Readers’ Reserve – Witch’s Wit (The Lost Abbey)

4.8% ABV
Purchased at Total Wine and More ($7.99/25.4 oz. bottle) and poured into tulip glasses.

His Notes:

This low-alcohol honey beer from The Lost Abbey pours a transparent pale yellow with a frothy, bright white head.  It offers a pleasantly pungent nose of citrus and honey, and there is more honey and mildly bitter citrus on the smooth and refreshing finish, with a touch of tongue-coating spices (including coriander and orange peel).  Witch’s Wit is not particularly dazzling, but it has more integrity and complexity than most beers of its’ ilk, and would be a welcome addition to any summer barbeque.  The honey adds just a dollop of sweetness to the spicy Belgian wit style, rather than a whole honeycomb’s worth.
