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’

Had a nice orance taste to it, along with the wheat yeast. It has a nice golden appearance, and the taste is phenomenal for a fairly cheap craft beer.

Poured a half finger of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body. The aroma is a dose of ginger with a little dry grain in the background. The ginger really spices up the witbier nicely here. A little ginger with a mild bitter, rounded out by soft wheat taste. The texture is softer with moderate carbonation. I’m not a fan of witbier but I liked this.

12 oz bottle into tumbler. Bought at a local supermarket. Pours a super cloudy pale yellow with a small white collapsing head; leaves a thin blanket of foam and some lace. Aroma is spicy, grainy. I seem to smell cinnamon and Belgian yeast, although it’s all pretty faint. Taste is mostly sweet with a hint of tartness and no bitterness. The ginger is noticeable in flavor; also has a hint of clove. Carbonation is pretty high, body is medium, mouthfeel is creamy. This is perfect for summer. As a side note, I love the new Redhook bottles. Stylish and stubby!

Hazy and light yellow with a good head of fine bubbles. Slight spice aroma with the taste of lots of lemony citrus with spice behind it. There’s a touch of bitterness and it seems quite dry. A good summer beer.

12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Aug. 24, 2012 (picked it up in a six-pack for $6.99 at Kiel’s in San Diego on Aug. 24, 2012). Poured a hazy, straw, grapefruit with light white head that dissipated almost immediately. Weak retention on top and sides. Smelled corn, honey, lemon, skunk, apple, sour, orange and orange peel. Pretty flavorful. Tasted similar to the nose, more of a saison feel. Got apple, orange, orange peel, sour and honey. Light body. Thin texture. Above average-to-heavy carbonation. Abrupt finish. Crisp, clean and refreshing. A surprisingly decent beer. I don’t know why I wasn’t expecting that much, but I liked this beer. Great for the summer, too.

Pith (148) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
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.
