Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle from Liquor Depot, Banff. It pours hazy pale yellow, with a thin, quickly dissipating white film. The nose is wheat, banana, coconut water, spice, clover, lemon zest and herbal notes. The taste is wheat, spice, toast, banana, light toasted coconut, lemon pith and dough, with a very dry finish. Light-medium body and low, fizzy carbonation. Quite watery and generally lacking in flavour. Good idea, badly executed.

Murky dark orange with rapidly dissipating thin bubbly head. Aroma of good wit-y things - banana, orange, a bit of yeast. Coconut is subtle, but it is there, as a bit of an undercurrent. Itís a little out of place though. The base beer, while thin and a bit watery, is bright, flavourful, and refreshing.

Alright for some reason I forgot this was a coconut wit, I just started drinking thinking it was a Dead Frog wit. Right after the first sip i pondered, "Why is there a coconut flavour in this?" and took a look-see at the bottle. So yeah itís there. Not in the aroma, but in the taste. Maybe I just noticed it because Iím missing my past life in Southeast Asia.

The wit itself feels quite acidic, which is not something I enjoy much in a beer, but the coconut balances it somewhat. I think it was a good idea, executed well enough.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle from Point Grey, Vancouver
Cloudy pale bond color with a greenish hue, and small head. Light aroma of roasted coconut, coconut butter and mint, then some feet. Light body, dry mouthfeel, with a pleasant coconut ice cream flavor, combined with some crispness and light lemon. Strange but drinkable.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy gold with medium head. Some lace. Mild banana aroma. Taste includes banana, clove and I swear orange peel. Mild hops. Didnít perceive any coconut in the taste. Seemed pretty much straightforward witbier flavored to me.

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
650ml bomber pours a pale golden orange color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild spices and yeast. Taste is light malty sweetness with some citrus and spice with a mild bitter finish. Light body and decent carbonation. Not getting any coconut notes at all. Ok beer, but nothing special.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2012
Clear pale yellow, thin white head. Spicy citrus wit aroma. Light citrusy spicy malt taste, coriander stands out. I guess that faint, strange taste that I canít identify is supposed to be toasted coconut. Softly carbed, low hopped. Thin odd finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

(Draft) Sampled at the 2011 Great Canadian Beer Festival on September 9, 2011. T-H-R-E-E W-O-R-D-S: AWFUL WATERY GROSSNESS!

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2012
Hazy very dull beige and a little bit of frothy head. Light coriander and vague malts on the nose. Vaguely malt-accented, with light vague fruitiness and light spiciness. Not really getting the toasted coconut.

Nose of wheat lemon coriander orange and coconut. Natural interesting. Hazy yellow orange pour nice white head. Flavor initially wheat quenching clean orange coriander lemon and a fresh coconut note oin the finish. Refreshing and unique.
