On tap at the taproom. It poured a hazy straw color with a small white head. The aroma was spicy with some banana and lemongrass. The taste was similar with some spiciness and a little heavy on palate. A decent Witbier.

seymour (1459) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sampled on tap at the 2012 Schlafly Hop In The City festival. It poured a hazy, light golden color with fluffy white foam, somewhat lasting with lace. 100% true-to-style Belgian wit aromas and flavors. Light, grainy, tart, citrusy, peppery, reminiscent of crusty white French bread, light bubble-gum. Just a hint of coriander and orange peel. Delicious. A huge upgrade to Blue Moon.

phaleslu (6616) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Draft at the Tap Room, served in a weizen glass. Listed on the board as ’WItbier’ and not just ’Wit’. This has been on tap for about a month and I can’t believe I didn’t notice it the last couple times I’ve been here. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a frothy bone white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, clove, and some unusual lactose and plastic notes. Those also showed up to a degree in the flavor, along with a medicinal note that clouded the otherwise typical banana, clove, and wheat notes. A little lemon citrus emerges. Light-medium bodied, with a wheaty mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I would have liked this a lot more without those strange notes putting this one off a little bit.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Draft at taproom location (Released 7/23/10). A cloudy yellow with a creamy white head that left think lace. Aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. The flavor followed along with banana and clove with a lemon backing. Light body.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Tasted 9/19/09. Schlafly’s Hop in the City. Draft. Hazy golden hued. Aromas of perfumy citrus and slightly spicy. Medium bodied with a slight peppery flavor. Nice meld between the wheat and the yeast. Cereal grains and citrusy flavors. The perfumy floral yeast really adds a nice touch. The finish is faint yet mildly lingering. Nice.

Narnad (1464) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2009
On tap at the Schlafly Tap Room on 9-5-09. Arrived to the table with a thin white head, light yellow haziness to it with a modest amount of carbonation. Aroma had a fair amount of coriander, lots of wheat with very light lemon/orange fruitiness to it. Flavor has the coriander spice hit first with the wheat and light banana and finishes with a very light grassy ending. Very light in density, good lacing and a fantastic head retention as you drink it down. Overall the flavors are light to go along with the mouth feel and fits the style pretty good. Pretty decent summertime brew.

hopscotch (9256) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Draft… Murky straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. The grainy, fruity, spicy aroma tenders notes of wheat, coriander, clove and banana. Medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The well-balanced flavor mirrors the nose with essences of banana, citrus and spice. Finishes sweet and spicy.

theisti (3259) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Shaker Pint on Draft at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, Missouri. Pour is a cloudy hazy yellow. Some nice swirling settling as it arrived. Nice, full white head, falls slowly with with thick glass coating lacing. Aroma has clove, banana some wheat and spicy-earthy-mineral yeastiness. The taste mirrors the nose quite nicely, with good balance between the clove, wheat and the yeast notes. The earthiness is particularly evident in the finish, closing the beer out nicely. The palate was medium, and paired nicely with the Jalapeno pizza I was eating. This was a nice Wit.

hayduke (3390) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
From the brewpub in St. Louis, MO this draft pour came a butterscotch color, hazy as smog in LA, and with small fizzy white head and not much lacing. Nose of floral and citrus hops, and a medium mouthfeel. Flaor is of wheat and banana, and the finish is average. Very easy to drink.
