COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our wit bier is a beautifully light and refreshing fuit-infused ale. Brewed with a portion wheat and oats, and spiced with two types of orange peel and coriander (as well as another "mystery" spice), the subtle citrus aroma leads to a wonderfully smooth and soft flavor, again hinting at orange and spice, with a dry, refreshing finish. Theres nothing bitter about whippoorwill- its soft and fluffy as white clouds on a summer day!

Rated on 7-04-2015 at Vintage Brewing Company. This draft beer has a small off-white head with a short retention, cloudy pale yellow body, no carbonation noted, and one ring of lacing. This beer’s aroma consist of wheat, light citrus, and coriander. The flavor is semi-sweet, wheat, spicy, and light citrus. The mouthfeel is very smooth and this beer is light bodied. This is an easy to drink Witbier, but it needs more flavor for the style.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty bready and coriander. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish malty aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of coriander hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brew pub. Pours a near clear pale gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of sweet wheat backed by light citrus, light fruit and spice. Flavor starts with light fruit and banana with a bit of backing spice and wheat.

3.8
nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Hazy orange-tan. Thin white head. Fresh doughy aroma, a tinge of lemon and orange. Smooth, medium bodied, pretty well done. The yeast shines, as to style. Creamy and refreshing. Lemony wheat, vanilla. A good rendition.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2011
On tap at Vintage Brewpub. Hazy witbier yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of coriander, orange peel and zest, yeast and mild oatmeal. Taste of coriander, orange, orange peel, oatmeal and yeast. A touch over carbonated but pretty good overall.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Draft on tap the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours a decent hazed straw golden hue, a touch of glow, with a frothy whitish head that dies to a decent sized ring. Aromas are light flaked wheat, a touch of spice. Fading orange peel, pretty clean, with a touch of sweetness, very mellow on spices and citrus.. Almost not strong enough. Initial is lighter bodied, some crisp orange oils hit the palate, with bread dough, flaked wheat, a bit dulled. Citrus, coriander is very light as the orange oils sit well on the palate. Into the back, tart and citrusy with an easily quaffed lighter wheat beer presence. Finish is a touch bitter, cereal grains, touches of fruity esters. A wit that lacks some life.
