Our Optimal Wit is brewed in the Belgian Wit Bier tradition. It is brewed with raw wheat and oats, and steeped with coriander, orange peel and grains of paradise. This ale is a pale golden color with a bit of cloudy haze from bottle conditioning. This unfiltered ale offers layers of complex, nuanced flavors that evolve in the glass. It finishes crisp and refreshes the palate.

Cybercat (5170) - Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Pours slightly hazy golden with a thick but effervescent head. Aroma delivers yeasty, wheat, citrus and coriander notes, calling for a taste. Flavor ramps these all up a notch, especially the coriander, and adds a hint of pear. Fizz is lacking, but body is firm and smooth. Sharpen your wits to the optimal point and enjoy.

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Cloudy, yellow appearance with an average size white head and little lacing. Grassy, grainy, spicy aroma. Flavor tracks more toward the traditional wit style as the yeasty esters pair with wheat and spices. Slight vegetal aftertaste., Light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Une blanche classique avec une belle robe trouble, une mousse peu abondante, un nez à la fois fruité et épicé et une bouche digeste et équilibrée. Bière de soif pour bien commencer la soirée.

5 oz pour on draft at Barrel & Bushel, Tysons Corner Center. Hazy pale yellow with off-white head. Aromas of herbs, citrus, coriander. Tastes of light banana, herbs, citrus. Light body with a dry finish. Very solid wit, would definitely recommend this to someone as an alternative to the macro witbiers like Blue Moon.
