2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2011 Sept, 2003 Eiderdown floating on bladder discharge. A mouthful of band-aid. Several unanswered questions. But more balanced with the dregs. [2.8]
Nov, 2011 Part of the Nice Carrefour pack during the Nice-Cannes Marathon week. Soft and loose, with nothing firm for the mouth to hold - everything quickly escaping like sorbet. An alcoholic lemonade. This would taste better with a bit of lemon, and really needs the yeast swirled in to give it any character or bite. Bland, but drinkable. [2.6]

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale yellow beer, hazy, large white head, large bubbles. Citrussy aroma, yeasty, wheat, weak aroma intensity. Initial sweet flavour, then light acidic to balance. No bitterness. Coriander taste. Light body with a wheat texture, high carbonated. Rather sweet than tart. Maybe too sweet.

Very refreshing. A little lemonade-feeling with citrus and some spices. Well balanced, OK volume. Palate is too weak.

Cologne type aromas, some floral aspects, very nice in the nose. Some light creaminess, a little "burned out". Very good in the nose but not quite all there oon the tongue. Continues to wake up even at over 60F.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks for the description as I was taken aback a little by the chunkiness when poured. The nose is a beautiful fresh citrus and spice. Very slightly acidic diacetyl but a very pleasant taste. Agree that the bitterness is quite low but there is still a fine balance in this wit. Is there a different brew however? My bottle says ABV 4.1%

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2003 I love this beer. It smells of fruits, and some spices. The taste is even better, Lots of fruits and some cinnamon and a faint taste of spices, this is near to perfection for a wheat beer. I will get a case when I have the change.

75 cl bottle. Just a bit hazy blonde beer. Citric, chalky aroma with some grape sugar. Sweetish, herbal flavor with some citrus. Dryish aftertaste with a hint of hops. Well made tasty witbier.
