Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
An ode to our Dutch heritage, Oranje Weisse is a premium, unfiltered white beer. Predominantly brewed with un-malted wheat which gives it a hazy appearance we've also added two types of orange peel, some coriander, and a touch of anise. The result is a unique flavour combination of citrus and light spice. Our signature yeast reveals a complex aroma and slight tartness on the palate. We recommend serving with a slice of orange on the side of the glass to enhance this refreshing seasonal brew.

A: Honey yellow cloudy, some carbonation, huge off white yellowish head.

S: Offal, bubble gum, coriander, dry naval orange, Belgian yeast, light smokiness.

T: Light and refreshing light citrus orange again it’s a dry naval orange type, some bubble gum, plastic or wax paper, coriander, light smokiness, not getting the same Belgian yeast I got on the nose.

M: Light body, medium low carbonation, dry finish.

O: The bottle is bright orange and impressive, the taste is mediocre, certainly not this brewery's best brew but light and summery and refreshing.

473 ml can served cold into I to a st. Pauli girl mug. Purchased for under $3 CDN from the LCBO.

Appearance. - pours a a hazy golden orange coloured beer with one finger of white head. Some sediment visible in the glass and minimal head retention. Decent amount of lacing left behind.

Smell - some orange, a hint of lemon and plenty of creamy wheat.

Taste - orange and plenty of wheat with a kiss of lemon zest to wrap it up. Nice wit beer.

Mouthfeel - very smooth and light bodied, creamy from all the wheat yet not heavy. Moderately high carbonation.

Overall - very solid wit beer that is quite enjoyable, full of flavor and has a great weight to it.

500ml bottle, painted the same bright orange hue as that of the Dutch national team supporters. First appearance for this brewery in Alberta, I believe.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and even a bit creamy bone-white head, which leaves a decent swath of swollen rain cloud lace around the glass as it very slowly fades away.

It smells of neutered orange peel, somewhat astringent coriander, zippy wheat grain, earthy yeast, and some rather understated leafy, musty hops. The taste is more malt-forward, with the pale and wheaty graininess leading off, followed closely by the peppy, spicy coriander, middling orange pith, vegetal yeast, and faint earthy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is fairly laid back, and just mostly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and kind of hollow in its generic smoothness. It finishes barely off-dry, the graininess shedding the majority of its already limited sweetness, while the spice and yeast pull things in the opposite direction.

An adequate witbier, the standard extra ingredients definitely making themselves known. However, the hovering edginess kind of takes a fair bit of the air out of it all. Enjoyable to a point, but after the one, I'm kind of done.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type - 500ml cool lookin' orange bottle poured into a weizen glass

Appearance - Pours a cloudy straw colour, shines golden when help up to the light. On top sits a great big head, about 2-3 fingers. It dissipates quickly. A moderate degree of lacing is left behind.

Smell - Wheat and orange citrus with some spicy undertones. Not as much orange as I was hoping. Pretty average.

Taste - Really not as much orange as I was expecting. There's definitely some orange there, with come coriander as well. There are some light spices again, and some wheat as expected.

Mouthfeel - Very to medium carbonation, pretty crisp finish.
