2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Baran as #2 Wit. This is a cloudy golden-orange one with a small just off-white top. Some soft tangerines and oranges on the nose along with soft grains, corn and coriander. A bit strange, but not to bad. Itís big bubbled and just above average on the carbonation with a soft oily to watery mouthfeel. I get a slightly smoked flavor in this Baran brew as well. Much like the flavor Iíve had in many of their brews. Slightly wheaty with some soft hay and old refidged lemons. Something in these brews thatís not completely tickling my tongue. 02.02.2013

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Baran, Bergen. The colour is hazy straw-yellow with a medium white creamy head. A distinct aroma of pepper, coriander, hay and some basement. The flavour is more strange with soap, hay and some fruit and ammonia. Has a soft and nice mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A decent base in this ale but the flavour is a bit weird.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
On tap @ Baran Cafe, Bergen. A new local brewery in Bergen, this is so cool! :-) Letís see what they have in store. Pours a hazy light straw body, small creamy white head. Nose is peppery soapy coriander tones, hints of earth, grains and salmiac-ish chemical tones. Taste is pale malts, coriander, sweet wheat notes and some very disturbing tones of chlorine, cooked vegetables and earthy hints in a rather disharmonic combination. Full body, soft carbonation. Weird, and not in a good way. I hope Baran gets this one right (they are still in the process of developing their recipes and brewing techniques), as this is nowhere near what a wit should taste like - or any other beer, for that matter... :-P
