SteveOrz85 (214) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2016
From large cork and cage bottle. Served in fancy pint glass. Beer is very hazy golden color. Two finger fluffy white head. Very little lacing. Aroma of yeast and orange zest. Taste is crisp with a nice mouth feel. Notes of orange peel and some light yeast esters. Light to medium bodied beer. Average carbonation. Over all an enjoyable warm weather beer.

Bomber shared with Jacob.

I waited way too long to try this one. I’m not usually a huge wit fan because I don’t like the heavy esters, but this one doesn’t have them. In their place, a superbly drinkable explosion of dry rustic flavor. Yikes--I need more!

GarrettB (1457) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2016
August 1st, 2014 - The Witch’s Wit sits with a somber calmness, like the town hag, forced to listen to petulant peasants preach on about ineffective folk cures and the piousness of stupidity. And the smell is musty, old, with cobwebs, wet hay, and glue. There’s also an pastoral note, featuring wheat and butter, as well as the clean scent of cauliflower. Smelling both young and old, it is hard to tell which one the Witch’s Wit is, not unlike the Red Witch of Game of Thrones fame. The flavor is modestly tangy, and conjures a wonderful transmogrification of flavors from the foretaste to the aftertaste. Witness, at the beginning, those floating notes of wheat and grain, and gasp in horrified rapture as those turn into sassafras and root beer notes, getting louder and louder, until they suddenly disappear (or disapparate, as the Harry Potter inclined would say) into oblivion.

TET (2632) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
A golden beer, a head is medium and white. Aroma is strongly aromatic, I like it. Flowers, perfume, some lemon and coriander. Taste is strong flowers, some spices, hint of lemon and lemon zest. Quite light bodie, just as it should be. Not a traditional witbier but tasteful beer. Hugely aromatic with flowers.

wombat23 (684) - Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Draft at the source on 6/29/2016. Hazy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat and spice. Taste is mild grapefruit, wheat, honey, and spice. Refreshing.

Scipio (830) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Pours a clear yellowish golden with a full, and foamy, slowly settling white head. The aroma contains floral hops, spices, lemon, orange, and honey, with none of these impressions standing out. The taste is a tad sweet, with more spices and orange, hints of grapefruit and lemon, and some wheat. The aftertaste is light and is spices and orange. This is lighter in body, has a bit of a sticky texture, and has soft, bubbly carbonation. I was hoping for more.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Has a fruity wheat malty zesty aroma. Fruity wheat malty spicy grapefruit zest flavor. Has a fruity wheat malty spicy finish.
