3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewery, 10/29/15.
Very gently hazy white golden body shows gentle carbonation and a moderate amount of white head with good retention.
Straw, grains of paradise, plentiful white and black pepper phenolics and a healthy dose of pale maltiness backs everything nicely. No alcohol or flaw, quite clean.
Very straightforward witbier, though it’s noticeably light on the spice/herb aspect. While there’s a good deal of phenolic pepperiness, there’s just a touch of light herbal character and mostly grains and honey. Ample carbonation and light bodied but not overly so. Interestingly, it’s much more of a light Belgian pale in the yeast department. No heavy bubble gum, no cotton candy and only light clove. Some orange rind dryness and more malt character on the finish. Ok, so maybe not that straightforward of a wit, now that I think about it. But quite delicious.

6oz taster, on tap at Twenty Tap. Hazy, slightly darker golden color. Nice half-finger of white head. Leaves decent ridges of lace. Interesting herbal, sort of minty aroma up front. Wintergreen? Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Kind of soapy. Belgian, kind of sugary yeast character. Medium-plus body. Pretty full feel for a belgian white. Kind of slick, maybe a bit sweeter. Kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Alright, kind of malty, sweet, bready yeasty wit bier.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at Brugge. Looks good for the style; a hazy pineapple with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and mild citrus. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A decent wit.

Sufficienza piena per una blanche dal forte aroma di limone, molto frizzante e beverina! Nulla di eccezionale

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow. Moderately forceful pfft when I opened the cap, expected a gusher. No gush. But a quick splash in the weisse glass produced 1/2 inch of beer and 9 inches of head. But the beer stayed in the bottle. Large bubbles, though not fizzy and superb head retention. Loudly popping like rice crispies. Strong dry herbal perfumey aroma, punctuated from the explosive CO2 release, little soapy, but very natural and remains pleasant and inviting. Some white grape. I can feel myself aging waiting for this stupid head to die down just so I can take my first sip. It looks great but seriously. Fresh, light, bright coriander. Little sting on my lips, dusty wheat, hint of orange. Little dry finish and right up my alley.

Bottled. An unclear yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of fruits - especially lemon as well as straw. The flavor is quite acidic with notes of lemon and wheat, leading to a dry and tart lemony finish. Thanks MadsBerg for sharing.

Bottled. Thx to Santa Mike. Yellow coloured. Unclear. Light floaties. Fluffy off white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, light spice, stearin. Flavour is sour, citric, yeasty and has some sweet notes. Medium to full bodied. Dry grapy sour end. Very nice. More of a sour ale/berliner weisse in my book, if the sourness were deliberate that is, but nothing really indicated it shouldn´t be.
