COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wit beer (also called White beer) is a classic old style ale brewed in Belgium for centuries. It has a delicate hop profile which allows the orange, coriander, and spices to lay on top of the taste experience. Unmalted wheat & oats ass a slight richness that is light and refreshing.

Narnad (1463) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Sold as Saskatchewan Wheat Ale. Label says "A Belgian style Witbier, using the best Saskatchewan Wheat, hazy and refreshing. Gently swirl the bottle before pouring.". Pours a very hazy yellow orange color with a modest, creamy white head. Aroma has a strong sour wheat presence, mild orange and lemon notes, low clove presence late and a very light touch of grassy hoppiness at the end. Flavor starts off with a strong clove note with wheat falling in line late. Middle has a very light touch of grassy hops, light orange and a slightly sour note toward the end. Body is slightly watery at the start of the tasting but falls a bit heavier later in the tasting. Carbonation is modest/high creating a slight fizzy feeling. Overall the nose and flavor are decent but the body is just a little too light as it feels watered down which doesn’t compliment the flavors as the clove flavor tends to add to the watered down feeling.

CapFlu (4538) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
(660ml bottle) Purchased at the microbrewery on January 3, 2006 - sampled on January 11, 2006. Pours nearly headless - just a thin, sparse white webbing which disappears to the edges. The body is an IPA orange-amber colour; much darker and more brown orange than any witbier I’ve sampled. The nose is mildly wheaty yet there isn’t the familiar belgian yeaty in the aroma? Mild orange peel and coriander reveal the bottle’s inhabitant yet a tad thinner body with some mis-balanced malt set a new course in style. Very enjoyable yet not the quaffable wit I know... though I’d have another... and perhaps even another...
