Pours orange and unfiltered, with significant amount of chunky floaties. Slight citrus aroma and huge orange lemon initial taste. Quick hop bite on the finish. Sweet aftertaste. Very refreshing! I think this is a new style for Redhook, sorta surprised to see them not botch a style like this.

Twelve ounce bottle from Widmer/Red Hook/Kona summer variety 12 pack purchased at Western Hills Kroger, tasted on September 21, 2013. Cloudy orange/yellow hue, sweet/spicy aroma with clove dominating, flavor mostly sweet and spicy with a fair amount of ginger. Can’t say this is much of a Belgian wit but it’s all right.

12 oz bottle from Conifer Village Liquor. Orange and pretty clear with a completely dissipating head, no lacing. Aroma of bread, spices, sweet malts, herbs, coriander, lemons and orange peel. Similar flavor, sugary and sweet with light bitterness. Oh, and a fuck ton of ginger. Pretty light body with average carbonation and a long finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours relatively clear for a wheat beer while a fizzy seltzer-esque head quickly fades into nothing. Swirls with nothing, too. After the pour settles there are a few scattered wheaty bits hovering suspended in the golden brew.
Mild all around. Candied ginger with sour granny smith apples along the edges. Sourdough.
Much like the nose, mild and unassuming. Candied ginger up front with some ginger heat in the back. Chewy whole wheat breads along the edges. Sourdough breads and apples on top.
A rather forgettable wheat ale from a once great craft beer brewery. The flavors were mild and never seemed to truly mesh, working more against each other than with each other. Moving on…

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cool looking 12oz bottle pours with a deep slightly hazy pale gold body that supports a tiny off white head. The aroma has pretty big banana notes, a bit of faint cloves and some mild grainy malts. The taste is similar with banana, some wheat to malt notes and sweet malt sweetness. Overall a bit too sweet to really enjoy.

Looks and smells like a wit, cloudy pale golden with paper thin head. Hints of citrus and spice, smooth and light mouthfeel. Good example of the style.

Deep Hazy Yellow / Light Orange Color, Medium lively head that disappears in 30 seconds, no lacing. Funky Ginger Aroma. Wheat, orange, Ginger. Easily drinkable, refreshing, although I’m no fan of ginger. Seems OK blend of wheat and spices. Just OK for me....
