Poured a nice hazy golden colour. The head covered the top all through the drink and left ok lacing. taste of citrus fruits and banana, with a little spiciness. Had a bitter end finish, unusual for Wheats, not horrible, but different

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a huge white head that settles quickly and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon zest, yeast and some caramel notes with some spices. Taste is a spicy and citrusy hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness finishing with a dry yeast. Light bodied with generous carbonation leaving a zesty tingle on the tongue. A really well done witbier that I am sure any beer lover would enjoy.

Pretty good and a welcome sud-bud on a hot’un in Atlantic Canada. Enters the glass a hazy gold and smells of wheat, honey and slightly spicy Belgian yeast. Taste is light sweetness with bubblegum, honey and wheat greeting the t’buds. A nice light refreshment for a summer’s day.

Bottle. This was a nice change from other witbier, as you did taste more tropical fruits and spices than normal. It was very refreshing with its zesty finish. Perfect for a hot Halifax day.

Not bad in away but disappointing. Hoegaarden is better bang for the buck. I’d drink this at a party, but I’m not sure I’d buy it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Le liquide est blond, légèrement voilé, surmonté par une mousse dense qui dure longtemps. Elle sent bon, elle dégage des odeurs de céréales diverses et sucrées, la coriandre, la levure et à plus faible intensité, la purée de bananes. Ça goûte dans des palettes semblables aux arômes, mais j’ai plus l’impression d’une blanche allemande. Des saveurs de blé, de levain, un côté acide et suret, qui nous font le coup des câbles élastiques, un peu comme à la lutte, se promenant dans la bouche d’un côté à l’autre en se percutant à qui mieux mieux.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
slightly hazy golden colour with a well carbonated head. wow the aroma gets funky fairly quickly; has a slight belgian ester note and a slight fruit lemon note but there is a bunch of earthyness as well. palate is light, almost watery but it has a sourness and green apple which i’d say gives it a rounding effect; well carbonated.

Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Nose is a fruity, banana, orange. And taste is similar. Great brew but not the best Bel in IV had. Purchased a 500ml bottle for$4.25 from the garrison brewery in Halifax.

Lots of mouth popping flavours in this one. Bottle from the brewery. Nose is mostly yeast with some orange peel. Mouth gets hit with lots of interesting stuff... orange, yeast, mango maybe. Finish is a bit peppery. Pours clear straw coloured with good head rentention and lots of lacing. Lovely!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery - picked up and sent to me by my brother-in-law in Halifax. Slightly hazy gold with a HUGE foamy white head. Aroma of citrus peel and pineapple, bit of yeast and spice. Crisp and lively mouthfeel, really refreshing. Very nice flavour of orange zest, lemon oil, peppery hops, fresh herbal back note, and a great yeasty tang in the finish. Definitely not a typical Belgian wit - more of a Saison, really - which probably explains why Garrison entered it into the Canadian Brewing Awards under that style and won a Bronze medal. Style aside, though, it’s just a really great beer.
