Notes/Commercial Description:
We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

A single tallboy can picked up from the LCBO; there were displays of these all over and it's pretty obvious they were trying to clear some stock. Still, I am always down for a new witbier.

Pours a cloudy golden-orange colour with a finger of puffy head that is gone within a minute. A decent collar and cap are left behind. Doesn't look too heavily carbonated. Smell reminds me of Minute Maid, with some wheat and spices thrown in. Seems a little artificial somehow.

Wheat, yeast, and some lemon/lime/orange zest are basically the only flavours. A bit of coriander spiciness in the finish, but not much aftertaste. Thin bodied with high carbonation; this is as easy to throw back as any cheap lager.

A pretty lame witbier. Drinkable without much else going for it; a decent lawnmower brew. Not disgusting, just not really worth going out of your way for. I can't think of any compelling reason to get this again, especially when Hoegaarden is almost everywhere.
