This is the gold standard of witbiers. The taste is smooth and intense, balanced and pure perfection. Is it worth 3X the price of Blue Moon? Yes. WillI keep a stash for regular consumption? No, but then I am a dark beer fanatic and only drink witbier for refreshment. A must try to experience the potential of the style.

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!
