BELGIAN STYLE WIT Spicy / Refreshing / Bright
Amid bursts of confetti & music, the Juggler entertains us with a handful of oranges. As the oranges rise & fall, the planets revolve in the universe, babies are born, & the old pass on. Jongleur – our silky bodied, spicy & aromatic Wit – infuses any moment with a spark of joy. A glass of this bright & refreshing beer reminds us of the juggler’s simple lesson: to take pleasure in both the big & the small things in life.

Cloudy pale straw color. The head quickly disappeared, leaving a few bubbles around the edge. No lacing. Too cloudy to see any bubbles rising.

Sweet floral scents dominate. There is some ester that I can't place. At times there is a bit of a raspberry or blackberry scent. Swirling the glass kicked up a mild barnyard.

Sweet wheat malt flavor dominates. There is a hint of wheat husk, or wheatgerm, like a whole wheat bread. Some light orange citrus shows up towards the end and through the aftertaste. There is a mild spicy burn on the tongue in addition to the carbonation tingling.

A bit of tongue tingling, but it doesn't foam up so much as bubble up. Medium-heavy body, somewhat oily in texture.

Generally accurate to style, but it felt like it was missing something. The citrus was much lower than expected, so maybe it could use a twist of lemon. I was also expecting a bit more sediment. The barnyard scent was also out of character for a wit.

Really an excellent wit. Big banana flavour with coriander, with other light fruits dancing around, with a crisp wheat backbone. A bit of bubblegum but not strong, which often kills these beers for me. The nose is very perfumey. Body is light with a lively but not aggressive carbonation. A very refreshing beer- ideal summer brew. If it was local to me, I would buy it a lot.
