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.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Decent take from Weyerbacher on the belgian wit style. Nice taste with a good mouthfeel. Would highly enjoy on a warm summer day. --you've been Dubbed.

Sample at the brewery. Light pale yellow pour. Aromas are sulfuric, at first, but they mellow with a bit of age so I won’t think too poorly of them since this is a new batch. Lemon, sour citrus, hints of candied sugar. Not that great.

Bottle from Neons. Mostly clear golden color. Thin white head. Fine particles in the body. Smooth crisp lighter carbonation, light to medium body. Lightly slick. Good Belgian yeast aroma, lighter spice for a wit. Head fades to Minimal. Solid, smooth wit.

Wonderful wit, not too sweet with just the perfect amount of coriander. Pours perfectly, a little hazy with a nice frothy head. A little high on the carbonation for my usual liking, but I can look past this because of the wonderful taste. Looking forward to next summer!

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a hazy bling with fluffy white head. Aroma was sweet with citrus and spice, refreshing. Tate was mellow with just the right amount of coriander peeking through. Very good brew, not amongst the big boys (DFH, Allagash) but very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crisp and tart. Tiny bubbles, frothy white head. Sweet with a lot of spice. Really nice.

2013.11.18 - Weyerbacher White Sun - 12oz bottle in pint glass. Not going to go into a bunch of detail... I’m not a big fan of the style but I do enjoy most Weyerbacher brews so I gave it a shot. Smells a bit like Weyerbacher Seventeen, minus the pepper. Similarly tastes kind of like that. Basically a light golden ale, smells a bit peppery but more citrusy lemon or orange, and the taste has the elements listed on the label... But overall too light for me. Granted it’s intended as a summer session-y beer and is probably pretty good in that role. 7/2/6/3/13

Bottle from the Craftsman, Harrison, NY. Hazy pour. No head, city's aroma. Sharp, fruity taste. Not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Appropriate light yellow color, quickly fading head. Aroma clearly of coriander and orange peel. Taste had light coriander, some orange notes, but lacked the wheatiness that I expect.

jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on September 8th, 2013.

Appearance:Pours a yellow cloud.
Aroma: Aroma of lemon, light wheat, light yeast.
Taste: Lemon, wheat, not too much depth.
Palate:Light body, light fizz.

Summary: An okay take on a witbier, not the depth of flavor I usually look for in these but I get the idea of having it for summer.
