If variety is the spice of life, then Brewmaster Andrew Tessier sure likes it spicy. Enjoy this zesty wheat beer spiced with coriander, orange peel and a secret spice.

Lagerboy (2013) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
Bomber. Clouded chunky yellow, fluffy white lasting foam. Aroma of wit spices and orange zest. Taste has lots of orange citrus, coriander and wit spices, lean wheat malt, a bit soapy. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

mcberko (15018) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
On tap at Swans Hotel, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out coriander spicing upfront, followed by citrus and wheat. Flavour brings out lots of citrus upfront and spicy coriander. Nice mix of flavours. Well-constructed and more interesting for the style.

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
Jaune brumeux avec une belle robe blanche qui laisse les belges dentelles. L’arôme des épices et un peu d’agrumes. En bouche c’est doux, avec un pue d’agrumes et très peu d’épices.

On tap at Swans. Lots of bananas and clove here. Taste is pretty sour and a bit mealy.

The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl - Golden straw in color hazy with a thin head. Easy drinking Wit.

Ferris (13199) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Draft - Lemon, grass, banana and spice. Cloudy yellow, with a thin white head. Bitter lemon, grass, banana and a long yeasty bitter finish. A little harsh and edgy for a Wit.

On tap @swansvictoria. Hazy orange-yellow with foamy head. Big mandarin orange with coriander, Belgian yeast and a background funk (beat). Significantly hopped up. A peculiar (but not bad) take on the style.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Vertabim from notes 16JUL11 Light ale with no head and a good wheat color with hazy tone (should be a little more hazy). Wheat, yeast, coriander, grain on the nose. Pretty standard fare. Lots of sweet wheat on the flavor wit hsome more yeast and hints of clove. Thin and flat for the style. Dry finish, this is totally off IMO. Not a good example of the style. Serving type: on-tap 08-04-2011

Tmoney99 (13782) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Draft sample. Pours hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus spice and yeast aroma. Medium body to a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet citrus finish of an average duration. My expectations where met.

Taster at Swans in Victoria. Light, hoppy, not really witbier-like. Not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
