Boutip (4699) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2011
Bottle: Poured a yellow color ale with white haze and a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of lavender and coriander with refreshing wheat malt and light orange peel notes. Taste is also a refreshing and complex mix of lavender and coriander with notes of orange peel with some super solid wheat malt. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very well brewed with great drinkability and some very nice complexity.

SlovakSniper (3105) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2011
(50 cl) Le liquide a une robe légèrement dorée et finement embrouillée. La mousse est fugace. Au nez, belle présence de céréales douces avec un parfum bien dosé de lavande et de fleurs. Des épices chatouillent les narines. Les saveurs rappellent les arômes avec des fleurs succulentes et légèrement sucrées. En bouche, le liquide est tout en finesse mais bien structuré avec un pétillement nerveux, porteur de saveurs rafraîchissantes et douces. La finale se fait sur des notes florales et épicées qui permettent l’éclosion d’une timide amertume.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
Hazy blond, thin head. The aroma has a lot of lavender and some wheat, and yeastiness too. Spicy and with lots of lavender on the palate. Good balance and fresh-tasting.

rodenbach99 (3138) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011
Bouteille de 500ml. Bière jaune dorée avec une mousse blanche. Les arômes sont bien agréables avec des notes florales, de la lavande (bien sur) citron, épices et de blé (discret). La bouche a une bel équilibre entre les fleurs et les agrumes. Le corps est mince mais très rafraichissant. Un produit d’été par excellence et une belle découverte qu’est la lavande. Malheureusement à 5,99$ le prix est prohibitif.

AlainG (1180) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2011
Bière trouble d’un blond peu commun avec un épais col mousseux. De belles odeurs de blé, de levure, de pomme, de fleurs et d’épices en émanent. Goût surprenant, semblable aux odeurs, auxquels s’ajoutent des pointes acides d’agrumes. La lavande fait honneur à son titre sans voler la vedette, pour laisser une légère amertume en finale. Le parfum annoncé apporte une touche intéressante, mais si on tient compte que c’est une blanche, on reste un peu sur notre faim. (91-031011)

500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 26JN11. Following a cask festival. Overkill, says my liver.

App.: Cloudy golden with a decent dirty white froth. Aroma: Quite bright, floral, perfumed, spicy, peppery, some earthy coriander, grain/cereal, lots of floral notes, light grape-like fruitiness, touches of bitter green herbals, interesting. Palate: Medium-ish body, with lively effervescence. Flav.: Wheat, yeast, dough, earthy coriander, floral perfumed top notes, lemony, a decent Wit with some added flowery punch; dry with little bitterness and a toasted wheat, coriander, citrus, lightly floral finish.

A nice take on a Wit.
