3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. First of all, this beer just looks fantastic. Hazy deep orange body with a massive white crown. This is what I’d like all my light-colored beers to look like, but it’s not very wit-like at all. Peculiar. Aroma is also only slightly reminiscent of a wit; banana, oats, fresh hay and spicy esters with hints of coriander but with a much richer, maltier feel. This is really something else, so I guess the "wheat ale" category here on RB is more spot on that the bottle’s own "Vårwit" ("SpringWit") label representation. Taste is spicy, grassy hoppiness with wheat-and-oats-like tones and citric hints. High carbonation that works well with the slightly heavier palate than a normal wit would be comfortable with. Balanced and refreshing, and definitely one of the best wheat-based beers I’ve had in a while, the VårWit/Tia Loca is a real springtime hit from Beer Here/Brew Dog.

0,5 l. bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Hazy orange body with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is fruits like citrus and lemon with some banana and spices.

Impressive taste at only 4,5%, excellent for a hot summer day.

As it warms, a phenolic note resembling burnt rubber gets stronger. Dry, on the lighter side of medium bodied, low bitterness. Fruity, spicy taste, yeast, wheat, cloves, bananas, lemon peel. The phenolic, burnt rubber note lingers in the finish. (2011-02-22)
