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!

The finish is a mix of wheat, coriander and other spices, lemon zest, and Belgian yeast. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and spicy finish. D - Very drinkable. Good witbier. Nicely balanced and very sessionable.

Sampled on 10/11/2012 at GABF. This witbier pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, fruity and sweet. A medium to light bodied wit. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing. Very easy drinking witbier. Would be a great beer for a warm summer day. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, smooth and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

bhensonb (11364) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours translucent light gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Aroma is primarily mild citrus with some light spice. Near med body. Flavor is very citrus, with light spice, but there’s something sweet/fruit as well. It’s much tastier and much more drinkable than many wits. It goes down like the easiest thing in the world. It tastes good. This is a beer for an afternoon at the lake. Really - I suggest you enjoy this one.
