COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The famous American poet Walt Whitman once described a particular Philadelphia sunset as consisting of, "...a broad tumble of clouds, with much golden haze and profusion of beaming shaft and dazzle." Sounds remarkably similar to our fragrant, satisfying take on the traditional Belgian white ale. Walt Wit's citrus and spice flavors deliver a transcendental drinking experience. Walt Wit is brewed with only a whisper of hops and a hint of herbs to set off the flavor of white wheat and oats.

Hazy golden yellow body, thin white head, sparse lacing. Wheat, lemon zest, light spice. Medium to light bodied, overcarbonated, a bit thin, a little sweet.

DiarmaidBHK (3583) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle from House of a Thousand Beers. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Has a slight orange note on the nose. Has a slight grains of paradise thing on the tongue. finishes clean. A bit boring for style.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not much to say about this beer in the positive. So glad I at least got a free glass for buying the case.

EithCubes (5091) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Bottle freshest by 12/10/12, mine 4.2%. Big lemon cleanser in the nose, heavy wheat and coriander, pours hazy yellow-golden with a creamy beige head. Taste is very dry and scratchy, yeast overpowers the wheat. Medium body, feel like I’m straining. Coriander is overpowering, there’s rough graininess, and nothing on the redemptive side -- sort of awful. [10/20/2012: 2.1]

Second bottle is more of the same - the mix is way, way off. [07/30/2012: 1.9]
