Our Belgian Wit is a lightly hopped unfiltered wheat beer fermented with a unique Belgian yeast and named for its cloudy, nearly white appearance. This unique witbier is spiced with coriander and exotic curacoa orange to create a refreshing yet flavorful ale. Enjoy our Belgian Wit as the perfect accompaniment to warm weather and all that is great about Vancouver.

DuffMan (10774) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle, shared with davey. Hazy bright lemony yellow, brief white head. Sweaty aroma, with light citrus. Wheaty, hints of perfumey lemon and very subtle spice, lightly estery. Decent, refreshing, simple.

Aroma: fresh delicate nose of orange peel and spices. 7+
Appearance: mid light haze on amber gold. Lighter white top.
Palate / Taste: Medium lighter body. Delicate , easy going and refreshing. Frontal sweet with wheat elements followed. On top balanced spicing (slight clove and orange peel). Nice.

Bomber. Pours with a beautiful solid head and a light foggy yellow body - excellent. Aroma is soft malts and citrus notes, no cloying fake detergent like many others of this style. Flavour is an okay wheat and lemon mix, with a soft and dry finish. Very refreshing, this one is well done - underrated in my opinion. Sampled at 12.5C/54.5F

mcberko (19880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2011
650mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy blonde with minimal head. Pretty standard and uninspiring Belgian wheat, with light notes of citrus, coriander and lemon zest. Thin mouthfeel, with little complexity. Drinkable and somewhat refreshing, but that’s about it.

JHunter (772) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Pours a cloudy light yellowish white with a thick white head. Aroma is light cloves and estery. flavour is very light banana clove herbs would be great for a nice hot summer day

rosenbergh (11957) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2010
650 ml bottle. From Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Hazy yellow colour with small to average white head. Wheat, yeast, fruit and spices in aroma. Flavour is caramel, wheat, yeast, fruits, citrus, spices, some sugar and coriander. Rather good Witbier. Best GIB so far.

beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2010
Hazy yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, spices and yeast. Decent flavor of lemon, spices and yeast. The body is light with an oily texture and medium to lively carbonation.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2009
In short: A bland generic witbier
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed probably fresh. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a white ring of foam
In long: Yeasty nose with notes of banana puree. Body is slim despite a doughy texture. Taste of lemonade, bananas, some coriander and a little citrus fruits. The witbier style is not exciting to start with and this one is as generic as they come. Not bad, just very very bland. This is not a beer I would go out of my way for. Unless of course someone throws a bottle at my face.

MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Coriander, spicy hops and curaçao form a pleasant, refreshing profile for this lean and relatively dry Witbier.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the hazy and somewhat sunny pale yellow.
-The mouthfeel is well constructed and the flavors are very clean.
-Everything is balanced, but also quiet.
-This is a textbook example of the style and so will be hard to remember.
-Citrusy fruitiness is found within.

Bottle. Thx Mike!

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2009
Yellow, cloudy, tall thin foamy head. Yeast, orange, custard, icing sugar nose. Mouth is soft and somewhat creamy.... lemon and silt appear immediately followed by a sugary background with orange. Finish is dry and relatively mute.
