2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy golden when poured, head forms fast almost like a can of sprite. The taste is very light and acidic almost like a cross between a lemon soda and tonic water. Not for my own personal taste. Maybe in a small portion, but to difficult to sit through an entire .75 liter bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 Bottled. A very hazy yellow coloured wit with very little head. The aroma is heavy on lemony notes and there is a fruity yeasty character. The taste is quite perfumed and floral with more lemony wheaty notes. The spices don’t real shine out and the mouthfeel is a bit thin.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 75 cl) One of the first Belgian whites to enter the market after the succesful relaunch of Hoegaarden by Pierre Celis. Paler than Hoegaarden, but with a smaller head. All the typical perfumy coriander and orange peel notes that make witbiers such a wonderful and quenching experience. This is one of the best. 040993

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m not a huge White fan, but this specimen is as good of a Blanche/Witte one will find in the low countries. Very fruity, somewhat spicy, not strong at all--but nicely refreshing.

Aroma: lightly sweet, fruity with a hint of pine needles. Apperance: cloudy pale yellow with a big fluffy head that settles down to larger bubbles and leaves some sheet lacing. Flavour: lightly grainy, hoppy, dry with a little clove. Palate: thin with lingering biscuity aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, 0.75l) Opaque yellow-golden color with a medium, partly lasting head. Very crisp, lemon-fruity and lightly spicy aroma. Fruity, wheaty and lemony flavor with a spicy finish. Fizzy-carbonated, light to medium-bodied, soapy and acidic palate. A nice, refreshing summer drink, although with less flavor and spiciness than in Hoegaarden.
