COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lubiere (10485) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2008
A golden wit with a thin white creamy head. A very fruity aroma, more berries than bananas. In mouth, a very berry sourish wit, original and racey, citurs notes. Lighter bodied. Overall, a good starter. On tap at Brewpub, Apri 2008.

Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
On tap at Moniale 2009. Was expecting, and did receive a solid witbeer. Cloudy yellow with orange highlights. Some sourness. Well carbonated. A bit too cold for a sample, but that’s OK. Good drinkability

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Pale yellow pour - hazy appearance. A nice bright aroma - banana, tropical fruit and some light pepper as well. Mango, banana and pale wheat spiciness. There is a light tartness that makes this even more refreshing than it might otherwise be. Soft herbal bitterness and a lingering fruitiness. Damn tasty.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Crushed coriander seeds unite with the spicy, grassy hop finish to draw this Belgian witbier’s rustic personality. Citrus fruit render drinkability, as chewy cereals offer nourishment.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the opaque pale yellow.
-The spritzy carbonation succeeds in plowing through well-fed mouthfeel.
-The white peppery yeast works wonders with the hops’ own spiciness, and the coriander seeds.
-The bready yeast return is very enjoyable.
-Yet another unfiltered, full-flavored quencher from Hopfenstark. Bravo!

On tap at Vices et Versa.

jercraigs (8073) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2012 2012-06-09. Hazy pastel orange, small white head. 3+ Flavour is nice, sweet wheaty core, light bitterness and tart wheat accents. Hoppy bitterness grows as you go. 7+ Modest yeasty aroma, dry yeasty sort of grassy wheat character. 7+ Smooth average plus palate, low carbonation. 3+ Nice, quite quaffable. 7/3/7/3/15+ On tap at Mondial, Montreal

2008-10-17. Murky but bright pastel yellow with a modest white head. (3+) Zippy yeasty aroma with a kiss of lemon (7+) Flavour is the standard complement of wit characteristics, but very well executed. Yeast, touch of lemon tartness. More oomph than most wits can produce - just more of everything, but in proportion. (7+) Average plus palate. (3+) Rather good, went back for more! 7/4/8/3/16 - 3.8 On tap @ Volo Cask Days 2008

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at Vice et Versa, pours a very dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma is characterized by cocoa powder, with some secondary charcoal notes. Flavour is very stale and coal-like, with week-old stale coffee that pretty much dominates, a bit of muffled coal notes on the finish. Quite poor, with no real depth or pleasant subtleties.

j12601 (6927) - 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.

mabel (6830) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2009
[1794-20081017] Tap. Lovely spiced wheat aroma has a bit of cooking spices. Hazy, light orange brown body with quick white bubbles. More spiced wheat in the flavour with hints of cooked banana. Medium body. Lovely balance and aftertaste, very impressive brew.
(Cask Days 2008 @ Volo; Toronto, ON)
