Made in the style of the Belgian wheat beers that are so refreshing, (512) Wit is a hazy ale spiced with coriander and domestic grapefruit peel. 50% US Organic 2-row malted barley and 50% US unmalted wheat and oats make this a light, crisp ale well suited for any occasion.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Had on tap at the Dig pub.
1 finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly.
Color is cloudy, straw yellow.
Nose is citrus, clove, malty.
Taste is tart from the citrus. No hops to speak of. Notes of clove from the yeast.
Mouthfeel: refreshing, not too thin. Right to style.
Drinkability: very drinkable.

I've had this wit several times, including the first batch. Kevin and Nate have done an excellent job tweaking this beer to rival the world class wits. (460 characters)

On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat and coriander, with some other spices as well. The flavor is mostly coriander and wheat with only a little orange peel. There are some spicy hops in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium-high carbonation. (328 characters)

A: Pours hazy with a slight orange color. Looks like any good wit should. Slight head when served to me.

S: Good fruity smell to the beer. Easy to pick out certain citrusy aromas as well.

T: Really impressed by it for being a Texas Witbier. It has a great flavor to go with the aroma.

M: Standard for a witbier. Slight carbonation.

D: Easy drinkability. If it is available, I have no issue getting it. (405 characters)

I am not a fan of wit beers or grapefruity beers but this one was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the slight citrus note in the smell as well as the subtle undertone once on the palate. The wheat and grapefruit where perfectly balanced to make a delicious beer. It probably helped that I was sitting in a non air conditioned bar in 90 degree heat, but still a palatable beer. (375 characters)

Split a pint with the wife at yesterday's (512) spring open house.

This wit was served a cloudy, peach-color with a finger or so of white head. Smell is full of clove and wheat, nice and light. I also taste plenty of clove, along with bubble gum, citrus, and coriander in this lightly spicy beer. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy and pleasant, and on a warm spring day, this was one easy beer to drink. (397 characters)
