Served in a chilled glass

Appearance - beer pours a slightly hazy ale colour with a nice white head. Head is about 2 fingers and quickly disappears. Nice carbonation stream up the middle of the glass. Lacing is present.

Smell - i can smell wheat, green apple, some spices and slight earth tones.

Taste - very clean tasting beer, almost 'dry' in a sense. there are wheat nodes present right away followed by the spices and finishes with the green apple bitterness. I did not find too many earthy tones in the taste.

Mouthfeel - added carbonation levels are impressive, beer really gains a velvety mouthfeel. There is a slight more earthy tone near the end and the bitterness levels increase. Still find it to leave a dry taste.

Drinkability - not a bad beer, something i am happy i tried but not at the top of my witbier charts.

Bottled on October 14, 2010. Lot 198. Tasted on December 30th, 2010.

Pale yellow color beer. Hazed. Nice creamy head on top. It sticks well to the glass. Carbonation is visible. Lots of carbonation. Head disappear quickly. Aroma of yeast, bananas with some fruits (citrus). On the taste, it is very fruity with some spices notes (coriander) and yeast. Carbonation is present in the mouth. Finish is dry with fruity notes. Light bodied. Refreshing as a witbier should be. A good beer.

Bottle from Marche Omni QC for 4.79$

Appearance – Hazy amber/yellow colour with a small size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains/wheat, lemons, coriander/cloves

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains/bread mixed with lemon and some faint banana. There is also a herbal flavour mixed with some clove. It ends with a slightly spicy bready aftertaste.

Overall – Very drinkable and refreshing. However nothing that would compete with some of the world class wit's from europe. It's a beer that is worth a try, but for the price there are lots of better options.

Taste notes from a comparison with 4 other witbiers from Quebec.

Appearance - Slightly cloudy if you include some of the yeast in your serving. Makes big bubbles and white head that comes down quickly but keeps a lacing. A bit on the dark side for a witbier, something around dark straw. Probably due to the malted wheat they use, as listed in the ingredients. Shouldn't be there.

Smell - Quite subtle but along the expected lines for the style: tartness, citrus peels and coriander. If anything else is there, I can't smell it. No hop aroma or flavor coming in.

Taste - Slight tart. A bit too much on the sweet side. Also some subtle coriander and citrus.

Mouthfeel - Lacks the carbonation you would expect for this style. Also a bit too thick when it comes to mouthfeel.

Overall - An average take on the style. Nothing really amazing here. I don't feel it has the refreshing power a witbier should have. Could have more punch when it comes to wheat tartness, citrus and spices.
