I love Mothership Wit and Hoegaarden and, especially, a local brewery’s wit beer called Full Moon.
So I did my best to make a wit. All right, not my best. It was just a general attempt to make a Belgian-y quasi-wit.
Homebrewing is all about enjoying beer.
As you can see Witless is considerably darker than many wits. It has grown even darker as it’s aged, transforming from orange/brown to copper/brown.
You may have surmised from an earlier post that I am not overly fond of hops. Thus, unsurprisingly their aroma cannot be found in my beer. A tart bready smell is there.
It has more apple than citrus. The house got a little hot during ferment. It was June in Arizona and I’m trying to save a little money. It doesn’t taste bad, though. It has some other fruit overtones that I can’t place.
It’s a little over 5% abv which isn’t too bad. Witless is mine and I like it. It grows a little sour and I don’t mind that at all. Makes it more Belgian-y.
