Pours a lightly hazy good with carbonation and white head. A light wheaty and lemon taste. A heavy wheat taste with lemon and yeast. A watery aftertaste. Nothing special for Lost Abbey.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: straw colored. Hazy, little head and no lace. Clean and fresh nose. Maybe a little cheesy and leery. Honey and roasted, caramel apple. Off dry, crisp. Slightly bitter. Either high co2 or a little sour.
I don’t like the flavor or the balance. Just disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml corked & caged bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 4.8%. Pale yellow colour, slightly hazy. Moderate to low white head. Moderate aroma, notes of grain and dust, hints of citrus and spices. Soft mouthfeel. Citrussy and refreshing flavour, low bitterness. Nice enough to drink, but not great enough to live up to the high price in Norway. I’d rather have a Hoegaarden. Won’t buy again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow color with small head. Aroma is straw, yeasty, refreshing citrus and grapefruit zest. Taste is light-fruity and a bit spicy, and with a hint of tartness. Unfortunately, not spicy enough for my taste... Okay, fine-brewed Witbier, but could have been better.

Draft at Urge. Pours opaque bright gold with a creamy, bubbly white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like creamy lemon, corn, straw, wheat, doughy malt. Smooth, medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like wheat, creamy lemon, and rice.

750ml bottle -
A very solid offering from Lost Abbey and it was great to enjoy this on a warm April weekend. The aroma was a pretty typical wit with lots of florals, heavy on corriander and clove. Flavors nicely tie together pale malts, citrus zest, clove and banana. I would have liked a prominent pepper flavor, which is one of my favorite characters about a great wit, but this was a nice beer. The price keeps it from getting a higher overall score, as there are wits just as good but for a lot less.
