3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[on tap, Udine 2004] Slightly hazy, golden body. Yeast, hops and spices, softened by a fruity touch. Crisp, easy to drink with a good dry finish. A nice belgian ale; definitely reminded me of a witbier due to its yeasty character.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bubblegum & citrus aroma small head with soap bubble lacing. Cloudy yeast gold pear colour with stacks of dead yeast residue. Begins sweet and smooth gives way to noticeable sourness with some fresh pine needle notes high carbornation for me.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 8 May 2004 - The first impression, I had was of a sweet lambic infectitious, sort of taste. Bubblegum and citrus aroma with earthy notes flavours. Quite good mouthfeel, but very light given it dissolves in the mouth. Flat flavour/palate that needs more fruit and hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy with really poor head. Tinned apricot aroma, with phenols, coriander and non-alcoholic supermarket sparkling white wine. Tastes strongly of melons (ie. like Midori), with apricots, though it is pretty dry. Very fruity, but good nonetheless. I agree with Eczematic’s comment about it being halfway between a wit and blonde.

this was a lovely beer, like a blonde and a wit combined. malt, peaches, baked apple, spice aromas. taste blooms with peaches and malt before a quenchingly tart finish. silky mouthfeel. i could drink a lot of this stuff.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle conditioned, ZBF 2004. Hazy gold, low white head and moderate condition. Initial aniseed aroma becoming fruity tart but with a background wild yeast note that I found distracting. Some fruitiness in the mouth but the infected edge was still intrusive and lingered into the finish. Either I had a bad bottle, or I just didn't understand what was going on with this one.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong vinuous and fruity aroma. Has moderate bitterness and is a little sour. Lacks a distinctive fruit or yeast flavour, overall bland.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy light golden body with OK head. Weak fruity aroma with orange notes. Nice fruit, mandarin and spices flavor but way too watery and thin. An OK beer but needs some fullness!

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light golden color with a white head. The taste is fruity, bitter and kind of watery... Not the best brew from this brewer.
