COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s hard to improve on something so good,but we give it a shot with this amped up version of our staple Rye Wit. Brewed with pils malt, malted rye and raw wheat this big, Ameri-Belgo-style ale is a far cry from its little brother. Bursting with fruit esters of pear, pineapple and citrus from our favorite yeast strain, Witicus merits comparison with the oft-requested Threetail and hints at the power of Super Saison. Still, it stands alone as a unique beer. A portion of each batch gets diverted to barrels for prolonged aging on wood to eventually become Woodicus – try both side by side. Ingredients: pils malt, malted rye and raw wheat; subtle hops; top-fermenting yeast; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; double dose of funk music.

Nice wit character with a hint of the wine barrel. Nose is a little off, but the flavor is good.

On tap at the brewpub, from backlog. Comes a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and spice. Taste is malt, fruit, grain, and spice. Nice.

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Aroma is a little tart, fruity, wheat, and funk. Taste is almost woody, floral, tart fruit, and a big yeasty finish.

BelgianBeerGal (3322) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Gift from Zac. Site says retired but the bottle says bottled on 10.20.2014. Pours a murky gold color with a foamy white head. Aroma reminds me of yeasty Belgian wit. Bold flavor with some rye spice, fruity esters and clove. Nice

ZacM612 (279) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Very cloudy golden color, white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Banana, citrus, the rye isn’t too strong. Creamy feel. Good one.

TXBadger (1765) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden color with white head. Rye spice, raw wheat, light fruit, and some yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some nice rye spice.

hopscotch (9962) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle... Cloudy golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. The nose provides oaken acidity, apricot and rye - my favorite grain. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and vibrant carbonation. The flavor is lightly sour with honey sweetness and barrel character to balance things out. Finishes fruity and tart. Bottle supplied by 50belair

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Creamed banana golden color with a big, dense, frothy head. Sharp, but weak malt nose. Tons of mushed banana flavor. Heavy white lacing. The rye is a latecomer on the palate. I have a love / hate with this thing. At least it has a creamy body and wears fancy lace. For such a.stro.g beer, its very smooth but finishes heavy.

changeup45 (1719) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 Bottle from Errl. This pours a glowing golden-orange color woth a thin fizzy head. The aroma is peachy, with bubblegum, light herbal notes, and yeast. The flavor has this juicy fruit bubblegum taste with coriander and dusty notes, but not much funky yeast. There’s a lot of wheat throughout; white grapes, and a bit tart overall. The rye is noticeable but I wouldn’t call it spicy. At first I thought this was too sweet and thick in the body, but it’s not really. I can’t say I really enjoyed it though. It definitely grew on me but something just didn’t seem right. It lacks the delicate nature I look for this type of beer.
