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

Very much like a Hoegaarden flavour. Very light with notes of corriander and orange. Cloudy and pale colour.

Papillon (363) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 341 mL Bottle. Hazy pale yellow with a small soapy white head leaving good lace. Coriander stands out in the aroma along with the wheat and a spicy note and a curious celery-like note. And the flavor! MMMMM! It starts with a sweet citrus-wheat taste with coriander and grapefruit expressing in the aftertaste, ending in a clean finish with a little hint of ginger. Delicious!

An excellent example, on tap at the Toronto Festival of Beer 2005. Very hazy honey coloured with a hint of orange. Huge nose of orange and banana, with a taste to match. Lots of spice in the finish. My favourite from the festival, I hope they bottle this.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2010
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a nice thin white head and a million bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of corn, wheat, curacao, yeast and a lot of coriander seed - nice! Medium-bodied; Assertive carbonated feeling and a lot of lemon and citrus character up front fading to a slightly mild coriander seed taste ending with a good light wheat taste - very nice and complex. Aftertaste is mild, subdued, sweet and slightly tangy from the citrus. Overall, a very nice wit, definitely good for the style due to its complexity throughout the beer! I enjoyed this and would recommend it to anyone visiting Toronto or can get it at an LCBO! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the LCBO in Toronto (Summerhill), Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 11-October-2009, sampled at home in Washington on 16-April-2010.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2006
Draught at the Mill St. Brewpub - Came with a small white head, and was a cloudy orange/yellow with a nice gradient colouring from the top down. Aroma is full of citrus, yeast, some light spices, and light banana notes. Very aromatic. The flavour is also very full, with wheat, yeast, citrus, and a decent amount of bitterness, balanced just right with the spiciness and soft yeast/wheat. Carbonation seems right on, making this extremely refreshing. If they bottled this, I’d buy it all summer long. Apparently they are still working on this recipe, but as of last night at least, this is a very good Belgian wheat.

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2008
On tap at the Brewpub. Cloudy, deep yellow with a thin but persistent head. Rich wheat malt aroma, with orange, spices, banana, strong citrus notes. Thick, rich wheat flavor, somewhat like a big hefeweizen, but spiced like a Belgian wit. Very cake-like. Huge bananas. Thick but spritzy-clean palate. Very nice, merging the Bavarian and Belgian styles to some extent.

TheJester (1728) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2007
Hope this is the right place. 1.8 L imprinted jug from the Brewery, labeled "Growler - Belgian Wit 5%." Hazy gold with minimal head. Aroma is peppery, with cloves and banana. Taste is complex, with all of the usual. Perhaps a little more malt sweetness than some. Crisp. Well done, as usual.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2007
341ml bottle, 5% a/v Cloudy straw colour with a thin head. The nose is spicy, hoppy, and fruity. Very complex and complimentary. The taste is of citrus, banana, coriander, and cloves. A fairly well bodied beer for the style, with a peppery citrus aftertaste. Very nice Wit, and great to see it brewed by a local Micro. Keep up the good work Mill St.
