Tastes more like an American wheat than a belgian wit. Not as much of the coriander and orange peel as I’d like. Still, it was appealingly mild, dry and fresh. Tried with the parents and Anne in 2017.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with hints of grass and malts. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A decent brew for the style, but nothing really stands out.

Very light yellow colour. Hazy appearance. A bit of tamarind and cilantro mixed in with a fresh and fruity citrus.

Poured from the tap. Hazy pale yellow with minimal white head. Mild wheat and citrus. Quite weak tasting.

Light and filtered clear wheat ale. Clean finish and not as heavy as a traditional wheat ale. Very faint fruity aroma.

Nutty grassy aroma not much. Light body. Taste is pretty light and cerealy. Not a great witbier.

patricks110 (2659) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
A mild mannered brew overall. Pours a bright golden orange with a finger of pure white head. Mild spiced notes of clove and coriander blend well with crisp wheat malt. Nice balance and clean finish overall.

Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a cloudy orangish yellow with a huge white fluffy head and lots of lace. Aroma of wheat, lemon, orange and spicy coriander not much Belgian yeast presence. Taste is lemony, wheat, spicey coriander and a dry finish. Overall just not a very good witbier a d rather disappointed by this offering.
