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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white fizzy head that receded at a rather quick steady pace, and produced poor spotty lacing. The aroma was mild of a light grain malt and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (orange), coriander and a hint of pepper. The taste was lightly sweet and citrusy from the beginning, then progressed with a light spicy and mild funky yeast taste and a slight peppery ending. The flavor lasted an average duration after consumption, with a spicy yeast taste fading slowing into the background. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a carbonation that was just beyond mild. Overall this was a very mild Witbier, both in taste and body. Although, it would make a great session beer on one of those intensely hot summer days...

TBone (16561) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2017
[email protected] Owl Farm, Brooklyn. Murky yellow color, small white head. Banana sweetness in the nose. Light to medium-bodied. Riped sweetish banana in the flavor. Light coriander in the nose and aroma. Mellow, light. Despite the ingredients tastes more like German hefeweizen than witbier.

Bought this on 7/12/16 at Krogers @ Swift Creek Midlothian Va. Bottled on Date is 6/8/16 so fairly fresh! Very cloudy and a pale yellow in appearance! Up front you definitely smell the spices from the belgian yeast, these spices hit you first then a littte orange and malt? Very carbonated and clean tasting at the end! Refreshing beer!! I am outside and very much enjoying this beer in the heat of the afternoon! ENJOY!
