VincentDamon (362) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Couleur jaune paille, voilée. Mousse plutôt fugace. Nez sucré de levure, de bananes, d’oranges, plutôt intéressant quoique très typique. En bouche, une belle acidité équilibrée se présente d’emblée, puis des notes d’oranges, de bananes, de coriandre et de sel subtil apparaissent. Belle bière bien équilibrée et excellente qualité-prix (caisse mixte de 12). Doux, léger mais goûteux. Tout ce que l’on attend d’une petite blanche d’été. Cheers!

pours a hazy golden with a decent white head, retention and lacing is ok. wheat and masala spices without cinnamon. tart tropical fruits in the nose. taste is cereals, mainly wheat, soft wheat, still with a dry finish. light but very pleasant citrusy hopping. bubbly without being aggressive. quenching and good take on the weizen. would have again, maybe on tap?

On tap at the brewery. It is a slightly cloudy gold. It is thin bodied but smooth. Nice cardamom & coriander in the nose which remain present in the mouth and are joined by a solid spicy wheatiness.

My Bottom Line:
Cakey spices abound in this creative take on a Weizen, as clovey phenolics met cardamom and lush wheat.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy white.
-Eggy, sulphury angles were found in the nose, but never were bothersome.
-Flavor profile is a tad sweeter than your average Weizen. Better attenuation (and quieter spices) might make this more drinkable.
-This is quite powerful in the flavor department for a "Blanche". I’d like to know how the typical lover of the style/colour reacts after trying it.
-Carbonation is fierce, helping the spices in appearing restrained in the flavor profile. They are quite prominent in the aroma though. Perhaps too much so?
-I’m looking forward to trying this from a bottle. Might even express itself better.

On tap at the Mondial.

Lanchester (185) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2011
From 341ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw hue with very ephemeral head presence. Interesting aromatic profile for a hefeweizen, almost a clean mineral note with grainy undertones and saison ’barnyard’ character to it. A bit of spice and citrus up front in the flavor melds with a light astringency and sourness, which carries through to compliment an abrupt and grainy finish. Lively carbonation adds to a pleasant mouth-feel; I found the brew to feel ’wet’ on the palate in a sense that it makes you feel hydrated after each sip, very refreshing, and an almost slick character to it as though oats were present in the grain bill. A great thirst-quencher for the hot summer months.

Bonne odeur fraiche de coriandre, généreuse mousse et belle dentelle. Très peu d’arrière-goût acre. Bon goût frais et doux de la coriandre entre autres.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a very foggy, whitish yellow with a short lasting white head. Smell is yeast, spices. Taste is wheat, yeast, bananas, cloves, sweetbread. Some coriander, too, peppery. Finish is dry, somewhat citrusy at the end. Body is average to thick, mouthfeel is soft, light. Very good wit-weizen hybrid!

dandeman (551) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2013
Dégustée en Août 2011. Retranscription de notes de l’époque. Nez d’épices. Couleur blonde / blanche, mousse assez abondante. Gustatif: Les épices sont extrêmement présentes; cardamone, clou de girofle, poivre. Bon mélange . Bien équilibrée. Je l’appellerais surtout bière aux épices.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2011
Very pale hazy straw color with an average frothy white head with above average retention. Aroma is mostly spices, coriander, cardamom, ginger and cloves with some bread and lemon. Flavor is ginger, cardamom, coriander, cloves, bready notes and moderate banana esters and moderate sourness. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Very refreshing, but it could be improved by turning the spices down a notch.
