3.41/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Look: It pours pale yellow with a full white head that produced plenty of Belgian lace.

Smell: It has fruity aromas highlighted by lemon with hints of coriander.

Taste: There are spices, lemon, citrus notes and coriander int the flavors.

Feel: It has a light feel to it with a slightly bitter finish.

Overall: The flavors and aromas seemed to be a bit more reserved than most over Wits that I've had.

Really underwhelming Belgian. More like an American blonde. Actually very good on a hot summer day but compared to other Belgians it's very weak.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass. The color is a hazy, straw yellow with a thin milk-white head and lacing. The smell is light yeast and wheat with a whiff of orange peel and coriander. The taste is very light with the wheat, yeast, citrus, and spice well balanced. The coriander really comes through at the finish. At 4.6 ABV, this is a light and refreshing witbier that is nice on a summer's day. Fairly lightly carbonated. Overall, it is a fine representative of its style. I was wondering how Weyerbacher would do with a wit, given its excellent record of brewing darker, maltier ales and stouts. It acquitted itself well.

Weyerbacher's Verboten is one of my favorite Belgian-style Pale Ales, so I was really excited to try their Wit. It pours a hazy yellow, and smells like any typical wheat beer (orange peels). The taste is very light, but definitely refreshing, and it goes down softly with an orange-y aftertaste. There's not much to it, it's a bit of a disappointment in comparison to the other beers Weyerbacher makes, but there's certainly nothing wrong with it.

Drink if you want a light beer that doesn't taste skunked or cheap, and has a twinge of orange in it.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Bottled on 03/31/15 Best by: 08/31/15
Beautiful hazy golden yellow body, great look for a witbier. Tons of suspended floaties, just like you want.
Aromas of coriander and some pear or apple juice.
Refreshing tastes of pear, bitter orange peel and yeast.
Clean finish and pleasing taste.
A good witbier to be sure. A perfect hot summer day beer! Weyerbacher has been brewing great beers for many years and this is another decent beer. Can drink plenty of this and be quite refreshed.

Bottled on Date stamp = 4/8/15 Nice Hot summer day in Austin Tx. ! I got.t this out of the frig...Pulled up a seat on the patio W/ the great view and enjoyed this Wit- Beer is very good , Wit is Weyerbacher’s 4.6% ABV thirst-quenching spring and early summer ale. The nose has a light spiciness from the coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise and star anise. As you drink this all of the flavors come forward , Very smooth Summer Beer, !!!
