This beer pours a bold, clear yellow with finger thick head and nice lace to the finish. The aroma is lemony with a bit of spice and some grass. The flavor is lemon with notes of hay and mild hops with a mildly dry, vinous finish. The mouthfeel is light-medium. Weyerbacher Blanche is a good beer, a good representation of the style and a good pairing with tuna broccolli casserole. Recommended.

08/25/11 I knew it then as Weyerbacher Blanche, but is now known as White Sun Wit and is available seasonably.

Not that I mind as I found it to be just OK. A tad heavy, even at just 5% ABV.

The "coriander and dried curacao orange peels" used to create a "clean finish...with just a hint of tart spiciness" missed the mark, IMHO.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I like American Wit beers usually was well as Belgians, they're just different. I like this brewer. But find them inconsistent.

A: Must aggressively pour, and when you do, rewarded with big foamy white sudsy head, that lace and laces all the way down. Cloudy lemony yellow body.

S: Perfumey, but a bit medicinal. Flowers, fruit blossom, plus wheat, musty spice, brine, clove, bright yeast, and a bouquet of fruit blossoms.

T: Follows smell onto the sweeter, maltier direction as in flower/orange/coriander cookies. More orange flower water than bitter or peppery. Finishes nicely, fruity, and a bit medicinal which mars it enough that I'd go elsewhere. Two would be one too many.

MF: Soft, perfumey, light, watery. Not alcoholic. Good with food.

Too fruity for me to drink more than one. But feminine, flowery, perfumy if you like em that way.

4.08/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Cloudy light golden color with a one finger off-white colored light head that dissipated quickly, small amounts of bubbles rising in the glass.

Smell - Citrus, coriander, and floral followed by biscuit and a faint spiced finish

Taste - Strong coriander followed by sweet wheat then light slightly tart citrus with a light sour citrusy biscuit finish.

Mouthfeel - Light, smooth, light carbonation with a dry finish

Overall - Refreshing and sessionable. Very good wit beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pale yellow with a one-finger head
S: Sweet wheat, toffee, coriander, hints of florals & citrus
M; Light-bodied, balanced but a short finish
O: Tasty, refreshing, would be a good session beer. No flaws but overall unmemorable; needs a longer finish
