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’

Poured with little to no head. Light color, with a hint (almost none) of ginger. Ok beer.

Darkmagus82 (1297) - - SEP 18, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 7-23-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy yellow-golden color with a tiny bit of an orange hue. Upon pouring there is a one finger white fizzy head. The head fades rather fast leaving very little lacing and a tiny bit of foam on the top of the brew. Smell – The aroma is of a wheaty nature with smells of lemon mixed within. There are notes of a ginger and coriander spice as well as some sweeter orange which combine with the aforementioned as well as a little bit of yeast. Taste – The taste begins with a dry cracker and bready taste with some hints of wheat and citrus (orange and lemon) mixed within. A light yeast taste then comes to the tongue with it bringing some coriander and ginger. Toward the end the spice gets a bit stronger with a banana joining in as well creating a still rather dry and lightly spiced wit flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and lighter side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The moderate carbonation and thinner body make it very drinkable and more refreshing, although a slightly thicker may have been nicer for giving it a bit more flavor. Overall – The flavor is a little bit lighter in this wit but its not bad for a warm summer day though as it is rather easy drinking and a bit more refreshing.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
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.

ajnepple (2183) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2014
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.

foyle (237) - Wyoming, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Appearance: pours 1/2 white head that recedes quickly with no lacing. Color is a cloudy gold with sediment/yeast in suspension. Aroma: mild with some grassiness and yeast. A bit of sweet barley. Mouthfeel: light and crisp, akin to a soda. Finish is quite dry. Flavor: strong ginger flavor, some spice (coriander?), a bit of yeasty bread sweetness in the middle and a mild hop bite in the finish.

DialSquare (2663) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2013
12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Yellow pour with thin bright white head that disappears completely. Aroma is muted pale malt. Tastes are wheat, spice, yeast, orange. Kinda weak.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Appearance: 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.
Nose: Mild all around. Candied ginger with sour granny smith apples along the edges. Sourdough.
Palate: 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.
Final Thoughts: 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…

Ibrew2or3 (6896) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2013
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....
