3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-10-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a hazy orange/yellow color with a billowy white head. The head faded relatively quickly giving way to a small amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell is largely of lemon mixed with some nice orange, yeast and wheat aromas mixed in.
Taste – The taste of a nice wheat backbone mixed with some strong sweet citrus flavors. The citrus is largely orange in nature with a sweeter taste. Toward the middle some yeasty and more bitter lemon flavors work their way into the taste. These help balance some of the sweet and take the flavor profile to the end.
Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is rather average. It has a medium body and an average carbonation level.
Overall – Easy drinking and affordable. It has some nice characteristics and makes for a good session brew.

At least they are trying I guess, Rickards White does it better though, not much. My experience with Shock Top feels like they brew the same beer over and over again, then throw different crap in so they can call it a new beer. They decided to throw some orange juice and coriander in the can before it was shut. Voila you have a Witbier.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 341 ml from The Beer Store
Aroma: milder but I have seen blander renderings. Hint of orange peel, mild sugars behind.
Look: poured as hazy amber with fizzy mid-sized white top.
Taste/Palate: medium bodied with thinner walls. Tropical fruit feel, touch of mango, orange and other citrus hints. Soft bodied with milder carbonation. Very non beer geek in approach but it works.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy yellow/orange, no head. Some wheat and yeast in the aroma. And some orange also, that might be the slice of orange dropped in my glass though. Fresh taste of wheat and yeasts and a little bit of a hoppy bitter finish. Way too watery and low to medium carbo. A bit of a safe take on a Belgian White.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from bottle at Metro Liquor in Kelowna, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Nose and flavour of light wheat, moderate Belgian yeast, and lemon. Pretty standard and unexciting, but refreshing. Okay.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Citrus and raw wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. I’ll drink this when at a ball game if nothing else is available.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bière orangée, pâle, trouble et peu mousseuse. Nez d’agrumes et d’épices. En bouche, la bière est d’abord très pétillante. Ensuite, les agrumes s’illustrent (c’est l’idée derrière cette bière, eh!). Étonnamment, la levure prend beaucoup d’espace plus en texture qu’en saveurs – avant de s’effacer dans une finale légèrement citronnée. Vraiment rien d’historique au tableau...

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Citrus and spicy aroma. Citus taste is followed by the wheat flavour. Good choice for hot summer day.
