White Shadow refers to the unique magic that happens when we combine two great styles – the refreshing spiciness of a Belgian style wheat beer with the bold hopiness of a North American IPA. Our White IPA is brewed with Pilsner malt, wheat malt and oats, and spiced with sweet orange peel, corinader and chamomile. A serious charge of Cascade and Columbus hops give the beer a nice citrusy bitterness. A Belgian yeast strain is left unfiltered to lend notes of clove and bitter fruit to the flavour, and a shadow to the golden hue. Because wild things can happen in the shadows.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. I first tried this at a beer tasting festival and wanted to try it again. Ours straw yellow with fluffy white head. Nose has citrus, grass, and some pepper. Taste is smooth and refreshing. I really like this one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is clove, lemon grass, yeast, coriander and spice. Taste is sweet malts with some light grassiness and earthiness. Finishes crisply. Appearance is a foggy gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

2015-06-03. Hazy yellow body with a massive creamy white head. 3+ Aroma of spice, yeast and coriander. Flavour is quite bitter, spice and hops, mild yeast notes. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Sharp and a touch off-putting. On tap at Craft, Edmonton.

Tap at Limmericks. The second dirtiest pint ever. Lots of yeast. Looks like a banana energy drink. Tasty hoppy yeasty beer though.

This is a really delicious white IPA. Tons of flavour, all the hops and citrus of a top notch IPA and some nice spices/pepper, coriander, orange zest etc from a Belgian. Really good!!

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours a cloudy light gold with a small white top and good lacing. Taste is light orange zest with wheat and solid carbonation. Nice citrus hop bitterness although moderate. Very refreshing.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow, a large dense white head leaving a bit of lace. Aroma is sweet honey like notes, zesty orange peel, coriander, and bready wheat. Flavour is much of the same, citrus, zesty orange, lemon, mild-med bitterness, mild sweet honey like, wheat, and some coriander.

Pours a hazy yellowish with a nice frothy white head and some lace. Aroma of lemon, pepper, coriander, orange zest and floral esters. Taste is lemon zest, citrus, coriander, some spicy pepper notes and a smooth bitterness on the finish. Bit low on the ibus to be an ipa however it is very well balanced throughout and nice and refreshing to drink.

I would say this is much more of a strong Pale Ale rather than an IPA. The wheat and hops really shine, to me it seems like they added a bit of Brett. Really smooth, hoppy, balanced with a dry fruity, wheaty finish. Very intersting and under appreciated. Lovely.

Clear, pale straw yellow. Solid inch of pillowy head. Initial whiff is very northwest IPA - lots of citrus, pine, hint of tropical fruit. Hint of a peppery, earthy yeast. Taste shows a lot more belgian stuff - more dirt, less citrus. Dry, puckery finish. Taste is honestly a little...missing.
