Real Louisiana satsumas, golden wheat and the finest barley create Satsuma Harvest Wit. Pale and cloudy, like the haze on a hot summer day, this white beer has a sweet and subtle citrus flavor that is cool and refreshing. Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit is a summertime brew thats Louisiana True.

Bottle at the July Houston tasting, courtesy of Bleeng. Thanks Rick! Pours a thin, hyperactive yellow with an aroma of stale pilsner and dishwater detergent. Flavor is straight clover and a slight bubblegum. Average mouthfeel. Ugh.

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle from Ashur Liquor: Poured a hazy glowing yellow hue with whitish tint and small creation of foamy head. Nose detected is a mild scent of coriander spicing and a bit of mandarin orange peels too. The flavor is subtle with minimum amounts of witbier attributes such as coriander and citrus from a mandarin or perhaps a green lime. A nice refreshing white ale on a scorching hot summer day as I watch the 2009 All Star game.

Bottle was $1.50 for a single at Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aromas of sour grass and garbage water which is only saved slightly by a hint of spice. Flavors of grass, some spice (cinnamon and pepper)

I love the Abita Brewery for what they are - for making it through Katrina and Rita and keeping everyone on the payroll, for committing to rebuilding the Gulf Coast. Thing is, I dont actually like wit beer that much. I was hoping for a more citrus-y flavor, but the flavor is really the floral taste of the satsuma blossom. Its a round, soft wheat beer - OK if you like that kind of thing.

7/08/2009: Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit has a cloudy pale gold color and a generous beige head. There appears to be plenty of carbonation. The yeasty and sweet citrus aroma gives way to flavors that are fruity along with some slightly bitter orange. There is quite a bit of spice a nd corriander that is almost overwhelming toward the end. This beer is light to medium-light and crisp. I was expecting more orange citrus flavor and maybe a bit more sweetness, but got tons of spice and pepper instead!

12 fl. oz. bottle (Alc 5.1% By Vol) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom!. Rating #33 for this beer.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2009
12oz bottle (Malt beverage brewed with fruit & spices). Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden with a dense fine frothy white head. Faint aroma, a bit pungent, sweeter fuller candied wheat, some citrus syrup, coriander. Flavor is off-dry, clearly a fruit syrup added beer, coriander, candied wheat, light tangy citrus syrup, Abita sparkling water characteristic, orange mineral waterish. Long coriander finish with a dry aftertaste. Medium/light bodied with lively abundant larger fizzy soda carbonation, just lightly syrupy.
