Lost Abbey Witch’s Wit. This beer pours out a hazy yellow hue with a decent white head. It had a slightly yeasty aroma with the spices being the prominent character. Beneath the spices is a sweet smell, most likely from honey and a floral aspect the finish off the aroma. The flavor carries the spices very well with the mild flavor of yeast and malts to round it out. Slight carbonation in this brew, in my opinion it could have benefited from having a tad more carbonation, but that’s just my personal preference in this case. Definitely a good beer.

Une belle blanche épicée et fruitée qui allie notes citronnées,écorce d’’agrumes, miel et épices douces. Bouche fraîche et digeste, fine acidité et finale équilibrée. Blanche de soif.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle, from misterburd corked and capped poured into a bottle. Nice bright translucent yellow with medium/big white head. Aroma is honey & some coriander, medium body, well carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is honey, coriander, and grapefruit. Quite heavy spiced.

Draught and bottles, occasionally, since debut, most recently on draught at Lord Hobo, 9/27/15.
Very light, luna moth-tinted golden beer with a large foamy white head that steadily fades to cover. Strong haziness.
Light citrus, spongecake, meyer lemon and a ton of wheat nuttiness in the nose is quite welcome as things are generally quite reserved, nothing jumps out and there are clean black pepper phenols on the finish with just a hint of bubblegum/clove and no cotton candy or flaws/alcohol.
Nutty, wheat-laden palate has lighter tangerine-like citrus notes, soft honey and a general sponge cake-like airiness to it. Hints of vanilla, black pepper and lemon juice linger on and the carbonation is tight, ample and adds to drinkability, which is very high. Very clean stuff, delicious and would happily drink it all day.

Barreras (1471) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours a light yellow color with a light fruit aroma. Taste is refreshing, easy drinking with a banana and clove flavor. The fruit flavor is very faint but recognizable. A light beer that is enjoyable on a hot day.

onceblind (6623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Light hazy golden with a thin rocky dissipating head. Spicy nose with lots of honey and earthy belgian yeast notes. Medium-full flavor with a crisp finish. Notes of honey and grapefruit zest and a lasting finish of wheat and crisp belgian witte yeast. Pretty boring overall, with a waxy honey note that’s different but too prevalent and sweetening.

Witch’s Wit embodied an unholy trinity in my last drinking session; it was a collection of three firsts. First beer of the night, first beer from Lost Abbey, and the first wheat ale I’ve tried with nearly two years of age. The latter made me especially nervous. Could a wheat ale with 4.8% ABV still be worth drinking after that long? You bet your sweet ass it could. Witch’s Wit poured deep yellow and had a decent head. Aroma revealed citrus and honey, plus lighter touches of bread and clove. Flavor was redolent of juice, nectar, zesty yeast, herbaceous spice, and sweet malt. While I probably won’t make a habit of drinking old wheat beers, Witch’s Wit benefits from a supernatural immortality that can only be derived from practicing wicked arts.
