Description 

Originally associated with the Eastern Belgian province of Brabant, the Belgian Wit (white) style is a fruity, pale wheat beer accented with orange peel, coriander, and other spices. This is a subtle, delicate beer, best appreciated by those who like a refreshing wheat beer with a touch of spice character. The name wit (or white) was attached to this style due to both the original use of unmalted wheat, and to the fact that this beer was brewed without finings, so more yeast than normal remained in suspension.

Includes 8 pounds of our blended malt extract, flavoring hops and spices, liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.047.  Ease of Brewing: Beginner

Very Unique Flavor
I have brewed about 30 Williams kits over the years and this was my first attempt at a Belgian Wit. And I have to say it turned out exceptional. I visited several brew pubs before brewing to see if I would like the taste of a Belgian Wit. And this turned out far better than anything I tried at the pubs.

I added 1/2 oz bitter orange peel during last 5 minutes of boil as many have suggested. I think this has really added to the aroma and after-taste.

As many have mentioned, this kit's yeast has an especially aggressive and smelly fermentation during the first 3-4 days.Don't brew without a blow-ff tube.

My final comment is that I was not initially that impressed with the beer 3-4 weeks after bottling. But at about the 45 day mark after bottling with refrigeration, the flavors really came to life. Patience is a virtue with this one.

Good Beer
This was my first brew from Williams.  The order process was great and the product was as promised.
This was a good beer, not the best one I have made but my wife is not a beer lover and she enjoyed it.  
I have to admit, it didn't last long!!

Pretty good
I liked it.  On the Belgian wheat spectrum, it's closer to Hoegaarden than Blue Moon.

Great First Brew
I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out.  But the whole process was easy, and the beer is GREAT!!  I am a microbrew lover, and I can honestly say this is one of the best brews I have ever tasted.  Going to try another soon.

Great Taste and Carbonation
I have brewed a couple batches of this brew and find it very good to the palate.It is also one of my wife's favorite and she enjoys having it around to drink.
