April 2, 2014 - at the Bar Hop - on draught. Lovely pour - brassy amber-gold with a smallish creamy/foamy off-white head. Floral/citrus peel aroma, with alcohol; reminded me of a boozy ESB. Taste follows - ESB and definitely orange peel - definite alcohol, too much really; Sweet, acidic mouthfeel - light body and carbonation, quick finish with emerging floral intensity and alcohol. Knock 2% or so off this and it would be a great summer drinker. neongolden (1860) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
(On tap at the brewpub, Mar 18 2014) Pours a deep burnt orange colour, lightly hazy with a loose bubbly white head. Aroma is dominated by sweet, sugary blood orange flesh/rind, also some spices (coriander/clove/ginger?), a little bit more malt than a standard wit and limited esters. Flavour again dominated by sweet orange pulp and rind at first along with a little malt, but a bit drier from the middle on with some spice notes, slight grain, orange becomes a little more bitter and rind-like as well. Finish is fairly dry, slightly bitter, detectable alcohol but with a clean sweet fruity core lingering as well. Body medium, carb very effervescent, booze not completely hidden. Didn’t have last years, but compared to some reviews maybe this year’s is a bit fruitier? Intersting wit, surprisingly good, but a bit too much fruit to want more than one at a time. Would be great on a sunny early spring day outside. mabel (9874) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
[5200-20130407] Tap. Ginger cleaner and fragrant herb aroma. Hazy, orange body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity fresh ginger continues in the flavour with a strange strong floral herb note. Medium body. Really odd but not in a bad way. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3 Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013

Tap at the brewery, pours a cloudy yellow, aroma was nice and citrusy and so was the flavour, pretty bitter as well overall drinkable. jjarovi (59) - markham, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
At the Rhino - very interesting, refreshing and also strong. Would love to have this bottle conditioned or on a patio in the summer. Complex ann citrus base that has many layers and a clean finish.

This beer brings me over my general dislike of the style. There’s a lot to appreciate here. Smells of coriander and light citrus. Very well-balanced. Pours golden with ok head and decent lacing. Almost in the realm of triple in overall feel. Finishes perfumy sweet and well-done. Nice soft carbonation. On tap at brewpub. jercraigs (10923) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
2013-04-07. Dark orange body is lightly hazy with a very small beige head. 3+ Strong spicey aroma of chamomile or coriander like character and mild fruit. 5++ Flavour has similar spice character, fruit, fairly bitter overall impression. Average plus to medium bodied palate is quite nice. Decent but the spice grows significantly as it warms, limiting my own enjoyment of it. More orange and less spice would be more to my own tastes.

Another surprisingly good Beer4Boobs, on tap at The Rhino. Orange right there. Not the edge of the Bellwoods, but still nicely distinct and drinkable. Lubiere (14196) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
A hazed golden wit with a thin off white head. In aroma, a sweet orange pulp mixed with banana esters, cloves, woody notes. In mouth, a sweet banana and orange, with root extract phenolics, and loads of alcohol. JoeMcPhee (9598) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
Tap at Indie Alehouse. Slightly hazy appearance with a lazy head. The aroma is quite juicy and fruity. Tropical and fruity with a lot of kiwi and gooseberry aroma. A little bit of coriander citrus but most of the spiciness is yeast derived. Fruity hoppiness. Really lovely brew.
