Redhook’s twist on the Belgian style is the addition of fresh ginger, which adds a refreshing snappiness to this lighter-bodied wheat beer. Redhook Wit is perfect for warm summer months of outdoor BBQ-ing, sitting by the pool, or just taking a break by hanging inside enjoying the AC and watching old re-runs of Gilligan’s Island.

new at the TJ's in Redmond, WA. Poured into a New Belgium goblet. 1 inch head, mild lacing, fine carbonation that just keeps coming. Color is a lemon-gold, cloudy as per style. Nose is light citrus, wheat malt and a tad of that belgian yeastiness. Taste is light wheat malt, that yeast again, and the slightest ginger note (might not have been able to pick it out if the brewery hadn't indicated it was brewed with ginger, but with that in mind, you can taste it - but it's very subtle.) Mouthfeel is freaking gorgeous - smooth, medium light body, and highly drinkable.
Overall - I'm so glad I grabbed this one on the way home. I'm drinking it with bacon and eggs at 2AM, but it would have gone just as well with pizza, cheeses, or summer bbq fare.

Purchased a 12-pack while visiting the folks in NH. Brewed on April 20th from their facility in Portsmouth. Really excited to see a new Redhook for the summer.

Pours a hazy yellow, not much lacing. Really good example of the style. I pick up light citrus (lemon more so than orange) that doesn't assault the tastebuds. I wish I could have more ginger, but I can't be complaining.

Perfect summer beer no doubt about that. Highly sessionable at only 5.3% ABV. This is certainly going to be one of my go to beers this season.
