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.

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.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - 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.

solidfunk (3022) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Decent wit. Pours pale blonde, not much head or lacing. Slightly sour. Soft carbonation. Light overall, well-balanced but not super exciting. Just an average witbier. Tap at Vices et Versa.

lesifflebiere (1036) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
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.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a small fizzy white ring Around the glass and a small bit of yeast at the bottom. Aroma is coriander, sweet honey, citrus, wheat and yeast. Flavour is coriander, orange, mild bitterness, wheat and spicy yeast.

Reimer96 (1072) - 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 (704) - - 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.

Eructoblaster (2858) - 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 (1298) - 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.
