Boutip (6567) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of coriander and wheat malt are pretty dominant. Taste is also heavy on the coriander notes with some great wheat malt notes and light residual sugar notes. Body is pretty full with good carbonation. Pretty enjoyable with nice dose of coriander but carbonation could be slightly more pronounced.

reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
650ml bottle pours a hazy straw color with a small white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is lemon with hints of yeast and orange peel. Taste is a lemon tartness with a light fruity and malty sweetness finishing a little dry. Light bodied with generous carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a pretty solid witbier that is balanced nicely and tasty as well.

tom10101 (6280) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle (650 ml). From Canbif box, thanks Paul! Split 2-ways with Minderbinder.



Appearance: Hazy yellow with a small white head and little lacing.



Aroma: Spices forward (mostly coriander) along citrus/orange notes, floral presence, wheat... rather soft.



Taste: Moderately spicy (coriander again) with floral notes, citrus, wheat, light acidity and hints of soap.



Palate: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Coriander finish. Light but nice citrus and acidity kick at the end.



Overall: Soft and easy drinking (thanks to the light acidic presence). A tad too much coriander for my liking. Decent.

Bottle from the strath. Pours yellow with a white head. leaves some lacing in the glass. big citrus and coriander notes on the nose. nice orange notes on the tongue. finishes clean. Really nice example of the style.

jbruner (5402) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2017
Pours a hazy yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of nice citrus and mild Belgian wheat esters. Taste follows, clean and well done. Pretty good for the style.

2.8
Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2010
Bottle. Pale milky yellow with scant white head. Light fruity aroma has a little pedio and banana. Soft palate is nicely granular. Nice flavors have good wheat malts, not too much yeast, and a good fairly dry finish.

3.2
CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2008
(650ml Bottle) 5%. A need season from the new guys? Great! Pours a lasting thin foamy head atop a highly carbonated, very clear, golden body. I cannot believe that this is unfiltered - it looks like a macro pale lager. Good spicy nose, coriander and orange rind. Fairly clean, mild nutty mid-palate but its got a pleasant Belgian yeast finish. A good alternative to those Hoegaarden fans but nothing too wowing for a snob like me. 6/2/7/3/14

3.8
presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2009
Pale yellow. Fluffy thick white head. Thick aroma that actually makes me want to taste the beer! Wheat, yeast and coriander. Soft lemon/banana with a steady table paper edge.

3.1
tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2009
Strong spicy orange character in the nose rather overwhelms any wheat character. Very light haziness to the pale golden body topped by a fizzy white head that disappears quickly leaving a fine partial cover with minimal lacing. Vanilla-like sweetness blends well with the orange character and lightly tart wheat in the fairly simple flavour. Medium light body with prickly effervescence. Perhaps a bit astringent. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle. Brewery Creek. Dec-08.

3.2
Gerbeer (4066) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a light, slightly hazy yellow with light head. Aromas is mostly coriander, with hints of lemon and yeast. Flavours are similar not really much else and a bit watery. Kind of tastes like floor wax smells. Expecting more.
