COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wit is a crisp and hazy Belgian-Style Wit. 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.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy pale gold color. Small frothy white head disapates quickly. Fragrant spicy nose has complex notes of yeast, sulphur, coriander and citrus. Flavor is bready wheat malt and spice with salty notes. Typical Belgian style Wit character. Buttery, tart malt finish

Thanks brother Jim for the gift --- dates (?) 04/08/15; 09/08/15 --- Aroma of lemon and orange along with light malt. Cloudy light orange amber color, effervescent white head that disappears like a cola, no lace. I’d say I’m a year late on this, as there is little going on here. Light malt, no spice, no carbonation, a little citrus. Doesn’t work. Maybe some other time with a fresh bottle.

Draft at the Lehigh Airport. Bright yellow pour with a thin white head. A light bodied, refreshing take on the style. Mellow yeast profile with just a vague hint of the classic banana, clove, bubblegum flavors. High carbonation. A bit grassy, peppery, crackery, and some minerals and lime. A really great summery quencher.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Light bready yeast aroma. Fairly thin body. Light and crisp taste with a citrus peel and coriander flavor. Has a citrusy aftertaste with a little spice bite. Not bad, just not my favorite style or flavors.

It pours pale yellow with a full white head that produced plenty of Belgian lace. It has fruity aromas highlighted by lemon with hints of coriander. There are spices, lemon, citrus notes and coriander int the flavors. It has a light feel to it with a slightly bitter finish.

Pours a hazy straw color with thin white head that mostly disappears. Smells of pepper, lemon, other citrus and a bit of licorice (star anise?). Mouthfeel is a bit thin, there is not much going on in that regard. I really enjoy this beer, I am a bit surprised at the low-ish ratings. It is a solid Witbier, but offers something a bit different. There are more flavors at play than just the usual coriander/lemon/pepper/etc. combo you often get with this style. I am not that familiar with grains of paradise (or star anise), but I really like the refreshing end result. Pretty good stuff.

chucklemation (1425) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2015
A bit surprised by the low ratings. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is lots of coriander, pepper, citrus, and another aroma I would guess is grains of paradise. I don’t get any star anise. Flavor is zingy pepper, coriander, some citrus, and a light sweetness. Has a lightly bitter mouthfeel. I enjoy this.

joejames (476) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours cloudy yellow, quick white head. No lacing or retention. Aroma of faint orange and Belgian yeast. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes slightly sour then dries quickly. Tasting notes of Belgian yeast, pepper, lemon, grass, herbs, wheat, light banana and light clove. It’s not bad but not a fan of the style.

Golden yellow pour with thin, lasting head. Heavy spice (coriander, orange peel, and Belgian yeast) in aroma and flavor. Typical witbier.

Bottle. Hazy golden with one finger head. Tangerines and citrus. Light wheat. Mild sweetness. There’s a lot to like here, and I’m not sure why this isn’t better regarded.
