Poured into wheat beer glass.

A: golden yellow, hazy, nice 2 finger white head after hard pour. Seems to be retaining.

N: pretty simple. Has a yeasty lager-like stench, some citrusy aromas, nothing too complex or intriguing...

T: malty at first, lots of yeast and wheat. A bit of citrus on the finish but not a very complex brew.

O: this is not dieu du ciel at their best... They have much better stuff that is more "true to style" over any other factors. As far as Belgian white goes, other Quebec breweries do it better...

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a hazy texture. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A typically sweet aroma of fruit, spices, and malt.

T: Tasted of coriander, light fruit (lemon, orange), and a bit of malt. A solid enough flavor, but not nearly aggressive enough. Could have been slightly more powerful.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: While this is a drinkable beer, there are better examples of witbiers out there. Still, worth a shot.

341 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bright sparkly yellow with a light dappling of robust white choppy white bubbles. Unusually pronounced malty aroma, spicy lightly toasted grains along with a coppery tang, coriander seed, orange and pineapple, some almost grassy hops (!). Getting some other spices in there too, almost a little nutmeg or mace perhaps. Quite light and smooth on the palate, orange, lemon, and peach (!) creamsickle predominates and is accompanied by some white pepper, ginger, yeasty vitamin tablet, bubble gum esters, and pineapple juice. Flinty and hoppy for the style. Moderate carbonation and thin-moderate body. This is roughly what I imagine an old school pre-Blue Moon continental witbier to taste like, albeit more mellow perhaps.
