A refreshing effervescent Wheat Ale brewed with dried orange peel and coriander. Semi opaque hue and bright creamy head. Formerly a Sailor Hagar’s house recipe, but now brewed as a contract brew by Howe Sound.

On tap at Sailor Hagar’s, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out coriander spices above anything, along with citrus and wheat. Flavour is all spice, with loads of coriander coming out. Not much else, other than a bit of citrus and a wheaty mouthfeel. This is one of the spicier wits I’ve had. Decent.

Sampled at brewpub. Pours a murky yellow with a thin head and some lacing. Aroma is of clove and coriander with some citrus. Malt seems funky. Taste is flooded with orange and coriander. Crisp finish with a slightly bready aftertaste. Not bad.

Draught at Sailor Hagar’s
Golden color, hazy. The aroma is light; there is light caramel flavor, quite dry, with a shade of toffee. Drinkable Ale, though the last thing I would associate it to is a Wit.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Not a bad version of this style, which can be thin and boring. Quite tasty yet mild: not a big beer but a full-flavored example of a summer quaffer.

CapFlu (4370) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
(Draught) Sampled at Sailor Hagars in North Vancouver, BC, on June 20, 2006. Lasting white foam head with an unfiltered yellow body. Nose of pleasant ripe bananas. Mild creamy clove flavour beneath a light banana tongue and rose oil. It is hot and I am thirsty... this hits the spot sufficiently.

mucom (35) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2005
Cloudy yellow colored beer with a thin head. Aroma is of clove and coriander with notes of citrus and maltl. Overwhelming orange and coriander flavour. Too sweet and watery for a wheatbeer

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2004
Fresh and creamy, as if from the tap today. A great super-creamy malt with some bitters and dried aftertaste. A bit of citrussy banana fruit and spice but not taking away from its simplicity.

Cloudy light yellow in color with a sweet spicy banana aroma. Spicy citrus banana flavours, dry.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2004
From a 660 ml bottle. Pale yellow, slightly cloudy with a thin head and some lacing. Aroma is of clove and coriander with some citrus over an unusual malt smell. Seems like this is mostly barley malt rather than wheat. Huge orange flavour with a good amount of coriander in the finish. Crisp finish with a slightly bready aftertaste. A pretty good brew.

This is not retired. Cloudy yellow brown color. Lemon and soap in the nose, light body with lemon peels and goldings hops and a rounded finish.
