sergelutaba (67) - Alberta, - OCT 31, 2012
The pour is a hazy golden straw body with a nearly non-existant white head. Some short lived lacing rings. the nose is citric with a nice sweet wheaty malt, mild Belgian spice and a hint of banana bread. The taste is sweet and wheaty in the middle with bready malts and a hint of clove and coriander. Notes of lemon rind and banana. The finish has a light hop. overall, a good tasty wit, but nothing special going on with this one.

Yellow cloudy pour with decent white head. Nose of spice/clove with grain and yeast. Flavor is grainy with spice and a hint of orange.

Hungover (103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
A patio beer, crushable. Short finish, not a lot going on complexity wise. Subtle fruit. Wish it gave a bit more flavor. Decent!

AgentAle (1662) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
Aroma is clove, straw, yeast and citrus. Taste is light sweet malts, tart, yeast and straw. Light funkiness on tip. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains quite well.

cmacklin (1071) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a medium, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Sweet aroma of orange, coriander and yeast. Sweet flavour of orange, lemon, coriander and wheat with a mildly dry, yeasty finish. Light body with a watery finish and average carbonation. Refreshing. A good thirst quencher.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2016
Bomber shared by Christine. Murky golden with a fairly tight white head. Wheat, esters, faint citrus, kinda yeasty, medium-ish body, moderate+ carbonation, somewhat creamy, oddly buttery and spicy (?), something kinda vegetal, quite odd, almost dry with minimal bitterness and the same odd... fruity, doughy thing.

RhetoricalAns (920) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2016 Very clear and pale straw pour with a thin white head. Interesting spicy orange nose. Taste is similar. Thin light body. Very drinkable, wish it has a lower ABV to help out in this regard.

DeanF (2418) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
A nicely made wit beer that contrasts with the rather average offeringa of Fernie. Highly drinkable. Good wit notes with soft hops hints. Medium finish. Could easily drink a hundred more.

maley1 (1233) - Calgary, CANADA - FEB 23, 2015
Cloudy yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of wheat, slight yeast, faint citrus. Taste of faint lemon citrus, grains, orange peel. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel, higher fizzy carbonation. Drinkable but not memorable.

jonas (7399) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle. Light spicy easy nose. Cloudy yellow, lowish head. Tart citric yeasty base, medium light wheat malt base, dry spiciness, slightly necrotic, quick anonymous finish. needs a bit more oomph.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon, oranges and some spicy coriander and Belgian yeast. Taste is bitter orange peel, tangy citrus and spicy pepper. Good thirst quencher but a bit light and lacks the complexity of a true Wit.
