On tap @ the brewpub. Cloudy light yellow, dense white head that retains beautifully. Aroma is very sweaty, and sulphuric-- boiled eggs big time! Thankfully the palate is more pleasing, with wheat and orange and coriander notes, and a dry finish. Whatís with the aroma-- dirty lines?

Hazy straw with a short fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, clove and coriander. Lots of honey, lemon and floral notes. Itís a nice unique wit, perfect on a summer day.

I love this bar, but the only notes I have are the numbers, which is unfortunate....

Pours a pale yellow colour like straw, with a big frothy white head that dissipates and it is slightly hazy. Aroma is of honey, spruce hops, light citrus notes and some slight grain malts. Taste is quite sweet but mixes well with the hops and honey to create a unique but pleasing flavour. Lively carbonation, light body and thin mouth feel. Overall a very good summer beer.

2010 edition, bottle. Pours a very nice looking straw color with a lasting white head. Very hazy looking body. Aromas of honey and fresh thistle bushes. Some coconut in there too I think. Taste is very crisp and clean. Plenty of honey and more coconut. Very refreshing. Fairly full bodied for a wit. Very well balanced, nice level of carbonation. Long thistle like aftertaste with hints of honey. This is the best batch in years.

Crel (37) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 22, 2009
A hazy yellowish color with nice white head that diminishes quickly. Light citrus nose, with cool, clean start, and a crisp finish that develops in complexity between sips. A great hot day beer, very refreshing, and light alcohol.

A hazy peach, with a big froth that calmed down to form a crown of white lace. Szechuan and lemon pepper gave it a citrus and spicy nose, with the added fruityness of orange peel. Very enjoyable. The bustling carbonation really brought out the mix of flavors well. Coriander, even a little citrus basil, along with tangerines and curacao. Body was just perfect for me, it had a bit more roundness and body than a lot of Wits Iíve had before. I really liked it.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
Bright but hazy yellow colour with a thick frothy, fizzy, and rocky but mostly diminishing white head. Great citrus, flowery, banana, and lightly spicy aroma. Floral and herbal flavours plus a lightly fruity, bitter, and phenolic finish. Light to medium bodied and refreshing palate. A fascinating and contemplative beer. Thanks Dave.

Refreshing orange coriander. Other citrus flavors - complex. Carbonation on high side, aggressive. Good wheat beer, good summer choice. Medium mouthfeel. Pale yellow

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Outstanding Dave. This is a very different wit than any Iíve had. The colour is a hazy but very bright yellow and the nose is flowery and citrusy. The flavour and mouthfeel are just like the aroma. I got lemon and flowers in the taste. This is an excellent wit.
