2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. A headless, hazy orange coloured beer. The aroma has sweet fruits, but seems a little ’greasy’ The taste has some lemons and oranges and a little spice. It’s too sweet though and seems based on most French wits rather than Belgian ones so ends up thin of body. Very average.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Lightly hazy golden, small head. Fruit ynose with equal doses of vanilla, metal and orange. Too light bodied to stick together, the thin mouthfeel makes the flavours transparent and vague. It passes through my sensory organs and I only get slight nuances of flavour. What is is good, but it’s just to shy.

tastes a bit like a liquid caramel toffee, rather sweet than sour, otherwise in the tradition of some Belgian wheat whites (Hoegaarden and others) .... actually quite a good brew from Switzerland (alas, there are not that many ...)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l fliptop bottle my friend Zrinka shared with me, thanks! BB date 27/Mar/08. Poured hazy pale yellow body with medium creamy head. Very faint aroma, fruity, with orange, banana and peach dominating. Unfortunately some swamp notes all the way around. Sweetish fruity flavor, from time to time notes of bitter and sourish like orange. Quite thin bodied, let’s say watery, but that’s the style... Smooth sweet finish. Probably better when fresh.
