Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2006
Robe blonde très volée surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse qui s’estompe. Arômes acides de poussières et de levure. Saveurs de brettanomyces, de blé, d’épices, de miel et de fleurs. Les brett offrent une redéfinition de la witbier, j’aime bien!!

Boutip (6483) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
Bottle: Poured a nice yellow ale with some white hue and big foamy head with great retention. Aroma of wheat is dominant with a superb spice mix including coriander. Taste is smooth with lots of wheat and some well balance spices. Body is above average with a creamy texture. I was really impressed with this one overall and really wonder if I tasted the same beer that was rated in previous ratings but I must confess that I am a big fan of wheat beer to start with so that may have influenced my rating.

Slight gushing upon opening proves without further consequences. The body is straight yellow, direct stray under the sun and fully opaque and cloudy. Atop it all raises an initially tall white head that dissipates swiftly and with no rockiness. Pretty much no spices are noticeable in the nose, surprisingly enough. Instead, the focus is on the ingredients, so we’re immediately noticing the crunchy wheat influence and parrallel cerealic, sweetich malts. Slightly biting, very active carbonation accentuates a growing dryness. The yeast does not go very far in its identity deepening process, stopping by ordinary bready notes and avoiding exotic fermentation derivatives like fruit esters or whatever. Limited flavor profile to put it mildly. I hope I can expect a bit more character from the numerous italian brewpub wheat beers.

Any first impressions?
-A thin veil of foam dissipates over the cloudy beige, lots of yeast particles float about.
-Wheaty cereal and milky coriander simplicity make up an unassuming aroma.
-The chewy wheat foundation leads to dryness, as the faint spicing somewhat surprises if compared to most witbiers.
-The prickly, large bubbles override the cereal outcrop.

What if you dig deeper?
-Bready yeast and wheat comprise most of the finish.
-Shy leafy wetness is hidden underneath; not sure if it’s a product of the supporting hops, or tired spiciness.
-The back end is mostly characterless dryness.
-There isn’t much to talk about here; it is quite unimpressive compared to their Brune and Panil Barriquée Sours.

Bottled in April ’06.

Hazy honey golg hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty, wheaty nose, with a faint wild yeastiness accent, hint of spicy coriander and citrus fruit aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a zesty wheaty, embracing a subtle wild yeast character, with a fruity citrusy accent, and a faint lactic acidity, leading towards a wheaty, and shy flowery hops bittering finish.

KnutAlbert (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 27, 2006
Bottle, bought at the brewery. A fine Belgian-style wheat beer (brewed with coriander). Lively carbonation, a little spice/soapy finish.

The Etruscan (704) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAR 28, 2004
White large thick long lasting head. Deep golden, almost orange colour. Aroma is fruity, with citrus and spicy notes. Flavor is fruity too, citrusy with sweet tones, but yeasty. Finish is balanced and slightly sour. Light bodied.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - AUG 15, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2003 Bottled. Yellow, yeast troubled, darker than a belgian wit/blanche. Fizzy white head, disappear quickly. Phenolic (medicinal), sulphuric, sweat, skunky aroma. Light body, oxidated taste, no sourness. Maybe I was unlucky, but I bought two bottles with the same problems...

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2002
Cloudy, mustard yellow colour, thin white head. Sourish aroma with tones of amine and pickled hearing. Weak flavor with hints of wheat. Not a winner.
