Bottle brown, 330 ml, 12.3 P
Appearance: Pours cloudy, lemony to honey like in colour, reminding water mixed with honey and lemon juice, carbonation of the body is intensive but mild, very natural like effervescence, hed is snowy white, big, slowly decreasing to small, firm and lasting due to a very good saturation, there is quite nice lacing.
Aroma: Very fresh and lively aroma of coriander, spear mint, hints of white bread skin, unbaked dough, pastry, batter, vanilla, grains, especially whaet and gentle maltyness at the background, lime, peach, clementine, pumpkin, interesting and sophisticated cereal grains, alcohol is well hidden, very mild and pleasant with notes of whipped cream, gentle notes of powder sugar, banana and bubble gum but very natural and positive with unpasteurised accents. Clearly a good witbier.
Flavour: Front is soft and refreshing than comes some upfront sweetness, later on distinct accidity on palate, many interesting aromatic fruits, most of all peach, orange, nice tart, lemon and lime, banana and nice accents of grains especially wheat covering barley at the background, whipped cream, perfume hops, well rounded and balanced taste, white bread skin is very expressive and explicitly pronounced, gentle sweetness and stickyness from sugary - sweet accents balancing the taste, notes of dough, batter, cereal grains, bubble gum, aromatic flowery - hoppy bose.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is quite mild but with good saturation, carbonation on palate is quite lively, finish feel is mineral and very long with lingering aromatic spicy - flowery nose. It’s a good Witbier not as Spice/Herb/Vegetable as such in my opinion.

Orangy tan pour with a really thick buubly head. The head had no cling to it though. Strong citrus scent. A bit lemoney and spicey. A really nice taste. A bit more tart and flavourful then most Wit’s I have had. Wish I could get this here more often.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow and has a white head. Aroma has citrus, hops, candy, sweetnes and yeast. Flavor is quite thin and watery. Has citrus, hops and marmalade. There is some strange touch to this brew that I can´t put the finger on...

probstblueribbon (3717) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2008
330 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Cloudy golden, small white foam. Aroma: A really nice, inviting floral, perfumed sweetness, hard to say what the herbs are, but maybe lavender?, sort of fruity (white grapes and tropical fruits), a bit of yeast, apricot and light berries, a touch of mandarin orange. Palate: Medium body and fairly full effervescence with some sharp bubbles. Flav.: Plenty of the perfumed, floral notes, lots of nice apricot and berry fruits, light yeast, slightly grassy, some wheat, a bit of honey; dry with no bitterness and lingering flower petals with some sweet orange notes.

A nice treat. Unique and enjoyable.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 Pours a cloudy yellow with a small foamy white head. Aroma of herbs, fruit, yeast, clove, and wheat. Flavour similar with a hint of mint, and quite spicy. The aftertaste was sweet. It went down smooth but was intense at the same time.
