cardboard, light vegetal notes and some fusel alcohol as it warms. Palate is light bodied, oily throughout and highly carbonated. I did not enjoy this brew. So far Sprecher is 1 for 3 on this Chameleon Brewing thing. This beer not being the 1 of course. The Ryediculous IPA isn’t bad though.

Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy. Served in a Cantillon tulip. Pours yields a clear light gold beer with a very thin white head and no retention. Settles quite quickly into a swirly cap and a really thin collar. No lacing. Nose brings some mild Belgian yeast character with a bit of orange zest and light coriander. Taste has a bit of orange zest but then takes the coriander way too far into the spicy realm. Not subtle at all. The excessive use of coriander really destroys the mouthfeel, which is otherwise light and well-carbonated. Drinkability is pretty low. This is way too much of a spice bomb.

It poured a golden light amber color with a white head. The aroma was orangy, with a touch of grain malt. The taste was orangy, spicey and malty corn. Not a bad witbier.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On tap at sprecher brewery in Lake Geneva, Wi. semi cloudy, lace around edge. Oragne/yellow haze. Strong citrus smell and taste. Very complex, cloves, orange, lemon, line, and ginger detected. Very original and thought outside the box. Served with an orange, light yeast, malt, and hop flavor.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2011
From Matt at 3R6P. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy apricot color with a large creamy white head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was dry coriander and pepper without much in the way of complexity. The flavor was dryish, a touch musty and a bit chalky with moderate notes of coriander and pepper. The finish was long, dry and spicy. Medium body though chewy. Decent.

Witty’s aroma is solely full of aromatic spices. Its hazed golden yellow color reflects the almost sour flavor. This a change from your standard beer and worth trying if you feel adventurous.

Bottled. Poured clear straw golden with a creamy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up lemon zest, white pepper, and earth on a sweet, but surprisingly refreshing nose.. smelled good. The flavor didn’t quite hold serve, but it was serviceable.. tacky pale and honey malts at the core with sweet (and just a little tart) candied lemon, coriander, and white pepper around.. more sour and near refreshing on the finish.. very clean for a wit. Lighter-bodied with a decent feel and flow on the palate.. this was a whole lot better than expected.
