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 generates little to no head and no lacing. Floral and orange aromas with a hint of banana in the taste. Overall very restrained in all categories.

mansquito (3361) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Somewhere: pours a pale gold with a white head. Aroma is spice, yeast, citrus, and wheat. Taste is hoppy and dry for a Belgian wheat. It is not too sweet, which is big plus. Light bodied. Refreshing, but still flavorful. ,lid aftertaste.

Hazy yellow gold with a one-finger frothy white head and nice lace. Aromas of wheat, grains, lemon, Belgian yeast and spice. Flavor profile includes wheat, bubble gum, lemon zest, coriander, and some grains. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a sweet and spicy finish.

arminjewell (6159) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
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 (4718) - 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!
