4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottled, BBE 07/2011) Opaque yellow with a small, vanishing head. Strongly spicy coriander-gingery-lemony nose. Flavor is also very spicy and lemony with ginger and coriander dominating, but also some wheaty maltiness present towards the drying finish. Medium body, lightly fizzy but balanced carbonation. A huge amount of aroma and flavor packed in a 4.8% witbier, without resorting to American hops or radical overspicing. The flavor is on the edge with the spiciness, but manages to remain balanced. After sampling the Brune, Blonde and this, Iím really beginning to love this brewery! 5345

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle: best before 02/2012. Poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru badged stemmed tulip @ home during a random tasting evening on 16 Nov 2012.
Golden looking brew, slight haze with a small white head on top.
The nose was all about Belgian yeasts and semi sweet citrusy notes: the taste followed along the same lines and when the usual witbier spicy flavours arrived in the mouth they seemed to be stronger and better than normal. I really enjoyed this beer and I donít class this style as a favourite of mine.
Good body depth for the style and all in all a fine brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Pale gold, cloudy, with thick white head. Lemony, wheaty, wit aroma. I’ve always had a soft spot for Belgian wits. This one has a certain personality and good balance of the requisite aromas and flavours. a little soap, but good lemon and very good wheat malt body. Decent sharp lemon on finish. Ratehr well made and tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pale and unhazy until you chuck the bits in, under a tight snowy head. Aroma of lemon barley, rind, jelly, dusty spice. Mouth lemon meringue and zest, Robinsonís (barley squash), pepper. Not too perfumey, just a dip of biscuit. Rounded, tasty witbier. I like this brewery.

Nice yeasty wit - modest floral citrus notes, make this an interesting non-pasteurised Walloon companion piece to Hoegaarden.
