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.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. 5.5% ABV. A hazy yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of citrus, coriander, and lemon grass. The Flavor is primarily of citrus, but also with a light touch of wheat, leading to a dry wheaty finish. Nothing wrong, just unexciting.

Hazy, yellow. Light malt accent with shades of spice. Quick is right...not much to talk about nor think about and it’s gone just like that.

Can in the Room 316 Tulip tasting, Bodegraven, 27/09/13 bath tub chilled. Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Tarteish fruit on the nose, peaches, orange, grain. Taste comprises orange pith, grass, light apricot, more peachyness. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, doesn’t offer the refreshment I’d expect for the style in the finish. Average at best.
