3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle LCBO, pours very cloudy opaque, small lingering white head. Aroma is faint hint of orange peel not very noticeable though as I thought before buying it would be, this is on par with other wheat beers. It is a little more bitter than Hoegarrden but very similar overall to that. sort of a small bitter finish. Overall not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not what I was hoping for when iím looking to enjoy a belgian witbier. I found the orange somewhat overpowering, and not in a pleasaent way (almost like biting into a peel and chewing). Color was nice though, aroma was light and fragrant as well. A little over carbonated tasting as well. Overall, not something I would purchase again.

Not a great witbier, but passable. Didnít get a lot of orange (or anise) from this. Pretty subtle. Sweet wheat is present but even that is not packing a punch. Stick with Hoegaarden.

A solid Weisse beer. Pours yellow with nice citrus aromas. Flavors are orange, anise and some coriander. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tries this beer last year and remember I like it, even though I apparently didnít rate it. Pours a cloudy blond, just like a good wit, with a finger of fluffy white head. The coriander comes though on the nose, with a little skunk in the soft wheaty malt. The taste is all about the coriander and that "tiny bit of anise" is defiantly there. Iím missing a lot of the orange, but that doesnít really matter. Getting a hint of vanilla, and a little skunk, but itís not a bad thing. (Oddly enough.) Solid wit, and unique enough to get my approval.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with a dense white head. Aromas of orange and coriander with a touch of yeast. Flavour is sweet with mostly orange and coriander, with some yeast and a hint of anise. A nice flavourful wit, refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample. Pale gold with a bit of haze and fizzy carbonation. Aromas are coriander and soap heavy, with a bit of banana in the background. A bit hefeweizen like in the mouth with vanilla and banana elements mixing with the herbal and spice notes. Slightly astringent finish with a mineral-thin body. Not bad overall, but the mouthfeel could be improved.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clean and fruity hefe with tons of fruity notes. Pours a hazy, foamy golden mess with a ton of head. The nose is quite sweet and fruity with light spiced notes and splashes of citrus fruits. Mild mannered flavour profile with light fruity esters. Well balanced but a tad boring.
