COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redhook’s twist on the Belgian style is the addition of fresh ginger, which adds a refreshing snappiness to this lighter-bodied wheat beer. Redhook Wit is perfect for warm summer months of outdoor BBQ-ing, sitting by the pool, or just taking a break by hanging inside enjoying the AC and watching old re-runs of Gilligan’s Island.

"Made with ginger but still digs Mary Ann."

Formerly ’Redhook Wit’

Slightly cloudy light orange with high carbonation. Wheat, almost soapy ginger aroma. Tastes of citrus, wheat with strong ginger-beer ending and finish. Good, but interesting. Like champagne, ginger beer, wheat.

Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks John. It poured a slightly hazy straw colour with thin white foam, short-lived with no lace. Strong ginger aromas and flavors, hot and harsh, fairly dusty and dirty seeming. Too acidic, too much residual sweetness, too heavy body. Lacked the nice, crisp, grainy aspects of a true Witbier, none of the classic black pepper and clove traits either. A cool idea, which is why I was excited to try it, but a kinda crappy beer unfortunately.

jbruner (2161) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of wheat up front, slight yeast, but mostly wheat. Taste is slightly more Belgian yeast, but mostly wheat still, no real ginger bite. Meh, nothing crazy, but easy to drink.

Wise Cracker brings some very nice Wit characteristics. It is very easy to drink, no aftertaste, and a very nice palate for a very easy summer style beer. The beer does not have a very pillowy head or significant body, but the cloudy white beer does sustain the principles of a nice wheat brew that satisfies the thirst.

leoncallan (2) - IRELAND - JUN 5, 2013 does not count
Very close to the intended Belgian wit beer, the extra flavour coming laterin taste with ginger. Really requires a fluted glass to release the gas as the first taste can hit you.

Sammer (1026) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Taste is ginger, lemon peel and citrus. Malty finish. Decent, but not great summer beer.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Hazy light orange with a quickly fading head. Effervescent up front; a bit cloying in the finish. Chewy, heavy-handed malt flavors of wheatgerm, plain crackers, and hay. Mild hop bitterness with meadowy, herbal, and earthy elements. Ginger is pleasantly in the background; provides a bit of spice and curious heat. Overall, it’s kind of underwhelming with restrained aromas and muted flavors.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-peach color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish and a bit must and dusty with a bit of black pepper. The flavor was dryish, musty and yeasty with notes of black pepper, citrus and a bit of sulfur. Medium length finish of must, pepper and citrus. Medium body. Eh.
