COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slightly higher in alcohol content than traditional Wits, ours is brewed using wheat, oats, authentic Belgian yeast, malts and just a sprinkle of hops. Spices include coriander, sweet and bitter orange peel and grains of paradise.

Deep hazy golden coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall microfoam whtie head - this IS exactly what a belgie white should look like, complete with a zillion small bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, coriander seed, curacao and a ton of yeast - this is a great smelling beer as well. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a ton of spice flavours at first, fading almost immediately to a yeast and wheat kick, then showing some alcohol, a hint of caster sugar sweetness and a nice complex, dry hay flavour. Overall, a very nice Wit, probably one of the best Ive had in the style for some time, not sure how they could improve this one. I sampled this 65 cL bottle (batch #11, 5.4% abv) purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-November-2012.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy straw yellow with a bone white head. Nose is lemon, citrus, floral notes, lemon peel, pepper, and sugar. Flavor is nice blend of spice, pepper, lemon, lemon rind, and slight hops. Medium-bodied and memorable.

Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is floral, lemony. Taste is wheat, spice, lemon, coriander. Ok....just a little less than smooth.

obguthr (4284) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Surprisingly floral bouquet of lillies, rosehips, clover honey, and the obligatory coriander. Clear yellow, headless. Drinks like it smells, somewhat perfumey but the hops and spices compliment each other quite well. Im told that "white IPAs" may be the new trend as several high profile breweries have one under development. This beer certainly be considered one. Avant garde.

Aroma is complex spices and an undercurrent of citrus. The flavor is spices/mild heat, wheat, citrus and a mildly sour finish.

boFNjackson (4185) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle... Poured somewhat orange with an easy forming eggy, off-white head. Loads of yeast spices and coriander in the both aroma and flavor. Wheated malt sweetness and vanilla along with bitter orange rind peels, citrus, grassy hops, and yeast spices as it dried out towards the finish. This was well done but if I were to nitpick Id say a little too much on the spicing here.

Pours light gold with a slight head. Not a lot of smell to this one, but has a nice slight citrusy taste to it.

TURDFERGUSON (4004) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle at Carrboro Beverage, Thanks Israel. Hazy straw yellow with small white head. Nose is heavy coriander, oregano, light orange peel. Similar, flavor dominated by the coriander and oregano.

AirForceHops (3943) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Very nice color of a hazy Pineapple juice. white head with good retention and lace. Aromas of coriander, hint of apple and wheat. Taste is simple and easy carbonation makes it easy to chug. Coriander and spice upfront, a hint of apple and a twinge of citrus in the finish. Its a nice brew. Is very easy to drink. Looks good, smells good, tastes good. A nice Wit.

Butters (3915) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Hazy yellow with small amount of whitish head. Very floral aroma and coriander. Flavor is very heavy on the spiciness which I think comes from the grains of paradise. Somewhat bitter orange pith twinge on the finish. Very effervescent. Reminds me of a a bier de garde more than a traditional wit. Pretty good and refreshing, but not exactly what I want when Im having a wit.
