look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with white hue and a large enough white head with OK retention. Aroma of light wheat malt and citrus notes is OK. Taste of weak wheat malt and light zesty undertone sis a bit weak. Body is light with good carbonation. Short on complexity and drinkability is just not high enough to compensate.

3.91/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

330 mL bottle from a 4-pack picked up at the LCBO; best before March 2015. Generally speaking, I'm not a big witbier guy, but every year something about the early summer weather gives me cravings for them, without fail. Served well-chilled.

Pours a cloudy, pale straw-yellow colour, topped with one finger of sparkling, fizzy white head that disappears relatively rapidly over the next minute or two. A thin, soapy collar and a modest ring of lacing are the only remnants. The aroma consists of pretty standard fare for a witbier - grainy malts, wheaty sweetness, lemon zest, orange and coriander come through, with a light touch of grassy skunk.

This is a light, enjoyably thirst-quenching white. Lemon drop tartness provides a nice accent to the initial wheat and pale grain malt sweetness. A mild brushing of grassy hop notes is overshadowed by yeasty coriander and clove notes, which provide a spicy, drying finish that beautifully counters the tart/sweet notes of the first half of the profile. Light-bodied, with zippy carbonation that spritzes the palate with every sip. A little watery, but otherwise this is an excellent, highly quaffable wit perfectly suited for an afternoon on the patio with a barbecue.

Final Grade: 3.91, a solid B+. Vedett Extra White is a well-crafted Belgian white beer that I have no serious complaints about. Spicy and light on the palate - this is not a complex affair at all, but I feel that this style is more about refreshment than piquing the interest of your tongue. Worth a try for anyone who appreciates this style, and something I'll likely return to at some point in the future. And seriously guys, knock it off with the green bottles.

3.58/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

330 ml green bottle purchased from LCBO as part of a 4 pack. Cost is $3 CDN per bottle. Served cold as recommended into glassware. Advertised as 4.7% ABV.

Appearance - pale hazy straw coloured beer. Small finger or so of white head with ok retention time. Minimal lacing and the beer is too hazy to give details of the bubbles situation.

Smell - slightly skunked, almost certainly from the green bottles. Otherwise some wheat and lemon zest are the biggest aromas. A sweet floral aspect is also present as is with the case with many wits.

Taste - pretty mild and subdued, but some sweet breads flavours are present as well as a lemon zest soda like mixture. A bit of a creamy taste as well. Works well together.

Mouthfeel - fairly highly carbonated, light body to the point of being extremely light, and moderately dry finish. Pretty good here.

Overall - while it doesn't live up to the some of the namesake created by this brewery (read Duvel) this is a pretty decent witbier, that is very light and refreshing. For those looking for a more significant witbier, look elsewhere, but this comes recommended and certainly wouldn't turn it down this time of year.

330ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $3

Appearance - Yellow colour with a small size fizzy white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for only a few minutes.

Smell - Banana, breads/grains, clove, lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste lemons, cloves, bananas, and some breads/grains. There is also a bit of a orange zest flavour.

Overall – Refreshing and easy to drink. Not something to go out of your way for, but I'll have no trouble working my way through a 4-pack.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass in Shanghai.

A; The beer is a bright hazy lemon color. Head is pure white, 2 fingers, and stays an OK amount.

S: Nice spicy nose with lots of citrus peel. Some yeasty bready malt in there. Solid overall.

T: Very citrusy with a good amount of balancing malt in there. Spicy character in the middle with coriander and citrus peel coming through.

F: Very carbonated but refreshing.

Overall a pleasant if basic beer. Nothing really stands out but the brew has a great refreshing character. OK overall.

Serving type: on-tap
