330 ml bottle served fairly cold into glassware. Purchased for about $3.25 CDN per bottle.

Appearance - hazy bright golden color with yellow hues. Capped by a finger and a half of head, that leaves behind a nice residual lacing.

Smell - clove, banana, lemon, orange, coriander. Complex with some yeasty aromas shining through too. Very inviting, especially in summer.

Taste - big bold banana flavor, but melded perfectly with the spices and the orange and coriander. Very complex as some bready flavours come through on the back half and there's almost a mocha-ish conclusion. Just wonderful.

Mouthfeel - well carbonated, lively yet light, alcohol is not perceptible at all, which is pleasant given that this is a heavy hitter as far as wits go.

Overall- quite simply the best wit I've ever had, that's complicated, yet refreshing, flavourful yet eminently drinkable. Recommended for beer lovers of all ages and expertise.

Purchased from the LCBO in a 4 pack of 330 mL bottles. Served in a Hoegaarden glass.

A- A murky, non-translucent golden yellow. A very yeasty looking beer. Good strong wheaty head that leaves lots of lacing.

S- Like the appearance, very yeasty. Coriander and maybe a light hint of banana present.

T- Beautiful taste, one of the most smooth, yet complex of it's style. Coriander and yeast dominate the flavour, however, there is a light banana, floral and citrus taste present throughout the brew.

M- Very smooth. It starts off quite carbonated, however, the carbonation dissipated roughly halfway through the glass.

O- Incredible beer! Definitely my favourite of the style I have tried thus far (and this is probably my second favourite style next to, you guessed it, hefeweizen). Prior to drinking this beer, Blanche de Chambly was my favourite in this style, but this completely blew it out of the water. At its price, its more of a luxury beer rather than an everyday drink, but as a change of pace treat, you can't do much better. An amazing beer that is complex, but at the same time incredibly drinkable. Highly recommended!
