3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light yellow colored, strongly hazy appearance. Big lasting white head. Citrus, mild sourness and spices in aroma, pretty thin nose.Thin to medium bodied. Medium carbonation, lemon, banana, wheat and mild spices in flavor, aftertaste has biting dryness, lemon and mild yeast. Fine refreshing white, still nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (from Asda, BBE Jul 06). Citrus aromas mostly lemon with some sweet orange and tart lime, light banana and some spicy pepper. Drinkable and well balanced. ACtually better from the fridge - brings the fresh acidity to the fore rather than slightly flaccid malts.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Must start by saying that I’m not the biggest Witbier fan, so I judged this as openly as possible. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a tulip glass. Dull, wheaty yellow body, opaque, with a broad, cauliflower head initially forming but later dwindling back to a lather of soap that left some lace. Soft, fruity sweet, lemon, grapefruit and apple nose with a light hint of fresh herbs and candi-sugar. Not what I expected for the style. Initial champagne-like prickly carbonation moved through into tart white wine notes on the tongue. It quickly mellowed and I could take in some flavour. Quite wheaty and almost starchy with some castor sugar flavour upfront that added sweetness to this ultra-light bodied Wit. Reminded me of lemon squash soda as it was slightly sour and heavily charged in carbonation. Finish was very short and crisp, and overall it was one that just didn’t match me. Not my cup of beer anyway. Not the best from this fine brewery!!! (25 & 33cL, both BBE 09/06)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy Hoegaarden-looking. Slight vanilla, some spiciness. Lactic but in a good way that mixed with the banana flavor quite well. Mild finish, just-right mouthfeel. A very good example of a lighter weizen beer. Sweet finish, well-done.
