Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers – Quick Wit Wheat Ale Review
Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers has started to bottle their beers and from their initial launch of four bottled options this is the Quick Wit Wheat Ale. This light ale pours a straw colour with a finger and a half of lacing head that is left reaching up the glass. The aroma from this Belgian style ale is light with crisp wheat tones, the slightest of orange and coriander notes add a sweet-and-spicy twist to what will surely make for a light and easy drinking summer favorite. The taste is crisp and light as expected; at the front is the light wheat flavours and a sliver of the coriander flavour coming through. As the flavour profile carries on, the introduction of coriander leads into the presence of orange peel that gives a hint of citrus sweetness but also a touch of bitter along-side. These mild accents of citrus and spice add depth to the easy drinking wit and make for a beer that is light and sessionable while remaining flavourful and more than enough to satisfy your complex palate.The Quick Wit is a great example of a beer that satisfies the beer-thirsty and the flavour-hungry in all of us.
The line of bottled Deep Cove Beers may be tough to find until distribution grows but you can find this at the North Vancouver brewery and at select Greater Vancouver craft beer retailers.
