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.

Sammy (11170) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle from the brewery (Sprecher). Pours hazy and golden. Pleasant wheat aromas,. Medium mouthfeel, tingling carbonation. some cloves, perhaps some cinammon though the wheat base is so-so. Not super drinkable

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2010
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.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2012
12 oz bottle from Sprecher Brewery (Glendale, WI). Pours a well hazed golden orange hue, deeper hued wihth some mellow carbonation. Frothy whitish head sits atop, dies to a mellow loose film, light lacing. Aromas are a good deep orange peel, fruit, and coriander spice. Flaked wheat, fruity esters offer some sweetness, mellow dryness, cereal grains. More impressive nose than the previous rating. Initial is lighter bodied, getting towards medium though. A firm orange peel front offers inviting citrus, oranges, and touches of mellow spicy coriander. Flaked wheat, dry bread, and touches of citrusy orange, fruity esters. A firm cereal and bready body hits, with some lively oranges that grow, touches of spice. Backend and finish offer dryness, citrus rind, and some mellow sweetness. A pretty good example. Solid offering.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - 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.

wlajwl (5772) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Flavor leans toward Fruit Loops in the flavor and relatively sour as well. Not a very good witbier.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Sampled via 12-oz bottle at the Great Northern Beer Festival in Eagle River, WI. Pours a clear golden light pale amber colored brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is very faint coriander, orange zest, a hint of yeast and golden grain malt, Taste is light bodied, some artificial orange zest, earthy spices and golden grain malt with corn. Finish is slightly peppery, crisp and a short lived bitterness that quickly disappears.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Hazy and a few small particles floating about the straw colored liquid. Small diminishing white head. Light tang and hint of spice in the aromas. Fairly sharp citric zest in the front. Fairly dry throughout. Hint of malt and just a dash of coriander in the finish. A nothing to special American wit. 4/10
