4.54/5  rDev +27.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Cigar City pint glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy dark straw color with a 1/4 inch head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and moderate surface foam. Sudsy lacing.

S- Coriander and Belgian yeast with a firm wheat base. A bit of citrus lies in the mix as well. There's also a faint soapiness.

T- The citrus comes through even more in the flavor. Juicy flash of orange and sweet tropical fruit gives way to the spicy, yeasty aftertaste. Alcohol is tucked away from detection in a good way.

M- Soft and fluffy with medium carbonation. Husky body.

O- Nearly flawless. Weyerbacher's take on a witbier leaves me going "Mmmm."

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.

Serving type: on-tap

3.64/5  rDev +2.5%
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
