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.

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.

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.

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.
