COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nit Wit is our 2012 GABF Pro-Am beer. We teamed up with Keith Bradley, a homebrewer from Austin, TX to bring you this traditional Belgian-Style Witbier. Made with coriander, chamomile, and fresh zest from oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes, this wit has a complex aroma full of spice and citrus reminiscent of Thai curry. Soft bread malt is forward in the flavor followed by spice, citrus, and a slightly tart character near the finish. Although the flavor and aroma are complex, this beer is well balanced and easy drinking.

Good and unique. Golden yellow color with not much head but it was on tap. The Belgian flavor was present as was the coriander, which I always like. What surprised me was the orange and lemon presence that added a pucker factor to it. It was easy drinking.

GABF week 2012. On tap at the brewery. Pours with a hazed golden hued body and a large and retentive white head. Aromas show lots of citrus, rind and delicate funk. Floral, sage, and medium esters. Flavors are bready, grainy and wheaty, with light tea like notes, some citrus zest, very floral. Soft flavors. Mildly tart, fuller carbonation, lively palate with a dry finish.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. A hazy, golden-orange beer with small, dense, white head. Citrusy nose with coriander, quite a lot of lime. Some lemon grass. The flavor is less lime-ish, still mostly on the citrusy side, leaving little room for the malts. Medium to full body, quite effervescent, and semi-dry. Some bitterness towards the end. Overall, way too lime-ish and citrusy, quite one dimensional. 130216
