Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Hazy tan/blonde, thin head. Floral aroma with lots of malt sweetness and a ton of coriander. Smells like what it is - a suped-up wit. Sweet, creamy, soft and full mouthfeel. Spices are up front, but not intense. Gentle hop, lots of malt but not cloying. Not a bad effort at all.

RD400F (180) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
Appearance...transparent amber with a tiny white head that rapidly diminishes. Aroma is spice, coriander, lemon, orange peel, citrus fruits and various others. Taste is fruit basket, sweet caramel, spices, pepper. Quite reminiscent of Unibroue’s beers. Palate is smooth, alcohol undetectable, but very, very little carbonation. Overall pretty good but needs way more carb.

andrewturba (961) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours a fairly hazy gold with a large white head leaving good lace. Aroma is spicy wheat, notes of honey, perfume, coriander, and light zesty citrus. Flavour coriander, pepper, notes of honey, zesty citrus, spicy wheat, lightly tart, some ginger notes, and moderately bitter.

Reimer96 (1194) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head and good lace. Aroma of citrus, coriander, wheat, pilsner malts and spicy yeast. Taste is citrus, bitter orange peel, wheat, spicey cloves and a hint of banana. Good balance of malts and spices in this wit but just a bit of harsh bitterness on the finish but overall it’s nice and refreshing.

Lagerboy (1209) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Bomber. Mostly clear orange yellow, foamy white head settles and mostly fades. Aroma is fruity, wheaty, yeasty and spicy. Tastes as it smells, with a ginger orange zesty tang and too much coriander. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Some alcohol warmth towards the finish, though ABV is well hidden. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

sulawang (610) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
Visual: low-rez sticker label, seasonal, and no other info other than the ingredients. Pours cloudy light marmalade orange with a small lasting foamy head, thin layer of retention, some lacing, lots of activity. Nose: Sweet fruity banana and pineapple malts on the nose. Attack: creamy-fizzy mouthfeel, crispness Mid-palate: 5/10-sweetness, pineapple, banana, light yeasty in the malts, Finish: dry coriander, hints of ginger bitterness, banana exhale, mild soft bitter hoppy finish. Summary: Good balance and complexity in this one. Flavours are soft and subdued but blend together well.

650ml bottle (and on tap earlier this summer). Light hazy gold with fine-bubbled white head. Wheat, yeast, lemon zest, coriander, ginger just a touch of sweaty skunk. The odd funk doesn’t kill the taste, but helps bridge the bigger malt body with the various hop notes. Had it fresh from the brewery first and bottled later; this rating splits the difference between the two experiences. Not surprisingly, this beer was much tastier when freshly poured into, and from my growler.

This is definitely one of those mysterious beers... nice golden color... big fat bubbles... maybe I’m drunk. Exceptionally smooth... perfect for a hot summer day... I’m not too keen on the graphic design of the label... crap done by Adobe Illustrator...

vadie (661) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Jaune avec un col blanc. L’arôme a un peu de coriandre, blé, et agrumes. Un goût très bien équilibré des trois parfumes.Très bonne!

Gerbeer (1722) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow with medium foamy head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of citrus, coriander, and bubblegum. Very similar flavors with spice (ginger maybe), white pepper, grain, and vegetable notes. Tasty.
