2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottel, 25cl. A big deception this one! I love witbiers and Namur was recommended by a friend so i was expecting much more. Hazy yellow colour with a good white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma is medium sweet, yeasty and with a hint of lemon. Flavour is very weak and watery. Light body and a sweet finish. Want a witbier? Try a Hoegaarden.

Taster at Binnyís, Orland Park. Pretty much your standard wit. Probably the whitest pour Iíve ever seen. Pretty fizzy. Taste is redolent of lemon and a bit of clove. Followup finally brings in a hint of banana. Fritziness continues through the end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle, BBD 12/09/08, Winooski Beverage in Winooski, VT (May 2006), served a bit above fridge termperature in a Chouffe tulip. It pours a very pale yellow-gold, luminous with sparkly gelatinous yeasty particles, nearly opaque and topped with a lasting creamy very white head that leaves no lacing....aroma is very mild, lemon-orangy with faint hints of ginger and coriander, perhaps a touch soapy....body is lemon-lime soda, similarly thin though not syrupy, moderately sweet with barely a trace of yeast character, faintly spicy, pretty bland and insipid over all though reasonably thirst-quenching....closer to cellar temperature, the body fattens up a bit (though it remains watery at the finish) and a touch of dry cobwebby yeast asserts itself, but not enough depth is added to make it more than...ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Beer on the Pier, Chicago. Wheat aroma with corriander. I donít know that I detected orange peel. Litterally white in color, perhaps the whitest beer Iíve ever come across. A layer of white head. Gets a point for uniqueness in appearance. Thin body; might be better if it was served a little colder. Has all the correct flavor chacteristics. Not too bad; just a little light (only 4.5%).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale, straw body with a tall fizzy head. Smells of soft wheat, coriander, with strong licorice overtones. The latter tones down in the flavor and complements the wheat, coriander, and orange rind nicely. Very refreshing with a crisp, dry finish.

Cloudy light golden color. Large rock head slowly fades away. Coriander and orange peel on the nose. Wheaty, fruity taste with a spicy finish. Not bad on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow, with a big white head. Wheaty, spicjy aroma. Flavor of ornage, coriander, and blueberry. Nice soft, spritzy palate. The label indicates there is licorace in here, too, but I donít get that. # 143351 on the cork, if that means anything.

Flavor is very estery, some banana in the finish. Some spiciness, coriander perhaps. Decently thick mouthfeel, low carbonation, not too spritzy.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In the 750 mL bottle at the Huber Haus Weissbier tasting 4/11/6. Appears very cloudy with the exact color and look of fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. A weak white head. A smell anise, coriander, pepper and a meaty aroma. The flavor is a tart citrus, floral perfume and an unusual meaty taste. Medium palate, but the aroma is outstandingly complex.
