COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Though a quart of ale is a dish for a king (The Winter’s Tale, Act IV, Scene II), the jester solely craves a kind of wit. And a wit so fitting must be laden with the guile of amchoor (unripe mangoes, dried and ground), the subtle cunning of citrus peels and the smiling bite of exotic spices, so as to illuminate with a slight sting. Enjoy our Belgian style ale, ripe with mischief and tragic deliciousness, and with only the sharpest of tongues, admire truly A Foolish Wit!

Oh what a wit! Late December back in twenty twelve what a very special wit from the shelve. What a wit-off what a wit. Tons of Mango and tropical flavors dominate with nice zest and spicyness of a wit. Maybe hoegarden should chuck a bunch of mangos in there to make it better?

Bottle. Pours muddy orange cream with white head. Nose and taste of exotic spice, mango, wheat malt, banana, clove, exotic tropical fruit and orange peel. Lots of exotic fruit/mango. Medium body. One of the best beers of this style I’ve had.

BeerMeFitz (11) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Local 1675 Tulip It ours a very cloudy with a hazy orange and a two finger white head. Big trails of lacing remain on the glass. Smells like orange and lemon along with lots of spices. Taste follows nose with citrus being more dominant over the spices. Lemon, oranges, spices. It has a medium body and high carbonation. Overall not a typical witbier.... more of a citrus take These guys keep rolling out great beer after great beer after great beer I got $20 in my pocket! Gonna go get some more!

HonkeyBra (3528) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2012
22 oz bottle. This beer pours a dirty orange color with almost no head. Aroma of wit spice, pinapple, mango, coriander and orange peel. Flavor is very fruity, mild sweetness, light tartness imparted by mango and citrus notes. Nice, refreshing, and certainly more flavor than the average wit. The body is medium, slick. Solid, flavorful wit.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours a hazy straw yellow. Notes of citrus a spice. The citrus gives way to a medium bodied spice that invokes notes of white pepper. Yeast flavors show a dominance. Nice flavorful finish.

22oz bottle. Pours a hazy milky yellow with a white head. Nice spicy aroma. Lots of that lemon corriander with some bubblegum Belgian yeast. Some earthy and sweet undertones as well. Fruity bubblegum red fruit and grapefruit flavors. I really like the yeast esters with a strong bitterness from grapefruit and pine. The spices seemed too much at first but my palate adjusted since they are not too overbearing halfway through a glass. I’d like less of the spice, but it works. Tasty.
