On tap only! Olí Willy Wit, a Belgian White Ale with light and spicy citrus flavours. This unfiltered beer is brewed with a touch of coriander and orange peel, and is slightly cloudy.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2016 Very clear and pale straw pour with a thin white head. Interesting spicy orange nose. Taste is similar. Thin light body. Very drinkable, wish it has a lower ABV to help out in this regard.

DeanF (2056) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
A nicely made wit beer that contrasts with the rather average offeringa of Fernie. Highly drinkable. Good wit notes with soft hops hints. Medium finish. Could easily drink a hundred more.

maley1 (962) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2015
Cloudy yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of wheat, slight yeast, faint citrus. Taste of faint lemon citrus, grains, orange peel. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel, higher fizzy carbonation. Drinkable but not memorable.

Bottle. Light spicy easy nose. Cloudy yellow, lowish head. Tart citric yeasty base, medium light wheat malt base, dry spiciness, slightly necrotic, quick anonymous finish. needs a bit more oomph.

Reimer96 (1732) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon, oranges and some spicy coriander and Belgian yeast. Taste is bitter orange peel, tangy citrus and spicy pepper. Good thirst quencher but a bit light and lacks the complexity of a true Wit.

exeter (488) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a light gold colour with a small white head with a little lacing. The taste is everything you expect from a wit but too heavy on the citrus side of things. If you like the citrus side of a Wit then this will be right up your orchard, if not then pass it by.

Oakes (14101) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Muddy light tan colour, has a sweaty yeast character, and a fair bit of tartness. Not clean and while itís quite wheaty the spice elements arenít apparent. 33C and I was having trouble with it - not a good sign.

Lacks the complexity of the best whites but still not bad. Hints of orange and spice.

fiulijn (17494) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draught at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (W. Broadway), Vancouver
Cloudy pale blond color with compact head. Nice aroma, white bread, malt, sweet. Smooth and dry mouthfeel, a bit weak; it has a mild flavor of white bread, cornmeal, with fresh accent (touch of coriander); low bitterness.
Nicely made.

pictoman (843) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear, pale yellow with dissipating white head. Aroma of light grain bread, mild yeast and coriander. Very wheaty taste with a little cereal grain. Light body, not much of a finish. Nothing bad or off about the beer, just quite uninspired and bland.
