tom10101 (3672) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle (650 ml). From Canbif box, thanks Paul! Split 2-ways with Minderbinder.

Appearance: Hazy yellow with a small white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Spices forward (mostly coriander) along citrus/orange notes, floral presence, wheat... rather soft.

Taste: Moderately spicy (coriander again) with floral notes, citrus, wheat, light acidity and hints of soap.

Palate: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Coriander finish. Light but nice citrus and acidity kick at the end.

Overall: Soft and easy drinking (thanks to the light acidic presence). A tad too much coriander for my liking. Decent.

blackmetal (175) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015
mild citrus and wheaty taste. Worst part is it considers itself a Belgian Wit, which evokes an expectation it should be sharper.

pintbypint (2832) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
650ml brown bottle. Cloudy, pale yellow. Small creamy white cap with light lacing. Aroma - wheat, yeast, soft citrus. Taste - wheat, yeast, citrus. Dry, creamy body. Pretty simple wit, flavours are a bit thin, but drinkable.

UXO (697) - CANADA - APR 24, 2015
Pours cloudy pale straw with a short white head diminishing gradually to a dense cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is orange peel, bready yeast, coriander, faint banana and clove. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter, very slight tart. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry finish. (4/5) Not a bad traditional witbier, but a little unremarkable in flavour, and a touch heavy in body. I’d like this more if it were lighter, crisper, and tarter. (12/20)

reebtogi (4614) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
650ml bottle pours a hazy straw color with a small white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is lemon with hints of yeast and orange peel. Taste is a lemon tartness with a light fruity and malty sweetness finishing a little dry. Light bodied with generous carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a pretty solid witbier that is balanced nicely and tasty as well.

MunBro (729) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
A great wheat beer! Notes of lemon and bread on the nose. An almost ethereal golden pour with a thin fizzy white head. Not much lacing. Flavours of breads, cereal grains, oranges, lemons, orange and lemon zest, coriander, wheat, and some grassiness. Really well flavoured and balanced. I enjoyed this one a lot.

patricks110 (1958) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
A nice and refreshing wit. Not too much going on taste wise but a good crisp brew. Pours a bright golden straw colour with a thin white head. The nose has a bit of citrus, grass and bubblegum. Light profile with a heacvy body for the style. Refreshing and crisp.

Nice spicy coriander, light curaçao orange peel, doughy yeast nose, with some honeyed wheat, pale, toasted malt, subtle lemon acidic juice accents, and a bread dough, faint milky, lemon pie crust, subtle honey candyish lollipop note in the aroma with a medium-bodied palate and a good yeasty, milky, doughy, wheat, pale malty, spicy coriander, curaçao, bread dough, faint lemon juice character, leading towards a mild sweet milky wheat, pale maltiness, lingering coriander, candied orange peel curaçao spiciness finish. Nice refreshing belgian bière blanche.
