Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2007
On tap. Nothing like a European Witbier. lacks flavour and texture. Little thin. Sweet. Hazy appearance. Slight hint of citrus, fruit. Sweet. mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a modest loose egg-white head and a decent wheat-malt & orange aroma. Slice of lemon mercifully discarded. A very passable Belgian witbier taste, but the citrus was sweet orange and the spicing was a blanked of coriander with a toned-down yeastiness. Body was lightly creamy but too thin & watery. Given a choice between this and a Rickards Red, or even some poor authentic Belgian wits I’ve had, I would have it again. But only under those circumstances.

I can only surmise that the low ratings are the result of some pubs not serving this the way it was intended to be served. For proper enjoyment, there should be a slice of orange on the glass that you then place into the beer (much like a lime with a Corona). This does a lot to activate the citrus in the beer and made it very quickly my favorite beer of all time. If you are not getting a slice of orange, or worse, eating it instead of placing it in the beer, then of COURSE you’re not going to like it.

I like to think I know this catagory of brews pretty well and this one was just bad. I’m not even sure what this was supposed to be? Hazy gold color with ample head gives way to a strange aroma and flavor of light citris, it’s overly malted, and with only the faintest hint of wheat. I can see picking this one even on a hot day. albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
Cloudy, orangish golden. Aroma is a bit of sulfur and some citrus. Flavor is metallic with some crispy spice and fruity undertones.

A passable unfiltered wheat beer... not really much flavour, and tastes a bit watery, but would be an ok choice if nothing better was available on tap... tomthompson89 (1982) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2007
cloudy off white color, decent foam, nose is musty and citrus. highley carbonated, citrus again in the flavor dominates, basically its Blue Moon with a different label shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2007
So bad, and all the worse for it being so expected. I didn’t notice any of the so-called spices that are ostensibly in this. It just tasted of cardboard and Metamucil. Flat, dull, gross. Looks the part but doesn’t deliver at all. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2007
On Tap-Pours hazy, cloudy white with yellow hues. Standard white foamy head. Nice coriander aroma, some leafy greens, banana, some bready wheaty notes, citrus. Flavour is banana creamsicle, some spicy coriander, lemon zest. Very smooth and creamy and better than I had expected. Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2007
Similar appearance to an average wheat beer, with a below average taste. I found it overly carbonated, and lacking the complexity of flavor that can be found in the style.
