Witch’s Wit

Delighted to get to try this one, courtesy of DrDogBeer (Tom) – many thanks. 750 mL bottle, usual Lost Abbey, corked & caged presentation.
The opening of the beer is disappointing. A worryingly, uninspired lack of pop – oh, oh, this is Lost Abbey after all – problems??
The beer pours with a bright orange, honey colored, murky body. Head is absent and as a result, as is lace and retention.
Carbonation is the problem here. The beer is flat and this (I guess) is another Lost Abbey issue. Zero carbonation and therefore almost zero mouthfeel.
Nose and tastes give plenty of wheat and the yeast gives a German character for me. These are the dominating features, but there is an absence of spice, coriander, orange or much else. Very disappointing.
In the final analysis the carbonation problem screws the whole beer and maybe with a correction this would be better, but for now the beer is on hold for me.
Lost Abbey are all over the place – stunningly brilliant to utter crap. Quality control is obviously a HUGE issue.
