Bière de blé d'inspiration belge. Cette bière est aromatisée d'écorces d'orange et de coriandre. D'apparence voilée, c'est une bière très rafraîchissante aux effluves légèrement épicés.

Col de grosses bulles sur la paroi, couleur jus de pêches ou paille fraîche. Au nez, oranges, pamplemousse, levures de pain. Effervescence qui avoisine le zéro, et c’est bien dommage car elle est très savoureuse en bouche, et parfaitement balancée à tous les autres points de vue. Il en résulte une bière qui séduit d’abord, mais qui devient rapidement ennuyante. Pas obligé d’être pétillant à fond, mais un semblant de dynamisme carbonaté serait sérieusement le bienvenu.

Reimer96 (1647) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a hazy golden light orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma of fruity banana esthers, cloves, coriander and slight citrus. Taste is crisp wheat, sweet banana up front transitioning into spices and the a nice zesty citrus on the finish with some coriander. Overall this is an excellent easy drinking wit.

On tap @ L’Hermite (Victoriaville). Murky (opaque) yellow with almost no head and no lacing. Aroma is of cloves, ginger, orange and lemon. Taste is about the same. Low carbonation, almost flat. Medium body. Spices and citrus are subtle and get along very well to create a good balance.Mouthfeel/body is a bummer for me though. Average Witbier at best.

Johnsense (1077) - - MAR 30, 2013
Poured a cloudy golden yellow with a 1 finger head that stayed until the glass was finished. Aroma of lemon, pepper, spice, honey, bread, brett. Taste lives up to the aroma - lemon sourness balanced out by cracked peppercorn, brett funkiness, citrus hops. Thin mouthfeel and lightly carbonated. Now if only L’assomption was closer to Toronto.

This is a pretty basic, but good blanche. It has a bit of an orange and coriander flavour to it, and is lightly spiced. It is a nice refreshing beer. Light, but definitely not underwhelming in flavour. I liked it.

Eructoblaster (3477) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Hazy golden body with a thin white frothy head. Wice, fresh malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty, orange, and coriander hints. Its well balanced taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries coriander, herbal, citrusy, and yeasty notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Well done.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a veiled whitish straw with a short lasting white head. Smell is orange, coriander, lemon. Taste is lots of coriander, orange, lemon, peppery, and strangely...somewhat salty? Finish is spicy hops. Light, very subtle bitterness. Lingering coriander taste. Medium to strong body. An okay beer from a style I like, but very generic nonetheless, especially for its price. Disappointing, regardless of its rating.

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at Hopfenstark during their anniversary party. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a large white head that slowly deflates. Soft wheat on the nose, coriander is prominent with a lovely amount of orange behind it. Big musky coriander. Medium bodied, goes right away to a soft sweet wheat note, more coriander and orange. Carbonation is very gentle, possibly due to how foamy this one was when pouring. Long musky coriander into the finish. Very easy drinking.

Elle blonde et voilée, coiffée d’une bonne mousse blanche durable. Des levures belge en émanent dès les premières inspirations, suivies d’odeurs d’épices; de coriandre et d’agrumes. Un goût dans les mêmes cordes, accompagné d’une amertume propre aux agrumes, des épices qui semblent être d’une autre palette que ses arômes et le côté acidulé lui, est près du levain. (416-211012)
