Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Mill St Belgian style Wit is a refreshing beer made with a unique blend of ingredients. The soft texture and pale colour comes from the use of wheat. Coriander, orange peel and our special yeast produce the complexity and depth of fruity flavours contained within the glass. This beer is unfiltered. The resulting cloudiness gave rise to the term Wit, or White beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass (no orange).

very cloudy beer with a good head that doesn't stay around too long and leaves little lacing.

Spicy, citrus, orange smell with a faint bit of wheat.

light body, medium carbonation, very smooth with a bit harsher finish from the carbonation. taste of banana and pepper, very nice flavour.

very drinkable, great flavours and smell and is a true wheat beer.

Thanks Jay for this beer!
Served in a large tapered mug, intelligible code printed on the bottle, no apparent date.

Murky orange with 3cm of head (metric, get it?) . Not a bad band. Thin skim and very little lacing after the first few sips. Liquid is opaque with frosty edges.

Aroma is mostly coriander, sweet and lightly spicy. Basic wheat with a touch of sweet citrus too.

Flavor is mellow, wheat and coriander dominate, some minerally club soda touches. Slight bite to it, had two bottles, fairly drinkable.

Mill street has a cool retro look to their bottles and advertising.

Had out of the bottle poured in a frosty pint glass and served with out an orange very cloudy, with a decent smell of wheat and citrus with a hint of bananas. Not much head and limited lacing

Taste is Belgium Wit and not your American style wheat beer. Very tasty and very strong citrus flavor compared to many wheat beers which can be a plus or a negative depending on your preference.

Over all a very good offering from Mill Street and very enjoyable to drink. I would try again for sure

A hazy straw colored ale, a white head leaving little lacing and small curtains.

Smelling citric, spicy and yeasty.

The taste is mostly sour, lemon with some coriander, a dash of white vinegar.

Medium carbonation, small foamy bubbles, a dry acidity finish.

Too flat and sour.

Visual (2.5): Head, white, fizzles out, even with a robust pour. A slightly golden, foggy colour is a little darker than most witbiers...closer to a golden lager. No lacing with a few small carbonation bubbles

Aroma (3): Strong citrus aromas with other scents of yeast (dough) and orange. The wheat malt gives a slight tartness to the aroma; light but noticeable.

Taste (3.5): Sweet and bitter flavours on the pallet - orange predominantly - with the citrus bitterness lasting lightly at the back of the throat. A dull yeasty flavour also lingers after the swallow as well.

Mouthfeel (4): Very light body with slight carbonation coarseness to the beer. Very easy to drink, and refreshing, just as it should be.

Overall (3): Mill ST. Wit meets all the requirements for a Witbier but doesn't hit it out of the park on any of them. The citrus was a little over-powering in the flavour and aroma, and could have been balanced better. The mouthfeel was well developed, benefiting from the lingering flavours, and contributed to a welcoming drinkability for this summer sipper.
