COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with this naturally pure Abitibi Esker water, Mons Abbey Witte is brewed with passion and devotion to time-honored Belgian tradition from a blend of malted and unmalted wheat infused with Styrian Golding hops, Hallertau Hersbrucker, and a hint of coriander and orange peel for a discrete citrusy bouquet.

Quevillon (2748) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
750 ml bottle as the 2015 Christmas gift. Hazy light yellow, little head. Light wheat malt aroma, a bit of citrus spiciness. Not a strong citrus wheat taste, fairly dry, a juicy finish. Well I’m happy I did not pay for this!

Slightly hazed light straw yellow pour, generous white head that did not last long unfortunately, left a little lace. Nice witbier aroma, lemon citrus, clove, banana. Fresh and light on the tongue. Nice beer, good for the style.

pumpkinhead2 (676) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Bière jaune assez pâle, moyennement voilée, effervescence soutenue, et surmontée d’un col blanc moyennement large, peu dense, grosses bulles, et qui se réduit tout de même assez rapidement avant de se stabiliser davantage à quelques millimètres du liquide. Arômes de pain frais, blé, pâtisserie et sucre brut, avec pas mal de levure belge typiquement witbier, pointe d’orange, et trame de fond herbacé, foin, coriandre… Aussi, effluves assez floral et aromatique, présence d’épices (clou de girofle, gingembre…). Nez tout de même fort intéressant, complexité et intensité bien élevée. En bouche, pétillement élevé sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais, c’est bien moelleux et velouté. Au goût, pain frais, blé et sucre brut, avec levure belge et bonne dose d’épices (coriandre, clou de girofle, camomille, gingembre, poivre, piment de la Jamaïque…). Saveur d’orange en arrière-plan, aucun goût véritablement houblonné, amertume minimale voire inexistante. Bière principalement sucrée et épicée, très bonne intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles, intensité très élevée en bouche, mais complexité plutôt moyenne. Ça reste tout de même assez standard pour une blanche, mais je la trouve personnellement rudement bonne et très bien réussie. Très bonne bière!

mathieuc (2663) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of coriander and soft wheat. Taste is a little sweet, wheat-y and of coriander. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Overall a middle-of-the-road witbier.

Gethinbeer (2436) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Very clear pale golden pour with a thin quickly dissipating lace. Sweet citrus fruit aroma. Slight spiced hints. Refreshing, tangy beer with hints of orange and citrus. Slightly spiced finish. Nice beer.

JStax (4299) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Corked and caged 750 ml bottle shared. Pours a hazed gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is light doughy notes with some citrus zest coming through as well. The taste is mostly sweet and bready. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Freaky_tiki (894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Pours apple juice into the glass. A cap of thin foam appears on top that flees quicker than Stephen Harper’s hairline (that is a toupee, right?). The apple juice appears again, this time in the flavour profile where I get: crisp red apples, candied yeast, vague pepper spices, breakfast orange juice & a few handfuls of wheat. Pretty good on a hot August evening after a long bike ride.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a decent transparency about it to allow a slight carbonation to be seen rising into a one finger white foamy head. Once the head dissipated and in fact, that head barely lasted twenty seconds, boy did that fade fast, there was some light stringy speckled lacing roaming all over the glass. The smell had a zesty lemon, clove, banana esters combined and coming through in a sweet sort of way. The taste took those flavors and combined nicely. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across fairly sessionable. The carbonation was there and decent as a witbier and good to me. Overall, good witbier I’d have again if I could get it.

Hazy light yellow, huge white head. Big aroma of malted wheat with subtle lemon zest, and some yeast. The finish is sweet, and tastes like a pina coloada. Lots of sweet pineapple and apple pie flavors, quite weird.

Bottle at La Foire Gourmande in Ville Marie Quebec. Hazy golden pour, big frothy white head. Aroma of coriander, lemon, and wheat. Good carb, mouth feel is a little bloated. More lemon, and a touch of spices in the finish. Coriander being the most dominant. A little too much malted wheat, emparting a touch of butter in the finish.

Bière jaune, voilée et bien mousseuse. Le nez offre ce qu’une bonne blanche belge présente habituellement (aucune surprise / aucune déception). En bouche, orange et coriandre confirment leur présence sur une trame à la fois légère et lourde (la texture est mince, la levure est corpulente). Comme sa soeur jumelle la Mons blanche, cette bière est une belle interprétation d’une Witbier qui ne réécrira toutefois pas l’histoire.

Bière jaune paille modérément mousseuse et voilée. Le nez nous permet d’anticiper des saveurs épicées et axées sur les agrumes. La thématique belge s’expime admirablement bien en bouche – et de façon pétillante. La coriandre est présente et elle met en valeur les agrumes (notamment le citron et l’orange). Une belle blanche estivale sans complexe qui s’inspire des classiques sans les surpasser.
