Very close to the intended Belgian wit beer, the extra flavour coming laterin taste with ginger. Really requires a fluted glass to release the gas as the first taste can hit you. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Taste is ginger, lemon peel and citrus. Malty finish. Decent, but not great summer beer. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Hazy light orange with a quickly fading head. Effervescent up front; a bit cloying in the finish. Chewy, heavy-handed malt flavors of wheatgerm, plain crackers, and hay. Mild hop bitterness with meadowy, herbal, and earthy elements. Ginger is pleasantly in the background; provides a bit of spice and curious heat. Overall, it’s kind of underwhelming with restrained aromas and muted flavors. gregwilsonstl (2574) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Dark straw, almost orange. Thin white head. Fizzy. Alot of orange. Yeasty. Coriander. FROTHINGSLOSH (7925) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-peach color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish and a bit must and dusty with a bit of black pepper. The flavor was dryish, musty and yeasty with notes of black pepper, citrus and a bit of sulfur. Medium length finish of must, pepper and citrus. Medium body. Eh.

Pours cloudy golden color with foamy white head. Wheat and yeast aromas. Wheat, yeast and grass flavors. Crisp with smooth finish. nealblind (1939) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2013
unfiltered. buttery wheaty ginger on the nose. lightish carb. sweet spicy briny orangey yeast flavors with a half bitter finish. miles beyond most redhook offerings. OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2013
A - Cloudy pale yellow with a fizzy white head that sinks quick.
S - A good dose of wheat, sweet bananas, lemon, very light spice.
T - Lemon and orange citrus, fruity-reminds me of mild fruit cocktail syrup, light coriander on the edges, thick wheat malt underneath. Ginger comes out as it warms and lingers through to the finish.
M - Medium bodied but full creamy feel with prickly carbonation.
The ginger is a nice touch but starts to get weird towards the bottom of the glass. It’s nice choice for some variety though.

Poured a half finger of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a dose of ginger with a little dry grain in the background.
The ginger really spices up the witbier nicely here. A little ginger with a mild bitter, rounded out by soft wheat taste.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
I’m not a fan of witbier but I liked this. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Redhook Wise Cracker Wit. Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a pretty solid gold color with a small white head. The nose is faintly Wit like with a touch of yeast and orange peel. The flavor is light but nice. A little wheat, a touch of yeast, and a nice orange blossom the whole way through. Light in body with average carbonation. Nice summer time fare.
