2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beautiful to look at with its dense, lasting white tower of foam above its hazed very pale golden coat. Mellow lemony citrus accents blend with clovey/phenolic spiciness and wonder bread white doughiness. Very easy to drink, but not particularly engaging .Very timid maltiness, the agressive carbonation not helping, it seems to be almost pure foam we have in mouth, with a fair bit of carbonic acid that dominates the finish with a vague spiciness. Some Hefeweizen characterictics, but without the cereal structure.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BIG GUSH.
App.: Hazy light golden with a large, frail white head.
Aroma: Lots of yeast and wet bread dough, soapy citrus and coriander, some esters, a tangy fruit note and a bit of resinous hops?, more wet dough, meh.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: More fruity and estery than the nose, still plenty of bread dough and yeast, lighter lemony coriander, a touch spicy and herbal, not awful; dry with minimal bitterness and a somewhat pleasant bread dough and yeast finish, a bit of lemon too.
I hate gushers. The beer was...fair.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazed yellowish blonde with a thick collapsing frothy white head. In aroma, a fruity herbaceous malt with off notes, light spices, troublesome. In mouth, a rather Belgian inspired ale with cloves, fruity esters, bananas, weizen like. Not bad, but I prefer René’s hoppy beers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille 341 ml. 5.5%. Couleur trop pâle, malade. Effervescence ridicule lors de la première versée. Arôme d’agrumes, levure belge et un peu de malt. En bouche, moins d’agrumes, plus de céréales. Finale sèche. Correct mais décevant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - 341ml. Hazy pale blond body with a fair white frothy head. Relatively thin malty /hoppy aroma with spruce hints. Its fresh taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It also carries spruce/pine notes. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Hope this won’t make it to the market.
