COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of this classic and refreshing Belgian style ale is brewed with organic pilsner and wheat malts from Canada. Freshly ground coriander and Curacao orange peel, along with a special Wit yeast strain, contribute wonderful orange and citrus aromas and a crisp, yet silky, mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Can @ home, thanks to TheAlum. Pours a hazy, somewhat cloudy, yellow appearance with a bubbly, off white head. Fairly spicy yeasty, sweet wheat, light lemon/orange citrusy, coriander, straw aroma. Very refreshing, somewhat dry wheat, lemon, spicy yeasty flavor. Very easy to drink and a fine witbier. I would love to get blasted on this shit.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very hazy yellowish color with a bit of gold to it. Nice white head and a bit of lacing as it falls. The nose is really nice and does a superb job hitting all the hot points in the style with a great wheat base along with some nice orange and a slight bit of coriander. Great balance between everything. The taste is the same, offering a bit of sweetness and the perfect amount of coriander and citrus peel to complement. Good body; a bit creamy. Drinks quite well. I really enjoyed this. One of the better wits Iíve had in a long time. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-04-2011

Enjoyed on tap at Blind Robin in Chicago, IL while hanging out with some friends. I didnít take notes while drinking this, but this style is typically not my ígo toí style and this was fantastic. Appearance was a nice bright, glowing cloudy yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma of the standard coriander & citrus that came out nicely. Taste was pretty mellow but retained that nice backing of spice with maybe a hint of hops added that provided the citrus. Really enjoyed this one, should have drank multiples of this instead of the other beer I had.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Re-rate: Ok. The first one I had was a bad canning run. The brewery gave me a new and free six=pack to try a and itís a fantastic witbier. Itís reminiscent of Blue Moon, but just much fresher and better flavor. You can smell the coriander and orange peel as well as some other spices. It pours a somewhat cloudy golden orange color. I nice fluffy head with some lacing. Taste is fresh orange and coriander with some other cereal and spices. Goes down smooth and leaves a nice taste in your mouth. Definitely want to drink this nice Belgian white. Original rating: Iím hoping I got a bad can of this, because it was mediocre and bordered on bad. Poured a pale yellow out of the can. No head whatsoever and no lacing. Almost no carbonation. Taste was like a muted version of a Belgian Wit but really no flavor to speak of and it smelled bland and maybe stale. I have liked all of their stuff so far, thatís why this poor beer took me by surprise. Might try again just to be sure, but other than a bad batch, this beer would be a big #Fail. I actually poured half of it out.

Pours a pale yet hazy straw yellow with a medium white head that dissipates quickly into a thin film. Aroma is somewhat muted, but pleasing. Orange, lemon and spices dominate - wouldnít complain if it were stronger, but it melds together nicely and is simply good. Flavor is more intense than the flavor...the coriander and orange peel definitely shine...some lemon notes, hint of clove, hint of bubble gum...yeasty/bready - very solid and very enjoyable! Flavor lasts long after the sip is completed - to the point that it is worthy of comment. Palate is easy drinking - common for the style, but has a bit of depth that is a good thing. One of my first experiences with the brewery (aside from some extreme offerings) and this is simply a quality rendition of the style...definitely one to enjoy again in the future!

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear palecaramel gold with minimal head. Aroma of corriander and spice with some light citrus. Taste is light sweet. Follows aroma with the addition of some dark wheat and more citrus with a little clove. Light bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Very lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, good. Another great beer from revbrew.

Fantastic Wit! Received as an extra in a trade with BlackIPA. Thanks! This is a delicious beer, very crisp and refreshing . Has a slight citrus flavor, heavy wheat on palate. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pale straw-gold but quite murky. Thin wispy white head, leaves lots of lace. Aroma is a big olí burst of bubblegum followed by orange, straw, clover, and then some more bubblegum. Flavor is not as bubble-gummy as the aroma, thank goodness. Tart at first, then lots of sugary malt follows, bringing orange and mild herbal, grassy hops along with it. A pretty big palate for a witbier, but finishes smooth and crisp with some lingering meadow. Yummy.
