3.56/5 rDev -5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Look: Large fizzy, big bubbles white head, very fast retention, mostly diminishing. Leaves a very thin thick layer for the whole ride. Color is cloudy - darker straw yellow - wheat! what a surprise. Some carbonation visible.
Smell: Wheat, yeast, spicy - peppers, cloves. Hint of banana and some honey. All light, goes with the style I guess. Comes off as fresh and easy going.
Taste: A bit more honey to detect. There is some grapefruit, lemon zest. This goes to light sweet wheat middle, banana, yeast and ends in light bitterness and sour with spicy/earthy honey notes. Some hop to detect. Everything is very gentle.
Mouthfeel: No surprises here too, fresh, crisp carbonation, light-med body, very drinkable, goes down easy.
Overall: Typical witbier, does down like nothing and not too much taste to stop you from drinking it like a mad man. Easy, gentle, fresh, simple but enjoyable.

Lost Abbey Witch's Wit
Appearance: clear straw yellow, good lacing, and a medium head.
Smell: yeast, apples, and a slightly malty grain.
Taste: fresh fruit, light hop, some grain, and a touch of yeast.
Mouthfeel: medium-light and smooth.
This is a pretty good brew. While it is somewhat lighter, the flavor is full and smooth without being watery. There is a touch of bitterness in the finish.

a wit with grapefruit, why hasn't someone done this before? if they have, I have regrettably missed it. this one pours into a pint glass (probably wrong?), a hazy hazy hazy hazy hazy straw color, yellow and thick, brutally unfiltered, yet appetizing as anything. notes of dried citrus, maybe the lemon peel you put in fish dishes or indian grub. the grapefruit doesn't give as much flavor as it does character. its acidic and bitter, not ripe and juicy. I live the fuller body on a light style, and I love the citric finish, its summery and winter at the same time, maybe the most versatile version I have had of a Belgian wit. well carbonated yet a ton of body, zesty and pulpy almost, I like this a lot, but I am glad I paid 6 and change for a glass than 12 and change for a 750ml bottle. overpriced but tasty, another fun and challenging beer from the lost abbey. something to stock in your fridge regularly if you make six figures.
