3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m really not a fan of something this light but I tried it anyway. It was nice, definitely something to drink on a hot summer’s day, but I don’t see myself drinking it anywhere else. It’s got a bread feel in the mouth that makes it refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique July 2013. Hazy when poured into a glass and has a big white head. Spice and some fruit in the aroma and flavour. An easy drinking beer that would be even better on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light body; with a watery and lightly grainy/bready mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is a decent witbier. All around solid robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

Delicate citrus taste. My blunt nose failed to find the spices. Not crazy about it but then again I’m not generally big on witbiers.
