I tried this in a Belgian Beer Bar in Peterborough Ontario, of all places. Price was $6.95
It was served in it's own labled Kolsch style glass. Nice touch. The glass was chilled, but not frosted. Appearance: pale gold cloudy, with a thin head.
Smell: flour, citrus, light hops
Taste: very mild wit. Lemon citrus otes. Some other flavours are hinted at, but it's not complex. I didn't try to sort them out. Just drink the beer and get on with it.
Mouthfeel: smooth, creamy, light effervesence.
Drinkability: very refreshing. for fans of the Wit stlye, this is a must try.
Serving type: bottle

Sticky white lacing that persists. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness and some sediment. A flashlight revealed more sediment in bottom of can trough so I poured some beer back into can and vigorously swirled.
Aroma of bread and oranges with a predominant yeast overtone. Actually smells like orange flavored dough rising.
Taste is fresh baked bread with malty sweet orange zest. The finish has a slight metallic twang, presumably from the can. Perhaps the most yeasty, bready witbier to date. The yeast aroma persists throughout the session while the metallic note fades into non-existence. There is a pleasant, lingering orange oil finish after several minutes.
For yeast lovers this is a superb witbier that achieves near perfection, at least for my palate.
