Flat12 American Wit is quintessentially an American version of a traditional Belgian-style Wit beer. Itís a summer wheat beer thatís light and tart with the spice and zest of coriander and orange peel. Flat12 chose to forego the cloudiness of a traditional Wit beer because this style is a great warm weather thirst quencher. We figured it would be good to brighten ours up, after all, who wants summer to be cloudy. ABV: 5.4% IBU: 23.1

Pint on tap. Mostly clear with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma is orange, honey and a bit of evergreen. Tastes of orange, toast with some earthy honey and a touch of resin. Nice job of not overdoing the additives. Light body has a good balance and a medium carbonation. Could definitely drink more than one of these; normally canít do more than 8 ounces of an American style wheat.

hotstuff (4839) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2014
Rated on 4-09-2011 at Flat 12. This draft beer pours a small white head with a long retention, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is wheat, citrus, spicy, orange peel, and some coriander. The taste is sweet, crisp, coriander, wheat, spicy, and citrus. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this is a medium bodied beer. This beer is easy to drink but could use a bit more flavor.

Nice summer beer. Spice is there but with a soft hand. Itís got plenty of citrus zest. Light body. Decent brew. I like most their other offerings at Flat 12 better though.

Draft at KFOA. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate wheat citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

tap at the brewery (5.0% abv in my notes) - This lightly hazy brew has an aroma of wheat and citrus with mild hops. The flavor is light with mild hops bitterness that balances the sweetness well and some spice. Itís somewhat more bitter than most wheat ales and is light bodied and refreshing.

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a pale yellow pour, light haziness, a bright white frothy head dies to a film, laces a touch. Aromas are sweet estery fruits, bananas and oranges, with flaked wheat, touches of vanilla, doughy bread, and some stinky pilsner malts. Touches of mellow coriander. Initial is ligt bodied, a big blast of coriander up front, some vanilla, light orange rind, flaked wheat and bread dough with coriander kinda take up the task. Touches of mellow fruity esters. Finish is fairly clean, lingering coriander. Not bad, a bit interesting if not an uninspiring style. A little bit of a "one trick pony" with a dominant coriander presence.
