Yellow in color with little to no head. Cloudy looking. Listed on the board at the brewery as 5.8%, but I smelled or tasted no alchohal. Aroma of cloves and spice, which one I couldn't nail down. I didn't taste the bananna as others have. Mouthfeel was quite full and bready, with a smooth finish. This beer was very good and worth another trip to the brewery (like I need an excuse). Reminded me of La Fin Du Monde minus the bananna and crisp alchohol bite.

Picked up a 6 pack on Christmas Eve to drink while opening some gifts. A yeast aroma with a light golden hue. Typical wheat flavor with a hint of clover. I have tried a few beers from this highly respected brewery, and I have to say I have not been overly impressed. I find this to be another rather average offering. Not bad, but not exceptional.

Somewhat cloudy gold beer with a thin bright white head that disappears quickly. Sour nose of orange peel, coriander, white pepper, and yeast. Flavor is bright with orange and lemon citrus flavors followed by some typical WIT spice of coriander and grains of paradise. This is then finished with a wisp of bitterness. Refreshing, drinkable beer, but what makes it a winter ale, I have no idea--better for summer.

Thx for the bottle jsquire. Appearance was cloudy yellowish gold with white tiny creamy diminishing 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are soft spicy yeast, fruits of orange, lemon, banana and lime. Wheat backbone with no alcohol. Taste are soft citrus fruits upfront, then gives way to cracker wheat middle. Corrinder spice with yeasty finish. Palate was soft CO2 with light body, then an average slightly drying length wheat and spicy yeasty finish. Overall a strong Witbier, just a touch to yeasty.

A slightly opaque yellow body with a white head that had minimal retention and some nice lacing. Some effervescence present. Aroma had a nice mix of dough, coriander, white pepper and a bit of lemon. Flavor had a nice citrus quality. More citrus then the aroma indicated. Spice profile was nice. Pepper notes blended well with the citrus. Carbonation seemed restrained. Which i found to be good. Smooth finish.

Pours straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is of wheat, spices, banana, clove, and some light fruits. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light bod with a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty witbier.

On tap, this pours a hazy yellow color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is light and citrusy. The flavor is light with lots of citrus and hints of spices. Very well made and a nice change from other Christmas style brews.
