Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Reviewed 1/1/2010 (Draft @ Flying Saucer, Houston, TX):

Pours a light golden yellow color body, with a small frothy white head, diminished. Spicy aroma, sweet, maybe coriander. Strong. Sweet spicy coriander taste. Very clean aftertaste. Very light tasting. Light but filling. Too much sweetness after awhile.

Seven-day-old growler courtesy of htomsirveaux. Shamefully served in a Dave & Buster's daquiri glass (not mine, I swear) that, quite honestly, had some qualities of a tulip. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a clear yellow, with gold highlights throughout. A classic, translucent gold, quite standard for the style. Unfortunately, only a small head, though it doesn't kill the appearance.

The smell is pretty classic. Citrus aromas and Belgian yeast, with a very interesting spice mix. I can pick up some coriander, which meshes nicely with the citrus fruits. A strong wheat presence, too.

Taste follows up closely on the smell. Corn, coriander, and a frankly indiscernible but nonetheless pleasing blend of spices. Some what elements. There's also a slightly off vegetal note, but it's not terribly distracting.

The mouthfeel was, sadly, fairly undercarbonated. Despite flawless packing on htomsirveaux's part, I appreciate that this week-old growler naturally lost quite a bit of carbonation in transit.

Should I ever make my way to Texas, I'll be excited to try this beer on tap. A nice take on the style - (512) is a brewery I'll be keeping my eye on.

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.
