2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Body is a completely transparent golder yellow hue with bubbles seen steadily rising to the top. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy white head which fades to about 1/2 finger and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.
S- Nose is very mild. Grain, wheat, pale malt. Not really much to offer.
T- Taste is much the same. Bready grain. All the way through-no color or complexity to it.
M- Medium to high carbonation and somewhat bready light body.
D- This is a very simple wheat beer. It is certainly no witbier as there are no spices, herbs, or citrus. Just wheat and grain. This beer is not bad, its just bland and very boring. I canít write much more about it because there isnít anything else to it.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.75l bottle. A fantastic nice bottle. Was quite astounded when I saw this in my local supermarket (Rema1000). It pours a cloudy yellow body with a medium sized white lacing head. Anonymous nose, but some hints of wheat, yeast and coriander. Medium carbonation, and medium bodied. Quite mild taste also, but itís not bad for a Spanish wit. Sweet orange, some lemon, yeast and some mild spices.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white creamy head. Aroma is lightly lemon zest and citric notes with a pronounced wheat and straw grainy note, some soft sweet candy character. Flavor starts with a soft wheat sweet grainy note before a light tartness and a sof grassy finish. The tart lemony character continues throughout but remains soft and easy on the palate. Medium body and a soft cArbonation. Nice wittier though there isnít. Ton of depth or complexity, still very smooth and enjoyable

750ml wine bottle
I tried this beer on November 20, 2010 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a slightly hazy straw yellow
with a thin white head. The aroma was wheat malt, spices, and perfumey hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour wasnít very Belgian Wit at all. it was citrusy hops and a weak malt backbone. Enjoyable....and good tasting.

Pleasant herbal flavour with a good amount of fruit, mainly citrus, along with some spices, yeast and some light hops. Medium bodied. A nice, easy to drink Witbier.

750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a slightly cloudy bright yellow/gold with large white head that dissipates at a moderate rate but still leaves a decent head. Aroma is yeasty, lightly lemony and a little spice. Taste has quite a lemon zing with some spiciness a little orange zest and yeast. Very active carbonation. A decent wit.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Puts a lightly hazed pale gold ale in the tumbler. puffy 2 finger cap reduces but lasts and laces.
Demure nose...spicy- bit of citrus sweet malts, Lively spritzy-dry palate. Flavour is decent for a witbier...some dry biscuit malt, spicy hops and corriander, good citrus tang, clean sharp dry finish. Nice commercial witbier. Super well rounded witbier where no single element overpowers another spice, hops, orange peel and malts all in a smooth satisfying balance

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 26NO10.
App.: Hazy golden with a so-so white froth.
Aroma: Lovely yeast, earthiness, lemony coriander, wheat and wet hay, hints of esters, very pleasant for the style.
Palate: Medium-ish body, soft, elegant effervescence.
Flav.: Wet cardboard...how unfortunate, so little of the lovely note sin the nose (damm!); dry with barely any bitterness and a slightly watery, mineral, lemon biscuit finish.
So much potential in the nose made for a big letdown in the mouth.
