3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at a local IGA store. Be careful with this cork, as they seem to be a little loose and pop-away as soon as the cage is off (active carbonation not helping as well). Pours a hazy light golden colour with a white, bubbly-fizzy head, average retention and a little lacing. Lots of spices in the nose with citrus and mild sour notes, reminding me of a Belgian Ale and not so much, a witbier (similar to their Blonde I just had last week). Same for taste, but a little milder. The difference is in the finish with some wheat grains and hints of honey. So, a decent brew that does not shock with crazy character, but a little all over the place with their description and what style they really wanted to do here.

750 ml in full production with cage and cork. It doesn’t earn it. Not a bad witbier, if a little too fizzy for my liking. Soft citrusy flavors, perhaps too soft. Refreshing enough on a 90 degree May day.

Bomber. Hazy yellow pour with a huge white head. Citrus zest and coriander. Drinkable and decent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Hazy light golden with a fragile white head.
Aroma: Fairly spicy and zingy, some nice citrus peel, a little yeast, some wheat, a touch of a savoury note..., light esters, fair.
Palate: Medium body, fairly lively effervescence.
Flav.: More esters than the nose, a little floral honey, lighter spice and citrus character, faint yeast, fairly refreshing; dry with low bitterness and a somewhat vapid wheat-like finish.
Not particularly memorable...for either good or bad characteristics.

Ok witbier but a bit on the mild/bland side. Everything is there but not to the extent I would like it, ie. there could be more wheat influence in the malt and as the bottle says there is a "hint" of coriander and orange peel and that is accurate. Not bad and easy drinking but not enough character to be a memorable beer.

Very light in color, smell is not overpowering. Taste is great to start but a more then anticipated bitter end to a beer with high expectations.
If your expecting something similar to a blue moon you are mistaken. This is lighter, less wheatier flavor, and bitter.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Franky Boy, thanks! Straw color with a small white head and almost no lacing. Aroma of malt, slight orange peel and really discrete spices. Taste is fruity along with malt, lemon zest, orange peel and light coriander. Medium body. Moderate carbonation but somewhat sparkling at times. Good balance and drinkability. Not too much coriander and orange as in some other Belgian White. Surprising.

Belle couleur jaune paille, pratiquement pas voilé (ce qui est rare pour une blanche), très effervescente, avec une mousse blanche généreuse. Nez d’oranges, d’agrumes subtils, d’ananas, avec un soupçon d’épices (coriandre), de même que de sel marin. En bouche, l’orange domine avec le côté épicé qui complète. Belle acidité : il en résulte une blanche tout de même légère qui descend bien. Ce n’est pas voilé, comme je disais, et pas lourd non plus. Très tout-aller. Cheers!

Bottle. Poured a hazy golden with a good head and not much lacing as it went. Bubbles constantly rising as I drank. Got floaters half way though. Guess I did not pour carefully. Coriander and citrus in the aroma. More of the same in the flavor. It was ok.
