Flavor

Palate is malty with sweet banana and spiced with coriander. Bitterness is subdued; hops provide a light twist of lemon on the back end. Finishes dryly with cracked pepper and zesty orange.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel has a medium-light body with moderate carbonation; the result is smooth and creamy but lacks effervescence. However, the purchasd brew is now three months old and it’s possible that the feel has gone flat.

Overall

Mouthfeel and presentation aside, The Wizard Wit’s taste is quite pleasant and approachable; a witbier that’s easy to tilt back during the heat of the summer.
