COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Optimal Wit is brewed in the Belgian Wit Bier tradition. It is brewed with raw wheat and oats, and steeped with coriander, orange peel and grains of paradise. This ale is a pale golden color with a bit of cloudy haze from bottle conditioning. This unfiltered ale offers layers of complex, nuanced flavors that evolve in the glass. It finishes crisp and refreshes the palate.

Sampled at Repeal. A fairly standard wit, which is not a bad thing. Some decent fruitiness and ut is a little smoother than most. Pleasant wit.

Ron (4064) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle. Poured a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma has lots of spices with pepper. Lemons and oranges in the aroma too. Taste is fruity and flavorful. Slightly tart with oranges. Aftertaste is a bit peppery with cloves and other spices. Overall a solid wit.

jbruner (5013) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle shared at catch 22 bottle share! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma and taste are standard for the style, overall a decent wit, but just ok, nothing exciting.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7944) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with a small creamy white head that faced and left minimal lacing. The aroma was tangy sugar, a bit of golden fruit and coriander. The flavor was bitter, tangy and musty with notes of table sugar, coriander and cardboard. Medium length finish. Medium boyd. Meh.

Bottle (trade with non Rate Beer member); pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head; aroma is yeast, citrus, and spice; taste is citrus and spice; finish light bitter; nicely balanced beer but wish the flavors were a touch stronger.

Cloudy white with a thinnish head on draft at citizen burger bar. Aroma is almost nonexistent. A bit citrus flavor actually mostly citrus because there’s not a lot of anything else. Decent wit though.

12 oz bottle. Bottled on 07/09/2014. (Chip’s Wine & Beer) Kill Devil Hills, NC.
Hazy yellow golden colour with a tiny white head. Citrus, coriander, wheat, yeast and some spices in the aroma. The flavour is coriander, wheat, citrus, mild yeast and some spices. Quite true to Belgian Witbier. Enjoyable.

Appearance: hazy bright yellow, one finger of bright, creamy white head. Aroma: good nose of light cracked pepper, toasted coriander, citrus, and wheat. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: zippy finish, with a bit of citrus, a hint of bubblegum, and a little wheat. Notes: Super palate, extremely refreshing. Great example. On draft at the awesome Full On in Rockville, MD.
