COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Draft at Cap Ale Innsbrook. Very pale yellow, cloudy, nice head. Aroma is grain, slight citrus. Flavor is the same, a bit of a spicy finish. Just a bit on thin bodied side. Refreshing, but wish it had a bit more oomph.

keanex (1477) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Perfect cloudy straw colored body, creamy white head.
Aroma: Orange and coriander, slightly spicy and slightly sweet, good for the style.
Taste: Balanced beautifully with the spice notes and citrus, very enjoyable.
Palate: Creamy medium body.
Overall: I donít know why this is rated so low, this is spot on for the style. Great brew.

On tap at brewery 2/22/13. Minimal aroma, pale clear yellow appearance, minimal head, fizzy mouthfeel, floral and lemon citrus notes. On the slightly bitter side of the style but very drinkable.

Cloudy yellow appearance. Aroma of orange peel and belgian yeast. Flavor includes orange, belgian yeast, and wheat. Itís a very good representation of the style. Nice for the summer.

WVBrU (61) - - APR 14, 2013
Poured light golden or straw color. The head didnít stay around for long. Smells mainly of banana with some citrus. Not bitter at all and a little sweet. Lively carbonation, light body, and sticky texture. Good beer, but it could do more for me.

keepersj12 (2714) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2013
A very nice aroma with a lot of fruit and some spice. Very smooth going down with the fruit and spice leading the way. Nicely balanced. Well done.

jefcon (1400) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2013
Very nice in the glass -- pours exactly like a wit should. Creamy and heavy spice notes balance out. Coriander, pepper, clove. Light and quaffable.

JoeinDahlem (1329) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2013
Moderately bitter for a Wit, dryish, with less sweet and spice, and a whiff of lactic sour mash. Refreshing.

Tasting. Cloudy pale straw with white head. Wheat, coriander , citrus. Crisp. Ok, but underwhelming.
