Crab Apple Wit is an unfiltered Belgian wheat beer. It was brewed with locally produced Crab Apple Juice from Fruit Loop Acres in Indianapolis. The juice imparts a tart quality that blends beautifully with the rich fruity aromas. Our unique Belgian yeast imparts a fruit cocktail of flavor which gives way to a crisp, tart finish. Malus Pi is a Fruit Beer re-creation of your favorite holiday apple pie. It starts as a Belgian Wit brewed with crab apple juice from our friends at Naturally Born Juicers. We add cinnamon and oats to further mimic apple pie.

I had this one listed as Malus Pi. A light brew with wheat, citrus, apple, lemon, and pear flavors. The yeast adds just a little to the flavor profile. Not tart at all.

Draft to taster. Looks solid for the style; an almost completely transparent light gold with white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and crab apples. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

Wow, 7th rating... donít think Iíve been so close to a true beginning rate before. Had this on tap at the Trion in a paddle with four other beers. Basucally included it to keep the fiancee happy, lol. Poured a light amber with little to no head, nose was... guess what, apples. Bitter-sweet, light and thin... nothing to write home about, but it kept my Dede in good spirits while I slurped away at the better stuff. So in that regard, it was an exceptionally rare brew!

On tap at Wolfies Den in Fishers, a quaint little place I checked out specifically for this beer and was not dissapointed. Pours a pale, brown/yellow haze with 1 finger white head that quickly fades. Nose is faint candy apple and wheat, not too strong but inviting. Taste is fresh, crisp and refreshing sweet apple over slightly bitter, strong wheat flavor. Definitly A+ for what they were going for...would be excellent on a hot summer day (those donít happen enough in Indiana).
