Medium gold in colour with a fair amount of carbonation. The aromas are fairly muted, but there are traces of yeast, citrus and wheat. The flavor component is way more substantial. There is a good balance between the wheat, yeast, citrus, bubblegum, and spice elements. I also noticed a touch of roasted sesame on the finish. A solid wit. (338 characters)

served in 12 oz. brown bottle.
label was white with gold trim and head of a white horse (cheval blanc, duh) in the center. kind of a 70s-era look to the label.
anyway, this is one of the best wits i've ever had. very very impressive and an all-around good beer.
pours a very bright gold with slight cloudiness. finely carbonated and soft, pillowy head.
lots of flavor here. the yeast is really distinctive. packs a nice, nutty punch. hints of coriandar and lemon are also present.
i highly recommend this beer. go to quebec and drink it by the gallon. (557 characters)

A fresh 22oz bomber bottle. Deeply golden witha lovely thick white head. Aromas are lovely and consist of various spices, coriander, sweet malts and spicy hops, citrus fruits and more. The taste is very spicy and filled with citrus hints. This is very reminiscent of both blanche de chambly and hitachino white. The mouthfeel is very full and nice for this style and the drinkability is excellent. An exceptional and under-appreciated version IMHO! (448 characters)

Usual yeast Cheval Blanc flavor which is a good thing. A bit of lemon in this nice white colored brew. Very refreshing for those hot summer days with a nice head when pourred into glass, not too bad for a style (Belgian White) that seems to go out of favour with brewers. (271 characters)

Pale golden on the pour, with a light head. The head gradually dissipates and leaves, with no significant lacing. Light flakes of yeast escape the bottle and play around in the rising bubbles. Nose brings light citrus - lemons, especially - a touch of grassy hops and coriander. Betrays slight orange touches, with following citrus fruits. Coriander is evident, but not as much so as in their Coup de Grisou. Pleasantly light, airy in the mouth. This is probably a great summer brew - it's not so appropriate here in the late winter, though. A good solid wit, however. (568 characters)

Straw yello with slight haze. Fluffy white head with nice retention. Citrus and spice nose. Light to medium bodied. Bit of lemon along with moderate spice and yeast. Crisp finish. A nice example of the style from an excelent Quebec brewery. (241 characters)
