4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance has a hazy yellow colored body with a thin/half fingered white foamy head that dies to a film coating the top of the glass. Carbonation is actually seen rising.
The smell has a nice combination of citrus to coriander (quite possibly the strongest smelling coriander-witbier I’ve ever smelled - wow holy moley that coriander is strong).
The taste has a citrusy sweetness with a nice spice added to compliment a different aspect witbiers tend to take on. There is a nice citrusy sweet and somewhat spicy aftertaste with a dry sweet spicy finish.
On the palate, she sits light, maybe somewhat sessionable for a Witbier at 4.5% but the spices that come in and they come in strong tend to pound the mouth and tongue a bit harshly (ha, its a witbier and to be somewhat expected, no worries).
Overall, wow, what a nice witbier I’m certainly more than glad to have, though I’m not a true fan of the style if anyone could try this style they should start with this and hopefully be amazed as much as I was with this one. Hopefully, I’ll get to see this one again.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was the penultimate beer in a Belgian beer tasting evening, and so taste buds were somewhat spent by the time this golden light beer dropped onto my tongue. That said it was very impressive, despite being the weakest of all 8 beers tasted, it was memorable and had a lovely fruity taste, bit reminiscent of hoegaarden (I can hear the purists groan). Certainly one I’d look out for again.
