The witbier offering from my favorite Canadian brewery pours a nice murky burnt apple juice gold, with a ton of white head. An aggressive pour might leave cakes of yeast swimming in your glass, but it makes little sense to pour this beer like a sissy. You want the froth effect, trust me. Aroma is bready malt, apples, citrus, spice, a touch of herbs. Palate is a bouquet of the expected coriander, citrus pith and fruit (orange, lemon, a bit of tropical pineapple which combines with a creamy mouth feel to produce a pina colada effect), and a subtle apple cinnamon spice. Refreshing but not boring, finish is sweet and herbal, with a lingering yeasty sweetness almost like caramel corn. Almost no detectable alcohol or technical flaws I can pick out. Carbonation is lively and right where it needs to be to lift the fruit and spice. An archetypal Belgian witbier and I echo the other reviewers who feel this is the standard to which others should be compared.

A: Golden, slightly yellow color; huge head!
S: Powerfully sweet, citrus/orange scent
T: Very light; Obvious low ABV; Extremely orange-y but the aftertaste isn't amazing
M: Soft bite which fades; nothing exceptional
Though pouring this gorgeous beverage looks incredibly promising, the taste and feel seem too light to leave an impression. The orange is almost overwhelming. The first kick is light but great, and the aftertaste is greater. It's all the steps in the middle that make this drink lackluster.

Hazy blonde color. Small head resting.
Rough spicing, coriander, orange peel, hints of sage, lemon rind, and tangy wheat.
Soft wheat, citrus peel, lemon, coriander, yeast esters, and faint green apple.
Deliciously light and easy. Carbonated moderately. Nice.
