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.

ericdevin (988) - 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, wouldíve 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 (1069) - 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 (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - 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.

Squizzle (173) - Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2012
I liked this beer a lot. Had it at the brewery as part of a really nice fight. Iím partial to high wheat beers. I live in Idaho so this might be hard to get buy if I see it Iíll pick it up for sure.

Pours a slightly hazy orange/yellow. Nice citrus aroma wafts out. Very pleasant taste. Soft and easy to drink. Havenít had a bad beer from Fort George.

AirForceHops (4400) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 18, 2012
16 oz. can courtesy of Sean and Amber. Perfect eye appeal. Hazy gold with a thin layer layer of head. Flavor is mild, light coriander with solid wheat character. Lots of sugar, I guess the candi sugar is the Belgian character. When it gets warm, it kind of smells like perfume. The lemongrass makes it a bit different as well. Itís ok.

reebtogi (4746) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
473ml can pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head which leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus and spices. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with a mild citrusy bitterness. Light to medium body with light carbonation. A typical witbier with nothing special going on. Ok to drink around a campfire as it goes down pretty easy.

16 ounce can
Thanks to 5000 for sending this in a recent trade. Light, refreshing, and simple, it was a good beer for a cool autumnal evening. While I wonít go out of my way to get more beers from Fort George this isnít a bad introduction.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy base is like pouring pureed orange pulp into a pint glass. The thin white head and spindly legs provide good visual balance. The nose smells like the inside of an orange creme filled Easter egg treat or orange marmalade. For the ABV it is surprisingly dense.

Flavor / Palate - The chewy mouthfeel starts from the first sip and doesnít relent. Orange marmalade washes across the palate along with white toast. The sugary feel hangs in the back of the throat for a while before beginning to fade. This is a fine introduction to a new brewery.
