larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2007
Biggish white head. Pale hazy grayish body. Artificial mealy aroma. Acidic sharp spicy mealy taste, kind of dry. Dry, citric metallic aftertaste. Didn’t appeal to me, to sharp, spicy, artificial and unbalanced. (0.275l draft Montreal, St. Catherine.)

daniel0017 (380) - Yukon, CANADA - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Rue St-Catherine brewpub: Clear, light golden hue. White bubbly head of 1 finger and good retention. Aroma is sweet and lively with floral and citrus notes. Flavor is much the same with almond and amaretto aftertaste. Palate is strange becuse of astringent lingering feeling. this one was called the "St. Anne Blanche" at the St Caterine’s location.

Drink4Satan (675) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Had at the brew pub on St. Chathrien’s street in Montreal. This was the weakest offering from their selection, but still pretty good. This drank less like a wit and more like hefe, mostly due to the banana and wheat apparent in the taste and the aroma. The taste of orange citrus, light corriander and clove lets you know its a wit, but it needed to be less sweet and have more of a bitter finish to be a completely satisfying wit. I felt the body was a bit thin, too.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Pint at the Old Montreal location. Pours cloudy with with a smallish white head. Smells of coriander and cumin with some citrussy notes. Sessionable and good with my meal.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2007
En fût, à l’établissement de la rue St-Denis à Montréal. De couleur jaune et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (citron, moyen de bananes), légèrement épicé (coriandre, léger de clou de girofle), léger de blé avec des notes de grains de malt pâle et de gomme balloune. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées aux petites notes aigres (citronné, léger de bananes) et moyennement épicé (coriandre, clou de girofle, traces de muscade) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un léger goût de blé asséchant et des notes malté de céréales sucrées (traces de miel) et de gomme baloune et une finale légèrement amère de houblon herbeux et floral (notes sèches) ainsi que de levures aux notes épicées (poivre). Post-goût moyen-court et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux et de levures avec une légère aigreur fruitée (citron, pelures de banane) et un léger goût de blé asséchant.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2006
Saint-Paul, Montréal. Robe blonde paille très coilée surmontée d’une mousse blanche timide. Arômes de citron. Saveurs de citron, de blé, de coriandre et de bananes.

rederic (2896) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006
On tap at their newest location on St-Cathrerine corner Crescent, hazy yellow hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty fruity nose of banana, ripe apples, with a spicy cinnamon accent, wheaty note, and a citrusy aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, wheaty, fruity character of ripe apples and bananas, with a some spicy accents of cinnamon and nutmeg, hint of citrus fruitiness, subtle flowery hops, leading towards a spicy juicy citrusy finish. Not blache but rather an hefeweizen.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 Draught, in Strasbourg. Lemon aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Stable, creamy white head. The flavour is citric with medium bitterness. The carbonation is plenty, but feels mild. 6 3 6 3 14

Draught at the brewpub in Toronto. Weak spicy aroma, a bit like cough syrup. Cloudy yellow colour. Almost no head. The flavour is also mildly spicy, cough syrup again. OK refreshing, though. 6 3 6 3 13

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Rue St. Denis, Montreal location... Draft... Milky, pear-colored ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is of very light lime? Grain? Straw?... mostly nondescript. Fruity, perfectly-balanced flavor. Tart and tangy... some kind of citrus blend. Light-bodied and dry with fizzy carbonation. Finishes watery, but fairly refreshing. Odd, but very decent.

Quevillon (2448) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2006
Dans le Vieux-Montréal. Très peu de collet, très légère arome de coriand, trop légé en saveur pour une witbier. Peut-être avec une lime serait mieux.
