BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Redhook Ale Brewery
New Hampshire, United States
redhook.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Redhook’s twist on the Belgian style is the addition of fresh ginger, which adds a refreshing snappiness to this lighter-bodied wheat beer. Redhook Wit is perfect for warm summer months of outdoor BBQ-ing, sitting by the pool, or just taking a break by hanging inside enjoying the AC and watching old re-runs of Gilligan’s Island.

Poured from bottle into English pub glass, look is a cloudy gold with no lacing and minimal head that lasts no time, smell can immediately smell the spices ginger and sugary notes, taste is strong and sweet very overpowering with ginger and a lingering after taste and dry mouth feel.

Good beer but not something I feel I can drink a lot of, good for a night when having just a few. Not super heavy just a powerful taste recommend to all.
