COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Wit is a traditional Belgian-style wheat beer made with coriander, orange peel and a bit of oats. Itís a beer that opens up significantly upon warming with floral aromatics providing a nice contrast to the straightforward grainy flavors. The overall character is distinctly tart and dry, similar to a champagne.

A bit too much carb. Bright, springy lemon citrus; Belgian yeast; controlled wheat profile. Well balanced; good stuff.

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Orange peel, coriander, doughy. I found this very well balanced, but the body was a bit on the thin side.

Bottle. Pours with a murky yellow-golden body with a massive and retentive (if not growing) white head that leaves epic lace. Aromas are floral and zesty, chamomile, lavender, curacao orange, coriander and thyme. Flavors are grainy, light salinity, tart, fresh and zesty. Clean and dry chamomile. Very light plastic, lavender. Slightly floral and just a touch more bitter than expect. Very lively carbonation, clean, bright, refreshing and lower bodied. Very good wit!

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2012
750ml from Northwest Liquid Gold. Very vigorous pale gold pour, massive and almost unruly carbonation. Very light lemon spritzer nose along with peppery spice and rind. Nice playful mouthfeel, prickly in a way that brings out some bite. Bone dry in places, which allows the citrus and similar flavors to stand out by contrast. Pretty nice wit overall.

reebtogi (4194) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2012
750ml capped bottle pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that disappears quickly leaving little lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest and coriander with some cereal grains and lemons. Taste is a lemon tart bitterness with the orange zest and coriander with a grainy malt sweetness. A little bit too tart and dry for the style and not quite what I was expecting. Slightly disappointing for me, but still a quality beer.

madvike (2736) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a thick creamy white head. Lots of yeasty, floral notes, white pepper, and a touch of orange peel. Not overly floral nose like some beers Iíve had, though itís more over-the-top in the taste. Lots of floral and orange rind, with a light soured wheat, mineral, and a dry, yeasty finish. Floral, perfumey notes on the long finish. Light and creamy body, real smooth. Okay, but too much floral for me.

bhensonb (11098) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Capped 750 from Made in Oregon at the Portland Airport. Pours a light dishwater gold with a 4 finger creamy white head. With all the head all the aroma coming through is zest. Near med body. Itís quite lush. Flavor is smooth, zesty and fairly floral. Not one of those harsh wits. This one is comfortably laid back. Surpasingly excellent.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2012
750ml bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with a huge fluffy white head that shows decent lacing. There is a steady stream of bubbles streaming from the bottom. Sweet wheat aromas with some light lemony citrus and hints of orange zest and coriander. Taste has some standard grains supporting the sweet wheat flavors and a dry lemony citrus finish. Mouthfeel is lively and effervescent, dry and crisp. This is a great wit and seriously drinkable. I could definitely drink this all day on a summer afternoon.
