2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the Sharp Edge Brassiere tasting on 4/23/12. I’d stick with the ale from Monk’s over this. An average white. Pineapple scent. Slightly cloudy gold pour. Pineapple fronted taste to wheat to sweet fruit finish. Light/medium palate with a fizzy texture, crisp finishing.

Perfect for the upcoming hot weather. Give it a chance. Monks’ Wit, Belgian style wheat ale, was developed specifically at the suggestion of Greg Brown for the New Mexico market as a high end, premium session beer for discerning consumers. Like Monks’ Ale, Monks’ Wit uses only the finest ingredients and imported hops and yeast. ABV 2.75%

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy pale yellow with a very large soapy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish and a bit herbal with faint coriander and pepper. The flavor was tangy citrus, bread and egg white. Medium finish. Medium body. Substandard.

Light gold and hazy. Good head. Aroma is a bit earthy. Flavor is earthy and perhaps even a bit smokey of all things. Leans towards the bottom of my list of Belgian Wits.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of coriander and clove, citrus, bubblegum, and something strange that I can’t put my finger on. The taste is all wheat, yeast and something chemical that I’m not at all fond of. Medium-thin bodied, average carbonation, slightly astringent. Smells ok, but that’s about it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottle] Pours a very light shade of yellow without much head to it. Sweet light malty nose is very faint. Not getting much of a Wit character from it in the aroma. The taste is grainy and includes a bit of lemon mixed with pale lager notes. Green apple and slight oxidation is evident as this warms up. Very light. I would avoid this in the future.
