2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Old Grove location. Can’t believe I’ve never rated this more common brew. Super unfiltered cloudy pale white/yellow pour with huge sticky white head. Nose is yeasty lemonade. Taste is not as good as nose. Tart odd citrus to not much better. Hints of burnt plastic. Maybe not a good batch.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
L: pours a hazy straw with a half finger of white head.
S: really gentle aroma of wheat and orange, I struggle to get much more out of it.
T: light coriander spice up front which glides smoothly into quite an aqueous wheat and citrus flavour.
F: the flavour falls away pretty quickly but there’s a lingering spritz and spice.
O: there’s a nice balance to it and it could quench well on a hot day, but it feels a bit entry-level and tame.

Not sure what’s not to like, this is clean and crisp with a lovely amount of both tartness and lemon testiness, also it looks great, hazy yellow with a decent white firm persistent head, and great lacing. A lovely refreshing beer by any measure.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out of the bottle a cloudy blonde. 4ºSRM.
Nose is yeasty, wheat, and bread dough. There is an aroma that is a little sour and like a wet cigar, with a brief component of smoke. A little bit like stale cigarette smoke.
The mouthfeel is light, watery and carbonated. The palate is dominated by flour, dough and water biscuit. No hops.
Finish is a little flat and abbreviated.
A good light swig for accompaniment but not very interesting even as a wit. Easily the weakest link in the anchor chain...WTF Ballast??!!

Can shared poured a cloudy yellow with white head that doesn’t last long. Typical wit aroma, medium spice nose some orange in there as well. The flavor holds true, seems to be light on the body but the wit yeast and spice all seem to be in line. Just if the body was s little more this would be great.

2015 bottle. Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with a soda-like white head. Smell is pretty plain, some yeast and wheat. Taste is also mild: some sweetness, faint hint of banana, maybe a little spice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Brewdog.com. Drunk from the can on the train so no comment on appearance. Aroma is spicy. Taste is a slightly over-spiced wit with moderate citrus, yeast and some banana. Nice but has a strange metallic aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy gold. Outstanding head volume, very poor lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of coriander with hints of wheat coupled with orange.
Heavy light body with a bit of smoothness in the texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish.
The outstanding flavor profile is a bit weak on intensity, fairly complex and perfectly balanced. It begins with a moderate sensation of slightly spicy coriander that adds orange undertones as it progresses towards the middle. The middle produces a balancing biscuit that just hints at sweetness. The finish is a slow fade of subtle orange.
