3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow-orange pour with a thick white head. The aroma is lightly wheaty with a bit of soft spicy character. A little bit of lemony citrus over a touch of soft yeastiness. A little bit watery tasting, but it’s pretty decent.

On-tap at C’est What. Lacey after a good head poured. Aroma of both the wheat and the orange peal. Found it somewhat acidity, like an orange juice can be. Thinner than expected, drying finish, but overall a fine wheat beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009-07-19. Hazy pale pastel yellow with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty with modest hops, floral and grassy, bit of an odd funky/skunky character to it at first. Flavour has an odd biterrness to it. Yeasty with a bit of spice character it hints and pepper and anise, which comes off as an odd combination at times. Not unpleasant, but the flavour combinations are a bit jarring at times. Average palate lacks the fullness of a wit, but the sludge at the bottom of the bottle likely would have added weight had we not been fearful of it. Okay. We have some more bottles so perhaps I will try it again after resuspending the sediments to see if it improves. As it is, it feels less fresh than I would have expected for a beer consumed within a week of purchase straight from the brewery. Interesting but disappointing - I had high hopes for this one as a number of people had mentioned it was rather good. Bottle from the brewery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. At 2009 C’est What Fall festival. Murky pale lemon yellow with a large creamy lasting white head. Spicy/grassy lemon and banana aroma - the flavour seems a little unfocussed, less fruit and more grassy character .... light-bodied, soft mouthfeel, mildly carbonated and quite quick-finishing - it left no real impression, but decent enough.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very hazy light yellow with a soft meringue of a head. Aroma is sharp orange oil (peel an orange, then squeeze the peel into your face) and sweaty yeasty wheat. Tangy unsweetened orange peel flavour and crisp wheat palate, light mouthfeel. Finish is more bitter than dry, detracting from the balance somewhat. Spices have trouble shining through. Overall very tasty and refreshing, and closer to a true Belgian wit style than most.
