An interesting feature of this wit beer and if done in an authentic way is that around half or to be conservative 3/4 of the bottle is a clear golden rich yellow. The other half or 1/4 is creamy due to the plentiful use of yeast. cork was easy to pull opt though with that said I can easily lift 150 pounds the carbonation felt completely natural- beer really should not have the carbonation of coke! The carbonation helps build the complex flavor of the beer. The flavors of the beer smelt like wheat -- no duh--, furthermore it smelt of citrus-- it seemed grapefruitish to me, due to the dryness. I like that this wit had had a touch of hops that was very mild, but added a kick that many wits are missing. The flavor was much richer than most wits; it tasted of vanilla bean. To me abbey has a tie with Avery for the best wit I have had-- I have only had American wits. A nice job from a brewery that choose to do what they want to do and not what the vocal clowns want them to do- there should be more breweries like them.

Draft at Jerry?s. Pale gold with fine, foamy, white head, good lacing / Fruity, spicy nose of tropical & citrus fruit, straw, resin, honey / Medium body, somebsprtz but thick, fruity, resinous, and lightly sweet, but with excellent hop balance, and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of pear, banana, orange peel, resin, straw coriander / An exceptional and complex wit.

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.

Bottle sampled at the RBSG hosted by Lost Abbey. This one is right up my alley. I love the style and you guys hit this one on the head. Very good. Very refreshing.

Cork popped and aromas of citrus and grasses was present. Cloudy yellowish in appearance. Taste of honey, oranges, vanilla made it a very refreshing wit. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation and quick tasty finish.

very wheaty, citrus, yeasty. Taste is very smooth. Almost like a really really REALLY high quality shandy. Refreshing, lots of Belgium yeast but not too much. smooth, well balanced. nice. Aftertaste leaves your mouth wanting more.

Bottle from Stan @ Lone Hill. My friends thought this was weak, flat and unexciting; while I admit I was looking for more grapefruit indications, I interpreted this beer as greatly smooth for a Wit. Not lemony or raucous in the way that Hooegarden is, this beer contains very slight honey, and I think the grapefruit zest counteracts the tartness usually around in a Wit - maybe a bit too well.
