3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
Pale hazy orange, small tight head. Initially citrussy, then wheaty and yeasty aroma. Finally, bananaey and very perfumey. Lively carbonation, slightly watery palate, but refreshing. Really is about half way between wit and a hefe. Unfortunately that means it’s lacking the body of a good hefe and the crispness of a good wit. Despite that, it’s a tasty summer brew, with a decent range to its flavours, even if there’s nothing new. (6:4:6:3:12=3.1)
Rerate: 330ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi) as Vaarwit - wtf - stop doing dodgy rebadges! That’s put me in a bad mood when drinking this, as I wouldn’t splash out Scandinavian beer prices for such a mediocre brew voluntarily. Aroma was duller, flavour was duller, palate was a little fuller, and overall I’m a little less impressed. (5+:4:5+:3+:10). Brewdog seem to have spoilt this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 500 ml bottle. As Tia Loca. Finland.
Hazy pale yellow colour with medium white head. Citrus, wheat, yeast and spices in aroma. Some sweetness, bitterness, citrusy, wheaty, spices and yeasty in flavour. As described this is somewhere between German Weizen and Belgian Wit. As I’m big fan of Witbier I like this but...
330 ml bottle. As Vårwit brewed by BrewDog. Finland.
Hazy dark golden colour with small white head.
Intriguing wheaty, yeasty aroma with some caramel, mild hoppiness and mild spices. Wheat, yeast, mild hops and some spices in very dry flavour.
Still somewhere between Weizen and Witbier.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Brewpub, Cph.
Pours pale, muddy yellow with a fine, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has lemons, light flowery hops, mint and lots of wheat. Highish carbonation, a bit watery palate. Flavour is a bit spicy, some coriander, piney hops and lemons. This is all atop of a fat, wheaty background. A bit of a bastard between styles.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Opaque yellow-orange with a small but firm and partly lasting head. Quite strongly fruity-banana-lemon-estery aroma with wheaty malt. Flavor of spicy coriander and orange-peel, some stingy dullness, lemony fruitiness, light wheaty sourness, vanilla. Almost medium body with quite high carbonation. Reasonably refreshing, but a bit stingy.
