Poured into a perfect pint. Bottle. Presumably I have a new bottle design that just says "WIT" on it.

3.25 A: Murky orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left. This is easily the darkest witbier I've come across to date.

3.5 S: Corriander and bubblegum are easily the strongest aromas along with a stout bready yeastiness. Orange peel, banana, and wheat beneath with caramel and toastiness. Based on the description I wrote, it seems like it should be pretty standard, but it has the quality of not being as "bright" as most wits I've had. Still, it's not bad.

3.0 T: Taste is more muddled than the nose. Again there's a hefty yeastiness, which is more than I prefer. It interfered with the tasting of the coriander and yeast products like bubblegum and banana. Caramel and a light toastiness.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light-moderate creaminess with some chewiness to it.

3.0 D: It's not bad, but it's different from the typical witbier. This is unfortunate because when I bought this, I was looking for a typical witbier. Give it a try I suppose.

Wit Ale brewed by Rivertown Brewing Co with an ABV of 5.1%. This brew pours out cloudy amber color with a nice white head. It is an unfiltered brew you can not see thought it. The smell is rich with some grain and bitterness. There is nothing overpowering in the the smell of this brew. The taste is sweet and smooth. There is nothing bad about the taste of this brew.The mouthfeel is nice and clean. There is no bad aftertaste. Wit Ale is a nice, clean drinking brew. Overall, I'm giving this this brew a 4.25 out of 5. I would get this brew again.

Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. Smell is mostly orange peel, lemon zest, coriander, and some yeast notes. The taste has a good amount of spice, the citrus comes through as well, along with a yeast kick. A medium mouthfeel, the spice gives some harshness to the tongue. Overall a tasty beer, if it was a bit smoother I think I would have enjoyed it more.
