Cloudy gold with a thick white head. Aroma of spicy wheat. Flavor is bready, yeasty. Subtle hints of lemon. Clean and tasty.

SinH4 (359) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Cloudy yellow with huge head. Wit aroma, spicy yeasts, fresh lemony. Taste is juicy, citrusy, a bit of cookie dough. Not so dry and not too spicy, but very easy to drink. A nice Wit with character!

rjplumer (508) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Super white foamy head. Hazy straw yellow colored body. Soft clove banana with a touch of lemon and breadiness. Taste was much the same with the tart lemon,clove and banana taste. Very light on the bitter scale. Finish was clean and tart. Enjoyable and refreshing.

HippyHop (308) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Cloudy straw-coloured pour with a brief, but loud, cameo appearance by a clean white cap. Nose is lemon, wheat and musty yeast. Taste was sort of surprising. It’s quite sour/citric, and the musty notes seem to amplify. Mouthfeel is wonderful; creamy and very carbonated, and the finish is crisp, slightly bitter, but with lingering soapy notes. This sort of goes in the "I’m not sure" pile for me.

samzim (265) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Spicy aroma with notes of orange. Hazy gold colour. Bready flavour with notes of coriander, ginger, and citrus. Body is somewhere between light and medium with mild carbonation. Quite an enjoyable beer.

DomD (114) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Poured from bottle. Aroma of citrus zest. Pours a cloudy pale with white head. Has a light sour taste. Medium to full bodied, creamy texture, with a slightly tart finish. A rather complex beer, a lot less sour than I expected with much more body than any other witbier I have tasted.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Pours pale and hazy. Dry, bready and finishes with a slight bitterness. Citrus notes. Very clean. Overall this is good, but probably not something I’ll reach for very often.

Motobashi (102) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2015
Poured ligt hazy gold. 1 finger head. Active carbonation. Floating yeast. Citrus and moss aroma. Very faint bitterness on the finish. Pretty good

Citric flavor with coriander, orange with a trappist twist! Best with bar appetizers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Best by date of 07.08.15. Poured into a tulip on 05.23.14. A: 2 1/2 finger head. Very cloudy yellow/orange with yeast. S: Wheat. Also citrus (orange) and cloves. T: Egg, wheat, orange are dominant. Cloves are subtle. M: Very creamy with some carbonation at the end. Chewy. O: This was interesting to try after trying American wits. It was not crisp and had a much heavier mouthfeel in general. It was good, but not a favorite.
