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.

Draft from Village Beer Merchant. Pours a very hazy light straw color. Aroma is dominated by an almost perfumey amount of coriander with touches of alcohol (which is strange since it’s fairly light on the abv) and yeasty wheat. Mouthfeel is lively but you could still taste the cloudiness of the brew. Taste is spicy and citrusy coriander and sweet wheat malt with a light tartness and funk. Little bit of grainy staleness along with moderate coriander (maybe some hop?) bitterness in the aftertaste. Very decent for the style, although it lacks the orange flavor i’m used to being assaulted with in wit beers.

strange aroma - definitely funky, yeasty, some banana but 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 - not bad overall, definitely refreshing, but the spices seem a bit out of balance - love spices, but they need to be handled with care - would go with victory swing over this

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.

12oz single bottle from Crossroads. Poured an ugly milky pale yellow with anaaverage sized fizzy bright white head. Aroma is the best part about this beer. Notes of banana, clove, wheat, touch of bubble gum. Body is on the light side with very light carbonation. Flavor is like the aroma watered down. Solid beer all around.
