On tap at Mondial. Couldn't remember the particulars when I wrote this down, glad to see someone else had it!

Pours a hazy yellowish, some straw highlights, very thick and creamy white head forms and settles down to a thick ring around the glass, good layer, lots of lacing sticks.

Smell is really neat, lots of citrus, orange and tangerine, a bit of lemon and lime, wheat, lightly spiced, some yeast, a bit of honey sweetness and some biscuit/breadiness, nice.

Taste is similar, the citrus character is really unique, more orange/tangerine, honey, biscuit, wheat, lightly yeast, a bit of coriander and clove, floral, citrusy finish.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. A really drinkable witbier and the Yuzu is pretty cool.

On tap at Mondial beer festival. Cloudy white with a touch of yellow. Small white head. Soapy, sticky lacing. All the traditional witbier flavors but with a unique difference that I must attribute to the addition of Yuzu. Very interesting. Earthy and slightly funky. Belgian yeast complexity all over the place. Unique and delicious.

A wheat beer flavoured with yuzu, which is a Japanese citrus. On tap at the Mondial de la Biere.

Hazy yellow appearance with a finger of white head. Moderate lacing and retention. Tangy wheat aroma, along with the expected citrus. Good witbier taste. A slight sourness and some good lime notes. Some coriander too. Very refreshing. Light, quenching body and moderate carbonation.

Simple, but quaffable.

Draft: Poured a cloudy yellow color ale with white haze and large pure white foamy head with good retention. Aroma is dominated by loads of coriander with refreshing notes of wheat malt. Taste is also a nice mix between corianders with a quite heavy wheat malt body. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very well brewed for style.
