COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mill St Belgian style Wit is a refreshing beer made with a unique blend of ingredients. The soft texture and pale colour comes from the use of wheat. Coriander, orange peel and our special yeast produce the complexity and depth of fruity flavours contained within the glass. This beer is unfiltered. The resulting cloudiness gave rise to the term Wit, or White beer

Sampler Bottle into a chalice. Looks nice, not too orange and not too pale. Decent head quickly dissipates. Smells of coriander and yeast. Tastes of slight orange, coriander, and lots of yeast. I’m surprised by just how yeasty this is. Being described as a "Flavoured Wheat Beer" has me expecting the worst (Blue Moon anyone?), but for a North American wheat, this one is decent and I wouldn’t refuse it. Would not buy on its own, though.

Pours a light cloudy yellow, with a medium foamy head. Aroma notes include coriander, orange peel, and yeast. Tasting notes include more orange peel, tangy citrus, yeast, and coriander. A general run of the mill Belgian wit, not bad.

lesifflebiere (1213) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Une blonde à la mousse blanche assez copieuse, et à l’apparence trouble comme le veut le style ; nez en agrumes et en paille. La bouche est fruitée (encore les agrumes, mais aussi d’autres fruits jaunes), un peu acidulée en finale, avec une complexité timide, mais quand même présente. Désaltération instantanée. Une wit excellente, pas révolutionnaire mais terriblement efficace.

jksipa (293) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy yellow with a small white head . Nose is cloves and yeast with a touch of lemon. Light sweet start quickly moving to a light spicy middle that ends a bit sooner than expected. Mouth is medium light with active carbonation.

shorlin (636) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Good looking wit, hazy yellow, white head. Aroma is coriander, some almost musty lemon. Very lemony taste, very mild coriander and spice. Very bright finish. Very clean beer. Pretty good.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy straw colour with a white head. Aroma is light cloves, lemon, light pepper, yeast... Light body. medium to full carbonation. Light bubblegum, light cloves, orange, a little pepper, some lemon... OK.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Aroma is what you’d expect with a Wit, banana, a touch of coriander, some lemon peel. Cloudy orange colour below a fizzy white head. Flavour has more lemon peel than the aroma and the spiciness comes forward more in the after taste as the beer finishes on the dry side. Wasn’t expecting much, but turned out quite pleasantly.

SlovakSniper (3048) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Une dégustation offerte par rodenbach99. Une robe jaune pâle et un petit col de mousse. Des parfums de blé doux, de banane et d’orange avec une coriandre qui n’étouffe pas l’affaire. Des saveurs légèrement acidulées avec l’épice qui prend plus de vigueur. Une bouche bien mince, peu gonflée par le blé. Une finale courte, plus ou moins forte, épicée et herbacée. Facile à boire mais peu stimulante.

exeter (265) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Pours a fairly clear straw colour, a slight murkiness. Head goes fast, no lacing.The taste is of crisp refreshing wheat and a good amount of citrus peel. Good Wit spiciness is present. Nice citrus mix here. The mouth feel is spritzy. One of the best Wits in Canada.

Lagerboy (1190) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
341 ml bottle from the Seasonal Sampler. Clear paler yellow, fading thin white foam. Milder aroma and taste of orange, yeast, coriander and wit spice. Softer than average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped, somewhat aqueous. Just okay. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)
