Notes/Commercial Description:
La Mékinoise est notre bière blanche d'inspiration belge. Contrairement à la majorité des bières composées d'orge à 100%, la blanche est une bière de blé à 40%. Le reste est de l'orge. Notons que le goût qui domine provient de la souche de levures utilisées. Cette souche goûteuse de levures est un des traits caractéristique des bières belges. On a qu'à penser aux bières d'Unibroue qui ont toutes un goût épicé similaire. Ceci est dû à l'utilisation d'une même souche de levure belge. En bref, la Mékinoise est une bière douce et rafraîchissante où les saveurs de blé, d'épices, d'agrumes et des levures s'équilibre entre elles. D'ailleurs, des grains de coriandre et du curaçao (écorces d'oranges amères) sont ajoutés à la recette, un classique chez les bières blanches.

Bottle: Poured a light yellow with white haze ale with a medium size pure white foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of wheat with light bready yeast ester and some coriander. Taste is a nice mix between some thin wheat malt and some coriander and orange peel notes with solid ester form the yeast and a light tart finish. Body is definitely a bit thin but carbonation is good. Not a good staple of the style but I still quite enjoyed that one.

5oz on-tap degustation glass directly at A La Fût brewery in Saint-Tite

A - Bright yellow gold color, with a small white head, bit cloudy but not as a belgian witbier

S - Mild pale malt nose, Honey, sweet corn note, hint of wheaty and citrus fruity in the aroma

T - With a zesty, wheaty character with a faint of light flowery hop, acidic hint in finish

MF - Light-bodied palate, a bit watery

D - I don't have the feeling that I'm drinking a witbier, not really in the style, a good beer althought

2.91/5  rDev -11.6%

A: Light in color with a mild haze to it. Two fingers of head that retained itself for a bit and left behind small touches of lacing.

S: I get a lot of clove. Smells almost more similar to a Hefe. Clove character is really overdone IMO.

T: Oh my god the clove flavor is strong. It tastes something like an overly phenolly hefe. I don't get the coriander or slight tinge of bitter curacao of a traditional Wit, instead I am overwhelmed with clove. A bit of banana begins to appear as the beer warms slightly. Slight malty sweetness.

M: Crisp and refreshing. Appropriate body for the style along with carbonation.

O: Not really my deal. I still like the brewery a lot but this was really a bad example of the style with overdone clove, no real apparent spice character. It tastes more like an awkward overly phenolic saison/hefe hybrid. Not awful but not worth the money and I wouldn't care to have another.
