COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The mostly-extinct farmhouse breweries of Belgium were notorious for using whatever ingredients were available to them. One of treasures made by these breweries and nearly lost to history was spiced witbier (white beer). Witbier defied an untimely fate, being revived by a man named Pierre Celis who worked in one of the last breweries in Belgium to commercially produce a version of this unique, spiced beer. Celis eventually sold his own witbier brewery and moved to Austin, Texas to open another white beer brewery (Celis White) and the rest is history. ​ In honor of the late and great Pierre Celis, we are proud to offer Community Wit as a warm weather libation, produced locally for our fellow Texans once again. We brew it traditionally using unmalted wheat as our base and lightly spice the kettle with freshly ground sweet and bitter orange peel and coriander seed. The hops are minimal, keeping the focus on the wheat, spices and the unique character contributed by authentic Belgian yeast strains, one of which originated from the same strain that Pierre brought across the Atlantic to America.

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2013
On tap in a tall flared glass. Aroma is a light citrus. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Taste is very mellow with a twinge of citrus. Average carbonation with a clean finish.

Itzjerm (2371) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2016
At first the nose has an off aroma. This could be from the serving location. After off comes a bit strange citrus aroma. Very fuzzy on the tongue and taste is citrus creamy light off and golden toast. Nice head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Aroma softens with time - coriander, Belgian yeast, and spice notes. Pours a cloudy yellow with no head or lacing. The taste is like the nose - (slightly sweet in a pleasing way) Nice citrusy finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a very rewarding beer.

mysticbrew (117) - - JAN 10, 2016
A hazy pour if golden yellow with an ivory head. The aroma is of the tell tale banana with some citrus and spice. The dry palate carries a subtle maltiness with coriander and other spices. There is also a subtle yeatiness to the crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ttoadee (1311) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Murky yellow pour, finger of off white head that leaves quickly. Nose is wheat and yeast. Bittersweet. Middle is citrus zest, subtle spice, light kilned malt. Finish dries some.

degbert (1722) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a quick-dissipating, shallow, fine-grained, bright white head. Looks like a proper witbier. Nose is coriander, orange, esters, and a delicate grainy lemon. On the palate, its bright lemon and spritzy carbonation; inordinately drinkable, but not without some substance on the midpalate. Blessedly free of saccharine sweetness, and simple. Finish is long and lemony. Proper.
