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!

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

Hazy pale light yellow pour with a white head. On a warm day in Pasadena, this beer really hit the spot. Fruity, finishing slightly sweet. Really nice citrus and floral character.

May 15th, 2014 - Eagle Rock’s Manifesto Witbier is an affordable, refreshing beer. Like it’s cousin beers, the beer is slightly hazy, and heavily pocked with carbonation, more a geyser than a beer, though the head has made a very quick retreat. The aroma and flavor are mostly in line with the spirit of the wit, slightly sweeter, but checking the boxes for banana and clove.

DSG (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2016
[2/1/16] Draught at Hop Grenade in Concord. Cloudy golden. Aroma of wheat, coriander, a bit of citrus. Sweetish flavor with faint tartness, wheat, graininess, citrus, and bitterish coriander. Light to medium-bodied.

mR_fr0g (8283) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
Draft at social brewery during the eagle rock tap takeover. Clouded yellow coloured pour with a lasting thin white froth. Aroma is doughy wheat, bready, orange, tangy. Flavour is composed of doughy wheat, bready grains, mineral, tangy apple. Orange zest. A little staling. Palate is flabby wheat, moderate carbonation, raw grains. Not much yeast character.

(En fût au Public House): Le poid des céréales est important, très protéiné avec une bonne présence gingembre, à peine banane et assurément chair de citron. Très bon.

944play (397) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Draft at Sprenger’s. Foggy yellow pour with commodious translucent head. Sulfur hits the olfactory apparatus first, but straw and vague green herbs push through eventually. Pancakes with marmalade flavors left me hoping for just a squidge more spice. Any more leavening would make the finish too sizzling.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery, pint. hazy straw. I was surprised by this - a really good, fresh witbier. Well balanced, coriander, yeast and bready malt dominate. great wit.

joeneugs (5450) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 12, 2015
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a hazy pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is bright and lemony with some wheat and light coriander. The flavor has more lemon water, tangerine, strong wheat bread and light spices. It has kind of a watery body with a tangy lemon wheat finish. Tasty.

22oz bottle - I had never heard of Eagle Rock before, but after this bottle I want to dive into this brewer a little more! One of the better American made wits I’ve had in a while. Lemon and orange in the aroma, offset by some sugar cookies, honeydew melon, fresh bread and some coriander. Very lemony on the palate, a good heaping of yeast/bread flavor, light corriander with a hint of tartness. Very nice and easy to enjoy.
