dalekliz (875) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Sampled at the brewery. Golden yellow color. Light aroma, a little bitter, of citrus. Taste is crisp and dry, with a lot of citrus and bitter hops. The grapefruit comes through nicely. Lingering bitterness. Incredibly refreshing and tasty.

bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 31, 2008
On tap at Backstreet Brewing in Vista. Pours a hazy, yet bright yellow hue with a citrusy nose. Taste was light with the grapefruit balancing nicely with the grains. I got a bit of clove spice in it, very crisp and super easy to drink. This one’s a perfect summer refresher~

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Sample @ Lost Abbey, San Marcos. Pours a cloudy yellow reminiscent of a German hefeweizen with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is grapefruit, bubblegum, yeast, and vanilla notes. Taste is the same, with barely-there hop bitterness to cancel the sweet and tart influences from the rest of the beer. I found it easy drinking and highly enjoyable.

Two samples from tap at Lost Abbey during the release of Witch’s Wit, Ne Goeien Saison, and Sinners ’08 Blend. I don’t think they had bottles for sale today, but then I saw a huge wooden pallet labeled "Wit," so I guess you can get bottles at some point. I entered this beer into the database, so feel free to correct my description. Cloudy yellow color. I really prefer cloudy beers, and somewhat reminds me of a hefeweizen. I wouldn’t doubt a Hefe yeast, but then the aroma reminds me a of a saison. Is it possible they brewed with a hefe yeast at high temperatures. Some bubble gum in the aroma, which is a little different than I expect out of a Hefe yeast. Mild bitterness. Easy to drink.
