COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian-style Wit, or white ale, is an unfiltered wheat beer brewed with traditional ingredients and a Highland twist. Wits are conventionally brewed with noble hops, pale malt, unmalted wheat, orange peel, and coriander. We have made this beer our own by adding other unique spices to create complex aromatics, a refreshing taste, and a crisp finish. Light in color with a smooth body, Razor Wit is perfect for hot summer days and sultry summer nights.

Luvystypotables (532) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Aroma of ginger beer, golden colour, almost no head. Taste of ginger beer and cloves. Creamy feel, with an astringent ginger taste.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2014
12oz bottle served in a snifter. A: Hazy orange-gold with about a finger of white head. The head is mostly short-lived, but leaves a ring as well as some spotty lacing. Some sediment remained on the bottom of the bottle despite more-or-less emptying the bottle. Give it a swirl before pouring if you want more spices and yeast. S: Sweet and fruity, this smells like a spicy witbier with notes of lemon-orange and coriander. T: A rather spicy witbier, but not over done, and with an excellent mix of spices. Orange peel and coriander are most obvious, along with the banana/yeast flavor. Also obvious, a generous and well-proportioned load of noble hops and wheat. All too brief aftertaste. M - Excellent medium+ carbonation level; near medium body; smooth yet crisp; slightly dry finish. O: not a favorite style of mine, but with the well chosen spices and generous (for style) use of noble hops, this well-crafted witbier is one of the best Ive ever had. {from 2012 notes)

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - NOV 20, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Faint coriander, yeast, musty notes. A: Pours a hazy copper yellow with a soft, white head and good retention. T: Lemon notes, coriander, yeast, a bit spicy on the finish. P: Light bodied, smooth, well carbonated. O: This beer lacks complexity. The flavor is there but its very subdued. Refreshing, but forgettable.

HighlanderOne (985) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Poured from bottle. Spicy aroma. Semi cloudy white gold with lacing head. Im tasting spice, vanilla, hay, coriander, citrus, yeast. Nice flavors but could use more. Tons of carbonation. Good but could be better.

r464 (1883) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Tart, yeasty, with citrus and spice. A bit thin in the finish, but just enough wheat flavor. Not too bad.

kidobutai (290) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Very refreshing, slight but noticeable citrus taste and aroma, not as bitter as previous belgians Ive tried, which spells success to me

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Golden color with white head. Aroma is lemon, banana, coriander. The flavor is rather mute with hints of citrus and spice. Overall good session beer not much else. Dont think drank kind of beer.
