3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spicy, citrusy aroma. Lemon oil and hops, some lactic quality - almost bilious. Cloudy pale yellow-gold, with thick foamy white lacing head. Medium-light body with heavy active carbonation. Light flavor. Starts with some citrus acidity, very little sweetness. Chalky, with a bit of lactic finish. Dull after. Pouring in the dregs give more chalky quality, but some yeast and bubblegum notes, too. Makes it a bit sweeter tasting, too. OK, but not great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice little witbier. A nice white head that sticks around, but perhaps not due to the resiliency of the foam, but the sheets of streaming bubbles. The color is what slightly caramelized grapefruit juice would look like, a cloudy khaki with a bit of yellow and pink. The coriander and orange aroma is just strong enough to be inviting and far from boring, but not so strong as to be a distraction or overwhelming. The same goes for the flavor. Nicely balanced with a crisp, dry wheat flavor dominating up front, but with a burst of orange in the finish that leaves you expecting citrus tartness that never comes. The body is very light and it's overall fairly dry, but that's all what you'd expect from a witbier. I offer no excuses for my love of witbiers and hefeweizens. If I could find this at home, it'd be my lawnmower beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light hazy grapefruit colour with a large white frothy head. Yeasty dusty aroma. Lemon with some slight banana and cloves. Not a full body and a short finish. Easily drinkable but needs more oomph!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw coloured, head not really that persistant. Unclear. Large yeast deposit in bottle. The flavour is fruity with coriander and citrus (bergamotte?). A bit hopped? Slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall a refreshing and very drinkable wit bier.

Bottled: Light yellow. Hazy. Thin white quickly diminishing head. Yeast, rubber and spices in the aroma. Banana, citrus, spices and some yeast in the flavour. Dies quickly on the palate. I've had much better Belgian Witbiers.
