3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The weakest of the JP beers. I think I need to try it again though. Props for not being an over the top wit like Leinie wheat that my girlfriend just bought.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
To call this one foamy is an understatement. Slightly hazy golden colour. I find the aroma sort of mute and quiet, with light esters, some spice and nutmeg like quality and some citrus. On the palate it is light tasting, sporting some zesty citrus character and some sweet tang like flavour as well as those yeasty and wheaty notes. Decent stuff but not sure if it is one of the better representations i’ve had from this style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cloudy straw gold with a big soapy looking white head. A slow gusher. Yeasty spicy clove aroma with light banana. The beer has a medium body with a bit of viscous mouthfeel. Tangy wheat, wine like with light witbier notes. I was expecting more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with frothy persistence to the soft white head, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was an expressive but smooth presentation of floral notes, coriander, orange zest, and a hint of bubblegum. Light bodied, the taste was dry & tart, but offered a spritzy, seltzery effervescence that was almost a bit too lively, as it interrupted my enjoyment with some necessary burping. Otherwise, quite tasty & refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle. Gushed upon opening. Settles down eventually. Almost impossible to pour. Hazy gold with a huge, fluffy, white head. The aroma isn’t too far off the norm. Maybe more herbal. Smells like Coke would smell if Coke were golden instead of brown. If that makes sense. The flavour is a little further from the middle of the road. Quite tart.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours cloudy straw-golden with a large white head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of coriander, orange peel, tart citrus, wheat, oak and a touch of Brett. The flavour is surprisingly dry throughout with a subtle tart fruitiness, wheat, coriander, orange peel, green apple, oak and Brett notes. The finish is long and dry with tart fruity notes. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a dryish texture and intense carbonation. Overall, a very nice witbier with elegant Brett notes. It is a fair bit drier than I would have expected, but also nicely tart. A nice refreshing summer brew. 2014-08-06

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Percy’s.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a decent glossed over yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds.
The lacing was somewhat there and just kind of went all over.
The smell was tart and had some light orange and orange peel, light coriander, light lemon and ends with just a tad of yeastiness.
The taste was sweet and yeasty with a decent bitter to tart conglomeration of the lemon and orange peel.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fair carbonation to allow a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, good witbier I’d probably have again.
