2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is hazy ultra-light yellow, unfiltered.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of ammonia, lemon zest, coriander.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
A vapid, fizzy, thin, bland example with nothing enticing to offer. Very little aroma, and what’s there is tainted with ammonia (I have a very low threshold for this chemical, I’ve discovered, but thankfully it’s not strong here so I doubt anyone else will notice it). Drain pour.

Bottle from The Beer Store in Southampton, PA. Pale yellow pour with a small white head. Nose is mild citrus and yeast. Thin palate - a bit flat. Taste is again light citrus, barely a touch of hops, and a bit of yeast. Forgettable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not horrible as a wheat ale but an embarrassment of a Belgian-style White. Does have a bit of a funky yeast thing going on along with some decent spicing.

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.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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%
