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.

For a Belgium White I definitely favour the original Belgiums but that being said I did enjoy the twist on flavour of this one. It was an interesting twist on citrus as if it had a grapefruit taste to it. Overall I thought it was pretty good for a twist on a Belgium Beer.

Has an opaque yellow, light spice. Similar on the palate, ok dryish malts. Basic wit, but well made.

bottled - a bit underwhelming. Pale and cloudy in color. Typical wheat beer flavor with a bit of spice.

Pours cloudy light orange with a thin white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, wheat, cloves, orange peel, and some corriander. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi creamy, medium finish. Overall, a decent witbier that is very refreshing on a hot summer day.

Thanks to Strykezone for sharing this one - pours hazy light yellow with a white head. The aroma has powder, wheat, mush and a bit of orange. It has a medium / light body that’s pretty thin and has mild carbonation. The flavor starts off with orange, astringency, metallic notes, salt and mild wheat. The finish is medicinal and has some peppery spice. Fair wit.

Strykzone (6256) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Sampled at Greg’s tasting. Hazed white gold with just a little foam. A little orange zest here and it brngs bitterness. That leads almost everything. Wheat notes are really kind of muddled. That speaks for most of this one. Maybe this is old taste.

eaglefan538 (3016) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 6, 2015
On draft at the TLA at a rip off price, but that is irrelevant. The pour was hazy straw yellow, nice head that laced weakly and disappeared quickliy. The body was thin and carbonation average. Aroma of faint spices, grains, some citrus. Flavor followed, up front bready notes, not enough depth in the orangey and coriander spicing. Pretty darned drinkable and decent but not excellent by any stretch, also not a great example of the style.

callmemickey (4191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2013
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.

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.

I was surprised by some of the ratings. !2oz bottle, good, clean crisp wit brew. Good session brew.
