On draft at Founding Farmers in DC. Served in a tulip glass. Pours a hazy and cloudy bright straw yellow body, one finger thick white head, good retention and lots of lacing. Smell is a bit of mineral, typical wit spice profile, a bit of wheat and sweet bread. It's clean on the flavour side, a bit bland in some ways, not all that different though more full-throated in terms of flavour compared to Blue Moon. Medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation, goes well with the smoked sausage mussels that were ordered along with this. A bit less spice than I am accustomed to from traditional wits, but maybe I've had more of the Allagash White/Hoegaarden type beers lately.

Yes, the Belgians do it right. One of the best Wits I've had. Light and delicate.

Pours cloudy yellow-white. Smell is lemon, tart wheat, cream. Taste is mostly lemon cream, no tartness. Good mouthfeel, slightly thick and creamy.

Backlog. 11.2 oz bottle. Smells of old socks, Sweet-tarts. This is the most unpleasant Wit I’ve ever smelled. Pours a nice head which dissipates somewhat quickly; pale, pale yellow hue; lots of sediment floating around in there. Taste is sour, then sweet. This is the weirdest Wit I’ve yet to try. Not bad at all, though--apart from the aroma.

Nice light, crisp beer. Generous lace with appealing hazy, light pale yellow color. Taste of hop and citrus accompanied with a slight spicey spike. Medium carbonation and smooth feel.

Hazy pale colour, two fingers head with long retention that fades to a thin layer. Good lace. Aroma of cloves, banana, apricot, coriander, some citrus. Thick oily palate, strong carbonation and medium body. Taste has some clove, banana, citrus, coriander. Good refreshing blanche.
