Beer Tasting - Quebec Canada

This beer was recently imported to Canada and did not hit shelves. I was lucky to get a healthy pour of what is the best Witbier (if you can even call it that) I’ve ever had.

75CL – Best by end of 2017. Thanks Tommy for sharing this bottle. Split 3 ways at just below room-temp. Was stored cellar temp but is a recent release. Enjoyed in Hill Farmstead stemware.

A – Huge cork pop, I was afraid of a gusher but I caught it in time. 2 finger off-white head, is a murky golden orange, jus a little haze.

S – This is the single-greatest smelling Witbier I’ve ever had. Very yeasty, a light lemon tartness, some very interesting herbal like rosemary, lavender and peppercorn aroma. I also get a really great orange fruit juice. Orange Peel, honey, very floral.

T – This is a really great beer. I get this lovely tart grapefruit, wheat body that is totally overwhelmed by citrus, european hop bitterness. I get chamomile, lavender, lots of floral notes and the juiciest nectarine. This is really something special

M – Leaves a very tingly tongue. Great bottle conditioning with a filling mouthfeel with lots of carb. dry and effervescent.

O – Overall, there’s so much to say. It’s possibly the best witbier I’ve ever had, a great mix of so many flavors with this salad herbal that really literally makes my tongue tingle. Lovely fruitiness and the yeast is so well integrated. This might be out of this world in 5 years. seriously.
