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.

"Lemongrass and elderflower...you can tel this beer goes beyond the traditional coriander and orange, but never would have guessed the flower. Light and refreshing, yet flavorful, with a very fruity, floral, almost perfumey aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can to glass. Hazy straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is citrus, peppercorn, tangerine, straw, Belgian esters. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a peppercorn spicy following and slight estery finish. Overall this was another good beer from Ft George.

12oz can picked up a little while back at Bier Thirty... Just found it tonight... I have also spotted this one at Brewer’s Haven and a couple other places.
Poured into my FunkFest goblet... surprisingly short lived white head atop a hazed golden brew.. no lacing, no retention.
Nose shows wheat malt that sorta pummels the orange zest, but a resilient coriander keeps Wit character in the game.
Flavor is pretty good... the zest and spice come out okay.. perhaps a bit sweet and malty on the finish... seems a bit muddy and yeasty.
Meh... Nothing wrong.. Could be dialed in a bit more IMO.

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!!!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
