COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

superspak (3224) - Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/8/2015. Pours moderately hazy bright golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness and slight bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish, Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a very nice witbier style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to to drink with robust flavors for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Dacrza (596) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2015
DATE TASTED: May 16,2015... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... OCCASION: chilling with the boys after baseball and cub scouts... APPEARANCE: tawny, misty and slow in its effervescence; white head is soapy and fizzy, with a swift descent into the body; still, the head does retain a quarter-inch consistently around... AROMA: banana, orange and coriander--all accounted for and refreshingly light; anise is tough to detect... PALATE: refreshingly light, but with a dull thinness that only wakens to life when swirled in the mouth; due mostly to the pepper, the finish lasts well into the next sip... TASTE: mostly orange peel--not a bad thing, but not as complex as purported by the label; the payoff, however, is in the grains of paradise, a hard, punchy pepper that balances the banana and citrus nicely... OVERALL: Weyerbacher has come a long way--do I write this in all their recent reviews?--creating a refreshing beer, comfortable in its ABV%...I originally had their White Sun or Blanche way back and believe this is either beer rebranded...if so, this is definitely a thirst quencher with enough flavor to be enjoyed without sun or sweat.

kramer (5348) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow body with a slight yeast haze under a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is quite spicy and bright with a heavy orange peel and coriander quality. Just a light hint of yeastiness pushing through. The flavor is a little overly spiced with coriander for my tastes, but the orange peel tastes pretty nice. Minimal yeastiness, light clean wheat, finishes with a bit of a soapy note from the coriander that really lingers. Light bodied and fizzy mouthfeel. On the whole, a little overly spiced for my tastes in the style.

skmikeg (1216) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is of banana, yeast, bready malts, wheat, and lemon. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi dry, slightly watery, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decent wit beer.

nuplastikk (4953) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2014
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.

bkurtz (955) - PERU - AUG 29, 2014
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 (2483) - Belchium im Biersgau, 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.
