A classic tale of misinformation and BEER!!

Apparently some members of the Wiccan religion believe this label is not appropriate thus there is an entire article from The New York Times on this.  If you read about the lost abbey brewery, its "crusade", and the meaning behind the label of this particular beer, you would realize that this is NOT something derogatory toward Witches!!  PLEASE BE INFORMED, PEOPLE, BEFORE CASTING JUDGEMENT.

Summer Wit Ale

There are tons of esters present in the beer as well as a soft yeast note. This beer has also been spiced with Grapefruit Zest, Orange Peel and Coriander. Each of these is subtly stated so as to not overwhelm the nose of the beer.
Most definitely, this first and foremost a wheat ale. You can taste the wheat from start to finish. A faint toasted note from the addition of flaked oats is present in the beer as well. This is a light bodied beer that finishes with a spicy layer in the end. The overall impression should be an easy-to-drink refreshing ale.
