A-Pours hazy dark straw color with an inch of undulating fluffy white head. Reduces very slowly, leaving specks and streaks of soapy lacing.

S-That signature DuPont funk. Lavender, white pepper, hibiscus, zested orange peel. Very appetizing.

T/M-This is freaking bizarre. Has the same earthy, herbaceous funkiness of the Foret Saison, but in the context of a witbier. The result isn't quite what I'd call a traditional witbier. Not as dry or crisp as the style typically dictates. There's a very light metallic off flavor mid-palate. The herbal profile doesn't come across as well as this as it does in the saison. The body isn't substantial enough to support all the flavors, and there isn't enough carbonation to separate flavors from one another.

O-An interesting experiment with mixed results.

2012 on the cork

A: A somewhat hazy, pale gold beer. pours with a finger of rocky white head with a good head retention.

S: There is a green glass beer, Saaz hops moderately-light skunked aroma at first that fades after a minute. A moderate wheat sweetness with moderate coriander and orange peel notes. A light earthy hops aroma.

T: Orange and spice are the more prominent flavors followed by a light bit of wheat malt sweetness. Some spice and fruit flavors from the yeast. There is a light hops bitterness and little in the way of hops flavor. The balance is about even with an off-dry finish.

M: A somewhat crispy, medium-light bodied beer with a high level of carbonation.

O: A average example of the style although it's very likely I've got an older bottle on my hand and a fresher sample would rate better.

More on the golden amber color than most Wits. Sweet malt greets the taste buds. Sparkly mouthfeel. No head to speak of but quite spritzy. Prickly carbonic taste. Acidic wheat flavor. Fragrant nose; flowery with a touch of caramel. Quite malty with enough sweetness to balance the tart. Faintly fruity.

This must be your grandfather's Wit. On tap in a tulip glass at Ocean Beach Pizza Port.

Serving type: on-tap

one of belgiums greats here. this is a unique hybrid type between a classic belgian wit and a saison. the yeast is awesome and alive in this one, imparting floral aromas and a hint of spice to the taste. its a very pale and very hazy yellow color, straw colored really, which an inch or so of lasting lace. pollen springtime aromas of light wheat malt and bitter orange peel, a very delicate balance and complexion. i don't get much coriander as is traditionally present, but instead pick up on some subtle herbs and spices mostly from the yeast. soapy feel for such a light bodied and easy drinking beer. soapy in a good way of course, rich and sudsy. long yeasty finish, really fun and light beer full of flavor, but probably best suited to springtime. just not quite as robust as the weather, but an exceptional brew.

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat and lemon and orange citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the lemon citrus seems a bit stronger. No spices are perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The light-bodied nature of this beer makes it very easy to drink. It has some refreshing and thirst-quenching properties.
