Had this on tap fairly fresh, far better than the packaged product.
Taps a hazey yellow-gold color with a modest puffy cap which does not last too long. Modest lacing on the glass. Large bubbles, not naturally carbonated.
Aroma is very light but free of offensive smells...spices, citrus sweetness some light hop.
Profile is surprisingly decent for a commercial effort. Light sweet biscuity start goes dry midway where citrus, spice and hops dry up the palate, finish is dry.
This comes off like a light, blandish corporate version of Hoegaarden and if it has a fault it's that it may be a tad sweet. Still the best of the Canadian commercial witbiers.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a cloudy pale golden colour. Head is whiteish, bubbly when poured, invisible after a while. Not a lot of lacing. Yeah, really very meh.
Smells a bit like smelly feet, but a lot of fruit to it as well. Decent orange peel note, touch of apple juice, some hazelnut character as well, maybe some chestnut. Fruity; not bad but nothing special.
Orange peel from the start, quite rich and fruity upfront that bulges in the middle and sadly goes away largely by the finish. Bit of a spicy, aniseedy note late-mid with a touch of bread yeast, then finish is a bit grainy, slight coriander spice but otherwise nothing, really. Leaves with a slight cola aftertaste. Has some witty elements but falls a bit short.
A bit of body to it, but there needn't be. Bit heavy and gluggy, finishes dry but also a bit thick.
Stylistically OK, but really didn't do much for me.
