COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian style ale that's pale and cloudy in appearance, that's because it's unfiltered and has a high level of wheat. Wit beer is traditionally brewed with coriander and orange zest. Ours uses organic pale and wheat malts, ground coriander, organic lemongrass (to impart a citrus character) and wild-crafted elderflower.

Kind of flat when it comes to being a Witbier, but still has some flavor. Good, but not the best American Wit I have tried.

Looks like unfiltered apple cider head quickly vanishes. Smells funky oaky vinegary some nutmeg. Tastes spicy strong yeast flavors peppery lemon acidic. Creamy yeast mouthfeel. light carb.

Can. Pours an opaque yellow with thin white head. Aroma of wheat, lemongrass, coriander, and Belgian yeasts. Taste is a overpowered by a sour, lemon flavor. It’s OK, but a bit more sour than I was expecting.

ericdevin (591) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Can from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a cloudy golden orange, very little head. Cloudy, looks to be quite yeasty. Aroma bears that out, very redolent of yeast. Some orange zest and a tart funk as well. Body kind of dull for the style, would’ve liked to pop a little bit more. Finish is very abrupt, beer generally not as good as the aroma would lead one to believe.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Very cloudy lemon yellow with a loght white head. Very light nose of wheat. Creamy palate with wheat, orange and lemon curd flavors. Softer and far less vegetal than a typical beer of this style. Very tasty.

altonbrownd (4615) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2013
Tall can from Belmont Station. Hazy orange body with medium, fast-receding head. Nose is hoppy, floral, fruity. Taste is very nice of malts, honey, fruits, oranges and citrus in the finish. Very smooth and creamy texture. Very impressive coming from a can.

raphael (841) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 2, 2013

Squizzle (134) - Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2012
I liked this beer a lot. Had it at the brewery as part of a really nice fight. I’m partial to high wheat beers. I live in Idaho so this might be hard to get buy if I see it I’ll pick it up for sure.

Pours a slightly hazy orange/yellow. Nice citrus aroma wafts out. Very pleasant taste. Soft and easy to drink. Haven’t had a bad beer from Fort George.
