COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Wit is a traditional Belgian-style wheat beer made with coriander, orange peel and a bit of oats. Its a beer that opens up significantly upon warming with floral aromatics providing a nice contrast to the straightforward grainy flavors. The overall character is distinctly tart and dry, similar to a champagne.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is wheat, some lactic acid, orange peel, and a bit of lemon. The taste is tart with a little bit of initial sweetness. There is some lemon, orange peel, a bit of pepper, and some wheat. The finish is tart and a quite dry. Light bodied with low carbonation. This was quite enjoyable. I dont think it is quite to style, but a pretty enjoyable beer. 7u..3.u7..4.15

bottle... dark straw body, mostly clear a little cloudy in the middle, bright white head clings to the glass a bit... the aroma is bit off, smells really dank at first, TONS of coriander, a little orange peel, but then more dank on the finish... the off aroma and now taste confirm my thoughts of an infection, light buttery sour, a bit lactic tart, more dank, really thin, not much flavor... big time disappointment!

750 from Northwest Liquid Gold. Pale orange/yellow. Nice carbonation. Orange and zest. Spiced. Very dry, which I like. Very tasty even if Im drinking it out of season.

Bottle:   Pale straw, a little cloudy, some fine sediment, large rocky white head, sparce lacing, light carbonation.   Soft spicy nose, a little floral, some citrus notes.   Getting a little bit of scented candle, which is okay.   Nose is actually rather inviting.   Nice spiciness up front, a little tart, and a quite a bit of citrus zing!   Unlike other American examples, this one is more spicy, less mealy, and has some actual floral character to it.   Me like!   Yeah, this one is rather nice.   Reminds me a little of Southampton Cuvee de Fleur, yet just a little smidgen less spicy.   A little bubbley.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Lingering floral spiciness, citrus sweetness, and just overall goodness.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sour fruits, white wine and citrus. Flavour of sour fruits, citrus and funk. Dry, sour, with medium complexity. More of a sour than a wit.

Pour out of bottle, big thanks to Scott at his tasting for this! Pour was hazy straw yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of toffee, biscuit, leading into sweet but tart white fruit, some slight white grape in there as well, with notes of dry spice. Taste is a nice mix of orange, lemon, and grassy notes, slight tart estery notes going into some spice and biscuit, finished fairly clean with a hint of tartness. Really a nice wit.

750mL bottle, split 3 ways, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sour summer fruits, citrus and some slight sweetness. Flavour is very citric and sour, with light sour citrus fruits, wheat and strong tartness. Not a fan of the tartness in these Belgian wheats. Decent though.

This pours a clear golden color with a big fluffy white head. The second pour was hazy as hell though, even trying to pour slowly leaving the yeast. The aroma is lemon, wheat, yeast, barnyard funk, very light spice, hay. Its very nice. The flavors are light and fruity with a gentle palate cleansing tartness. Fairly dry and a touch woody, almost a little like a white wine character. No real funky flavors here where I thought that was presented in the aroma. Its very refreshing and drinkable and the dry clean tart flavors really make me crave another sip. There is some very light spice, showing as a little peppery. But its easy to miss and I find I like it that way versus the over-spiced American Wits and Saisons where the spice notes are the main flavor. This is a really nice light summer beer. A unique Wit to me and one I could easily go back to often if it were available locally.
