COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer style is over 400 years old, and continues to enjoy overwhelming popularity. Offering low hop bitterness, it is easy to enjoy. It pours very hazy, with a light gold color... we say it’s like summertime in a glass. Bitter orange peel and fresh coriander add zest and depth to this light, refreshing beer.

Alisa brought this one back for me from a trip to North Carolina. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was egg white, dust, lemon and cracker. The flavor was musty, pepper, coriander, yeast and sweet honey. Long finish. Medium body. Solid.

Goodgrief (1877) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle at dinner in Nags Head. Hazy orange yellow. Tart orange flavor, fairly sweet. More like an American wheat than a wit, lacking Belgian yeast flavor or any spicy character. Bland and kind of uninteresting.

Draft. Cloudy yellow body, white head. Aroma of coriander, toasted grain, soap, floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly tart. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Gummy in the mouth with a soapy aftertaste. Light coriander taste.

Gold and spicy. A bit too much spice in my opinion and the aftertaste had a bit of funk. Orange zestiness was a plus. Picked up in Asheville in 2015.

DrSilverworm (8548) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2015
12oz bottle, purchased on 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Bottled 10/13/14. Clear golden color. Good thin white head. Decent ridge of lace. Up front, very bready tasting, tastes very much like a very clean lager.. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not what I was expecting for the style. Good coriander and zest comes forward next. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, kind of crisp lighter to moderate carbonation. Light slick texture. Moderate sweet taste, good mild zest. Light spiciness. Pretty tasty, balanced belgian wheat ale. Nice to enjoy with my sandwich.

Very aggressive soda like carbonation on the pour but a disappointing lack of foam. Typical aromas & cloudy pale yellow color for the style. Very very sweet, almost artificially so. A lot of bubblegum, the usual clove & coriander spiciness & maybe some tropical fruit? Overall smooth, fruity & sweet.

Keeping real wit style. Tickers gotta tick tick tick tick tick, tick it off tick it off! Coriander, nanners, nickels, and corn flakes. Killing it.
