Concoctée spécialement pour les fêtes qui célèbre le 475e anniversaire de l’arrivée de Jacques Cartier dans la baie de Gaspé. Cette bière blanche aux notes d’agrumes et d’épices, brassée avec une proportion de blé, présente un degré symbolique de 4,75%. Parfaite en saison estivale!

A hazed blonde wit with a thick frothy white head. In aroma, a sweet fruity banana malt with faint cloves and light sulfur, very classic. In mouth, a smooth sweet banana with silky mouthfeel, cloves, coriander, classic. Tasted with GRM on August 28, 2012. Merci Sylvain.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 My Bottom Line:
Within this slender Witbier evolves refreshing coriander seeds, crunchy wheat, and floral allusions, a flavor profile ably developed by forceful effervescence.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the very pale yellow.
-Citrusy edges and watery moments appear once in a while.
-The nose and flavor profile are pleasant, balanced and geared towards drinkability.
-There are lots of good Witbiers in Quebec, so this one won’t stand out much, but it is still competently made and very refreshing.

Bottle [500ml] shared with garthicus & HogTownHarry -- c/o HogTownHarry. March 21. Pours a hazy yellow/light gold with a small frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, yeast and light herbs. Flavour of lemon and ginger, almost Soda Pop-like. Average bodied. Just O.K.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
March 21, 2012 with blankboy and garthicus. My 500ml bottle. Very pale, hazy gold, no bubbling at all, with a large frothy white head. Simple floral / lemon aroma; somehow it’s a bit unpleasant, can’t put my finger on why. Taste - not bad - lemon and ginger, no alcohol, not much fruity malt to it. Average body, solid carbonation, a little acidic, finishes quickly, leaves a dry lightly stinging coating on the palate - not bad, a little thin.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle: Poured a light hazy yellow color ale with a large light white head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of coriander is dominant with some light wheat malt notes. Taste is also dominated by coriander with a smaller malt backbone then expected. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. Not bad but additional malt would have provided better enjoyment of this beer.

(500 ml) Le liquide a une couleur jaunâtre et est passablement embrouillé. La tête mousseuse est évanescente. Le nez offre des effluves de blé, des parfums fruités de la levure (citron) et des épices (coriandre) qui tendent à s’affirmer davantage au fil des gorgées. Les saveurs sont principalement fruitées et épicées avec une très faible touche de blé et de céréales. En bouche, le liquide a un corps léger avec un pétillement très fort et une texture mince sans être aqueuse. La finale se fait sur des notes fruitées qui s’accompagnent d’une timide amertume.
