COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Witte is our version of the classic Belgian wit or "white" ale. Witte, which is actually Flemish for white, is brewed with malted and unmalted wheat, orange peel, and coriander - offering a refreshing style that showcases the Belgian talent for brewing full-flavored ales that are also light and balanced. It is pale straw in color, slightly hazy from the yeast, and topped with a huge white, fluffy head.

Veeks (63) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2011
good, not great, had at Dancing Cat Saloon in Bethel, light and a little earthy with a hint of hay in the malt, but could have been a bit stronger for my taste

Tasting at brewery. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is clove, coriander, wheat, and vague orange. Taste is wheat, clove, coriander, banana, and lemon. Dry finish. Light body. Lively carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. Feels very close to a hefeweizen.

Light lemony, citrus and sour scents. Pours a cloudy gold with a bright white with fine pinpoint bubbles. Flavor is very fresh and light lemon. Big carbonation and good lacing. A solid Witbier.

tfontana (810) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass. Appearance is hazy pale yellow with greenish tinge, 1 1/2-finger width frothy white head with fair retention, decent sparkle, decent lcaing. Aroma is surprising smokiness, wheat. Taste is tart, citrusy wheat, different from aroma. Palate is medium bodied with foamy texture, lively carbonation and lightly tart finish. Overall, representative of the style without a lot of complexity.

vodka4blood (139) - Miltonboro, Vermont, USA - JUL 23, 2016
This beer has instructions printed on the label of the bottle explaining how to pour it for intended experience. If you dump it into your glass you get a different beverage than if you slowly & carefully transfer it w/o disturbing the yeast on the bottom. Poured correctly, its a crystal clear very pale wheat beer with small head - Dumping produces cloudy beer w/ exploding foam that threatens to escape said glass. Fine witbier!

Flavor was heavy on lemon and wheat flavors. Drinkable but not what i was looking for in a summer beer. Wanted a more refreshing experience.
