To commemmorate the 65th anniversary of liberation of The Netherlands by Canadian troops, this special beer was commissioned by the Dutch embassy. A collaborative effort with De Koningshoeven brewery, this cloudy wheat beer uses organic juniper berries and maple syrup as a way to feature traditional ingredients from both countries.

garthicus (2912) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 5, 2010
Draft @ Beer Bistro. Appearance: Lemon yellow, very cloudy with a nice White head. Aroma: slightly hopped, a little yeast, quite a good amount of wheat and a lemon zest. Flavour: metallic lemon at first opening into a yeasty, refreshing brew. Light lemon & yeast finish. Not bad.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
A hazed golden wit with a thick creamy white head. In aroma, a classic cloves and bananas with light maple cream and orange pulp. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt, bananas and cloves, weizen like, not bad. Medium bodied. Dryish. Bottle from brewery, courtesy of Inertiaboy, shared with Diogene, Mike H. and GRM.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Hazy beige with a medium off-white head showing good retention. Aroma is citrus, wheat and coriander. Flavor is wheat, bread, lots of cloves esters and minimal wooden notes. Closer to a german weizen then a belgian wit.

Picked this up from the brewery. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a white head and nice retention. Aroma coriander, orange and yeast. Taste is a really nice balance of citrus and yeast. This is a very good Witbier, one of the better ones that I’ve had from this side of the pond and definitely a great Ontario beer. Hopefully this will be an annual brew. Good job Beau’s!

probstblueribbon (3724) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2010
750 ml bottle from brewery, shared by Steve G. (thanks!), served fairly cold in a goblet. 19MA10.

App.: Extremely cloudy dirty golden with a small white head. Aroma: Lots of banana esters, dirty, yeast, very earthy coriander, no detectable juniper or maple... Palate: Medium-ish body and moderate effervescence. Flav.: Even more esters, still lots of yeast, a bit of dirty/earthy coriander, minerals; dry with low bitterness.

Not awesome, but I am glad to taste this collaborative brew. I hope that more Canadian brewers follow suit by collaborating with established foreign craft beer breweries.
