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

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.

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 (3013) - 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 (236) - 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 (1171) - 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)

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with a one finger white head. Belgian yeast, lemon, black pepper, and doughy notes on the nose. Nice carbonation, with far more crisp citrus than I was expecting, dough, and a light earthy black pepper note up front that leads into a spicy middle with an almost white grape note. Paraffin, and cloves in the finish. I’ll buy it again.

Freaky_tiki (471) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a hazy lemon peel yellow with about 7 suds on top. Aroma is inviting, with a seductive sour banana come hither scent. The yeast & spicy make for a decent flavour profile. Starts off strong but the finishes drops off too abruptly & generally comes off a little weak. Overall it’s a tasty quaffer for a hot & humid day but let’s face it, this is more imitation than it is innovation.

dfinney23 (1573) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Pours pale, hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and wheat. Coriander and yeast come on stronger in the taste. Quite nice.

BreWedge (294) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
On tap @ Corner Bar and Grill Ottawa. Pours a nearly clear gold (unusual for a wit) with a small white creamy head and plenty of effervescence. Aromas are slightly floral with a good punch of banana and spice. Despite the lighter look the taste is spot on what I would call a German wheat beer (banana/clove). Medium body, chalky, heavy carbonation, medium spicy finish. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Cloudy, brownish yellow pour. Sweet apricot nose mixed with some dry grass and bread dough. Powerful and bitter. Doesn’t seem very well balanced to me.
