COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summertime Wheat Beer. In the traditional wit bier style. We use at least 50% raw wheat berries in addition to barley. Slightly hopped and flavored with coriander and orange peel. Very refgreshing and unfiltered.

better than I would expect for a witbier- not my favourite style by far. pours a light orange color- not the yellowish I would expect from this style. taste is more involved as well- definite spicy notes and citrus-refreshing. was going to try a "sip" and pretty much finished the pint. that pretty much says it all for a witbier.

On draught at the brewery, this wit pours hazy orange-straw into the glass with a light wispy head that reduces to trace lacing. The nose has orange, berry fruit and fruit skins. Flavors show clove and coriander amongst light citrus and berries. A zest and peel finish ensues. Light body and subtle carbonation makes for a great thirst quencher in the summer. Nice.

maxwelldeux (3502) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Draft in a flight at the brewpub. Poured a slightly cloudy golden color. I found it a tad sweet, but it is a Belgian style and the sweetness was muted for what I expected.

Draft at the source. Cloudy yellow color, small white efge head. Aroma of orange oeel and spice. Taste is similar.

Very mild witbier. Like a weak blue moon. Very easy drinking but not much flavor.

tmongoose (1213) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 6, 2011
on tap at the wedge. cloudy yellow color with minimal head. orange overtones and light. the flavors of mild spice and orange on a hot day make this a deal at $3.50/pint one of my go to beers there love it. decent example of a wit without the strong of the spice.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2011
pours cloudy white with a slight orange tint from tap. Nice orange peel on the nose. Bigger notes of orange on the tongue. Has a thin mouthfeel and dry finish. Nice example of style.

Really amazing aroma. Great spicing. The flavor isn’t bad, but it’s drier than I would have expected.

I’ll say one thing about wedge: They’ll keep you guessing! RB has the ABV listed at 4.8%, the printed menu at the brewery listing a slightly lower 4.6%, the chalkboard at the brewery displaying a nearby 4.9%, and the official website billing it at 5.1% (with BA showing 5.3%). Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale daffodil-colored body with a finely-textured, white head. Smell: Gentle, easy, breezey whiff of maltiness accompanied by a note of citrus and a sharp, distinct scent of fresh coriander. Taste: Fusion of pilsener and wheat malts with a soft tanginess and slight, sweet dusting of powdered sugar. A citrusy fruitiness of lemon as well as incoming sweet orange rind. Very minor bitterness. As with the nose, there’s still a strapping helping of spicy coriander. Reasonably drying finish with a lingering hint of that coriander. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A solid, tasty witbier regardless of where that pesky, fluctuating ABV percentage may fall.
