Tap at Lake Geneva brewpub. Light golden pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is caramel chew with coriander and orange essence. Taste is fruity and yeasty. I like the bubblegum flavor over the coriander. Nice and full in the mouth. A good wit.

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.

Picked up during a brewery tour of Sprecher. Nice orange flavor that is very similar to a Blue Moon. Very enjoyable.

As a lover of spiced and unfiltered beer, I must say that Witty is particularly good. If you like Blue Moon or even 312, you’ll love this.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow gold with a small white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is citrus and spices. Nice and creamy on the palate, that taste is very pleasant- of wheat, citrus, spices and coriander. Not bitter- very well balanced. Pairs well with tacos.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Pours a fizzy, clean golden color with a quick fading white head that leave no lacing. Aroma has a strong grains of paradise nose, modest amount of coriander and some light orange and wheat creep in at the very end. Flavor is reminiscent of the old Sam Adams spring ale but with a huge punch of spice. Grains of paradise really hit first with the coriander quickly picking up the slack as it fades. A very smooth orange sweetness kicks in late and really rounds out the overall early spiciness of the brew. Wheat malt is present but isn’t the dominant flavor by any means. Body is light/modest with a fizzy feel to it. Overall the strong spiciness was really balanced out by the orange flavors at the end. Good brew.

madvike (2843) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2012
On tap at Sprecher - Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Nose is orange and coriander with a light yeasty malt base. Taste is the same with a bit of soapiness. Nice and slick with a full body.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5078) - 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.
