Notes: Our interpretation of this classic and refreshing Belgian style ale is brewed with pilsner and wheat malts. Freshly ground coriander and Curacao orange peel, along with a special Wit yeast strain, contribute wonderful orange and citrus aromas and a crisp, yet silky, mouthfeel.

Can at Mad River, Chicago, IL

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a thin bright white head that quickly died down, leaving just a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with hints of orange peels.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of wheat and orange peels.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on teh palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The smell of this beer is dominated by the wheat but the taste becomes more balanced between the wheat and orange peels.

Serving type: can

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at Beer Head Pub in Schaumburg, IL. The appearance is a golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is yeast, oranges, pepper and coriander. The taste is just like the nose.

Has a very spicy (spiced?) taste compared to other Belgian style wheat beers I’ve had. Nice smooth taste with pleasant bitterness on the end. Citrus is present but overshadowed by the corriander.

Poured into a snifter. A hazy golden color with a thick white head. Bright wheat aroma mixed in with spices and faint citrus. The taste was classic Wit. Belgian esters, floral notes, bitter orange, bread. Crisp and dry with a light body. Excellent.

Hey everyone.

This wit pours quite possibly the most beautiful hazy glow I've seen in recent memory. Pear and pineapple shades with a giant head, leaving skirted lace in forms of what can only be described as ancient language. Only thing I'd like to see different is some sediment, otherwise it'd be a five.

Smells like a Wit! Has orange candy-ish aromas, with clove and coriander, dusty wheat, and hay barn. It's a little musky, but that's the character of Witbiers. Nothing off here at all.

Flavors, well they're within Witbier territory but a little underwhelming. Quite a bit of ash underneath everything else - which happens to consist of some durham wheat, stiff corianders, rosemary, and a little banana. It keeps punching me in the mouth with harsh and unrelenting metallic ash tones. If i could change one thing I'd get rid of that completely.

Feel is slim and only marginally creamy, with a slight chalkiness and a mild carbonation.

Overall, this Witbier puts on a good show but when it's time to take her to bed, it goes south. I would have liked to pick up another one from my trip to test at a later date, but alas I only got one. I'm not too wrecked over it.

Had at Frontera at OHare airport. Pretty standard wit. Nice golden color with a head that dissipated rather quickly. I thought this had a nice spice to it though unlike other wits. Very good beer, although not surprised from this brewery.
