4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The whitest wit I have ever seen. Very pale golden pour with a lot of carbonation and thick white head. Very strong citrus scent, exactly what I expect from the style. Very strong mixed and spicy taste. Spicy as in mixed spices not as in "hot" My only compliant is a high level of carbonation, almost champagne like. I haven’t worded it well enough yet, but man I am loving this. I love wits during the summer and this is one of the best wit’s I have had. This is amazing.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy honeyed amber. Mountainous white foam with spacious bubbles. Stunning aroma of lemon, herbs, honeydew, and coriander. Light hints of dough and sweet orange peels. Phenolic, banana esters and airiness highlight the gorgeous hop undertones. Extremely bright and uplifting. Fluffy carbonation with lots of effervescence. Mellow and elegant phenolic notes in the flavor. Honeydew and herbal notes come on strong before the doughy pale malts appear. Noble hops add a touch of juicy sweetness at the back of the throat, countering the esters and agitating the softly spicy hops. Scrubbing effervescence dries out the finish before a late coriander dusting and spicy hop flourish. Endless straw, coriander and waxy yeast flavors accompany the tongue-tickling esters and airy, phenolic belches. Immensely appetizing, and, without question, one of most elegant witbiers on the face of the planet. You’re a saint, Rasta!

An amazing, out of this world witbier! Bright, yeasty herbal (subtle coriander) aroma. Ton of lemongrass balanced by harvested-yesterday wheat. Also notes of rye, thyme, dried pear and oats. Mellow, soft grain, semi-dry finish.

500ml bottle. pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head that seems to last forever and leaves nice lacing. aroma is fresh coriander, lemons and oranges, and lots of spices. flavour is loaded with citrus, coriander and cloves. mouthfeel is light but not too light, and very effervescent. this has to be the most flavourful witbier i have ever had. this high rating is a result of this beer’s excellence within its style.

I tried this beer on June 29, 2011 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a cloudy golden yellow with a generous white cap that quicky faded into a surface film. The aroma was wheat malt, light fruit, and floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was wheat malt, coriander, citrus and had a slight bitter finish. An extremely well done witbier!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2004 Re-rate: With full-carbonation, I bumped up the scores for appearance, mouthfeel and overall impression. New sample pours a generous white head atop a deep dark golden body. Head lasts nicely and eventually recedes to cover. Good carbonation. Refreshing, lively mouthfeel.
Original rating 9-3-9-2-16=3.9: Citrus - lemon and orange, coriander, yeast aromas. Deep dark golden honey colour with nice white head that dissipates rather quickly. Flavour is incredible sweet and tart interplay wonderfully - orange, lemon, apple, pear, coriander, chamomile, bready yeast, biscuit, fresh cut straw. Flavour builds nicely as you drink. Fairly full mouthfeel but carbonation is a bit low. I'm hoping the next bottle will have stronger carbonation as the aromas and flavour on this one are absolutely fantastic. Bottle.

This is easily the best wit I've had out of the bottle. It's surprisingly orange, but the haze is still there. Great aromas of orange, yeast, and spices. The flavors get even more complex, with notes of lemon, coriander, ginger, and black pepper. It comes back to earth a bit on the palate, as it seems too carbonated and lacks the smoothness that I tend to associate with this style. Still, this is one hell of a beer. Big Time thanks to Lubiere for this one!

Very complex, spicy aroma: gingerbread, baking spices. Flavor is similarly spicy, but not totally dominated - more ginger, nutmeg, clove. Delicious. Light yet full of character.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Bière jaune pâle, voilée, très effervescente, surmontée d’une généreuse mousse blanche immaculé. Le nez est surtout fruité, agrumes (oranges et citrons surtout) et fruits tropicaux (mangues, papayes, bananes…), quelques arômes de blé, de pain et de levure également, aussi des effluves épicés et herbacés. En bouche, c’est bien pétillant, mais mince au palais. Au goût, ça se démarque, c’est d’une complexité au-dessus de la moyenne pour une blanche. Agrumes (pas seulement orange, mais aussi pamplemousse et citron), épices (pas seulement coriandre, mais aussi muscade, gingembre, camomille…), fruits tropicaux (ananas, banane…), houblon floral, finale légèrement amère. À la fois légère et goûteuse, rafraichissante, digne d’une excellente blanche.
