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.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Draft... Clear light-yellow ale with a huge, pillowy white head. Great retention. The nose provides huge coriander and orange peel plus a hint of pepper. Medium-bodied and moderately creamy with tingly carbonation. Sweet, spicy, herbal flavor. Finishes bittersweet and crammed with seemingly every single spice-rack component that rubs me the wrong way. I hate wits and the Boston Red Sox.

Sammy (8354) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - 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.
