Light and filtered clear wheat ale. Clean finish and not as heavy as a traditional wheat ale. Very faint fruity aroma.

Nutty grassy aroma not much. Light body. Taste is pretty light and cerealy. Not a great witbier.

patricks110 (2405) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
A mild mannered brew overall. Pours a bright golden orange with a finger of pure white head. Mild spiced notes of clove and coriander blend well with crisp wheat malt. Nice balance and clean finish overall.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a cloudy orangish yellow with a huge white fluffy head and lots of lace. Aroma of wheat, lemon, orange and spicy coriander not much Belgian yeast presence. Taste is lemony, wheat, spicey coriander and a dry finish. Overall just not a very good witbier a d rather disappointed by this offering.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2013
On tap. A hazy one, pale golden-orange in color, and topped by a white head. Quite orangey aroma, suspect some of that come from the silly orange slice the waiter put on the rim of the glass. Some maltyness, a touch of caramel maybe as well. Lacking big time on the spices, at least considering the brewery says it’s a Belgian-style wheat. That goes for the flavor as well. Some pale malts, but overall rather boring. Medium body, semi-dry. Well, it slakes the thirst quite well, besides that I’m bored with this one. 130703

GothGargoyle (2315) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2012
FNotes: pale yellow/amber with a slight haze and a good pale head. Aroma is peach, wheat, citrus, cream. Light on the palate, short finish with a nice crispness. Taste is citrus peel, wheat. Nice crisp and tangy beer that makes a good nod to the Belgian wit beers that inspired it.
