COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Sun Wit is a crisp and hazy Belgian-Style Wit. White Sun Wit is Weyerbacher’s thirst-quenching spring and early summer ale. The nose has a light spiciness from the coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise, and star anise. The palate reveals a mild, refreshing and effervescent wheat beer that finishes with just a hint of tartness.

Transfer from BA review on 7-25-12 - \Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a great level of lacing. Smell – Fruit aromas of citrus orange and lemon as well as hints of banana are strongest. These are mixed with lighter notes of yeast, wheat and a coriander spice, which overall create a very classic wit aroma. Taste – The taste begins a bit on the wheaty side with notes of lemon and coriander spice mixed within. As the taste advances the lemon gives way to a more orange citrus taste. Toward the end the now sweeter (but not really sweet) flavor mixes with a bready flavor, leaving a very lightly sweetened wheaty flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The mouthfeel is on the thin side with the carbonation level being above average. Both are rather fitting for making for a very refreshing style beer - Light and flavorful. Overall – While nothing to go out of your way for, it is easy drinking and refreshing and good for a nice summer day.

beerbomb (191) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 strange aroma - definitely funky, yeasty, some banana and theres something from the spices thats nutty/woody - some graininess there too - very light yellow - flavor isn’t that big - spices/yeast add a dry tangy twist but not a lot of dimension even at 4.6-mainly lightly creamy, grainy, and yeasty, little bit of cheerios - very light wit - not bad overall, definitely refreshing, but the spices seem a bit jumbled in the flavor and aftertaste, could use a bit more body - but the good qualities are amplified when consumed cold on a hot night - interesting aroma

12 ounce bottle
A pleasant session beer from Weyerbacher was perfect for a comfortable Memorial Day weekend. While it does not necessarily stand out from others this typical American interpretation of a Belgian session retains a nice refreshing touch.

Aroma / Appearance - Golden and cloudy in appearance, the pour leaves a glass full of sunshine on the table. Carbonated white head bubbles with a very active purpose. Lemon peels, citrus, light yeast, and fruity esters from a ripe banana emerge with little effort.

Flavor / Palate - Yeast, white bread, pepper, spices, and lemon zest refresh the palate. A transition full of pep perks up the senses. A decent wit then fails to follow through as it fades quickly on the back of the throat. Ultimately though this is perhaps one of Weyerbacher’s least offensive releases and therefore worth trying if you are in their market.
