Notes/Commercial Description:
At the time of its inception, this was a very unique beer for Bellwoods to brew. Though we were earning a reputation for making a lot of high ABV, full-flavoured brews, we still couldn’t deny the appeal of something easy drinking and sessionable. Not really wanting to go the route of the lager, and inspired by the hop-forward low alcohol pale ales emerging from the states, we devised the Wizard Wolf. Weighing in at 4.8% this deceivingly flavourful session ale is easy to drink, and doesn’t knock you off your feet after just one.

Served from a bottle into a tulip, has a nice gold colour, very cloudy, small 1 finger head with medium to small retention.
It has some nice strong citricy and tropical fruit smells.

Delicious citricy flavor, it tastes like it smells, citric with some sweet undertones that are overtaken with the light bitterness of the hops.

Overall I really. Enjoyed this beer, it is a very solid product that most beer people would apreciate.

Sample at Bellwoods before choosing bottles at the shop.

A- 4.0- Very good. Unfiltered. White goodness. Nice white head

S- 4.0- Yeasty good! Typical white beer

T- 3.75- Bit thin here. Not a Hoegaarden by any stretch but a nice try

M- 3.75- Pretty good. Nice and creamy but not as good as the aforementioned

O- 3.83- That is what the rating should be for this one. Overall a nice try but not worth the high price

Loads of lemon zest and peel; finishes with hints of grapefruit. Quite refreshing.

Appearance - Pours a golden amber with a finger of bubbly white head.

Smell - citrus hop, grainy/biscuity malt, grapefruit peel, lemon

Taste - grainy/biscuty malts along with lemon and citrus hop. Light bitterness lingers. Not as hoppy as the aroma suggests.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.

Overall - A crisp and easy drinking session ale. The aromas suggested a more hop forward session ale, but in the taste it is more of the grainy/biscuity malt that takes charge. This is a not necessarily a bad thing. A sessionable ale worthy for the masses.
