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.

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.
