Can from the brewery. Pale golden body with a light haze and a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of coriander, pear, spices and orange pith. Flavour of bread, grass and lemon. Medium body with a frothy texture. Light fizz. Refreshing and subtle.

sudomorph (1043) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
16oz can. Pours a slightly pale orange with a finger of white head that thins to a thick film. Mild streaming carbonation. Aroma has nice notes of orange citrus, Belgian yeast, slight candy sugar, mild spice, and faint bubble gum. Taste is balanced. Smooth orange citrus, Belgian yeast, bubble gum, very slight candy sugar, and a touch of spice at the end. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Clear and refreshing in the mouth with a soft carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a great summer beer. Mild orange citrus mixed with Belgian wit flavours of spice, candy sugar, bubblegum, and a dry finish.

Fruity aroma with citrus and spice. Cloudy amber colour. Citrus front with notes of lemon peel and orange with a slightly sweet finish. Light body with medium combination. A very pleasant and refreshing beer.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Hazy straw, almost golden color. Weak 2 finger head lasting around 2 minutes with average legs but strong bubble activity. Aromas and flavors of sweet citrus, a bit orangey, smoky grains and herbal spices. Great authentic subtle orange taste that is not too intense but faintly vinous. Light body with prickly carbonation. Short and but well intensified and balanced finish, leaving a pleasant slightly spicy mouth coat at the end. Overall : Good craft being very flavorful with some good freshness and intensity.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2015
Too bad this beer mentions that there’s anise... I don’t smell it nor taste it. However other than that this seems like a bread and butter wit... Lots of citrus and orange peel with the spicy coriander to compliment... Light and easy to drink but reminds you of Drinking an alcoholic orange... Imo like the wit style should be.

cmacklin (708) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
473ml can. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange with a medium, short lived white head. Aroma of orange, wheat and coriander. Sweet flavour of orange, wheat and yeast with a dry, bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2015
Can, drank from the can. Overall impression was "meh" - I so enjoyed the last Amsterdam brew I had (Boneshaker IPA) that this was a letdown. Not much orange, just a flat-ish middle of the road weiss that wasn’t terribly distinctive. Not a bad beer, just nothing special. I might have been more impressed had I been able to pour it and get a better idea of the aroma...should probably try another before passing final judgement.

deyholla (9811) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Can. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet citrus with a decent amount of earthy wheat and a hint of anise. Flavor has more sweet wheat with hints of anise and very sweet citrus.

lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Version "weisse", donc de style allemand. Liquide jaune doré presque parfaitement limpide, avec une mousse rare. Le nez est de bananes, de paille et d’épices diverses. En bouche on joue dans les mêmes tons, avec les fruits jaunes et les oranges sucrées qui éclatent d’abord, puis des céréales blondes dans une longue vague qui nous amène à une finale signée de la levure allemande typique. Un tout petit peu aqueuse. Bel exemple de ce style, mais qui ne détonne pas du reste.
