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 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.

DATE TASTED: August 31, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: celebrating Penn State's first win of 2013...APPEARANCE: hazy, almost dirty sediment-laden pale straw yellow body; head is glacially stacked; its lacing is like well-patterned sea foam--a beguiling start... AROMA: banana, pepper, and clove--the holy trinity of wheat beer scents--is present and strong; honey is bottle-boasted but not as apparent...PALATE: medium-bodied, active on and under the tongue; spritzy, as a seltzer or a soda; refreshing...TASTE: lemony zest is first to stake its claim; pepper is also prominent sipping through its head adds to the experience... OVERALL: mellow and refreshing; little complexity, and little complaint there; the bottle is mid-ranged in price, and in a six-pack would be more than enjoyable....
