Single bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau.

Poured into a nonic. Hazy honey-golden in colour, with about a half inch of head that recedes into a thick ring. A bit of lacing.

Nose comprises of wheat malt, yeast, a bit of spice (coriander), lemon and banana, though quite mild.

A dry witbier, with mild banana, clove and coriander. Finish is dry, yeasty, and with a strong grain component - not altogether pleasant. Very mild, quite average tasting.

Lighter bodied, decent carbonation.

Nothing exciting here. Very dry and mild, and not quite balanced.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a medium pure white foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt with mild notes of coriander. Taste is also a mix of light wheat malt with some light bubblegum and coriander notes which are more or less balanced. Body is a bit light with good carbonation. Mediocre at best and not something I am likely to buy again.

This one is named Blanche only.

The beer is pale yellow color and is unfiltered. Very little head present. The aroma presents notes of yeast, some bananas and citrus. The intensity of the aroma is high which is good for a witbier. I get some coriander too in the aroma. The taste is fruity (citrus and bananas) and the presence of coriander but not dominant. A good beer for summer. Truly a thirst quencher for hot summer days. Thin body and the presence of carbonation which makes the beer a little crisp which is good for a witbier.
