(From notes)

Poured with a generous two fingers worth of head that held well despite the compulsory slice of lemon that was dropped in without warning. Hazy light yellow hue.

Mostly lemon in the aroma, but that is probably due to the slice that was in there. Other than that, there is a light graininess. Not much going on in the aroma.

Citrust dominates in the taste, but this is even mild at best. Pretty muted, bland. Back to the cereal graininess and a touch of fruitiness. MF is light, with some vibrant fizziness. Brainless and pretty much tasteless and bland. Nice try at the style, but nowhere close. You can do worse in Geneva, but that's not saying much.

Note: Beer was served with a lemon in it, so this affected the review.

Being an unfiltered wheat beer, this poured an opaque yellow with light lacing. A very fluffy white head had good lasting power. Decent lacing.

Aroma was quite light and lemony.

Taste was light, lemony and very refreshing. Perfect for the summer day outside cafe.

Mouthfeel was very nice: light bodied and good cleansing power. Very alive on the tongue.

Overall, I found this to be the best of the 3 beers at Brasserie du Molard. Very tasty and very drinkable.

Presented in mini-tulip glass

Enjoyed at Brasserie Du Molard while visiting Geneva, Switzerland.

A: Dull ecru. Half (pale white) fingernail head. Served with lemon slice.

S: Smells like a classic farmhouse ale combined with white jelly beans. Does not smell like a proper witbier.

T: The wheat comes thru on the palate a bit, but is over-shadowed by the lemon from the presentation. I took out the lemon, but that didn't help. Small hint of white pepper and biscuit, but all over-shadowed by the zest of lemon.

M: Light carbonation/body. Prickly.

O: Almost nothing about this beer reminds me of a proper witbier starting with the head and ending with the taste. Maybe the lemon just dominated everything else, but it was not terribly pleasing. It is possible the keg was almost tapped and/or old, but my least favorite of their three offerings at this classy Swiss brewpub.
