Bottle. Being fairly new to craft beers and to this particular style (witbier) I had difficulties making up my mind to come up with an accurate rating. So I opened up a regular macro beer to compare side by side. Well well…. simply no comparison whatsoever. This beer is by far much better in terms of aroma and taste.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy, very bubbly, dark yellow with a big lasting foamy white head. Aroma and flavour of wheat, banana, apples, coriander, pepper and honey. Light bodied and refreshing. This is pretty good, a pleasant tasting Witbier -- I’d gladly have it again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (660ml). Shared with blankboy, his bottle. Poured hazy light gold with a lasting large white foamy head (3.5). Well, smells like a belgian wit - ash, banana, applesauce, coriander, lemon juice, honey - mild and pleasant. Tastes like it smells - honey, lemon, apples and wheat, mild spice, lightly carbonated, sticky mouthfeel, not much linger or aftertaste - a good patio beer, nothing too complex or challenging, but well-made, no negative elements to report.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with beanmedic (thanks!). Poured a lighter and hazy yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of corriander, lemons and yeast. Tastes of lemons, lighter spices, bananas, and wheat. Thinner but somewhat lively body that leaves on a crisp note.

I had a bottle of this in some place in Montreal where they took me to try poutine. Poutine is an excellent way for a french fry to go, by the way. It had the right sharp spicey nose. Light spicey corriander and lots of yeast. Lively on the tongue. Strong enough to accompany the poutine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught pint at an unknown Café on Rue Ontario in Montréal
Hazy clouds with stark white cumulonimbus head, strikingly beautiful. The nose if rich in sugar, white grapes, rich decocted malts and a hallertaur crispy note. The flavor is plenty balanced with tangy yeast notes and their creamy rich partners in crime. Finishes earthy, a little starchy but I found this to be very tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden color and no head. Wheat aroma. Taste of wheat and lightly spicy. Lively carbonation, noy a bad beer.
Bière de couleur doré avec aucun collet. Odeur de blé. Au goût, elle est un peu épicé et goût de blé. Co2 élevé, pas une mauvaise bière, elle manque un peu d’originalité et de goût.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium gold in colour with a fair amount of carbonation. The aromas are fairly muted, but there are traces of yeast, citrus and wheat. The flavor component is way more substantial. There is a good balance between the wheat, yeast, citrus, bubblegum, and spice elements. I also noticed a touch of roasted sesame on the finish. A solid wit, and perhaps a bit under-rated.
