COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have deviated a little from the traditional Witbier by omitting the usual coriander and citrus peel, but then blending into the kettle a huge addition of organic rhubarb puree. Cloudy, wheaty, dry and with that authentic Witbier thread of clove, Rhubie sports a distinct rhubarb flavour and classic rhubarb tartness.

gramity (1440) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Hazy straw pour with puffy white head. Aroma comes across slightly tart with hints of white grapes, Belgian yeast, spice. Creamy and lively body. Flavour has creamed wheat, spice, light fruit esters and a hint of tart rhubarb towards the finish

Lagerboy (1322) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear pale yellow, lotsa white sediment chunks, feeble fine white foam fades and rings. Tart wheaty citric aroma. Tart funky dry cidery taste, bland wheat malt, earthy and vegetal, slightly lemony. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. There is no fruit in this. Fail. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

sulawang (641) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours clear light almost-neon yellow, not much head, barely any lacing, thin ringed retention, many many active streams. Nose: very fruity sweet lemony citrus malts, (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: ultra crisp, light fizzy, incoming sweet malts Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) fruity rhubarb*, lemon citrus, wheat malt, yeasty Finish: lingering barley sweetness, thinnish body, pleasant sweet malt finish. Summary: *Truthfully I haven’t rhubarb by itself so I cannot pinpoint it’s flavour. Either way, this beer is a bit above average but nothing to write home about. Decent textures and crisp ability, but not that deep nor memorable.

09maso3 (72) - vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
yellow and fizzy, very light wheat aroma and flavour mostly sweet, little hopping to speak of, weak flavour of rhubarb, slightly cloying. not offensive, could drink a couple glasses, just a bit boring.

Ferris (4968) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle - Sweet berry with a slight acidity. Pale clear gold with a thin white head. Pale malts and light berry fruit. If only the taste lived up to the smell. So bland.

reebtogi (4368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
Sampled during VCBW 2014 pouring a pale straw color sporting a small white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is mild rhubarb and cereal grains. Taste is light rhubarb tartness with a malty sweetness and grassy bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Another fruit beer that fits right with me. The fruit is not too overpowering, making this a well balanced fruit beer. Well done.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Pale, straw. Some hay-like malt, dash of rhubarb, light, mostly a simple pale malt base, dash of rhubarb but arguably not enough, sweet finish with a little bit of alcohol.

stantheman (675) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
A 650 ml bomber from BCL in North Burnaby. Pale and golden, with a bit of whitish head. Faintly fruity on the nose. Taste-wise it’s an easy drinking, fruity, but unremarkable wit. 3.0.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbor, Vancouver
Cloudy pale blond color. Mild aroma of breadcrust and wheat. Dry mouthfeel, lean, with simple white bread flavor, but also a light tart and fruity touch from the rhubarb; the bitterness is very low. The final is lightly lemony.
Easy but refreshing; not bad, but just for the Wheat lovers.

Stizz19 (63) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow color with a thick white foamy head. Smells of bananas and oranges. Tastes pretty tart, i guess thats the rhubarb puree. It's an ok wheat ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
