1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled, said 5.5% ABV. Citric aroma mixed with vinegar. Hazy, yellow color, white head, few lace. Light sweet, citric, vinegar, bitter, wheat, medicine, sparkling yet dry. Smells awfull, looks bad, tastes terrible. Yuck!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an enormous white foamy head on a cloudy yellow body. Very yeasty aroma with citrus and wheat. Flavor is quite odd, sweet at the beginning but after a short while a very sour and acidic flavor kicks in. Lots of hay and lemon and a dry finish. A quite different Witbier. Thanks to Philippe (Bov) for trading me this!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is fantastic; sweet malt with strong notes of fruit and spices - I can't put a name on. The aroma also contains notes of yeast and some sourness - like it is found in the aroma of geueze. The color is an unclear dark yellow and it has a beutiful bubbly white head - though very fast disappearing. The flavor is very unusual; sweet though with a strong sour background of wheat malt and with strong spice notes - dominated by corriander and lemon. The corriander and the sour wheat lingers for a long time, just to turn into a lemony dryness. A very complex flavor - great for a Witbier. The palate is quite good. Great thanks to Alex (Fiulijn) for bringing me this beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very light and cloudy colour. Lots of citrus in the aroma. The flavour is yeasty, acidic and too sour. The aftertaste is sour in an unpleasant way.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2004 My only real complaint is that the aroma is a bit muted compared to the onslaught of flavor that you get from this thing. The finish lingers very gently, but the inital taste impressions are very strong: lemon & orange, sour wheatiness, that white peppery tingle. Huge body, hefty, super unfiltered -- perfect in appearance and palate, just like Brugs in these respects. The malt is really soft, as Josh states. Man oh man, this is good!

Very white, cloudy; Acidic, orangey palate with ample soft malt. Very complex. And definitely not ’dark ruby’.

Cloudy blond color; compact head. The aroma is spicy, nice. Spicy wheat flavor, smooth and dry mouthfeel, strong bitterness, with a shade of bitter oranges in the final.
Correct brew, but without any BFM character.
Cloudy blond color, the head disappears quickly. Refreshing aroma, with some malt, hop, pepper. The mouthfeel is quite thin; it has a quite good mix of flavors (light hop, malt, spices…), but light compared to the usual BFM quality.
Light blond color. Interesting, original aroma, spices. Sour, dry, spicy. The palate is not enough long.
Dark ruby ale. Spicy aroma. Strong character, a light sourness similar to the belgian Oud Bruin beers. Nice malty palate.

Has a nice cloudy pale yellow colour with a short head. Aroma of pollen and flowers. The taste is slightly acid and fresh. Nice long and acid aftertaste. Pleasant.
