Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Appearance: pours 1/2 white head that recedes quickly with no lacing. Color is a cloudy gold with sediment/yeast in suspension.
Aroma: mild with some grassiness and yeast. A bit of sweet barley.
Mouthfeel: light and crisp, akin to a soda. Finish is quite dry.
Flavor: strong ginger flavor, some spice (coriander?), a bit of yeasty bread sweetness in the middle and a mild hop bite in the finish.
