3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle opened up with a loud pop, making me fear I was going to get a gusher, but no. Pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is nicely balanced between pepper/spices and citrus. Taste is also pretty balanced between the two and pretty dry. Citrusy. Some crackery wheat. Light to moderate bitterness. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderately high and mouthfeel is pretty fluffy. All in all a pretty solid witbier if you ask me!

Hazy pale blond color. Delicate spicy Wit, the light residual sweetness and light fruity esters contribute to the balance. Pleasant.
Appearance: slightly hazy dirty pale straw with a massive fluffy white head, excellent retention and chunky soapy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: wheat, coriander, light banana, hint of citrus. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light spice. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter and spicy finish. (4/5)
Hmmm… I see why they make the frankly surprising admonition (for a witbier) to leave the sediment in the bottle: it starts off looking slightly unclean with a fairly clean pour after a gentle swirl of the bottle, but when I more aggressively swirled in the lees to get the true “white” character in the remainder, it turned a fairly unappealing dirty opaque ditchwater tone. Decent wit other than the appearance, though. (14/20)

Bottle - Soft wheat and some orange notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. Wheat and some fruity esters, light banana. Not bad.

650 ml bottle. Pours amber with full white head. Aromas of wheat and spicy coriander. Muted flavors of malted wheat, chalk, and dry coriander. Lots of carbonation. Oakes (19711) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2017
Hazy. More tan than white. Has an estery, slightly yeasty nose, and there is some sweet malt. But also phenols in the direction of smoked electrical wire. Ok but those yeast issues...really uncharacteristic of Dageraad. mcberko (20482) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2017
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a cloudy yellowish blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out a good punch of coriander, light citrus and wheat. Flavour is soft and rather complex for the style, with a good dose of coriander, light citrus and soft pillowy wheat. Whispy palate, with light-medium carbonation. Nicely done.
