2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orangish pour with medium whitish head. Lots of citrus on the nose, orange and tangering primarily. Smells like Trident Orange MInt gum. Citrus is dominant, with some sweet malt, very little if any hop presence. A session beer for the new drinker.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at the brewpub. Yeasty aroma with some mild astringent sourness present as well. Some light citrus, orange hops are also detected in the nose. Moderate-mostly hazy orangey body with a frothy, off-yellowish head and nice lacing. Sweet, smooth malty start. Cheewy, caramelly middle with plenty of malts present. Light citric orange and spiced, dry hops to finish. A very drinkable beer, which seems to be more of a lightly hopped pale ale than a wheat to me. A great session brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft... Murky, deep amber ale with a small, frothy, off-white head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Fruity flavor with mild sweetness and light bitterness. Notes of citrus, pear, apple and banana. Medium-bodied and creamy with adequate carbonation. Finishes very lightly bitter, spicy and dry. Another thin offering not brewed to style. Mediocre at best even with style not being a consideration.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber orange with a small white head. Yeasty tart citrus aroma. Flavour is similarly yeasty, with grainy oddly fruity notes and a hint of cheap orange flavoured candy. Notes of sweet lemon. Average palate. Alternates between quite pleasant and a touch bizarre.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloudy orange body with a little head that quickly turns into a ring. Not much aroma… not much taste either. Some wheat, a little bit caramel and a whole lot of water. Could have used some hops. Very watery. I understand the brewpub rent must be expensive at this prime location near the trendy St-Laurent street in Montreal, but do they really have to water-down the beer?!?!? Refreshing that’s for sure, but tasty? Draft at brewpub.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Je l’ai trouver un peu amère, un peu de goût de blé, correctio, trop! Avec un très petit goût de caramel. Passable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The beer at this pub is a black mack on the great brewpub name of out city. The amber wheat, a favorite among regulars I’m told, is no exception. Pours a cloudy lightly carbonated drab coper, thin white head that forms a tiny island of sludgy foam that floats till the glass is empty. The nose is slightly bubble gum and salt water, but it’s very light. The mouthfeel is milky and overly wet. Taste is dominated by green wheat and bubblegum, some sour milk, and little else. Aftertaste is creamy toffie. All this and they served it to me in a shaker. Feh.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Draught) Half-pint ($4) purchased at the Reservoir Brewpub on November 4, 2005. Pours a thin, white, foamy and quick dissipating head with a cloudy orange body. No nose. Milky, past-due sour cream. Butterscotch finish. God awful... FYI: Reservoir = Montreal’s Black Sheep Brewpub. Poor quality. Poor service.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Opaque and amber, with only a ring of lace circling my glass.
Aroma is quite wheaty, with a witbier yeastiness, but it also had acidic twang that I’m fairly certain was an infection of some kind. I’m pretty sure the brewer here isn’t messing with Brett, at least not purposefully.
Soggy wheaties and bread, with a hint of spice that reminds me of Coup de Grisou, a local buckwheat hefe made by Cheval Blanc. However the infection showed up again in the taste, and was again a little too light. I know this type of Beer isn’t supposed to be too round in the mouth, but this one just had something lacking.
