The Wizard Wit is a Belgian-style Witbier brewed by Barrel of Monks Brewing, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a bottle.
Pours a cloudy straw with a thin head of white froth that fizzes away rapidly.
Aroma softly suggests orange peel and coriander.
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 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.
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.
