3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Immense lasting froth above an unclean, orange body. Citrusy, fruity aroma suprises me seeing that this is unspiced, because to me, it stinks of orange peel. Perfectly carbonated body, which elevates flavors. Orange peel spice, with juicy tangerine and tang flavors, citrus fruits, tart wheat and an authentic Belgian feel.

Nice large creamy head, sits on a murky orange body. Nice subtle dry orange peel aroma, some light spiciness as well. Good light and frothy mouthfeel. Very rich citrus taste complimented by some tangy maltiness. Slight sweetness and acidity balances this beer out quite well. Finish has some subdued minerals and earthiness that appear very late. Overall, a very balanced and well made wit that is saison-esqe, quite impressive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale yellow with a large snow white head and quite a few floaties. Produces nice lacing. Aroma is of yeast and spice. Yease giving a bananna and faint clove aroma. Fairly standard aroma. A fruity grape wine character. Active on the palte, tangy, with some malts but an overall feel of tangy fruityness. Nice dry finish. Nice beer, decent complexity. Nice ballance, great finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Absolutely cracking for a Wit. Dark yellow, almost browny orange. Aroma does contain spice - coriander, curacao, bit of pepper, also some alcohol and uncharacteristic hop. Richer mouthfeel than most of the style, and considerably stronger flavour. Not overly carbonated. Finishes with a little hop kick. Splendid.
