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.

    I have to say, first off the beer wasn’t bad. The reason I won’t be going back however, is the service was terrible, the bartender/representative was clueless as to how to treat a customer, and just to the entirety of the brewery’s operations it seemed.
    on a side note, it seemed as though the place was a bit of “a scene”, a real hipster hangout. It reminded me of Parallel 49.

    Hi East Side. The Quick Wit recently won a Gold medal at the BC Beer awards. The beer seems to be received very well among craft beer drinkers.

    As far as the brewery goes, I would recommend giving them a second chance. The team is quite friendly and down to earth. Perhaps you had an isolated poor experience but most people I have spoken to have had a much different experience.
