Bottle LCBO, pours very cloudy opaque, small lingering white head. Aroma is faint hint of orange peel not very noticeable though as I thought before buying it would be, this is on par with other wheat beers. It is a little more bitter than Hoegarrden but very similar overall to that. sort of a small bitter finish. Overall not bad.

bottle. Pouted hazy yellow with a thin white head. Citrusy orange aroma with coriander and spices. Body is light with crisp carbonation, not too bitter. Citrus wheat flavour with anise and peppery spice.

Not what I was hoping for when iím looking to enjoy a belgian witbier. I found the orange somewhat overpowering, and not in a pleasaent way (almost like biting into a peel and chewing). Color was nice though, aroma was light and fragrant as well. A little over carbonated tasting as well. Overall, not something I would purchase again.

Pours straw, medium head. Aroma of straw and light orange. Taste is much the same, very faint orange flavour, expected more ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a great witbier, but passable. Didnít get a lot of orange (or anise) from this. Pretty subtle. Sweet wheat is present but even that is not packing a punch. Stick with Hoegaarden.

A solid Weisse beer. Pours yellow with nice citrus aromas. Flavors are orange, anise and some coriander. Refreshing.

Helsdon (111) - Toronto, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Tries this beer last year and remember I like it, even though I apparently didnít rate it. Pours a cloudy blond, just like a good wit, with a finger of fluffy white head. The coriander comes though on the nose, with a little skunk in the soft wheaty malt. The taste is all about the coriander and that "tiny bit of anise" is defiantly there. Iím missing a lot of the orange, but that doesnít really matter. Getting a hint of vanilla, and a little skunk, but itís not a bad thing. (Oddly enough.) Solid wit, and unique enough to get my approval.

ljthiessen (307) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with a dense white head. Aromas of orange and coriander with a touch of yeast. Flavour is sweet with mostly orange and coriander, with some yeast and a hint of anise. A nice flavourful wit, refreshing.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottled sample. Pale gold with a bit of haze and fizzy carbonation. Aromas are coriander and soap heavy, with a bit of banana in the background. A bit hefeweizen like in the mouth with vanilla and banana elements mixing with the herbal and spice notes. Slightly astringent finish with a mineral-thin body. Not bad overall, but the mouthfeel could be improved.

On tap at the Amsterdam Brewhouse, on the Toronto waterfront. Bright straw with a ring of white head; aroma of coriander and some faint orange; floury body with a subtle orange taste; and a very dry finish.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
A clean and fruity hefe with tons of fruity notes. Pours a hazy, foamy golden mess with a ton of head. The nose is quite sweet and fruity with light spiced notes and splashes of citrus fruits. Mild mannered flavour profile with light fruity esters. Well balanced but a tad boring.
