4.43/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

11.5 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, slightly cloudy orange-yellow with a short white head that doesn't last long, Carbonation is heavy - on close inspection it looks sort of like heavy rain upside down. Lacing moderate. I like the look of this beer.

Aroma: Smells of lemon, orange, wheat, spices, and some faint grass. One of those rare beers that actually smells like what its ad copy says it'll smell like.

Taste: Oh my. This beer is the McCoy. (Sorry, le McCoy.) Big, pronounced flavors follow the nose. Lemon and spices lead the way. Gets more complex as it warms. More of the citrus and spice notes make themselves present over the course of the drink. Very nice dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Perfect depth - easy and refreshing, too.

Overall: I'm glad I bought this on impulse - it's a terrific witbier. I paired it with polenta, tomatoes, basil and kale and it made for an ideal summer meal. I would describe this as a beer to seek out - I definitely want to try more from this brewery. Would consider a visit when next I'm in Montreal. And that's all on the strength of this one beer.

Love to try new beers from them, even if not my fav style. It should work well for a super hot humid day like today though. Not sure how to read the date, it has a 5 and a 3 notched... May 3rd? May 2013? what?!

Ug, they're still using screw tops?! Pours a smaller but decent fizzy bubbly 1/2 finger head that fades at a fair pace, bit of bubbles streaming up through mostly clear golden yellow orange tinted beer.

Nose brings wheat and a big perfumey coriander and spice, very creamy wheat, little toasted note, grainy wheat like, but a light sweet malty creamy thing, with big perfumey coriander, and I really mean like floral spices, flowery like almost but not really chamomile like flower, bit of an orange zest note,.

Taste starts with a touch of sweetness actually, into malts, grainy toasted wheat actually, with some straw notes, little bready note, plenty of creamy wheat, almost creamed wheat like flavor, etc. Then spices again, big coriander, it actually ends up being the dominant flavor, with mild orange zest, like a clementine peel rather than real orange, and mild flowery notes again. It dries quite quickly, like a lactose kinda dry, with mild citrus zest and coriander lingering again, little creamy wheat taste too.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb but probably could have used a bit more, if it didn't already escape out the damn screw top!

Overall not bad, not usually a huge fan of the style, but a nice wit can do well in the summer. I liked the wheat aspect actually, little creamy, touch toasty like, etc, and flowery notes, the clementine like citrus was also nice, and coriander can be good when not too strong, although this came on way too strong IMO. Still not bad for a hot summer day.
