COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cette bière de blé, de tradition belge, est rafraichissante avec ses arômes d’agrumes et de coriandre. La léonne est non filtrée, ce qui lui confère une texture et un côté voilé comme un bateau fantôme.

punkska101 (865) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
500 ml bottle from La Ferme Guyon Chambly A: Citrusy, corriander, leamon peel. App: Straw in color with huge white head on poor it’s hazy. T/P: light body it’s has a suprising bitter finish that last a bit. Fizzy. O: Pretty much on style. Like the spicyness on that one. Would make it rounder or remove some bitterness.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2012
A hazed blonde wit with a thin creamy lacing white head. In aroma, classic wit with cloves, bananas, creamy and smooth. In mouth, a smooth wheaty malt with fruity esters, bananas and berries, chalky notes, very nice. On tap at Brouhaha, March 11, 2012.

Belle mousse généreuse. Odeur d’orange et coriandre typique du style. Douce en bouche, légère acidité, pas d’amertume, agrumes. Satisfaisante mais j’ai comme un malaise; on dirait une copie de la Hoegaarden plutôt qu’un hommage et ça affecte mon ’overall’. Va falloir que je prenne une Hoegaarden bientôt pour comparer. Mais quoi qu’il en soit, c’est une bonne blanche.

pushkinwow (1990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
500ml bottle. Hazy yellow with light white head, large bubbles. Stale caramel, banana, light malt, some grains and barley. Bit sweet, good carbonation, very dry finish but plain with a slightly musty ending.

Bouteille 500 ml. 4.5%. Couleur jaune pâle voilée, mousse blanche. Arôme de Five Alive ! En bouche, douce, un peu d’agrume et pas d’amertume. Bonne.

Le liquide a une couleur jaunâtre. La tête blanche forme un col. Quelques pointes de dentelles s’accrochent au verre. Le nez présente de bons parfums de blé et d’agrumes. Une pointe de banane verte est perceptible. Les épices sont posées : la coriandre s’affirme avec délicatesse. Le goût est dominé par le citron et par les notes de blé. La coriandre chatouille les papilles. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen-faible avec une effervescence modérée et une texture agréable, presque crémeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes asséchantes de houblons avec un apport des fruits et du blé.

drank at quebec city beerfest. pale yellow, decent white head, some retention. bananas, spices, wheat aromas. taste is about the same. lively but almost aggressive carbonation. not complex but ok.

Spab (2337) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
500 ml bottle from random depanneur in Riviere du Loup. Pours a hazy bright, pale yellow with average-sized white head. Aroma is grainy with lots of coriander and a hint of lemon. Flavour is also big on the coriander with wheaty malt and a touch of citrus. Serviceable but nothing special.

Great white beer. Don’t know what happened to my taste buds, but I was picking up banana rather than citrus. Chock it up to my 13 hour drive before cracking it open! Still, was a lovely refreshing beer with a nice little spice bite to finish off.

DuffMan (6639) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2011 On tap @ the brewpub, enjoyed as part of their "compass style" degustation tasting tray. Pale hazy lemony yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of coriander seed, cardamom, and citrusy wheat. Lovely sweet spice (now maybe is that a little Bergamot in there too?) and tart citrus flavours, wheaty and creamy. Really nice.
