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.

Tasted on 7/28/12 on draft at the brewpub with Erika. Pours hazy golden with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is classic wit, with creamy wheat malt, plenty of orange peel, and some spices. The flavor is quite creamy with wheat malt, lightly bitter orange peel, and coriander. The body is nearly full with a creamy texture, average carbonation, and a long creamy orange peel finish.

My Bottom Line:
Coriander and orange peel ride this Witbier proudly.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the hazy pale blond.
-This brew leans on spices a bit too much for my tastes.
-Mild herbal hop bitterness works well with the coriander.
-Mouthfeel is lean and drinkable.
-These guys can do Belgian styles quite well even though they are an American brewpub serving from the tap only.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

A hazed pale blonde wit with a thin white head. In aroma, nice classic fruity malt with light cloves, banana, eugenol, pleasant. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with banana, cloves, esters, nice and smooth. On tap at brewery.

Draught at the Wedge, Asheville, NC. Hazy yellow colour with a tiny white head. Strong coriander aroma with some wheat, mild yeast and mild fruitiness. Great. The flavour is mild fruity hops, spices, coriander, wheat and mild yeast. Very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromas of wheat and citrus float up from a unfiltered straw hued pour. The taste is wheat, orange citrus and notes of Belgian yeast. Medium light body and moderate carbonation. An enjoyable "midday" beer consumed at the brewery.

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.

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.
