2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Malone’s Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Muddy deep blond color, creamy head. The aroma is a bit lemony. Smooth mouthfeel, with light wheat flavor, very low bitterness, a touch of crispy malt, and a hint of lemon.
Simple but not bad.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught, Christie’s Carriage House
Cloudy dark yellow. Orangey, malty nose. The body starts full but almost immediately after the first liquid rolls down my throat the whole thing comes undone. Gasoline and spent grains come in, with a hint of citrus and precious little else. This is a bait and switch, the way it looks and smells like a decent wit but then ends up really sucking. Gimme sugar, gimme spice, gimme wheat and it’ll all be nice. Promise me that and then don’t deliver and I will not be a happy lad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange beer with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly spicy, but seems a little watery at the same time. Wheat, lemon and orange peel. Quite sweet and fruity with a spicy wheatiness. Watery flavour with wheaty hints. Meh... no awards here.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My Bottom Line:
Tons of coriander ride this Witbier’s flabby mouthfeel, burdened by sugar and even more coriander.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the cloudy whit-ish foam.
-If you like coriander seeds, this might work for you. No brewing flaws per say, just too sweet and spicy for my tastes in Witbier.
-This worked quite well with raw oysters though.
-The finish is endless coriander.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An unexpected rating at the end of a funny evening in Halifax, draft at Dooly’s pool hall. Ever so slightly hazy golden body with a moderate creamy white head that lingers with a weak attempt at lacing. Aroma is lightly yeasty with a funky mushroom citrus note to it. Flavour is balanced, sweet but lightly bitter with muted notes of the aroma. Not a great exampleof a wit, but not unpleasant either. Not memorable. It fit the experience rather nicely though.
