Appearance - Pours a medium, cloudy straw color with little head.

Smell - Sweet grain and Belgian funk, with just a little citrus.

Taste - It tastes much as it smells, but the citrus (and herbs?) are a little more at the fore.

Mouthfeel - Thick enough to be full bodied, but light enough for the style.

Overall - A nice Witbier, great for summer.

Pours a hazed light straw color. Just a bit of sediment. White soapy collar forms and has good staying power. Aroma a dry wheat, clove, and hay. Some may find this wit fairly musty, even for the style. In the flavor, wheat bread, snap of lemon pepper and orange peel. Bitterness is quite mild and par for the course, but Walt Wit finishes anything but sweet. Big wheat, bread and cracker notes; being very musty of course, as the nose indicated. A light bodied, easy drinking ale that has a chalky yeast driven finish. Overall, a worthy example of a wit here. It tastes closer to its Belgian brethren than an American rendition of the style, however not tart enough to really get the Brussels flair.

Pale yellow in color on the edges and golden yellow down the middle with a deep haze. Poured with a short, dense white foam that slowly reduced to a thick cap that left sheets of sticky wet lacings on the glass. Lemon and orange zest aromas with wheat malt and a hint of melted butter in the background. Smooth, creamy, slightly watery feel with light, rich carbonation. Peppery spice flavors with wheat malt and beneath from beginning to end. Herbal and lemon zest flavors in the middle with a peppery bite to follow. Finishes with a peppery and wheat grain aftertaste.
