Light, creamy and smooth with a pleasant tartness and good citrous notes. Smooths out and finishes with a hint of corriander and elderflower. It is wonderfully refreshing.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 On tap at the Jaguar Cafe, Montpellier. Looks like Hoegaarden, and is served in one of that brewer’s glasses. Quite a hard, crispy edge to the flavour (a sneaky bit of bitterness). Smooth and shiny mouthfeel. Good lemon and wheat, good balance. Great Wit, served in good nick.

Reminds me VERY much of Delirium Tremens which is a good thing. Small head on it that quickly disappeared. Cloudy honey orange colour. It is not as full bodied as a Delirium Tremens but it is only 5% so it doesn't need to blend as much as the DTs. Lightly spicy, fruity and not bitter. No foul banana flavours presented themselves to me in this brew. As for aroma it is strong in volatiles but if you enjoy it in Delirium Tremens you should be right.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Hazy pale golden. Big fruity(banana, canned fruits) nose. Butter/Diacetyl lurks behind. The flavour is immensely big. Mouthfeel is light. Taste is smallish notes of choriander with that curacao touch and an underlying sourish tone. I found this very estery, although "it is not supposed to be so". This very tasty Wit very well held up to the expectations of the opening of Delirium Café in Göteborg!

Featherweight Belgian witbier that ranks high on my list of favourite summer quenchers. The palate is a little skinny for some tastes and the finish a little abrupt but it’s hard to beat when the mercury is pushing into the thirties. It pours a cloudy lemon colour with a healthy white head. The nose has mouth-watering grapefruit notes and a little spice. The body is gossamer-thin and quenching. There are hints of banana and tea and the mildest of finishes. Nothing very complex here but it’s very more-ish. (Bottle)

Bottle, 4.5%. Weak citric aroma. Hazy pale yellow colour, very small white head. Good prickly mouthfeel. This beer is not so flavourful, but quite pleasant. Slightly spicy and nicely citric.

0,33 l bottle. Nice yellow color with a lot of floating sediment and a nice small head. The aroma is like honey with some spice. The flavour is honey too with a good yeasty-spicey caracter and with a thick body. Nice wheat fermented taste. Sweety aftertaste.
