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.

weihenweizen (3032) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small white head. Orange/Coriander aroma, medium body, medium carbonation, and pretty good small bubble lacing. Taste is coriander, orange, spice (mostly grains of paradise), some floral, some grassy, some bubble gum, with crisp finish. Soft beer with a fair amount of complexity (especially for the style) and flavor, pretty enjoyable really.

12oz bottle. Looks light. Aroma of light wheat, light spices, pale malts, and hints of bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best for its style.

jake65 (3354) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle, from nimbleprop – thanks! Pours a cloudy pale yellow (very pale) with two fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma of grains and light citrus, just a touch of florals. Same in the taste, but a little spicier with coriander. Finishes crisp.

Tom opened a bottle and forced me to drink some with him and Shin Tommy. Pours hazy canary yellow with a white head which recedes to leave a flat surface. Aroma of wet oats, lemongrass, clove, and maybe chalk? It's gross. Taste is lemon and some honey, with a smooth, oatmeal finish. Not bad, but still gross to my palate. Thin and forgettable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
