COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with a blend of certified organic wheat malt, barley malt and ancient grain. Steeped with orange peels and fresh cilantro, fermented using a special Bavarian heffeweigen yeast, that produces notes of banana and cloves. No additives, no preservatives. Naturally carbonated for a smooth, clean finish. Nickel Brook Organic White is a unique and refreshing taste experience for the summer season.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
A hazy wit with a thin white head. In aroma, nice strawberry and bananas, with a hint of cloves. In mouth, more pronounced cloves, pleasant sweetness, creamy, spot on for the style. Nice light hopping action. Another fine offering from Nickel Brook. Bottle from JesseM, thanks !

bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Bottle from matt1275. Thanks again! Pours hazy pale gold with a finely bubbled white head. Aromas of citrus, banana and yeast. Near medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is clove, banana and touch of citrus. Finishes just a little bitter or perhaps zesty. More flavor than many wits.

Gorbalev (2893) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Matt1275 for the trade. Pours a nice cloudy yellow, small white head goes away quickly. Bit of skunkiness in the aroma much like the organic lager. Some spiciness too. Taste is better - lots of spiciness, some banana, yeast in taste. Mouthfeel si thin though with very little carbonation (it is needed). Not bad, but rough around the edges.

Spab (2124) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
341 ml bottle at Chancey Smith’s in London. Pours a cloudy yellow gold wioth virtually no head. Aroma of banana and slight spiciness. Flavour is similar although frutiness really comes through in the finish.

matt7215 (2109) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2009
sample at the brewery pours from a 341 ml bottle. pours hazy gold, a classic wheat pour. aroma of clove and banana. very solid flavour that isnt pure wit put more an all around wheat goodness. it shows aspects of several styles without strictly conforming to any specific style guidelines. enjoyable on this lovely early spring afternoon.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2010 Bottle: The decant puts a murky gold ale in the tumbler with a small sticky white puffy cap...laces the glass well. Aroma is biscuity with citrus tones and a fennel-coriander type spiciness. Flavor is toasty-wheaty-biscuity up front with aromatic herbal hopping and light citrus tone, starts drying up mid way and finishes with a dry tartness and a light bittering almost puckering...great stuff!. Dry, spritzy, spicey, citrusy, refreshing great rendition of the style and the closest flavor profile to Hoegaarten I’ve tasted from local brewers of the style.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2008
Opaque beige. Slightly wheaty, lightly fruity nose. Spicy, spritzy character. Wheaty towards the finish with a hint of spice. Decent example.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Draught @ Volo. Hazy gold, not much head, served in tall lager glass. Mild but nicely spiced aroma with slight sour notes and a little lemon tartness. Soft carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Very yeasty. Has a sweet, sticky aftertaste but is actually quite nice flavor-wise with thick wheat malt character, solid spicing, and refreshing citrus and herbal undertones.
