4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 330ml from Marche de Natalie, Bouillon, Belgium. Clouded yellow with big white head. Was I surprised with this one, expecting just another Blanche, I was so blown away i have to give it my best Belgian Wit score ever. There is lemon and spice in the aroma, this follows doggedly into the beer which is a delicate, zesty brew with maybe a touch of ginger. Its fine and not overbearing, delicate. The flavour remains throughout, with maybe a touch of yeastiness. Very good indeed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 11 Aug 2007) Pale yellow colour, cloudy, with brief white head. Fruity, slightly tart nose with notes of lemon, plums, green apples and orange peel. Fruity, slightly sourish taste with yellow plums, lemon, wheat-flour dough and a short, spicy finish. Some sweetness throughout. Decent witbier, not the best, but very drinkable and thirst quenching.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The hue is quite cloudy and a deep yellow like the flesh of a peach. Enormous, creamy and white, the head slowly settles down to a small cap over the beer. Coriander and bitter orange peel are both very strong in the aroma, in a way that I almost get an aroma of sunscreen out of it. And orange creamsicle! Crisp wheat and sour lemon drops wrap the experience up. Fruity Pebbles sweet initial flavour gives way to a lemon sourness in the finish. A little bit of the creamsicle comes across as well, but mostly the flavour is quit mild and much less sour than I thought it would be from the aroma. Hm, sort of a ginger flavour as it warms. There’s a light astringency, as well. Medium to light bodied, with a slick texture and moderate carbonation. More sourness and carbonation, and I’d be sold.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy straw/hay color with a dissipating white head. Wonderfully pungent aroma features cloves, a funky cheese/bread dough mix and strong lemon and orange. A bit of a bitter spice to it too (coriander?). Tastes stings a bit at first, but there are some wheat and dough flavors, tons of lemon and peppery coriander flavor. Finishes dry and kinda "old" tasting in a way. Very flavorful. High carbonation and light mouthfeel, but I wouldn’t call this beer lacking in any department. A solid witbier which I might have more often if it weren’t a high priced import.

Great fluffy white head. Refreshing and full with a bready/ banana Belgian yeast flavor. I keep going back to it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Sampled in feb. 2005.] Boring look almost grey, but the aroma is better and it points to that this beer is better than the first impression. A witbier with sournotes of citrus and grapes is the best description of this beer. A thirstquencher, but also the best to danish koldskål. Very speciel. Like it or not!
