Wit Happens is a Belgian White beer brewed with coriander, grains of paradise, and orange peel. Delicate aromas of sweet citrus and bready malt rise from this hazy pale yellow ale. Although perceivably low on the nose, the spicy contributions from the Belgian yeast come through instantly upon first taste, offering pleasant clove complements to the additional peppery flavors. Followed by a soft banana-like sweetness and a mildly pleasant tang, the finish is relatively clean marked by a slight spiciness and a touch of bitterness.

Pours an orange-copper with a thin white head. Aroma is orange and coriander, and flavor is the same. Somewhat sweet, and overall pretty good.

Tap at Short’s...nicely tart Wit with all the typical flavors of the style dancing about the glass. Fantastic summer beer.

There are lots of low alcohol Wits. This is average. Cloudy blond color. Part of variety pack.

rumproasts (2878) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
bottle. Hazy golden with small head. Definitely not quite a traditional wit. A bit more malt than usual. Plenty of orange and lighter on the spicing. Decent.

pours unclear pale yellow with a thin white cap, some retention and lacing. coriander, pepper, wheaty and lemony, sulfur, light bananas. moderately low carbonation, light body, dry and lightly astringent spicy-herbal-grassy-peppery-citrusy finish. i prefer my wits cleaner, i.e. phenol-exempt but this one is overall well crafted.

Bottle (12 oz). Courtesy of czar, thanks! Slightly hazy yellow/golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is moderately spicy (coriander, cloves) with grains, light pepperiness and hints of citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma with more grains and a little less pepper. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Mild moderately lasting peppery finish. Drinkable. Good balance between the spices, citrus and grains. Well executed Wit!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange with a very small head that fades to a messy ring. Aromas are banana, clove, sourdough bread, and pineapple. Taste brings bubblegum, banana, clove, light tropical fruit and dry spices. Light sweetness throughout. A touch watery but still a pretty solid wit.
