Bière de blé non filtrée de style belge. Derrière sa robe voilée, on découvre des arômes de céréales et de coriandre. Un houblonnage discret laisse toute la place aux notes épicées et fruitées de la levure belge. Houblon: Saaz. La Rivière Blanche tire son nom du premier village à l’ouest de Matane, Saint-Ulric, qu’on appelait autrefois Rivière Blanche du nom de la rivière qui passe en son centre.

yngwie (16819) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2016
On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. A small, white head sits on top of an unclear yellow colored body. Banana, generic citrus, some orange and lemon in the aroma. It’s soft on the palate, medium to thin and rather dry. Some hay notes in the flavor, with oranges, lemon zest, banana and a pale malt backdrop. Medium length fruity finish. A refreshing and quenching beer, but also quite boring.150611

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune paille opaque, elle est coiffée d?une légère mousse d?une courte durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt frais et des légères notes de coriandre. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est des flaveurs de malt principalement avec des légères notes épicés. Finale moyenne, avec aucune effervescence et idem pour l’amertume. Commentaires: Bière dégustée sur place. Interprétation classique du style bien réussi. Fiche technique Style: Witbier Taux d?alcool : 5% Température: 4°C IBU: 6 Houblons: Saaz

On tap at the source. Hazy deep straw bubbly white head. Spicy earthy sweet bread. Not bad for a witbier.

Quevillon (3011) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
Drank on tap at the 22th Mondial de la Bière on June 12, 2015. Almost claire straw blonde, small head. Raw wheat malt aroma, creamy fruit notes. Almost overwhelming raw wheat taste, but I do get use to it, nice cereal and fruit notes, semi dry finish. Very non traditional witbier!

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
On tap at brewpub. A hazy whitish yellow with a short lived white head. Aroma is fruity (oranges) and spicy. Flavor is orange, wheat, tropical fruit, coriander. Finish is herbal and spicy, lingering oranges. Light body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Fresh, refreshing and loyal to the style.

En fût. Verre de dégustation directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de blé. Apparence: La couleur est blonde très pâle avec une très faible densité de bulle. Saveur: Goût de coriandre avec une pointe fruitée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence de coriandre en arrière goût. (Rating #4545)

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 In short: A basic wheat beer with usual banana, spiciness and all. Basic example of this simple style..
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a large white head with good retention
In long: Nose is wheaty with some bananas and usual style spiciness (coriander, etc.). In mouth the beer packs some wheat, oily cereals, a few slices of bananas on a baguette, a bit of lemon juice. Mild acidity/tartness. Not much of the coriander, orange peels or other spices/adjuncts often used in brewpub witbiers. Only a light natural spiciness. Body was medium, not too corpulent for the style. This is straightforward refreshing wheat beer that offers enough flavors connoisseur while remaining easy to approach the beer neophyte. It is the first time in my life that I share a beer with my mother that we both enjoyed. It was nice sharing a pint a beer with my mother, but it was also a bit awkward, both of us should have been more honest on our eHarmony profile.
