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!

bhensonb (10792) - 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.

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: Manifesto is a hazy, light golden color with a fluffy white head. There are tons of little carbonation bubbles. S: A lot of citrus, particularly lemon and orange, yeast, and a bit of spice. There is also a nice bready quality to the aroma. T: Much the same as the nose. A very refreshing hit of lemon, followed by the more hearty spice, bread, and yeast flavors. There’s also a bit of tartness to this that I wasn’t expecting. M: The beer is very bubbly which gives it a nice light feel on the tongue. Quite enjoyable. D: This is probably the easiest drinking witbier I’ve had. Nice and light but still some strong flavors. The slight tartness was reminiscent of a Berliner Weiss, but not quite to the same degree.
