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.

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.

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.

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 (9757) - 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.

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.

Bamsen78 (4810) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2015
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours hazy straw with small white head. Mild aroma of grain and herbs, with light fruity notes. Mild, sweetish, estery, malty and fruity flavour. Notes of hops and coriander. Rough and estery aftertaste with mild peppery notes. Okay but nothing very impressive.

Can from the LCBO. A good down the middle weiss, tasty and well made. The "orange is not overly apparent , but it is there I prefer to drink local beer so good to have this one back for summer

ENG: 473ml can from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Yellow, opalescent color with small, white head. Aromas of wheat, cloves and coriander with subtle orange notes. Tastes mostly wheaty, and again coriander notes too. Quite uniform flavor, nothing popping out too much. Clovy/coriander aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation, low to medium body. Overall quite refreshing summer beer, nothing special, just an easy-drinking wheat brew for hot days (but personally for this purpose I would pick up some good Pilsener instead).

PL: Puszka 473ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa żółta, opalizująca, piana biała, niewielka. Aromaty pszeniczne, goździki, kolendra, delikatne nuty pomarańczowe. W smaku głównie pszenica, ponownie kolendra. Zasadniczo dość jednolite - zarówno aromaty jak i smaki są podobne. Nic szczególnie mocno się nie wybija. W posmaku goździki / kolendra. Niskie do średniego nasycenie, niskie do średniego odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując nieźle orzeźwiające letnie piwo, jednak bez szału - po prostu dobre piwo (choć osobiście na lato w celu ukojenia pragnienia wybrał bym pewnie jakiegoś dobrego Pilsnera).
