RJ Rockers Witty Twister has a thin, white head, scant lacing, and a murky, yellow-gold appearance, especially after the bottom contents of the bottle are swished & poured in. The aroma is strong- coriander spice, sweetness, and spicy wheat bread. Taste is of those elements, with a twinkle of orange peel. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat prickly, and RJ Rockers Witty Twister finishes semi-dry and easy drinking.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours a cloudy golden color with a lot of sediment left behind. The head is slightly less than a finger high, white in shade. I'm damn surprised how long this head is lasting in my glass - sure, it isn't very tall, but that's still some serious retention. No lacing left behind, though.

S: Even for the style, the orange peel really comes through in a big way. I also get a bit of coriander and wheat. Simple even for a witbier, but damn is that orange peel note really appealing.

T: Just like the nose indicated. This does a solid job of bringing some big orange peel notes straight to my palate. I'm not picking up much (if any) coriander. Additional notes of wheat and lemon also appear, mainly on the back end. If nothing else, it's very citrusy for the style.

M: While it seems to be a bit lighter than some examples of the style, the wheat softness is still here in full force. Of course, the latter is counteracted by powerful carbonation.

O: Witbiers - even the good ones - tend to be pretty forgettable. So is this. But hey, it's more tart and citrusy than others in the style, so it's still a solid choice if that just happens to be your bag.

I am still reducing my backlog of bottles, but I have been impressed so far with this brewery's beers. My thanks to the Friendly Greek Bottle Shop for making them available to us.

From the bottle: "Stop by & visit us in Spartanburg[,]SC"; "Our spin on a Belgian-style white ale is a beer drinker's dream. Brewed with a pinch of coriander and a twist of orange peel, this is the perfect anytime ale. When served with a slice of citrus, it delivers a whirlwind of flavor and a crisp finish."

I wanted to ensure that this Wit was Wit-like and so I really agitated it in the bottle before beginning the pour. I also used a heavy hand, which also helped to stir things up and create a pseudo-cascade. This settled into two foamy fingers of eggshell-white head with moderate retention. Color was a cloudy golden-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose was muted for the style and seemed to have a perfume-like sweetness to go with the distinctive wheat tang . Hmm. Mouthfeel was on the thin side and the taste was rather muted, only mildly spicy, with the wheat tang providing most of what there was in terms of flavor. Finish was semi-dry with a slight tartness that suggested that it might benefit from "a slice of citrus", probably in the form of an orange. Color me unimpressed.
