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.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 One of my least favorite Weyerbacher beers. +++12 oz brown bottle. Very nice picture on the bottle - a shallow thing to notice, but I like the effort. I had looked forward to trying this beer for some time. The deScription on their website promised some liquid glory. It poured a very cloudy pale yellow. There was a small white head that quickly faded as did my hopes. But the aroma brought me back with strong notes of citrus, black pepper and spice. Then came the flavor. Tart. Sour. Dry to the point of crying out where is the sweetness, any sweetness?! There was a hint of lemon that grew as the beer warmed up, but even this could not save the brew. There was even a vaguely skunky nature to the aftertaste. As it warmed a dry spicy flavor began to creep in, but sadly is was a bad spicy flavor that only heightened my disappointment.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2005 On draft at Johnny Brenda’s. Another quaffable brew with a noticeable flavor of apricots (must be orange peel). No head and no lace. revisited and upgraded at standard tap - fresh and refreshing

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a cloudy white with a thick effervescent white head. The whitest witbier I’ve ever seen. Aroma was one of lemon and wheat with a touch of pepper and other citrus flavors. Initial flavor was a slightly watery wheat taste with a hint of flowery malts and just a touch of citrus. Very crisp and refreshing.

This is a really good wit. Very light yellow body, hazy, with a huge head. Lemon pepper, yeast, wheat banana, pepper. Body is soft and almost thick. Nice almost dry finish.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2006 Sherbety, lemony aroma with soft doughy pale malt, chalky yeast, coriander, and honeydew nuances. Slight leafy hop and crackery malt hull touches, also. Soft-bodied; light spritz. Nice and filmy from the yeast. Succulent honeydew flavors pair beautifully with mildly flowery, fresh banana notes and crisp, crackery malts. Lemon pulp helps round the acidity and wet cardboard. Rather tangy from the wheat with a faintly coarse herbal hop and phenolic twinge in the background. Moist, but nicely balanced conclusion between an appealingly clean waxy yeast dollop, fresh citrus pulp, and crushed coriander seeds. Fresh passionfruit flavors linger amid the filmy, tongue-coating yeast and lesser notes of chamomile and herbal hops. This is an understated witbier with remarkable balance and a rather tasty yeast profile. A more-punctual noble hop and sweet malt finish is all this really needs.

Blanche had a yeasty aroma, color was cloudy yellow with a greenish tint. Flavor was a bit thin, best desribed as crisp and dry. Nice try of brewing a Wit by Weyerbacher.

The first Weyerbacher beer I was disappointed with. Cloudy yellow color, hops and malt not very noticeable, no real notable spice, with hints of the usual wheat beer citrus. Not bad, but disappointing and a somewhat bland wheat beer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 8, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2004 Highly carbonated with champagne like qualities. Almost white with puffy white head. Spicy flavors of pepper and light coriander. Finish is smoother and light.

I like this beer in the spring and summer months. It is a good representation, light straw colored with a nice head. Tastes overtones include orange, coriander, dry white wine, and honey, with slight yeastiness. A good beer of the Belgian white style.

Looked like a decent wit. Yeasty aroma, touch of spice, seemed plasticy. Bland wheaty flavor. That odd plastic came in again. Light-medium body, kind of acidic. Was not impressed at all.
