COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub-only.
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.

Bulk_Carrier (2247) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - OCT 13, 2014
I got this in an in person trade. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a slight cloudy yet somewhat clear yellow to off white coloring. It had a nice looking foamy one finger white head that dissipated within less than about thirty seconds. The smell definitely had a nice sharp citrus appeal with a nice spice of coriander and clove. The taste was semi-sweet, somewhat yeasty and nice citrus aspects amplified with a slight spicy complement. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me. There was a slight sharp appeal rolling over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a good witbier I would bang again.
