Granville Island Brewing Winter Wit Witbier at 6% ABV | 18 IBU (C$8.29 at Quarry Park Calgary Co-Op, 650 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 23-Feb-2018, reviewed 26-Feb-2018)

Appearance: cloudy pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: banana, coriander, doughy bread, cinnamon, orange, clove, black pepper. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (4/5)

Yeah, I see what you did there – it’s a winter-y wit. There’s a decent balance between the Witbier banana and mild “winter” spices. It’s not bad, but it’s not as refreshing as a straight Witbier. OK for  one off, I guess, but not something you’d necessarily want to do again. (14/20)
