4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle with Bruce at three philosophers. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a huge white foamy head. Aroma is apples, lemons, yeast, and some sourness. Flavor has lots of apples, some wheat, yeastiness, and lemongrass. A bit cidery, but really nice. Somewhat tart and sour. Really nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bière à la mousse blanche intense, nourrie par une furieuse carbonatation ; le liquide lui-même ressemble à de l’or translucide, avec juste assez de nuageux pour ne pas être totalement translucide. Le nez est acidulé, rappelle les levures saison, avec des fruits jaunes pour agrémenter. Une bouche mince, un liquide tranchant, un peu sauvage sur les bords (volontaire ou non, ça cadre dans le paysage). Sans cette mousse hors de contrôle, on aurait ici un superbe hybride wit/saison boisé, mais on se contente en fin de compte de la trouver délicieuse et d’une extraordinaire buvabilité.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer is a pale yellow color. Fairly hazy. Smallish white head. Fades away fairly quickly. The aroma is wheaty sweetness with lemony sourness and oak. Mild spicing. Some orange knocking around but it gets mixed up with the lemony sourness of the beer. Mild vanilla and other sweet woodiness. There’s some spicy wheat flavor up front. Lots of gentle lemon peel sourness. It really tastes more like a light, bright sour than a witbier. JP funkiness throughout. Lots of depth. Earthy and fruity background. The finish features a dry oak flavor and more of the spicing than showed up in the aroma. The coriander still seems pretty reserved but the orange peel makes its presence felt. Just gentle waves of lemon on top of a dried out wheat blanket. Pucker is mild but still more than you’ll find in any witbier. Relatively low carbonation. It’s a wonderful beer but hard to compare to the style. In my mind, it’s more of a low intensity sour. It would be interesting to try this beer blended into a normal wit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super cloudy golden pour with monumental amounts of white head that sticks around. I get a bunch of lacto on the nose with nice spice and wood elements and a lemony note. Pretty dry in the mouth with the lemon coming through a lot more, spice and wood notes as well. The lactic note that’s all over the nose is much less present. Finishes slightly tart.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml from the lcbo.
Cloudy oranger pour, huge, gushy, hard to pour white head. The aroma is pleasantly tart with some green, acidic hops and yeast notes.
The carb is a tad subdued to what i was expecting and the mouth feel is fibe. The finish is quite fruity, lots of orange, and lemon with some citrus zest from the green hops. The malted wheat really comes through in the finish. Medium to low bitterness, a superbly easy drinking beer. The tartness is very welcome to a normally boring style.

12.7 oz bottle. Pours a pale, straw yellow, hazy with an insanely large, rocky white head, matching retention and very nice lacing. Nose is fruity barnyard funk, grassy, daffodils, white pepper, chardonnay. Mouth is medium bodied, light creaminess, dry and pleasantly tart with hints of spices, citrus, lemongrass, bread dough and oaky wine barrel. Very nice.
