Notes/Commercial Description:
Ten Ninety Imperial Wit is highly versatile and compelling. Our Imperial Wit has a body and alcohol level typical of many table wines, with a drying acidity, lighter body, and notes of orange peel and coriander.

Simply one of the top 10 beers I've ever had. There is a sweetness that mellows the traditional Wit flavor - almost like an oak-aged whiskey. I actually didn't feel the high ABV like in other beers, went down very smooth.

Don't get hung-up because this doesn't taste like Hoegaarden, this is an awesome wit that brings a little something extra to the table. Good on a summer day or when you're hiding out from a blizzard.

Great wit flavors mix well with the honey for a slightly apricot/orange flavor, and an ABV that will make the Belgians take notice.

This is my favorite beer from Ten Ninety. It's "Imperial" nature has just as much to do (or more) with flavor as it does with the ABV. The citrus and coriander are beautifully rounded out by the honey. I've yet to sample a better imperial wit. A great gateway craft beer for the Blue Moon crowd. (Warning: If you drink a Blue Moon immediately after finishing this wit, you'll swear that you're drinking water).

Hazy sunny orange color, moderate clarity for a wit oddly enough. Soapy lace around the edges and a wispy skim across the surface. Thin ring of foam after a few minutes.

Bubblegum and coriander aroma, yeast and spice dominate.

Medium bodied, moderately spicy with a hint of coriander and lots of clove esters. Booze is fairly apparent from the start. Fairly smooth wheaty feel. Nice attempt at the style, though its a one and done. Jan De Lichte is still my favorite big witbier.
