12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy dark yellow with barely a head at all. Pretty atypical for a witbier.

The aroma has an odd musty note along with they typical fruit associated with a wit. Peaches and lemon are detectable but also that odd funky smell.

The taste is very spicy with ginger being a large aspect which explains the odd smell. There is lemon behind the ginger but it stays in the background. Finishes pretty crisp and a little tart. Moughfeel is quite watery.

Overall, not a very good offering from a brewery with a line of excellent beers. The ginger just does not work, in my opinion plus it is too watery. Probably won't get this one again.

Poured into a Bell's tulip on 8/30/12

It appears to have 05/30/12 etched on the glass

Bright tangerine body, but the beer is very cloudy. I tried keeping the sediment in the bottle but it sneaked in; the chunks dissolve to an even cloudiness. The two finger, white head was reluctant and doesn't last long. Half a ring of retention. Lacking any lace.

I like the aroma; it's juicy and pleasant. Lots of fresh orange juice with a mild coriander accompaniment. The malts seem well proportioned as a solid backing of grains and dough. This is mostly about the orange, though.

The taste is quite a letdown, though. The orange is minimized while a husky, tea leaf herbal quality takes over. The orange peel that does come through is too vapid in this case. Coriander is fairly dull. There isn't even a good showing of malt.

The feel is on the lighter side and feels at times thin. Carbonation is moderate but loose. The overall feel seems unsteady.

Overall, there are lot worse things to get into than a bottle of Razor Wit. I do enjoy it more as the beer warms.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a head that stays to a ring with no lace.. the aroma is a grain husk, slight skunk, yeast, faint orange, banna and clove.. the taste is thin slightly watery everything in the aroma with a slightly sweet orange and flower, pepper bite at the end.. Thin body and kinda dry.. I would like it better with more sweetness.. its ok but wouldn't get again.

From Highland brewing company, this offering poured from the bottle a hazy yellow with light
white foam, very light retention, and light lacing. Nose of coriander and clove mixed with
banana, lemon zest, and light wheat. A rather odd taste...heavily spiced and clove dominated.
Light banana and wheat flavor on the back. Very thin watery characteristic, light mouthfeel
with a clove and light white pepper aftertaste. Nice to try, would not buy it again which is
hard for me to say since I am rather fond of this brewery. An interesting take on a summer
wit, yet there are many others that are more rounded and not so accentuated with clove that
it cloys the overall profile.
