Review of Evil Twin Wag N’ Wisdom Wit

12 Feb
Hello everyone.  Time for another craft beer review.  For today’s tasting I’m going to be trying the Wag N’ Wisdom Wit brewed by Evil Twin Brewing located in Valby, Denmark.

Even though it’s still the Winter season it’s not going to hurt to try one of the lighter beers that we usually enjoy during the Spring and/or Summer time.

From the website, eviltwin.dk, I found this nice little description of the Wag N’ Wisdom Wit.

Somewhere between sense and sensibility this Wit was made with wonderful wit of wisdom and wag. Fresh as a daisy, bitter to the end and twisted with kiwi hops & American reason. Perhaps you’ll find it more ingenious than funny, consider that mission accomplished. As we say – better at witty wit than a wit witty.

Let’s pour.

This beer had an ABV of 6.0% and it came in a 16.9 oz. bottle.

It poured a hazy, yellow to orange color.  The head was bright white, fluffy, soft and semi-rocky.  It was excellently sized too.  The retention time was sound and the lacing was outstanding.  Simply, a very enticing and inviting looking beer.

The nose presented a pleasant aroma of Summer time fruits.  Hints of orange citrus, light lemon peel, fresh banana and subdued pineapple.  Additionally, it presented the expected notes of wheat and coriander spice as well.  The fragrance also divulged a slight floral hop component and a very, very, very meager amount of black peppercorn. Very nice.

The taste popped with a pleasant little hop bite and bitterness right off the bat.  More orange citrus, pineapple and lemon.  Some wheat and yeasty flavors accompanied the spice of coriander and pepper.  It even had a subtle white bread savor too.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied.  Smooth, but crisp.  Dry, refreshing and very thirst quenching.  The carbonation was on the livelier side, however it suited the style very well.  A whole slew of different flavors were left on the palate after each gulp.

I’ll tell ya.  If you like Wit beers, this is one to try.  I’m not normally a huge fan of this style of beer, but the Evil Twin Wag N’ Wisdom Wit is an excellent brew and it may be my favorite of the genre.  It may have had something to do with the fact that it’s a tad more hoppy than most I’ve tried.  It seemed to be a more complex as well.  The drinkability was outstanding.  I could absolutely tear this thing up during the warmer days of Spring and Summer that’s for sure.  Heck, I enjoyed the change of pace from all of the darker beers that I’ve been drinking this Winter.  I’d highly recommend it if you are looking for a slightly different take on a Wit beer.  Have you guys ever tried this beverage?  What did you think of it?  Is it one of your favorite warm weather beers?  Feel free to leave a comment and tell me your opinion.

Thanks for reading guys.  I really appreciate it.

Until next time.  Cheers.
