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’

bhensonb (11045) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours hazy gold with a big creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma seems citrus with a little clove. With a touch of Belgian yeast. Near medium body. It comes on confused, then settles into ginger, then wears out into a little light malt. Not the best wit ever, but clearly drinkable.

brokensail (10914) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pours a rather clear golden yellow color with a finger of white head. Kind of a weak nose. Some cereal and grain sweetness, a bit of bread, a light orange peel aroma, and minimal spice or yeast. The flavor is a bit more spicy. Ginger, coriander, and orange peel dominate. Some sweet bread, a cereal/grain flavor, and a hint of yeast. Just a faint touch of banana on the finish. Very light bodied with medium carbonation.

daknole (9097) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pale and cloudy yellow pour. Soapy, white head. Aroma hits with tons of ginger, ivory soap, and light caramel. Flavor is a bit tart up front, ginger hits pretty hard, and some hops on the finish. Unique but not amazing.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle @ home. Banana yellow-orange, cloudy appearance with a white head. Belgian yeast, wheat, lemon, citrus fruits, banana in the nose that’s slightly spicy. Quite wheat malty, yeasty, bready, banana, citrus fruity flavor that’s slightly more bitter than most Witbiers. Light ginger, fairly high carbonation. Probably would be a refreshing beer on a hot summer day but it’s an average Witbier in my mind.
