Notes / Commercial Description:
Convicted of a dark art, the crowd will gather to watch as they raze your earthen existence. An intolerable pain is the cross you’ll bear that day as you are removed from this righteous world. No one will summon the courage to save you in fear of their life. It sucks. But such is the life of a witch. In honor of your fleeting existence, we brewed Witch’s Wit. A light and refreshing wheat beer, it’s exactly the sort of thing you might expect to find being passed around the center of town on witch burning day. Say hello to the Prince of Darkness for us.

A: Hazy yellow, straw hues with moderately low levels of head and lacing.

S: Wheat, citrus, spices.

T: Decent beer, though slightly odd. The unconventional ingredients Lost Abbey use in brewing this witbier give it a distinctive flavor. This is a very complex beer, especially considering the style and low alcohol.

M: A bit thin. Decent feel.

D: An unusual and cool beer unlike the other witbiers I have had. One small serving was plenty for me. Worth a try.

A: snifter. opaque yellow with an orange hue. nice white head. low retention and light lacing.

S: a ton of coriander with some light honey notes. good citrus from the wheat.

T: nice mellow citrus flavors, some honey is present. some coriander spice, light hint of clove.

M: very smooth and mellow. low carbonation level.

D: good rep of style. not outstanding but good, a little too light on the body.

I doubted Lost Abbey could make a light beer without overloading it. I was wrong. Pours clear yellow with a bubbly white head. Fresh aroma of wheat, banana, coriander, grapefruit, and orange peel. Refreshingly crisp taste. The wheat, bubblegum, orange-lemon-grapefruit-citrus flavors are balanced nicely. Dry finish. Great beer.
