[5905-20131010] Growler. Oregano herby aroma. Murky, pale orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Soapy grainy flavour has a bit of wheaty fruit grain throughout and a soft finish. Medium body. Average, definitely emulates Rickard’s White. (6/3/6/4/13) 3.2

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 mL bottle. Hazy peach nectar with a thin cap of white head. Nose is juicy with grainy malt, orange, coriander, apricot and spicy Noble hops. Slightly sweet with balancing spiciness, creamy texture despite being on the lower end of the carbonation range. Light bodied and refreshing. A sort of American/Belgian Wheat/Wit hybrid, very nice with my curried chicken. Great flavor, but I’d love a touch more carb and some head retention.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
De couleur assez foncée, rappelant une weizen et sa couleur presque brune, avec un film de mousse en surface. Le nez est fruité, clémentines et baies au premier plan. La bouche est passablement aqueuse, avec des malts blonds qui dominent. Elle demeure assez savoureuse, dans les tons pour une wit, avec une belle effervescence. Un effort honnête mais qui manque de tonus.

On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. A cloudy copper gold with a thick foamy head. Tons of coriander in the aroma. Very smooth & creamy in the mouthfeel. Lots of spice, witbier like. Wheaty spicy goodness.

On tap at Lancaster smokehouse. Very cloudy orange with zero head. Mild wheat and citrus aroma. What and a huge orange taste. Quite sweet. Light spiciness. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Orange in colour with plenty of haze and medium carbonation. Very mild aromas of orange peel and grain. Very odd flavor of fresh milled malted barley, vanilla, and muted citrus. Medium bodied. Outside of the orange elements, it’s not terribly wit like. Drank ok overall, but an odd duck.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice white. Coriander, some citrus and good balance. Finishes with light sweetness, some sourness. Pours cloudy golden with great head and lacing. It’s always great when I actually enjoy a beer from a style I don’t ordinarily like. Sampled at the Winterbrewed festival in Ottawa.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My growler shared with GregClow, mds, jerc & mabel. Pours a murky orange with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma and flavour are quite grainy and wheaty along with some citrus -- oranges mainly -- and light spices. Mild bitter finish. Average bodied. It’s O.K. It’s a lot like Rickards White/Blue Moon, it must be intentional.

Very hazy, you can’t even see through it. Very orange. Almost looks like a pop. Fruity nose. Very fruity. Almost shandy like. It’s good but much more fruit than beer taste. My Dad would rally like this. Actually it’s very refreshing. Mor I drink the more I like. This is the first one I want seconds of.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013-10-10. Dirty looking muddy pastel yellow body with a modest white head. Aroma is mild, lightly spicey wheaty aroma. 6+ Flavour has similar wheaty character with mild sweet citrusy touches. Mild bitterness throughout. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent but just okay - seems to be emulating Rickard’s White/Blue Moon style of wheat beer? Growler from the brewery shared by Blankboy.
