Dacrza (586) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 31, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: celebrating Penn State’s first win of 2013...APPEARANCE: hazy, almost dirty sediment-laden pale straw yellow body; head is glacially stacked; its lacing is like well-patterned sea foam--a beguiling start... AROMA: banana, pepper, and clove--the holy trinity of wheat beer scents--is present and strong; honey is bottle-boasted but not as apparent...PALATE: medium-bodied, active on and under the tongue; spritzy, as a seltzer or a soda; refreshing...TASTE: lemony zest is first to stake its claim; pepper is also prominent sipping through its head adds to the experience... OVERALL: mellow and refreshing; little complexity, and little complaint there; the bottle is mid-ranged in price, and in a six-pack would be more than enjoyable....

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.

HuskerTan (700) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. A- Honey, citrus, subtle spice, slight mint, sweet. A- Egg yolk color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Spearmint, honey, citrus, wheat, spices, banana. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish. O- I bought this and then saw it had a year and a half of age on it and thought damn, well this isn’t good anymore probably. Boy o’ Boy was I WRONG. This was amazing. A lot of honey on the nose with the usual Wit beer components and then a big taste of mint both spearmint and wintergreen on the palate. A very easy to drink beer and I only wish the bottle was bigger.

Savage_Night (39) - California, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a hazy gold hue with a nice white head. Aroma of orange, green grapes, light wheat and slight hop bitterness. Taste of citrus,orange, slight alcohol, wheat, slight spice and pepper. Not their best brew but still a good one.

Old rating. Cloudy gold. Grainy, orange peel, wheat, slightly spiced. Just okay.

jflopsu (750) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2015
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.

VinegarStroke (320) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 17, 2015
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.

Sigmund (5569) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2015
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.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a thick whtie head. Aromas of lemon and banana. Herbal flavors. Medium bodied. Crisp finish.

little smell and slight milky sourness in the taste. a bit spicy, but less special taste than i had hoped for. A solid, but slightl disappointing witbeer.

SinH4 (672) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2014
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.
