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.

(Bottle) Pours a cloud yellow (like canned pear juice) body with a small white head. Miniscule aroma of light clove, herbal garden, and some orange peel. Flavor of citrus, earthiness, light banana bread, and yeast. Quite a light witbier.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2010
Tap at Mudville 9. Pours a hazy, light yellow with a small, foamy white head. Bread, yeast and spices in the aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet with some coriander and mild fruits (banana, citrus), along with a pervasive though light spiciness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes semi-crisp with some lingering yeast and bread notes. Not bad.

Lubiere (10457) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2005
A rather pale sickly yellow, with barely a haze, and an anemic white head. Odour is better, with fresh oranges , rose water and coriander. In mouth, way too lemony, with notes of juniper berries, like a gin, and menthol. Very thin, raspy mouthfeel, too dry.

12-oz bottle from firemoose15. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white medium head and lined lacing. Wheat and banana yeast (sweat) malt (straw) aroma with lemon hops and corriander. Acidic fizzy malt yeast and banana with clove and hop notes. Light and crisp bodied with lively carbonation.

hopscotch (9550) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle... Hazy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Nose is of lemon, unmalted wheat, vanilla and mandarin orange. Flavor is well-balanced, but very thin with light clove, orange peel, coriander, funky cilantro (yep, I said it) and lemon pepper? Dunno for sure. Light-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Dry finish. Not at all bad for the style (however, therein lies the problem as wits are not a favorite of mine). Unappreciated by me, but maybe a good try for a wit lover.
