Muddy light tan colour, has a sweaty yeast character, and a fair bit of tartness. Not clean and while it’s quite wheaty the spice elements aren’t 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 (14322) - 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 (442) - 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.

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Pours fairly cloudy yellow with a thin white head and little to no lace. Aroma is honey like sweetness, orange, and bready wheat. Flavour is sweet honey malts, some zesty orange, wheat and overall not very Belgian but easy drinking.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color ale with white hues and a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coriander and orange peel with some lightly sweet wheat malt notes. Taste is also dominated by coriander and orange peel with some lightly sweet wheat malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. This is a pretty good example of the style with some complexity while retaining a good level of drinkability.

RyanE (143) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Cloudy yellow with white head that dissapears quickly. Clings nicely to glass. Aromas of Dry grass, apricot. Definitely a wheat beer. Dry cereal and fresh fruit taste. Slightly oily on the palate but crisp finish. Not generaly a fan of wheat beer but this one is good.

Gerbeer (1674) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow without much head. Light vegetable aroma. Definite vegetable earthy taste with notes of yeast, coriander, and lemon.

sergelutaba (67) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
The pour is a hazy golden straw body with a nearly non-existant white head. Some short lived lacing rings. the nose is citric with a nice sweet wheaty malt, mild Belgian spice and a hint of banana bread. The taste is sweet and wheaty in the middle with bready malts and a hint of clove and coriander. Notes of lemon rind and banana. The finish has a light hop. overall, a good tasty wit, but nothing special going on with this one.

650ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy golden straw color with a very small head and short lasting lacing. Aroma is cereal grains with some mild spices and yeast with a bit of orange zest. Taste is cereal grainy sweetness with orange zest and coriander and a light hoppy bitterness and mild yeast giving a dry finish. Light bodied with good amount of carbonation. An ok white beer with nothing really special going on.
