Lava Lake Wit by Crazy Mountain Brewing Company

Share This Review

Lava Lake Wit is a Belgian-style Witbier brewed by Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the wit was served in a wheat beer glass from a can.

Appearance

Pours a crystal-clear gold—its clarity unexpected for the style—with nearly an inch-thick head of soapy white foam that persists briefly. A fine lattice of sticky lace clings to the glass.

Aroma

Floral aroma is faint but pleasant; sweetened by cereal malt and spiced with cinnamon and clove.

Flavor

Palate blandly blends lemon zest, floral hops, and hints of spice. Malt lends a slight honey sweetness to the base.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is smooth but thin with a light body and medium-light carbonation.

Overall

A palatable brew but not one that can compete with better beers of this style. Appearance is lacking, mouthfeel is watery, aroma is agreeable but faint, and its taste just isn’t particularly flavorful. Pass.
