on tap on the premises. slightly hazy pale yellow greyish pour with a small resilient white cap, some lacing. light banana esters, red lightly tart fruitness, spices, pepper, yeast, shy pale maltiness, hint of wheat. moderate carbonation, light body - kind of watery and kind of a bummer for a christmas brew, gently tart and bland herbal finish. ok.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with no head and no lacing. Aroma is really light with some light fruits and some light fruity yeast. Taste is lightly fruity and not tart to me at all (another patron was told that it was tart, maybe it is just my gueuze-destroyed buds that are the problem here). Light bodied, moderately carbonated. This doesn’t feel festive and it is not something I would release for winter time at all. OK

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
On tap at Festibière de Québec as Blanche aux Canneberges. A clear orange golden with a nice white head. Aroma is tart and fruit. Flavor is fruit, orange, cranberries, tropical fruits. Finish is herbal bitterness and some tartness. Light body, average carbonation. Meh...

Verre de 12 oz, à la brasserie de Jonquière. Arômes acidulés de canneberges et de blé. Robe orangée et trouble, légère mousse. Assez mince en bouche, les canneberges sont assez discrètes au goût mais donnent une acidité agréable à la bière. On note également le blé et de légères touches citronnées. Une bonne bière, un peu surprenante pour une bière de Noel, et qui aurait peut-être plus sa place sur une terrasse que près d un feu de foyer.

Any first impressions?
-A veil of foam stands atop the cloudy orange-beige.
-Aroma’s pretty weak, barely offering any minty, herbal spiciness, and doughy yeast.
-Yeast is much more talkative once tasted, as the cranberries soar to offer plenty of juicy fruitiness and tartness.
-The smooth yet lively effervescence and svelte maltiness make up your usual Belgian witbier mouthfeel.

What if you dig deeper?
-Citrusy tartness creates even more interest in the finish.
-Feeble banana esters are found under the cranberry fruitiness in both aroma and flavor profile.
-This was a fun witbier experiment, but it didn’t shine nearly as brightly as the base witbier, called Muse.

On tap at the brewpub.
