COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style ‘wit-bier’ or white ale has a light wheat base and is typically spiced with coriander and citrus peel. For a unique twist, we add rose petals as well. Manifesto Wit is pale straw-colored and slightly hazy in appearance, with invigorating citrus, floral, and spice aromatics.The light body and subtle sweetness of this beer accentuate the peppery flavor produced by the yeast.These lively flavors, combined with the slight tartness in the finish, create a crisp and refreshing experience. It’s sunshine in a glass!

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, lemon, orange, hints of grain, biscuit notes, some slight spicy pepper, with a hint of honey. Taste was a mix of white fruit, pear, peach, into some vanilla, honey, cracker and biscuit, zesty spice notes come through, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Hazy golden coloured body with a light pale yellow tint and a large, relatively quick dying five centimetre tall white head. Aroma of pale wheat, coriander seed, yeast, bread, nutmeg, anise and a hint of cloves. Medium-bodied; Strong yeastie and wheatie flavours with some moderate sweetness and much more spiciness throughout the flavours with a lot of dry and herbal notes on the back end. Aftertaste shows some good complexity with spice coupled with herbs and yeast - fairly light, but showing some residual alcohol and dry bittering flavours. Overall, a good wit that’s on the stronger side of things, but in a good way. Still, great to drink on a warm day or pretty much any day in Los Angeles, given that it’s always hot and sunny there. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from BevMo in San Diego (Mission Valley), California on 08-June-2013 for US$5.49 sampled at home in Washington on a relatively hot day on 03-October-2013 a few hours before heading west to Alaska!

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 19, 2013
On tap @ Pizza Port Ocean Beach: Poured a glowing yellow liquid with a tint of white. The aroma is hard to smell but there is a pinch of coriander and orange peel that stays true to Belgian witbier. The flavor is nice and spicy with a taste of coriander, clove, banana, and orange peel, Has a pleasant palate making this the first beer I have yet to taste from Eagle Rock.

alexanderj (3267) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle; poured a dull gold, almost an amber color. Aroma of wheat and citrus/orange, maybe a bit more on the wheat side. Flavor was fairly mild, with some vanilla and wheat with some citrusy zest in the finish. Just ok.
