COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style Ďwit-bierí 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. Itís sunshine in a glass!

Tap at Verdugo. This was good. Nose of tart yeast, maybe a little bacteria, clean wheat. Color is a hazy yellow. Flavor is tart like a Wit or a Weiss, but with a nice light fruit tinge at the end - peach is what I thought at the time. Has enough character to be taken seriously.

A - Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of wheat, grains, lemon zest, Belgian yeast, coriander, and some other spices. T - Starts off with a mix of wheat, lemon zest, coriander, and some grains. Through the middle, some more Belgian yeast flavors come through with some other spices and some more citrus flavors. 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.

jgb9348 (4860) - 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 thatís 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 itís 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!

Pours hazy medium yellow. Large frothy creamy white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, lemon/light orange, touch of spice. Flavor follows. Light body, very soft and very very creamy. Light spice. Moderate dryness. Really comes together. Tasty, smooth, and super drinkable.

Pours a really nice hazy light yellow. Quite the unique color. This is made with rose petals instead of orange peel and with less spices than usual to showcase the spice making qualities of the yeast. I get some clove taste and some floral notes.

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.

SDalkoholic (2179) - 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.

Aroma of banana and lemon with just a hint of floral petals (apparently rose petals are added to the spice mix). Hazy yellow color with a frothy white head. Tastes like sunshine! While it was served a touch too cold, as it warmed the spice notes came out - cloves, peel, etc. Tight carbonation and a nice sweet finish. The brewery claimed this beer is on tap to showcase the way yeast works in a beer. Iím excited to see what else comes from this new brewery!

brokensail (11613) - 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. Thereís also a bit of tartness to this that I wasnít 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 Iíve 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.

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Pretty mellow overall, but classic in its approach to the style. Easy drinker.
