robinvboyer (3260) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
On tap at sawdust city. Hazy golden pour with a small white head. Lovely aroma, mango, citrus, and some slight herbal notes. Solid mouth feel, good carb. The finish is lightly bitter, crisp, and very refreshing. The mango really comes through in the end with a lively herbal, citrusy final note.

Helsdon (207) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
Honest? I was getting pretty drunk by this one, but thatís the way it goes at the Ratebeer Toronto East vs. West Beerratic event at the Only. But maybe this beer benefitted from itís brethren messing up my blood, and hurtiní my liver. Who knows? Not me. Itís a wit beer that looks, well like a wit, blonde with haze, with one finger of dense white cap. The nose is wheat malts, some cilantro and some cardamom. Similar taste lighter wheaty malt, cilantro and cardamom. I say itís ok-ish. And you should know, since this is from notes, I apparently speak drunk Helsdon. Convenient. Iíll revisit this one at some point and give evaluate it a little earlier in the evening.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2344) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa beerfest. On tap at the Ottawa beerfest, it pours a light opaque straw gold. The nose is earthy, mildly spicy with soft herbal hop notes. Soft bodied with a round carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter, light cloves, bready wheat, with a lightly hoppy green bitter finish. A clean hoppy weizen.

cfrancis (2501) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours cloudy light yellow with a big frothy white top. Aroma is light wheat, citrus hops and clove. Taste is slightly astringent, well carbonated but the citrus hops and the clove and banana battle. Was not a big fan.

BreWedge (334) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap @ Moon Room. Pours a mildly hazy gold with a mid size pillowy white head. Aromas are very spicy, toothpaste, and a little banana. Tastes are heavy clove, touch of banana, some bitter hops. Medium to long astringent finish. Interesting beer but I don't find that the wit/IPA combination does it for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
