Les Brasseurs RJ Cheval Blanc Witbier at 5% ABV (C$6.44 at NLC Howley Estates, 750 ml, best before 2-Oct-2019, acquired 8-Nov-2017, reviewed 27-Dec-2017)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: wheat, citrus, coriander, very slight hint of rubber/band-aid. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: medium body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly tart finish. (4/5)

Not bad – decently refreshing, with a spice profile that’s balanced well against the wheat base. I’m actually not entirely sure that I’m getting a hint of rubber, or whether it’s just the coriander, but in any case it’s mild enough that it’s not really a factor. Easy drinking and refreshing. (14/20)
