From Railway City Brewing Co.,
The Witty Traveller’s tale opens with a potpourri of spices and fruit – sweet anise seed and subtle orange rind. As you delve deeper into the libation you discover clove and bananas alongside soft and sweet arrowroot biscuit with a short layover of bubble-gum before cleansing fresh-pepper and gingersnap.

Smell | Tartness, orange, tropical citrus, and hint of biscuits.
Taste | Tartness, orange zest, bananas, cloves, hints of biscuit and hint of pepper.
Aftertaste | Dry finish with notes of citrus, zest, pepper, and bananas.
Overall | First off, The Brew Head would like to thank Marissa Begin (@thebeergypsy) of Railway City Brewing Co. for bringing this delicious brew to Guelph, ON for me to sample. You’re a witty traveller from Ottawa to St. Thomas to Guelph to Ottawa! Back to the brew, The Witty Traveller is a light, fruity, and tart brew that will be very enjoyable in the warm weather. The high carbonation and tartness in this brew make it a brew that is light on the palate. Don’t let the pepper taste deter you, it compliments the flavours well. This delicious beer is, not surprisingly, a creation of Railway City Brewing Co. They are also responsible for a personal favourite, Dead Elephant IPA. The Brew Head wouldn’t be surprised if The Witty Traveller gets future Ontario Craft Beer drinkers hooked, too.
Note: The Witty Traveller will be hitting selected LCBOs shortly.
