3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Bierodrome, London. This is one of the dryest wit beers, with a very chalky flavour and powdery mouthfeel. It works well when draught, but is marginally less impressive from the bottle - I think it does need to be chilled.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, imported as Blanch de Bruges.
The beer is undoubtedly beyond its freshness date here in Montana, so bear that in mind.
Cloudy, light yellow or straw colored with a nose of yeast, coriander, and a hint of lemon.
The head isn't as bold as most wit, and it fades soon after I pour the beer, leaving only ghosts of lace on the glass.
It tastes pretty good, though. Fresher than I would have throught, with a spicy, lemon-nutmeg, yeasty taste that is quite nice and refreshing. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and the beer is a bit overcarbonated.
There is an aftertaste of yeast, citrus, pepper and nutmeg.
I like several other witbiers better, but this is drinkable and quite refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw body with heavy carbonation and rolling chunks of sediment that look like paint chips. Head faded fast and completely due to the high effervescence. Sweet buttery and nutty beer, with a hint of apples and coriander spice. Fizzy body. The palate is like a gin and tonic. Disappointing.

Wheat, yeast and spice aromas. Hazy yellow, nice sized white head, a few floaties, some lace. Flavours are; wheat, yeast and corriander. Crisp, clean, light bodied with a delightful mouthfeel. Terrific!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very aromatic and elegant wit. Long symphony of spicy, coriander, yeasty, wheaty and fruity flavors. Superdry peppery finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opening of the bottle releases a whiff of yeasty tartness.
Citric, sweet banana and a bit bitter nose.
Hazy white-yellow, creamy white head is not as impressive as with other wit.
Subtle fruity flavors (citrus, banana).
Pleasant velvet mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy and yellow. Aroma of sweet malt, spices, orange-peels and apple. Taste: a great wit; smooth, crispy and dry at the same time. Not much seetnes with some yeastiness. Fresh fruity notes of orange, lemon and apple. Dry finish.
