4.33/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Purchased this 750 for $7.60 at Colonial (not including the 20% discount for a mix case).

Appearance: a bright gold, a lot more yellow than the pale straw which most witbiers appear. Big foamy head of white. Looks terrific.

Smell: zesty lemon and corriander, citrus.

Taste: more citrus flavor than most beers of this style which lends this wit to be a little more on the tart side.

Mouthfeel: effervescent, medium bodied, refreshing.

Drinkability: This is a quaffable beer no doubt, a great spring/summer session beer at 4.8%. Interesting and enjoyable enough to continually re-visit.

3.73/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

750 ml bottle served fairly cold into glassware. Purchased from LCBO for $9.20 CDN. Here's hoping this wit is worth it.

Appearance - even a gentle pour yielded inches of white froth resting delicately upon a light and hazy golden beer with just a few orange hues. Incredible lacing left behind and the frothy white head lasts for a good long while. Spectacular looking beer.

Smell - big fruit nose combined with some Belgian yeasts, more similar to smell to a saison than a traditional wit. Quite fruity with some peach and pear as well as some spiciness.

Taste - light and tangy with a healthy helping of Belgian yeast, with some bitterness that comes through with some peach and pear flavor. Some earthiness as well. Tasty but to me this is closer to a low ABV saison than a wit. Quite a bit of orange flavor in this as well.

Mouthfeel - very lively carbonation, smooth feel and dry vinous finish.

Overall - certainly tasty and worth trying especially if you are a saison or wit fan but for the price I will probably pass on this next time.

3.9/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle into nonic pint. bottled on january 21, 2014. consumed on july 25, 2014

a: fully cloudy pale yellow. three fingers of frothy, bubbly, web-like head

s: a nice banana scent up front, then oak, spices, pineapple, lemon, and sour funk

t: tart lemon, wheaty malt, orange, funk, pineapple, oak, coriander, and banana, in that order. has a really dry finish with lingering oak, malt, and slight funk flavours

m: really harsh carbonation right when it hits the tongue, could be toned down a bit. light-bodied

o: a tasty and complex beer with lots of interesting flavours. finishes a bit too dry and i'm not a fan of the bubbly mouthfeel, but other than that, great stuff
