it's a clear beer at hight fermentation. it's produced with spelt, and wheat. it'a fresh sour give from the bitter orange peel and white pepper. I think that in the bottle it's much better than in the keg, because the foam has a better yield and not having a great final sediment, the opalescence if perfect.

Served from a 750ml bottle

A: Fairly clear and then cloudiness developed as the yeast from the bottom of the bottle dripped into the glass. Nice one thin one finger head that left some lacing. The head retained decently seeing as most whitbiers i've had had a very quick dying head.

S: Coriander, a little bit of cloves, and some lemon peel in the background. Smells very refreshing.

T: Like the smell. Spices like coriander and cloves are made pretty prominent. Citrus is also available but leans more towards a lemon type flavor then an orange in my opinion. Reminiscent of Unibroues La Fin du Monde but in a more easy drinking fashion, meaning the alcohol is lower but also a bit more watery. Maybe a bit strange but when I really searched near the finish i could find a very faint nutiness.

M: Smooth and light with decent carbonation.

O: I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and would definitely buy it again. Maybe a bit pricey but It'd be nice to have couple in my fridge for the summer. I could see it pairing nicely with fish and salads in the summer. A good refreshing beer for the summer. Not overwhelmingly complex or strong.

Bottle pour for the 4th Annual LA Beer Week Beer Festival at Union Station in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and refreshing.

750ml Bottle from the Hull QC SAQ for $12.20

Appearance - Gold colour with an average size fizzy/frothy white head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Cloves, lemons, breads/grains, oranges

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains, cloves and lemon/orange juice/zest. There is also some honey and light banana.

Overall - A very solid and refreshing brew, the downside being the inflated price. If this was priced around $7 or so, I'd grab it again for a summer refresher.

330ml inverted chalice shaped bottle, capped and sealed, wine-bottle style.

This beer pours a cloudy, sediment-strewn, medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, thinly foamy, and bubbly white head, which leaves a pittance of specked lace around the glass in its brief wake.

It smells of white pepper, yeast, citrus rind, edgy wheat grain, and a bit of muddled savoury spice. The taste is zingy, somewhat sweet wheat malt, lessened black and white pepper, steadily holding yeast, mild coriander, banana chips, and fleshy citrus notes.

The carbonation is on the low side, just a wan frothiness abounding, the body medium-light in weight, and quite agreeably smooth. It finishes off-dry, and clean, the wheat, spice, and fruit all playing nice and friendly-like.

An enjoyable enough witbier, the expected Belgian style-proscribed flavours all there, if rendered a bit tamely overall. I can see this as being much more open and refreshing, when the environs actually call for it - my bad right now, not the brewer's.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has particles visible near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a thin off white head that quickly died down, leaving only a few bubbles around the collar of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sour wheat are present in the nose along with notes of lemon and orange citrus. The smell becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of wheat with a bit of sourness and notes of orange peels and hints of spices and yeast.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be easy to drink and interesting when compared to other beers in the style since it had a little bit of sourness.

This beer poured out as a cloudy yellow color. The head had settled by the time it was given to me. The smell was very inviting. I liked the aroma, lots of floral aromas going on in there. The taste had some nice floral notes with some light wheat flavors. The mouthfeel is very light and smooth. Overall this beer was very nice and taste very refreshing.
