A Belgian-style wheat beer with hints of coriander. Light and refreshing, with or without a slice of orange.
Named after the small community in rural Manitoba started by Belgian immigrants in 1892. The parish was so named because its first priest, Father Gustave Willems, came from the capital of Belgium.
“Medium gold in colour and slightly hazy with a fine white head, the nose on this Belgian-style witbier brings bread dough, fresh malt, a whiff of banana candy and a slightly saline/briny note that’s compelling. It’s dry and light-bodied, with a brief punch of acidity that works well with the light salty note as well as the bright effervescence; a secondary creamier note emerges with malty, banana candy flavours before a slightly peppery finish. The relatively modest 4.5 per cent alcohol is just right here.” Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson, Winnipeg Free Press
“This Belgian-style wheat beer, pale gold and hazy in appearance, is brewed up with a touch of coriander. The herbal note is apparent on the nose, and is well-balanced with bread dough, clove and banana candy aromas. It’s mainly dry and light-plus bodied, with the bread dough, coriander and fresh malt notes showing well and the slightest peppery hint underneath it all. At 4.5 per cent alcohol, it’s right where you want a summer wheat beer to be. 4/5” Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson, Winnipeg Free Press
