3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a milky white yellow, lots of chunky yeast, with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head. Aroma is innitially of orange, then a touch of corriander with a wheaty graininess and a light note of banana. The body is spritzy, fizzy, and watery. The flavors are pretty dominantly orange and spiced. Some graininess that falls to a lactic sourness that hits you in the back of the throat. Not bad but lacking in body and freshness. I’d like to try this at the source.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (#143351). Pours very pale cloudy gold with a good size, but fast-fading, white head, and lots of black floaties. The aroma is zest, some sweet bread, some ambient earthy scents, and corriander if I breathe deeply enough. The palate is quite smooth. The flavor is zest and crackers at first, some faint banana, and a slightly spicy finish that melds into a very fruity aftertaste where I can pick up some orange. Not bad, but nothing superior.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Hazy yellow-brown color with sturdy head. Coriander and bitter orange in the aroma, along with exaggarated jaffa orange character. Wheaty flavor with coriander, orange and yeasty spiciness. Sharp carbonation. The orange aroma and flavor is too essence-like.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy palest gold, faintly tinged with green. Raucously fizzy head collapses immediately. Nose is citrus, wheatberry, musk, wet wool, alkaseltzer. Bland flavors of mineral water and lemon/lime zest. Bright acidity. Coriander and orange are barely identifiable, and the label-advertised licorice is too far below my radar. Light body, cola-like carbonation, and a limestone pastey/greasy feel. Overall impression is "tart" and little else.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
VERY pale yellow with big densely beaded head. Very fizzy. Reminded me of my aquarium filtration system. Nose is mild lemon. The flavor is also very subtle of lemon/citrus and mild yeast. Refreshing yes,but nothing really stands out which left me a bit disappointed. I agree that Hoegaarden is a better choice.
