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.

2 1/2 oz sample at the brewery. Pours hazy yellow with a dissipating white head. The aroma is citrusy, spicy, bready, corinder is strong. I like the lemongrass in it. Creamy mouthfeel. Good.

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.

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.

Tap @ Organic Brewers Fest... Poured hazy, vibrant golden/yellow with a white head. Cracker-like wheat malts. Honey sweetness, herbal and grassy with the lemongrass adding a tanginess that meshed well with the yeast spices and citrus crispness.

16oz can from "Lifesource" Salem ,Oregon. $2.49 Pours a hazy golden in colour with a large thick and bubbly white head. Aroma is strange..cross between Belgian style yeast and typical American Wheat..its OK though Taste is mainly wheat like.., bubble gum, gooseberry, slight coriander,slightly tart,lemon rind..actually growing on me not too bad. Nice palate they kept the carbonation under control, that works for me. I actually started off disliking this..then i changed my mind a very nice summer quencher.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 8, 2012
16 oz can courtesy of bvc. The pour is a very hazy orange yellow with a firm two inch egg white head. Head falls slowly and noisily with nice lace. The aroma is soft smooth wheat grain, along with clove, lemon grass and an herbal lemon-lime. The taste is the lemon up front, the grassiness of the lemon grass, and soft wheat grain and clove in the back. Nice integration of flavors. The palate is light to medium bodied, a touch under carbonated, with a pleasant un-filtered mouth feel and the clove lemon lime finish. Nice Wit, thanks Brandon.

I liked this beer a lot. Had it at the brewery as part of a really nice fight. I’m partial to high wheat beers. I live in Idaho so this might be hard to get buy if I see it I’ll pick it up for sure.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden orange pour with a really nice off-white head. Herbal, floral aroma with lemonzest, spice, and pale malts. Soft wheat flavor, citrus, especially lemon, and lingering herbal and spice. Not bad.
