This is a Belgian style wheat beer brewed in Canada. Sounds interesting, true. Problem is that Belgians make really great beers and this task was obviously too much to handle for our Canadian friends. Falls short in every aspect, except the price. Price is competitive to Belgian beers. Ugh. At least something, right? Right... Anyway, let’s leave the Belgian style to Belgians.

Bottle, Ale House Chelmsford, thanks to James. Really no notes of a Belgian wit ale at all. Some slight coriander but all the elements of macro brewing. I’m sure at one point this beer was good but now it’s not.

Citrus, floral, clove. Creamy mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation. Pleasant

355ml can as "Belgian Moon". Cloudy yellow, white head which dies fast. Nose has orange peels. Taste - orange peel, wheat, yeast. A little orange peel at the end and pretty dry. Light body. Overall, about what I expected - a drinkable but unexciting wit.

Bottiglia da 0,33. Schiuma corposa e persistente. Colore oro opaco. Carbonatura abbondante. Aroma deciso e vagamente acidulo. Gusto erbaceo con sentori di fieno ed agrumi. Finale lungo ed aspro. Consiglio 6/10

When it is all said and done this is a pretty solid wheat beer. It has great color and taste it does lack in the aroma thou. Overall the combination of mild hops and the spice has a nice balance. I would recommend it to anyone

Cerveza muy fresca, con poco gas. Es de trigo pero tiene muy poco sabor, tiene mejor aroma de lo que muestra después.

KoRoBeNiKi (137) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Aroma of citrus, light spice, and some sweet fruit. Appearance is clear with a white head. The head is pretty but the beer itself is not. Taste has a good amount of orange peel/orange flavor. Light bitter finish. It might not be an excellent beer but it’s serviceable and way better than most of the stuff you find in your average pub in NYC. Re-edited whoops.

Wanderings878 (78) - ITALY - JAN 12, 2016
Bottiglia. Colore giallo torbido, poca schiuma bianca di breve persistenza. Aroma citrico e lieviti in prevalenza. Gusto equilibrato che non esaspera il dolce, tantomeno l’amaro, dove riemergono le note citriche; si evince anche la nota speziata. Carbonatazione medio / bassa, birra fresca e godibile anche se per nulla particolare o da ricordare, ma dissetante.
