This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale is brewed with the addition of freshly-ground coriander and Curacao orange peel. Citrus and floral aromas outshine the hops and dominate the nose of this dry and quaffable beer, while the use of raw wheat adds cloudiness and enhances its mouthfeel.

Cloudy, lemony gold pour with thin foam. Mild spicy nose. Taste was lemony and thin. A touch of coriander and pepper at the finish, but overall a mild and disappointing experience. On tap at the Irish Times pub in Victoria, BC.

Boutip (5695) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of coriander and wheat malt are pretty dominant. Taste is also heavy on the coriander notes with some great wheat malt notes and light residual sugar notes. Body is pretty full with good carbonation. Pretty enjoyable with nice dose of coriander but carbonation could be slightly more pronounced.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Straw, opalescent color and white, dissipating head. Aromas are very subtle, a bit clovy, a bit yeasty, a bit citrusy and a bit hoppy. There is some orange but hidden. Well balanced but could be more intense. Tastes lemony, with clovy finish and lemony-bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, low body. Some kind of oily feeling. Overall a bit too subtle flavors, but balanced, very refreshing.

PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do tulipa. Barwa słomkowa, mocno opalizująca, piana jasna, zanikająca. Aromaty dość delikatne, nieco goździkowe, nieco drożdżowe, nieco cytrusowe i chmielowe. W tle ukryta jest pomarańcza. Fajnie to wszystko zbalansowane, ale wg. mnie mogło by być intensywniej. W smaku cytrynowe, z goździkowym zakończeniem i cytrynowo-goryczkowym posmakiem. Średnie nasycenie, niskie, nieco oleiste odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując nieco zbyt delikatne, ale fajnie zbalansowane, bardzo orzeźwiające.

Bottle. Hazy, light pale yellow pour with a white head. Some soft citrus, a little yeast and bread, bubblegum. Pretty dry, nicely balanced. Quite a nice wit.

Drinking from a 650 cl bottle. Nice citrus aroma, hints of oranges, wheat, tropical fruits. The unclear pale yellow beer has a medium white head. In the taste also tropical fruits, grainy as you would expect, witbier as you always would want it to be. High carbonated.

AgentAle (1406) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
Aroma is light grains, citrus, and clove. Taste is pale grains and honey , finishes with slight bitterness. Appearance is a cloudy gold body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly. Pretty disappointing, nothing of particular significance here.
