On tap at the Alchemist. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a thick white head. Aroma is very fruity with scents of orange, pear & apricot as well as wheat and coriander spice. Flavor follows the aroma to the tee. Moderate in the mouth with prickly carbonation on the tongue. This one was loaded with flavor and character.

Enjoyed at the brewpub Feb’09. Cloudy golden color with a smell of lemony citrus and spice. tastes of wheaty spice with a citrus background. Very nice and refreshing after a hard day on the slopes and and even better summer beer.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2006
Partly cloudy yellow body with a generous white head. Complex aroma of cheese, fruits (bananas) and some citrus. Taste is not typical for a witbier. Feels more like a citrusy hefeweizen. Fruity, wheat, citrus. Nice round and oily body. The high abv for this type of beer is very well hidden. A superior if atypical witbier. This Alchemist may not be able to turn metal into gold but turning water and cereals into good beer is impressive enough for me.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2006
En cask. Robe blanche voilée surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse et crémeuse. Arômes légers de blé. Saveurs de bananes, de levure, de blé et de pain.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Pours a cloudy light yellow body with a small white head lace. The aroma was mostly yeast with some sweet oranges and bananas. Flavor was mostly wheat and yeast with some sweetnes. I’m starting to notice that all of these brews have the same thin palate.

Strong, spicy, orange, banana, fruity aroma with wheat and doughy yeast also apparent. Hazy yellow-tan body with thin, white, fully diminishing head. Strong spiciness to the wheaty flavour. Medium body with low carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie.
