2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexei and Raphaela’s. Thanks Yoav. Cloudy gold and headless. Roasted peanuts, salt and some spices in the nose, sour in a weird way in the mouth, mouthful of yeast and quite dirty. Full-bodied and very fizzy, peanut butter stickiness and aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange colour for a "double white"? Rather watery feel in the mouth at first. Bitter like the average pils. Taste of the average Belgian lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A white beer colored like a blonde beer.
Aroma and taste are linked, unfortunately I can’t find the words to described it. Not that it is spectacular or something, as the best deScription I found was :"it’s like a Maes, with more taste".
Not bad, but not awesome either.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beermerchants.
Pours copper-amber, single finger white head. Aroma of banana, vanilla, toffee, caramel. Taste is much the same just with lemon and orange to add, a sharp, bitter, dry finish, overall very sweet, but easily drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Robe qui ne ressemble pas du tout à une blanche : blondée dorée voir orangée, fine mousse blanche. Nez de levures, agrumes (orange), malts. Bouche étrange : malts et blé, levure (banane), peu d’amertume, légèrement sèche, légèrement acre. Texture légèrement rapeuse, qui accroche, bizarre aussi. Une blanche qui n’est pas vraiment une blanche, interessante mais pas vraiment mon style ...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4/1/2009 1:36:17 PM Bottle from Bierkoning. Murky orange body with milky head. Nose of chocolate and fruits. Quite a punch for a witbier with serious chocolate notes. Also citrus and pineapple in the mix. Refreshing and creamy. Gets a bit yeasty and spicier towards the end. Nice, as always, from this brewer.
