(Bottle) Purchased at Depanneur Peluso, Montreal. Pours a medium, white, frothy head that dissipates quickly and a greyish-gold body. The nose of this beer is one of the finest I have ever smelled on a Wit - Passion fruit, oranges, nutmeg, green tea, pumpkin and wheat. The flavours transcend rather nicely with lemon, wheat and coriander manning the frontline while a reserve of pepper stands back and observes. I really like how this is put together. Cheers!

Ok, I may be a bit objective. But I really like this White. Nice citrus aroma that changes as the keg gets older to banana and finally cooked banana. And I think this doesn’t change that it is a great beer. Most refreshing when young and a bit more warming when older.

Bottle: Poured a quite dark yellow color wit with a large head with average retention. Aroma of wheat is mix with coriander and citrus. Taste is stronger then usual witbier with lots of coriander, pepper and a citrus/grassy aspect also. Wheat is clearly identifiable and very enjoyable. Body is more full then your average witbier and also I noticed that the beer is quite hazy. I like my wit to have character and this one doesn’t miss…

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2008 The Lure:
A blond-orange gown greets the eyes, topped with ample, sticky foam. Leaping coriander seeds and slightly citrusy fruitiness coexist in harmony, as wheat and spices frolick all around.

The Festivities:
A perfect carbonation, fluffy but comfortable, sends over a very flavorful interplay of coriander, fruity yeast, leafy hops and milky sweetness. The finale is equally succulent, introducing mild herbal hop bitterness into the already very active flavor display. This is a textbook Witbier, expertly rendered.

On tap at Brouhaha.

Cloudy dark yellow until the dregs came out--left a brown poo stain on the top--must be the orange or something. Nice white foam Aroma: very fruity with sweet malt. Orange, strawberry, lychee, corriander. Dry at first, but becoming sweet near the end. A bit tangy flavour with lots of fruity goodness including obvious orange and corriander. Refreshing hops flavours and bittering come in at the end. Medium body and slightly warming. Medium carbonation. This beer is a touch too fruty and sweet but otherwise very good.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2006
Hazy reddish brown ale with a thin white head. Pleasant coriandrr and honey, very Unibroeue styled. In mouth, rich malt with coriander notes, cloves and ginger. Goes well with the Fol Épi cheese. Medium to ric bodied. Bottle 6 months old from Joanette. Excellent. Merci Marc B.!

Quevillon (2475) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
Je sais que les blanches (belge ou allemente) ont une couleur jaune très pale et voilé, mais elle était foncé, baige. Un très gros collet et une arome légèrement sucré. Goût: petit mélange de blé, d’agrume et d’épice.

Marheb (2013) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
Douces notes de clou de girofle et d’agrumes sucrés avec un voile de céréales et de blé. Agréable en bouche et aucune saveur étrange.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Citrus and pepper/coriander spiciness with light honey-like notes are joined by fair herbal hops in the nose. Opaque milky-tan coloured body with low white head that diminishes rapidly to ring. Perfumey, lavender and honey-like sweetness with orange citrus tones and some light lactic character also displays coriander and peppery spiciness in the crisply tart, dry finish. Medium-light body has a pleasant creamy texture that is offset wonderfully by the sharp, high carbonation. Aside from being slightly dark and having issues with head formation, this is a very pleasant offering and pushes witbier to the next level. Tulip glass, just below cellar temp. Bottle (Peluso, June 2005).

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2009 Rerated at Mondiale 09. Looked better than from the bottle, thought it was a very solid Wit and will bump up the 3.2 accordingly. Bottle shared with jerc. Hazy dark yellow, huge white head. Nice lemon aroma. Weird honey/wheat taste. Medium syrupy mouthfeel. Taste is almost maple syrup like. Not bad, a little unbalanced but interesting and quite drinkable. Thanks jerc.
