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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dirty off-white head over fully hazy yellow beer with an orange/greenish sheen. Very fruity nose, banana and citrus, wheat & lactic. Liquorice, mint, citrus and fresh garden herbs. Bit medicinal in the aftertaste. Extremely refreshing, titillating light MF. Excellent, out-of-the-way, unique wheatbeer. Kudos to Christian and txs to J & C!

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.

220ml from tap at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Fluffy white tophead. Misty, pale yellow body. Fine glass-lacing. Zestful spiciness in aroma and taste. Coriander, wheat, noble hops and sweet fruits can be spotted. Fresh, dry and smooth in the mouth. Gets quite sweet, but still a well blended summer drink (13.05.2009).

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Labelled VarWit.
Arôme fruité léger, levure un peu orange, note de coriandre, et houblons sec, reste un peu en dessous pour ce style de blanche belge.
En bouche, bière malté, note épice, coriandre, pelure orange avec un beau profile de levure le tout sur une fine amertume. Palais phénols, léger malt et épice sur la fin. Un peu déçu.
