COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Combining Canadian and American malts with a large proportion of un-malted white winter wheat, Fiat Lux starts with a Belgian witbier inspiration. A blend of Pacific Northwest hops, a little lime peel and a dash of Indian coriander brings a bright blast of citrusy aromatic sunshine, while German Perle hops supply a nice big zap of refreshing bitterness.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Draft sample. Pours hazy golden color with an average creamy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop, spice and yeast aroma. Medium body to a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of an average duration. My expectations where met.

rougeau13 (1863) - Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Clear golden with a whitish head and heavy lacing. Aroma of flowers, spice, medicine, wheat, and citrus. Taste is sharp and herbal, yeasty, nicely hopped (very bitter for this style) and a little sweet. Medium bodied, dry, and smooth. Not bad.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Location: Draft at Bierkraft, 9/8/12

Aroma: The nose has yeast, wheat, a good amount of spice, and some banana notes
Appearance: This one pours a slightly unclear golden-orange color with a white head
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, with wheat and banana, and some spice/clove for balance
Palate: The body is medium, though it leans light, it drinks decently, with a spicy tingly, and a good finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty interesting beer, but it was not a real standout for me, just solid. I’d certainly drink it again, and many breweries could do worse then to have this as the wheat in their line-up.

rlgk (9476) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2012
Draught at Ginger Man, NYC. Golden/copper beer with a small offwhite head. Yeasty spicy aroma, coriander, pepper, maybe some cinnamon, banana notes, grassy hops, bready, caramel notes, citrus, some hoppy bitterness. Yeasty floral flavor, quite spicy, pepper, coriander, hoppy, fruity notes, some banana showing late, along with caramel and some alcohol. Spicy fruity finish.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Tap at Ginger Man. Pale golden pour. The nose is a little bit wheaty and very fruity. A light spiciness and a lot of yeast character. There is an almost blueberry-like character to the brew that is pretty unique. Peppery with the faintest hint of allspice towards the back. Understated but very delicious. An interesting take on a style that hasn’t been interesting for quite some time.

Ron (2347) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2012
With 390,490 and 590 clogged with traffic, I took the back roads thru the city and ended up at the Tap and Mallet. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose and taste of sweet fruit, wheat malt, banana, coriander and orange. This seemed much lighter than I thought it would be. Being the 1st beer, it went down very fast too. The ABV was well hidden.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at Blue Monk. Good yeasty wheat aroma, very fresh characteristics. Light coloured, carbonation bubbles are apparent. A tasty sweet, seet and spicy. Good drinkability for the style. with a drop of orange peel.
