3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pale yellow coloured. Unclear. Dense white head. Sweetness, orange, light fruits and light cloves in the aroma. Flavour is citric, sweet, bananaish and spiced. Medium bodied. Dry. Sweetish and spiced end. Could be a bit more flavourful, but it’s quite refreshing. The label is great humor IMO and gives an extra point to the appearance.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from K-Market Länsiväylä, Jyväskylä. Hazy straw color. The aromas of orange, grapefruit, coriander, pepper, bready wheat and hint of banana. Dry wheaty, orangey, peppery and herbal flavor with some woody-bitter spiciness. Oily palate, medium body. Good aroma but in the flavor there is a spicy elemement which I don’t like. Still, fairly good summer beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 2011-02-05, bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg, as Vår Wit, 5-3-5-2-9=24
Hazy golden color. Some aroma of coriander and vegetables. Weak body, some caramel flavor and too much vegetables. Bad.
2009-05-11, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 6-3-5-2-11= 27
Cloudy blond color. The aroma has some wheat, sweetish, and light fruits, light banana. The mouthfeel is quite dry, without a specific flavor, with some added spices, a bit peppery, and more bitter than a common wheat beer. In the final there is still a hint of banana, appreciated. Not bad but not interesting either.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy pale yellow with a firm white head. The aroma has a hint of banana, but spice dominates, coriander, and a touch of clove. The flavour is first of all refreshing citrus, with white bread, spice and fruit. Smooth and perfectly carbonated for optimal quenching quality. Had availability and price been a little better, it would be hard to imagine a hot day without a pint or two...

As Beer Here Vår Wit
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget, BB 12-01-12. Sampled on September 4, 2011
Hazy copper color, frizzy white head. Phenolic, Belgian yeast, some tin can and electrical wires, smoke scent, also some orange peel and sort of sweet. Acidic, spicy, phenolic, thin taste. Also yeast. Dry finish. Thin mouthfeel, some alcohol warming. Thin dry bitterness.
A far cry from what I had as Tia Loca on tap, too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle, and a nicely labelled bottle it is indeed, I ’m a bit of a Tintin myself. Hazy bright yellow, firm foaming pale head. Strong soapy & spicy coriander nose, wheat, lovely banana. Flavor isn’t as heavy on the coriander, there’s more white pepper, loads of wheat, spiciness, mild and nicely fitting sourish edge, banana and maybe mint, not that fruity overall. Sweetish, lemon soapy witbier finish. Medium bodied, strong and pretty mouthfilling carbonation. A solid Wit with little German notes in there, definitely a quencher.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It is unclear, warm golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of wheat, coriander, yeast and citrus. The flavour has sweetness and notes of banana, clove, wheat, oranges, coriander and the finish is slightly dry and spicy. It is a very successful mix between German and Belgian wheat beers, truly nice!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, light yellow beer with medium white head. Aroma is weird and it is like white wine and pear cider: sour and sweet perry. Flavour is more typical wheat beer, quite dry, some pears, yeast, sourness and some spicy. Nice and easy to drink, but still slippery and enough of body. Tia Loca is interesting beer that would need another taste before final judge, but even now it is very interesting beer, absolutely worth to try.
