This was a nice witbier style, which makes sense with its name. Not too heavy on the cloves or other spices that we often find in American witbiers, but a refreshing, easy to drink beer. This is better than the brewery's plain lager that is probably more widely available, so if you see both, I'd recommend this one.

I bought a can at the lcbo in Ontario 500ml at 5%.
poured 2finger head into glass.
nice floral aroma taste is a hint of citrus with a zesty lemony flavor .
hazy in color with a light to medium bitterness.
overall easy drinking with a little caramel lemons and citrus flavor this wheat beer leaves a lace all around your glass as your drinking.
cheers.

300 ml white painted bottle, at Cardinal, Stavanger. Colour is typical wit: Hazy, very pale straw coloured. Moderate head. Strong aroma of coriander, yeast and some citrus, and if I’m unkind: even some notes of perfumed shampoo and hints of vomit. Flavour is VERY citrussy / LEMONY, notes of coriander too. A bit too lemony for me, but definitely a refreshing beer for hot summer days. Just a faint bitterness in the aftertaste. The chicks might like it!

never heard of this, didnt even know it existed until today, really cool stuff, was shocked to see it on a draft menu, had to get into it, ended up ripping three of them, its delicate, well refined, yeasty but in more of a saison type estery way rather than a spicy peppery complexion which can be common in the style. i also get a distinct valencia orange aroma and flavor to this, not sure if there is actually citrus in the recipe or not, but it seems to me like their has to be, soft and natural, neither acidic nor bitter, but really the defining feature in the finish, along with subtle pear, green grape, and even orchard peach notes, really compelling stuff. a huge two inches of pure white and lasting head on this, a muted luster but a very pale color, white wheat obvious in nose, flavor, and mouthfeel, this is earthy and sudsy and even sort of creamy feeling, also with excellent carbonation from the tap. this is a level above a blue moon type, more cohesive and subtle, more nuance, i love this yeast profile, and i reckon grossly underrated here on BA. a fun surprise for the first truly nice day of spring weather, and a heck of a morning beer. this makes me want to track down their main lager, am i missing something there? this is impressive!

Hazy pale gold with a strong head and lacing. Mostly Belgian yeast nose, a little spice & sweetness. Mild wheat body, I am not getting any orange or coriander which should be there. Thinnish body, feels faint. Meh. Hoegaarden & Blanche de Chambly are just so much better.

Hmm, this is an good Witbier...nothing super special though. The yeast flavor really seems to be pretty strong and there is no drop off for the finish. It is a decent bier, for sure, but just nothing that I would drink a lot of in one sitting.

Date on bottom of can was given as 10/19. The review score has been slightly altered in order to reflect its keeping qualities. To the best of my knowledge, it was kept in a cooler at 39 degrees at retail. I have no knowledge of how it was stored in distribution.

Look - Slight haze, soft soapy head. Head lingers a bit, decent retention. Carbonation visibly rising steadily in glass. Suspended particles settling towards the bottom of the glass (yeast or citrus fruit?)

Smell - Perfume. Not entirely pleasant.

Taste/Mouthfeel - Estery with banana. Lemony citrus. Slight sharpness towards the end. Finishes somewhat dry. Rather soft feeling on the palette.

Overall - Not terrible, and given the age it's managed to keep some freshness to it, although I feel it may have had an impact on the aroma possibly. It's a good budget witbier for the price.

As someone who just started reviewing today, I fully realize all my reviews are from someone who tries average bigger brand beers. So I do not like fruity beers, which is my flaw here. I do love Smirnoff Ices though. 4 Smirnoff Ices/10
