A blond-orange gown greets the eyes, topped with ample, sticky foam. Leaping coriander seeds and slightly citrusy fruitiness coexist in harmony, as wheat and spices frolick all around.
A perfect carbonation, fluffy but comfortable, sends over a very flavorful interplay of coriander, fruity yeast, leafy hops and milky sweetness. The finale is equally succulent, introducing mild herbal hop bitterness into the already very active flavor display. This is a textbook Witbier, expertly rendered.
On tap at Brouhaha.
Cloudy orange colour and a white fizzy head. The aroma is very appetizing. Big orange juice notes, citrusy and nicely sweet. Unfortuneately like many other wits, the body just doesn’t carry through with it’s promise. Spritzy and very sweet with malt - citrusy and lightly yeasty, really just not much to captivate.

Couleur jaune foncée à la teinte laiteuse, apparence pleinement brouillée et opaque. Moyenne quantité de mousse largement diminuante laissant une fine couche sur le dessus et la paroi du verre. Arômes dominés par les épices, gingembre et coriandre allant jusqu’à la vanille, donnant ainsi un côté de dessert. Plutôt levurée en bouche, une juste quantité d’herbe vient momentanément faire distraction, aussi quelques esther apportant une touche fruitée rappelant les pêches. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince à moyenne, carbonatation fine et active, fine mi-sèche et toujours herbale. Bouteille Dep. Peluso, août 2005.

(Bottle) Purchased at Depanneur Peluso, Montreal. Pours a medium, white, frothy head that dissipates quickly and a greyish-gold body. The nose of this beer is one of the finest I have ever smelled on a Wit - Passion fruit, oranges, nutmeg, green tea, pumpkin and wheat. The flavours transcend rather nicely with lemon, wheat and coriander manning the frontline while a reserve of pepper stands back and observes. I really like how this is put together. Cheers!

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2008 Sampled on tap at Brouhaha. Hazy blonde pour with a thin white head. Good aroma of wheat, spices and lemon. Good, refreshing flavor of lemon, spices and wheat. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. A very nice witbier.

Bottle: Poured a quite dark yellow color wit with a large head with average retention. Aroma of wheat is mix with coriander and citrus. Taste is stronger then usual witbier with lots of coriander, pepper and a citrus/grassy aspect also. Wheat is clearly identifiable and very enjoyable. Body is more full then your average witbier and also I noticed that the beer is quite hazy. I like my wit to have character and this one doesn’t miss… tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Citrus and pepper/coriander spiciness with light honey-like notes are joined by fair herbal hops in the nose. Opaque milky-tan coloured body with low white head that diminishes rapidly to ring. Perfumey, lavender and honey-like sweetness with orange citrus tones and some light lactic character also displays coriander and peppery spiciness in the crisply tart, dry finish. Medium-light body has a pleasant creamy texture that is offset wonderfully by the sharp, high carbonation. Aside from being slightly dark and having issues with head formation, this is a very pleasant offering and pushes witbier to the next level. Tulip glass, just below cellar temp.
