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

teamsale (174) - Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Can pours a very cloudy golden with a one finger white head and good lacing. Unpleasant aroma of heavy aspirin yeast, dish soap, and some mostly orange citrus. Tastes much better than it smells though with some real complex flavors hitting all over. Rather sweet and light but with a sharp twang. Minimal bitterness. Lightly carbonated. Good sweet citrus fruity aftertaste that turns into a dominant floral aftertaste.

12 oz can. Canned on 8/27/15. (Beermongers) Portland, OR. Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Spices, malt, wheat and yeast in the aroma. The flavor is really much spices and yeast... dry malt and wheat there too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Colour...hazy golden straw with a thin white head. Nose...faint hints of butyl esters and sweet spices. Palate...frothy and fairly zesty, with notes of coriander and sweet spice, muddled with some citrus. The finish is short and somewhat spicy.

andrewje41 (2860) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Draft pour pint at Frankies pizza. Pours a light golden color with a fizzy head. A lot of refreshing lemon flavor with a light floral finish. Mild orange spice. Very nice wit.

Lemongrass notes with faint hints of coriander. The nose is slightly floral and the elderberry comes through on the finish. Refreshing on a hot summer day

Canned on 12.05.14. Poured from a 12 oz can into a pub glass on 02.04.15. A: Banana, orange, spices, wheat, and lemon. A: 1/2 finger head that fades to a ring with spots of foam. Hazy straw yellow body with floating bits. T: Lemon and wheat dominate. Banana, spices, and orange are subtle. P: Smooth and bubbly. Medium mouthfeel. Refreshing. O: This is a solid wit. There’s not a lot of flavor, though.

mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Fort George, pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of elderflower, as well as coriander and floral notes. Flavour is soft on the palate, again with notes of elderflowers and coriander, very floral as well. Very solid Belgian wit that drinks easily.

slowrunner77 (10078) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"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.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2014
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.
