MT. Wit – First Impressions

FullSizeRender 3
MT Wit in a GOT glass… I dont think this beer will last until next seasons premier, though. 

Last night I finally got to crack into our Session Wit beer, using Montana grown wheat, known as MontanaWit… or MT Wit…or “Em-Tee” Wit… like Empty Wit… because its a session Wit… get it?

The question probably being asked is: “What wit beer isnt a session anyway?”

Thats a very good question. Most wit ales are between 4.5 and 5.5 ABV. Ours accidentally happens to be about 4.1% ABV after a grain calculation error – which makes ours the most session-ist of an already entirely-session ale catagory. (excepting, of course, the terribly tasting Imperial Wit beers ive been seeing lately).

So, how does it taste? It actually isnt too bad. A tiny bit bubble gummy, lots of citrus notes on the finish and just a bit of a smooth body. Its certainly drinkable and tasty. I’d say on the next one we’ll get the grain ratio correct, and add a bit more grapefruit, lime, lemon and orange. Make it a citrus-extravaganza!

Until next time, Brew on!
