Chrisco88 (9) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Appearance: Very pale gold color, almost yellow. A bit of yeast cloudiness which fits the style. Large creamy head that lasts a while. Aroma: Very light and citrus-y, a bit of a sour twang that I really enjoy but seems to dominate the senses. Taste: A little sour but perfectly balanced with a clean, tart aftertaste. Tastes a bit like cider but has a great brett taste that I loved. No hop character at all. Palate: Pretty thin but very intensely carbonated, finishes clean with a nice tart pucker. Overall: Hands down my favorite wit (my favorite style mind you!) and definitely in my top 5. It’s a fantastic tasting beer and stands out among every other wit I’ve tried, but like most wits it doesn’t hold your interest for more than a glass or so.

NikkTwist (2399) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2016
Draft at Bru Craft. Hazy pale yellow pout with fizzy soft white foam that left a lasting ring but no lace. Bright citrus florals with just a hint of straw. Modestly tart. Lemon shortbread. Clementine marmalade. Grape leaves. Loquats. Oyster crackers. Thirst quenching.

McNeillR (2117) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Very murky bright sandy yellow, very thin bubbly head. Nose is a rich sweaty zest, a bit burnt plastic and soft earthiness. Initial taste is a rich vibrant tartness, stoney fruit and veg. Carbonation is sleek and mouthfeel is gritty. Finishes a fair power of grapefruit and pineapplely with lingers of more rich tartness. What is Wit. Bottle, Beermoth.

Clear pale golden. Nose is spices, lemon, funky, tart apples. Taste is tart and bitter, lemon, herbs, cloves, spices. I liked the nose more than the taste and palate.

Bottle thanks to McNeillR. Appearance - looks like a wit. Pale yellow, thin head. Nose - definitely sour. Wood and sour apples. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - not a wit more of a sour. Good beer.

The witbier’s orange-citrus character and lemony tart, sour character really works well together. Nice.

Bottle into a glass. Super hazy hay pour. Aroma of spice, funk, horse blanket, earth, pepper, apples. Taste is tart apples, spice, funk, fruity esters, white bread. Slight tartness. Crisp and refreshing, easy drinking but complex.
