3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle from Barley Wine. It poured a hazy yellow colour with a big creamy
head that settled down fast in the glass before it disappeared completely. There’s
also a lot of yeast residue floating around in the glass. The aroma is mostly
dominated by yeast, but there is also some hints of citrus and honey. The flavour is sweet and tastes of bread, yeast, oranges(?) and some pepper. It has a lingering aftertaste.

Hmmm, lots of flavor which I don’t always get from Whites. This one even reminds me of a tripel more so than a white. Sort of spicy too. Like the 6%. Sometimes the big 750s are a handful if they’re too big. Very drinkable. Good Witbier.

Full disclosure, I’m drinking this on a Friday after a very hard week at work, so rubbing alcohol would rate pretty high right now. With that said, this is a really, really good beer, with a spicy, fruity, caramel/toffee flavor and a nice, dry finish. This is halfway between a white beer and a standard Belgian strong ale, and that’s a good thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle): Pours a light brown clear color. Big foamy whitish head. Floral aroma, some spices, maybc some grapefruit, but weak overall. Some effervescence. Floral, taste. Fizzy mouthfeel. Light. Spices go well with spicy tacos. Very light, watery taste.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Circulating yeast chunks in gold liquid under a huge foaming head. Light corriander aroma. Flavour is too light, slightly citrusy but not much. Watery, I didn’t like it at all.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice orange colour with excellent fluffy head but, like all of this brewery’s beers, you get big chunks of yeast in the glass.
Aroma is dominated by coriander, with loads of other fruits including orange rind, melons, apricots, some diacetyl and phenols when all the yeast is poured in. Some eggs maybe? Anyway it smells real good.
Light wheaty sweetness with an orangey flavour, but it’s far too bitter and has some soap and funk. Too fizzy also.
Smells great, but tastes pretty ordinary unfortunately.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted 14/03/2008. 330ml bottle from Rumble’s Wellington. Goddamn awful condition. The big airy disappearing bubbles looked sorry from the start. Cloudy chunky hazy gold. Off white head vanishes. Fruity sweet sweaty smelling wine and paper on the nose. Alcohol has nothing to hide behind and is very prominent. Tart fruity sweet winy beer with sodden paper in the mouth. Fizzy. Awful - tastes worse than the awful commercial description reads. I’m scoring generously because I’m sure it must be better fresh... surely?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (cellphone rating). Hazy golden with a light white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, banana and straw. Flavour is sweet again with the oddly placed hints of banana along with grain and some spicyness. Good dry bitter finish.
