Microbrasserie Charlevoix "Dominus Vobiscum Blanche"
on tap @ Bateu de Nuit on 2 Octobre 2014
$6.25 / pint

Notes: Hazy pale straw gold body beneath a white head. Better than average head retention and lacing. The aroma is floral (almost like hand lotion at points), mildly citrusy, and like carrot cake.. ginger? There's less coriander than usual for a witbier so there must be something going on. It's interesting! The flavor brings in some fruit (orange, sweetened lemon and wheaty malt, and the spiciness remains with an additional hint of clove. Moderately bitter but dry n the finish with lingering spice. Medium bodied and effervescently crisp.

This is a super nice beer. It have been added with spice, and the smell is wonderfull. The taste is very very good also.

This beer is the kind of taste I look into a beer.

Continue to make it I'm a serious buyer, The only problem it doesn't get widely distributed.

Next time I see this one I'll buy it for sure.

WOW

This is a great wheat beer. The taste profile is unique with a very spicy character. The chamomile notes are a very pleasant surprise. This is almost in its own category as far as wheat beers go. Great beer.

Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is really surprising, witbier but with some very interesting spices. Makes me think of gingerbread but I don't know which spice exactly I get. Taste follows with the same notes, slightly sweet and spicy but still very refreshing. Body is medium and has a crisp carbonation. Very enjoyable, interesting and well made witbier.

Really really pale straw in color with small carbonation, somehow cloudy and a fast disappearing head. Smells good, but I cannot pin down what it smells. There's some coriander and fresh yeast for sure but other than that I cannot tell. Tastes. So. Good. Though! Lots of spices in the mouth, coriander, cinnamon, even pumpkin. Very carbonated too, definitely a good witbier. I thought it was gonna be an overrated one when I smelled it, but I was happily surprised.

Service: Bottle
Bottled on: Feb-4-2015 (consumed July 31)


A:
Pours a bright yellow that is pretty cloudy with big white head that fizzles down to absolutely nothing. No retention; No lacing. (3.5)

S:
Bright and citrusey right off the bat. Smells like a wit should: spiced bread yeasty character, some coriander, lemon/orange zest, vanilla, soft wheat/malt backbone. (4.25)

T:
Bright yeast character with some vague tartness. Pretty much follows the nose, the slightest HINT of tartness in the finish, pizza dough, clover. (4.25)

M:
Fizzy and pretty subdued, little over-carbonated, quickly disappearing finish. (3.75)

O:
Very good wit.
I have had it before and it was remarkably different look- and feel-wise this time, but other than that it was still the great beer it has always been. Regardless, I feel cheated since any other day it would have been wonderfully creamy with a head you can eat with a spoon. Maybe I'll update those categories next time I grab one. This rating is for the bottle I had though, obviously. Slightly tart, floral breadiness and sugar cookies throughout.
Easy drinking, substantive, refreshing, teasaingly spiced, an excellent beer all around. Will have again; well worth getting your hands on. This is doubly true if you are a fan of wits or wheat beers in general. I would put this among the best you can find, current bottles notwithstanding. (4.25)
