Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 05-11-2011

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.

12oz bottle to Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Semi-hazy straw pour with a head that quickly faded.

S: Citrus and faint ginger, fainter wheat, generic pale maltiness, yeast esters, light spice component is buried and not too prominent.

T: Fruity notes with a wheaty but crackery malt base, hints of spice and grains of paradise. Pleasant, and the fruity citrus and ginger notes work well.

MF: Thinner body drinks well; refreshing. My pour was kinda lame so there was still a lot of carbonation in the body of this one.

O: Not a bad drinker, a refreshing Wit to close out the summer with. The ginger addition is tame but welcome.

Small head and then it dies to ring lace. Lightly cloudy. White-ish gold color. No lace.

Smells subtly of Grains of Paradise or All Spice. Otherwise, it's a simple pale malt base.

Not very wheaty (a good thing to me). Spicy but in a light, refreshing way. A bit of coriander and the above mentioned items predominate. I only noticed the ginger after I read the label. It is there but not easily identified. Spritzy.

On-tap 8/6/13 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered mug glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy yellow color, with a large white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, light malts, citrus and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a thin malt character. Then some mild lemony sweetness comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are a lot of other beers in the style that I would pick first.
