2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. It’s a little out of place though. The base beer, while thin and a bit watery, is bright, flavourful, and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 it’s there. Not in the aroma, but in the taste. Maybe I just noticed it because I’m 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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. Cloudy gold with medium head. Some lace. Mild banana aroma. Taste includes banana, clove and I swear orange peel. Mild hops. Didn’t perceive any coconut in the taste. Seemed pretty much straightforward witbier flavored to me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 can’t identify is supposed to be toasted coconut. Softly carbed, low hopped. Thin odd finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

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.
