COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Innocent yet beguiling, this hazy golden brew appears to be a classic wittier with its bright notes of orange citrus & coriander, but there’s a bit more mischief up its sleeve. Behind its sweet exterior lies an intriguing blend of white sage and rye for an earthly, spicy, and thoroughly refreshing brew.

Good beer. A great alternative to a hefe. Refreshing and light, but with a dry finish. The white thin head and lacing. You can smell the rye in the aroma. Good session drink.

Has the peppery wheat aroma of a Belgian white, but with an additional, more peppery rye malt. Sweaty yellow color with a decent head. Looks very "wet," clear and not very cloudy. The flavor has spicy coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise, pepper and just a hint of that dry rye. The spices all coagulate into one very spicy, very pleasant flavor that adds a little prickly-ness to a sweeter style. Has a slick feel with just a hint of fizz. This is a nice little beer; I’m surprised/impressed.

Hazy golden pour. Classic wit aroma with a bit more spiciness from rye. Flavor is crisp and carbonated. Medium yeast flavor. Mild rye malt. ---Rated via iPhone

Bottle from Frank Smith’s. Pours hazy orange with a nice size off white head, some lacing. The aroma is loaded with spices.. citrus zest, coriander, almost some italian seasoning. The taste is very spiced as well and is way outside the Wit style.. but I kind of dig this.. almost like a summer beer for a pulled pork sandwich.

Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of piney pungent rye. The taste of sweet is mixed nicely with spice and hops. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy and golden with not so good head retention. Good balance of sage and malt in the aroma. Rye on the palate backed by a decent hop flavor and earthy notes.Finishes nice with lingering hops and sage, not too overpowering. Very low bitterness from the hops. Super awesome.

For a wit beer, the aroma is phenomenal and very odd. The rye and sage come through very strong. Aroma is sage, flavor is sage peppermine with a light rye bite and citrus flavor. A very unique beer. I’d be proud to invent this. Not my favorite but better than most Sam Adams for me. Head that looks nice and fades. I would like a decrease in sage, and then I think it would be amazing. I think this may be a better winter wit beer.

Bottle: Bright golden color with a finger of white head. Aroma is floral an herbal and rye, but the light scent of sage is a sign of things to come. I found the presence of sage in the flavor to overwhelm the entire taste... some florals and more sage. Too much sage.

Interesting orange/yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is sage, citrus, kind of savory. Flavor is dominated by sage and savory notes. Coriander and citrus. They made what they said they made, but the result is not that great. And why would you hide a nice rye base behind all of that fluffery.
