BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Molson Coors Canada
Ontario, Canada
molson.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A genuine Belgian-style wheat ale, White holds a depth of flavour. It's brewed with wheat and oats, and is unfiltered to present a natural cloudy appearance. Mild hints of ground coriander with dried orange peel mingle for a light spiciness that ends with a refreshing, smooth finish.

One of my favorite beer. If not the best one

You can drink it two way. Without the lees or with the lees. It completely change the taste.
Fun to try. Just before finishing poring your beer, stir gently the bottle and poor the rest of it into your glass. The taste is distinctive.

Add an orange slice on the rim make it even more tasteful.

I like it cold at refrigerated temperature, but I love it too, to the room temperature, the aroma's and the taste is well more pronounced. You can really taste the orange flavor out of it, a room temperature.

Love that beer. It part of the beers I buy often.

I also love the taste left in mouth after worth.

looks exactly like a wit should. Hazy, very pale colour, good head.

Smells like candied orange - light malty sweetness, hint of coriander, lots of sweet orange

Tastes like it smells - sweet orange candy up front, but fades to a very dry finish. Odd bittering - slight astringency. No yeast character or hops.

Mouthfeel is spritzy, yet slick finishing very dry. An odd combination, but it works.

Good drinkability, but a bit too orangey for large volume consumption

In general it's a good beer. You can find it everywhere and at a good price. A orsngy taste with a medium after-taste. It is cloudy orange just like most of wheat beers, but i think it is a bit darker than most. It can easily battle with micro-breweries and well known wheat beers. This one of the best molson products and i was impressed by this beer.

Cloudy yellow appearance with fluffy head. Sweet orange smell with wheat and a bit of citrus.

Taste is mostly wheat and various fruit, overall it's pretty light though. Picked up some citrus and spiced. Light-medium bodied with average carbonation. Aftertaste is dry.

Overall, this is a light and easy to drink wheat beer, but it's generic. Still, it's refreshing and it works.

Far exceeding expectations for a Molson product, credit has to be given for actually sticking to the style of beer rather than making yet another Canadian lager marketed as a craft beer. Cloudy appearance, slight sweet smell, with a light sweet flavor with hints of orange becoming more prominent as you drink. Refreshing, flavorful, and drinkable.

Poured a 341-ml bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - I love the look of this beer. Hazy clouds appear wispy in a yellow-gold colour. Surface head only with a ring of lace.

Smell - caramel, citrus, with floral notes over barley aromas.

Taste - citrus-orange sweet and malty, flavourful and unique. I like the tail end of hop bitterness which continues the swell of grapefruit-barley explosion.

Mouthfeel - very smooth. Low carbonation.

Drinkability - a couple of these are going down nicely tonight.

Had this on tap at the Maritime Ale House in the Halifax Airport.
Appearance: Cloudy, small head served with a slice of orange
Smell: Mild citrus
Taste: I really enjoyed the crisp, citrusy taste. The alcohol was not pronounced at all.
Mouthfeel: Quite full bodied. A good example of a wit.
Drinkability: I could have had a few of these. Goes down very easy. I like this better than either the Red or the Honey Brown.

Veiled straw peach color, almost golden. White 2 finger head lasting around 3 minutes. Poor legs and no visible activity.

Aromas and flavors of citrus, fruits, grains, corn, floral spices. Well intensified and pleasant rich taste of sweet orange and sour lemon.

Slick light body with average carbonation. Faint and short finish ending with a slightly smoky spicy clove like feel.

Overall : A good tasty sweet white beer with some salivating freshness. Better directly form tap.
