3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle pour@5e Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse - FR. Dirty beige-yellow pour with no apparent foam texture, yeast action or body: the aesthetics of the bottle design might compensate for the rather dull pour here. Heavily spiced aroma of coriander and chamomile, peach pit and pear juice. Taste sees a linear, diluted fruit juice version of same, topped off with some extra vanilla and an aspartamish finish. Overly "creative"/hyperactive Italian take on an innocent Wit/Blanche.

Gyllen med et hvit skum. aroma av hvete, krydder og sitrus. Smaken følger aroma, men her er det mer aprikos og fersken.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy, semi-translucent apricot with a decent, if effervescent, eggshell head. Crisp, malty aroma has notes of pear and banana. Flavor is malty and fruity, crisp and refreshing, if not complex. Texture has average viscosity but good fizz. Love the charming little bottle - OK if all you need is a quick snort of social lubricant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A classic in the northern Italian beer revival, named after the brewer’s son, with the underlying thought that witbier is even good for children... An experimental twist on the Belgian witbier style, with orange and grapefruit juice and refermented with a champagne yeast. Snow white, loose, dissolving head on a pale blond, misty robe with greenish hue. Interesting aroma of figs, limoncello, coriander, lavender, orange peel, aniseed, freshly cut pear, apricot, vanilla; taste a light fruitiness and sweet spiciness, freshly sourish accent, sweet lemons, light and very refreshing. Baladin clearly understands the essence of the witbier genre and this expansion of the genre is righteously famed.

Bottle @LaBirreria. Pours pale yellow with fast disappearing white head. Wheaty aroma, citrus peel. Taste wheaty, bit watery, little citrus.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Camomile floats atop this wheat beer’s creamy currents, leading to light citrus accents and much refreshment.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the cloudy beige.
-The aroma and flavour profile may be linear, but they are very effective.
-The finish is soft, only faintly hoppy and herbal.
-Like many of their beers, this is very Dogfish Head-like. Creative, a penchant for sweetness, unusual ingredients, etc.
