COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian White is an Imperial Whitbier (Belgian White Ale) made from wheat, oats and malted barley. Galaxy and Citra hops lend subtle citrus flavours that are woven with a thread of clove from a classic Whitbier yeast strain, and finished with a dusting of ground coriander seed.

CapFlu (4502) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Penny Farthing Liquor Store. Pours a frothy white head atop if a cloudy, sediment-filled light amber. The nose is of wet wheat and a tad spicy. Good yeastiness, wheat base and spiced. This came out around the same time as the Vancouver Island Flying Tanker which I prefer to this Lighthouse White IPA. Good.

Belgian style white ale, yellow/gold colour. Silky white head that lasts. Citrus nose with both bitter and sweet taste on the palate. Really enjoyed this summer sipper that does not taste like it's 7.5% alc. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 3 from Victoria shipment. Hazy, yellow, small white head that doesnít last. Clove, banana, pine, hops. All blends together nicely. Really smooth. Good beer.

reebtogi (4155) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
A couple of samples at VCBW 2012 pours a pale golden color with a generous white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light yeast with light fruits and some coriander spice. Taste is malty sweet with some light fruit and malt sweetness with the spices. Flavors are nicely balanced with abundant carbonation and a medium body leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A nicely done brew and definitely recommended to try.

fiulijn (14397) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from BC Liquors on Alberni and Bute
Hazy blond color, with creamy head. The aroma of wheat is a bit spicy, yeasty, but also dirty. Round mouthfeel, some wheat flavor, with moderate yeast spiciness and relatively high bitterness for this beer, yet not excessive.
Drinkable but still a bit simple, not sharp enough in the spicy character, and without any fruity touch; because of the strength, it gets closer to a Triple.

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Unclear bright yellow, frothy white head settles and lasts. Yeasty wit citrus zest aroma. Bold and spicy citrus wit taste, coriander and clove, some banana and alcohol. Average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Aggresive and delicious, but probably NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

steaky (26) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2012
650ml bottle. Pleasing fresh smell. Clean and well hopped dry. A good change from the fruited and spiced efforts this style sees.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
(Bomber from Liquor Plus Douglas) Mmm yes wittier than me thatís for sure. Coriander and zest are there, nicely balanced. I also had this as a base for some Thai-style beer they had on cask at the Beagle one night, and it worked exceptionally well. Iím not a big fan of the style but yeah this makes most wits taste like crap.

Gold, white head.Coriander,citrus nose. Watery but astringent profile,orange peel.Long bitter hop finish doesnít meld, comes across unblended. Not a good effort

stantheman (648) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
From a large bottle, purchased at Viti in NW. Pale, golden color in the glass. Generous head, but faded fast. Sweet and citrus to the nose. Flavor well balanced between sweet, citrus and bitter. Clean and crisp. A very pleasant summer whitbier.
