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.

VillageBeerVin (17) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
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.

12oz bottle. Hazy thin yellow-tan body. Definitely get the spices in the aroma, some nice wheat tones as well. Pretty solid Wit, has a nice depth to it, certainly better than 90% of US Wits out there. True to style, with a doughy vanilla wheat tone, and a well balanced spicing. Refreshing, very enjoyable.

Pours a very light yellow with haze and quickly dissipating head. The taste has some sour fruit. This does come across as a typical Belgian Wit, an average beer at best.

bartlebier (1718) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog, PT bottle from Ridgeview Liquor, Green Bay) Dishwater citrus nose on same palate: soggy feeling of underfermented yeast on a watery body, overspiced with mainly coriander and anise out of context, and quite some overhopping. An accidental, lazy potpourri of a White IPA rather than a suave and mellow wit.

Pale yellow, aroma of funky lemon. Tastes of lemony medicine. Smooth. Easy going.

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 (195) - 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
