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.

Fort George makes some great beer and this is a noble experiment. But the flowery, soapy notes make this a tough one to go down. Belgian yeast could have been replaced with a hef strain for less floral assault. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden pour with a quickly fading white head. A bit spicy with an unusual flavor(elderberry?) Not my favorite.

Can. Light yeasty nose, with some floral notes, citrus zest, and yeast. Bright neon light yellow color, bountiful carbonation. Gentle wheat, light citrus, and the spice floats up on the carbonation. Thin-medium body, some carb tingle. Nice enough, but not a great wit.

I like this one. Very hefe-like (which makes sense). Strong banana flavor notes, with the expected Belgian yeast. Totally works, and recommended!!!

Can. Pours a hazy tannish-golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. The coriander on this one will smack you in the face before you even get a sip in, with the orange coming through subtly underneath, and very little wheat. Taste is slightly sweet with a lot of wheat character to it, and seems just super refreshing. Nice brew.

Cloudy golden color. Farmhouse funk and spice aroma. Taste immediately hits you with the belgians yeast funk and finishes with spice and citrus. Was pretty decent.

IndianaRed (2384) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 5, 2014
12 oz can cloudy light beige yellow. Big fluffy white head that then receded to just line of bubbles around he edge. Definitely some lemongrass and coriander spice. Nice fairly spicy flavors. Smooth bodied.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a bright yellow color with a large white head. A big fresh fruit nose with bananas. The flavor is spicy, some earthy malts, but dominated by a robust fruity hop, clear wit base. Floral. The lemongrass is a really nice addition. One awesome Wit.

On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a fluffy white head. Nose is citrus lemon grass orange spice and some sweetness. Taste is holy lemon grass orange spice maybe even some basil. I maybe getting the lemon grass and basil because I had Thai food for lunch. Pretty tasty.

Ratman197 (9710) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2014
16 oz can poured a cloudy golden amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, floral notes and light lemongrass. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast, floral notes and light citrus with a smooth dry lingering floral finish.

Lovely nose full of wheat and coriander and just a kiss of citrus. Smooth flavor with dry wheat, cracker, some dry coriander and a nice belgianish herbal finish. A lovely touch of Lemongrass throughout.
