Tap at RNH. Very pale straw colour. Thin white head. The nose is very, very wheaty. It doesn’t really have much besides a sort of heavy floury character... kind of odd really. The flavour is quite a bit spicier than the nose would suggest. I don’t really get any of the typical orange/coriander. The yeast shows a bit of lemony character in the flavour but the aroma never really gets there. A bit of light smoky phenolics that add a touch of complexity. Soft spice and a bit of lingering wheat.

Tap at RNH as the Mado Wit. Pours a hazy light golden yellow with a thin head. Aroma is minty bubblegum phenolics, crackery and big dough malts, wheaty, toast- with white fruits- pear peach and evne some strawberry hint? Flavor is wheaty crackery, lemon zest, soap, earth, phenolics, mineral character, light bubblegum smooth wheat and more lemon- light tart in the finish.

This was, without a doubt, one of the most vile things I’ve ever put in my mouth. Smelled and tasted overwhelmingly of diarrhea. A kind of fiercly sick, ’I’ve been up all night drinking lambic and eating chili peppers’ diarrhea. I couldn’t even put this near my nose. Horrendous.

Draft. Pours a pale hazy copper body with an off white head. Per-fumy banana and wheat notes. Loads of pear juice, appricots, pine, some sap and nectar notes. Spicy with some bark and Christmas like ferns. PilsnerPeter (3050) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum: (Listed as Goose Island Mado Imperial Wit). Pours a very cloudy/milky yellow with a fading sporadic white head. Odd phenols in the aroma- some clove is there- along with some muted coriander and some sulfuric/farty notes. The body is a bit slick with a dirty yeasty flavor. Yeasty, dry, dusty phenols and some muted coriander under a thick yeasty presence. Not that bad, just a bit dirty.

Also called Snow Wit. Lightly hazed pale straw color with a taller white head. Aromas of oranges and bread dough. Lightly sweet with a bit of spice. Quite dry in the finish. A bit too many oranges without enough depth. burica2020 (22) - Tinley Park, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Pale Yellow with a whiteish head. Spice flavoring aren’t as dominant in other Wits, with light lemon/citrus flavor. One of the better Wits I’ve had, nicely done. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draft at Clybourn. Poured a murky, cloudy yellow color. The head was thin, white,and left some tattered lace behind. Smelled of strong yeasty bread dough with a whiff of clove. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with minimal bitterness. I tasted yeasty bread dough, spices, and a hint of citrus. I continue to be underwhelmed by this style.

Tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Hope I have the right beer here - the beer I had was labelled "Imperial Wit" at Clybourn, I’m assuming this is it. Cloudy yellow pour, fluffy white head. Nose is citrus, spice, coriander. Taste is semi-creamy, semi-carbonated, wheat, and mild spice.
