Poured into wheat beer glass.

A: golden yellow, hazy, nice 2 finger white head after hard pour. Seems to be retaining.

N: pretty simple. Has a yeasty lager-like stench, some citrusy aromas, nothing too complex or intriguing...

T: malty at first, lots of yeast and wheat. A bit of citrus on the finish but not a very complex brew.

O: this is not dieu du ciel at their best... They have much better stuff that is more "true to style" over any other factors. As far as Belgian white goes, other Quebec breweries do it better...

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a hazy texture. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A typically sweet aroma of fruit, spices, and malt.

T: Tasted of coriander, light fruit (lemon, orange), and a bit of malt. A solid enough flavor, but not nearly aggressive enough. Could have been slightly more powerful.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: While this is a drinkable beer, there are better examples of witbiers out there. Still, worth a shot.

341 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bright sparkly yellow with a light dappling of robust white choppy white bubbles. Unusually pronounced malty aroma, spicy lightly toasted grains along with a coppery tang, coriander seed, orange and pineapple, some almost grassy hops (!). Getting some other spices in there too, almost a little nutmeg or mace perhaps. Quite light and smooth on the palate, orange, lemon, and peach (!) creamsickle predominates and is accompanied by some white pepper, ginger, yeasty vitamin tablet, bubble gum esters, and pineapple juice. Flinty and hoppy for the style. Moderate carbonation and thin-moderate body. This is roughly what I imagine an old school pre-Blue Moon continental witbier to taste like, albeit more mellow perhaps.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass, beer is a cloudy blond yellow, small initial head but decent lacing that sticks around.

S - a hint of coriander initially, lemon, lots of wheat character, smooth prickly spice character, pretty zesty, with a slight tartness.

T - fairly typical, a light wheaty creaminess, with an orange and spice character, tart yeasty character, light bitterness, gets a bit more full and creamy to the end. Some present light zestiness to it, light start then more yeastiness comes through, a bit more earthy bitterness on the finish.

M - light to moderate bodied, quite a light and refreshing character. Then more of the spicey coriander and peppery yeast comes in, yet a nice balanced beer with a coating drying finish. Moderate carbonation.

An enjoyable wit, light and refreshing with a sizeable spice character and yeast, good balance of all the elements, it all plays fairly nicely together, smell is a bit restrained, and it is a zesty and refreshing summer session, a bit of a cloying character right before the finish, decent beer.
