Port Rexton Brewing Company Come Out Wit Ya Witbier at 4.7% ABV (C$6.65 at Port Rexton Brewing Company, 950 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 10-Aug-2018, reviewed 10-Aug-2018)

Appearance: opaque medium gold with one finger of creamy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and ring, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: mild, band-aid, coriander, grainy wheat, herbal, pepper. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky mildly spicy finish. (3/5)

The phenolics in this style should be coriander-like, or perhaps banana and/or bubblegum if you lean more to the German style (i.e. Hefe instead of Wit) but I’m getting plastic band-aid / burnt rubber over top of the coriander. I’m totally second-guessing myself on this, because I got exactly the same thing last night in a Lager, of all things, and She Who Must Be Obeyed says she can’t smell it at all, so… (13/20)
