Hazy and a golden-straw colour. A decent bright-white head produces some rocky lacing.

Nose is of banana, lots of ginger, a little smoke and some definite mustard character. Like a banana hot dog with ginger on it. Strangely enough, it works somehow. How does Dieu de Ciel do it?

Taste parallels the nose: ginger, smoke, mustard and some weizen banana. Strange but in a cool way.

Nice full body with medium carbonation.

It is drinkable though I wouldn't ever want more than one at a time. I could never drink this regularly but it's a cool experiment. Worth sampling just to try something different if you happen to run into it.

Described on the blackboard as a Wit with ginger and mustard seed.

Appearance: Murky orange, it was translucent near the bottom and more opaque on the way up, but that could have just been the glass...The initial full inch head crashed down into little white islands with the cling on the class acting as rainclouds.

Smell: Wheat comes at you first, followed by the wit yeast with the bubblegum and the coriander and maybe a bit of white pepper, unless it was the mustard seed.

Taste: Creamy smooth and refreshing (not that we need to be refreshed here in Québec at this time of year!), the mustard seed taste is present in the finish to give it a dry, abruptness that I liked. Didn't really notice the ginger anywhere, it must have gotten lost somewhere with the wheaty backbone and spicy yeast flavors.
