16 oz pint, on tap at the source in Red Deer’s most interesting tasting room. When you get a growler fill and pint for $10, you know you’re taking your chances. That said, this is a very decent Wit. Balanced, with a nice malt profile. Adding an orange is certainly recommended, but you are getting good value when you buy this beer.

It has nice head of foam. Pours light yellow.
Nice, crisp wheat ale with citrus and coriander notes. There is an aftertaste of too much yeast, but overall a good wheat ale.
Very good value for the price.
The label incorporates an orange. So the notes were expected. I like a brewery that follows through on its claims.

355ml can poured into tulip.

Pours a murky pale yellow with half a finger of bubbly white head that leaves a dripping sheet of lace as it recedes.

Smells of rather sharp yeast, unsalted crackers, lemon and orange zest, faint dusted pepper, coriander and soft leafy hops.

Tastes of more crackery wheat malt and not very subtle Belgian yeast, apple skin, lemon juice, cracked black pepper, coriander and more mild grassy hops.

Feels soft and pleasant. Light bodied with actively frothy carbonation. Finishes off-sweet.

Verdict: Recommended. Refreshing and decent for the price.

4 pack box of cans, as pictured.
This beer pours very cloudy, pale yellow, with a bright white head. Cream colored head is solid and long lasting, chunky lace left on the glass.
It smells of some citrus, lemon and orange, some yeast, light floral hops.
The taste has some wheat malt, more citrus and yeasty as in the smell. Some other wit character of coriander, pepper, a bit musty.
The carbonation is quite strong and fizzy, the body light and crisp, yeast aftertaste.

355ml can, the latest 4-pack of those 'craft in cans' offerings from said brewing arm of this Red Deer outfit.

This beer pours a cloudy, very pale tarnished golden straw hue, with a fistful of puffy, densely foamy, and mildly creamy off-white head, which leaves some spooky haunted forest glen lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of bready, lightly doughy pale malt, edgy Belgian yeast, prominent orange flesh and rind citrus notes, more subtle coriander and white pepper spice, and some relatively upticked leafy, weedy, and floral hops. The taste is more bready, doughy pale grainy wheat malt, muddled pome and citrus fruit, a softer yeasty astringency, hovering, but still duly pleasant witbier spices, and a hoppiness that is neither appropriate nor inappropriate for the style, if you know what I mean.

The bubbles are nicely rendered in their understated and coddling frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, the yeast and sneaky hops showing some gentlemanly elan, it would seem. It finishes trending sweet, the breakfast cereal wheatiness, mixed fruitiness, and yeast all coming to terms.

Not a bad wit, and well, I would know, having had a few of those of late. Good on Drummond for pursuing this vein of the craft beer tree, under the guise of 'Something Brewing'. I'm actually looking forward to sharing the remaining 3 cans of this offering with my visiting father in law during the coming week, as he has shown a predilection for learning the cause, and the can and easy drinkability of this one can't miss, in that regard.
