It was tricky keeping the head to a reasonable level with this one. On one pour, it got totally out of hand, but by being careful, I got the second one perfect.

Looks pretty good. Head is nice, retention is good, and it's appropriately cloudy. I'd like to see more bubbles, though.

Smells good...fresh and mildly citrus.

But ok...this one really takes off in the taste department. It's a really really nice Belgian wit, and it has its own unique taste. Not overly spicy, but the citrus comes through with a rind-y grapefruity edge that would be super-refreshing on a hot day, when (in my opinion) Belgian wits are best consumed.

Mouthfeel is good, though I'd appreciate a wee bit more carbonation, but I can't complain. Other than that, it's just right.

This is scary drinkable. If I'm ever in Saskatoon in summer, this will be my go-to daytime question.

355ml bottle - nice to see an esoteric Paddock Wood offering suddenly show up in Alberta. Looks like they may have changed the beer style on this one in recent times.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber hue, with three finger of puffy, densely foamy, and fizzy off-white head, which leaves a few remote specks of sudsy remote islet lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of grainy, semi-sweet wheat malt, a not so subtle phenolic yeastiness, muddled banana pudding, flat coriander and white pepper spice, and weak earthy, weedy hops. The taste is bready, doughy pale and wheat malt, a still edgy and kind of medicinal yeastiness, wet banana chips, mixed black pepper and clove spice, and a still rather plain earthy, leafy, and dank hay-like hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite active in its probing fizzy and frothy natures, the body medium-light in weight, and not particularly smooth - that yeasty astringency expanding its pithy jurisdiction. It finishes off-dry, the base wheat malt carrying on and on, trying gamely to offset a growing yeasty wet cardboard effect.

While not a bad brew, with lots going on, it is a confusing one, as the stand-out edginess wavers between acceptable farmer's field notes, and the packaging in which this beer is sold. That duality unfortunately mars my experience, despite all the other heady German wheat beer character inherent in this brew.

A - Pours a cloudy copper color with a mountain of head. Stringy sometimes chunky unappealing yeast is visible.

S - Spicy aroma with citrus tones.

T - Citrus and spice. Decent malt backbone.

M - A little watery. Carbonation seems to be about right.

D - Drinkable
