2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle. Hazy pale gold colour with a huge, rocky white head. Big aroma of coriander and orange with some yeast and graininess. Flavour had a touch of sour citrus, more coriander and a short finish. Ok.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - pours cloudy yellow, large white frothy-fizzy head with good lacing. Nose presents grapefruit and apple with a hint of doughy yeast, which carries over to the taste, lightly sour.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Assaggiata in bottiglia da 75 cl.
Ottimo aspetto, schiuma fine e colore giallino torbido. L’aroma è carico di spezie e agrumi. veramente intenso. Diciamo che l’insieme è molto promettente. In bocca invece ha un corpo sottilissimo e gli aromi spariscono abbastanza velocemente. I più persistenti rimangono gli agrumi. Il finale amarognolo non è male.

Bottle 75cl, a slightly cloudy yellow beer with almost no head. Nose is lemony. Aroma is mostly dry with spice, fruit and astringency, orange peel notes, medium malty to low, finish has a nice round bitterness. Easy drinkable, apricot, apple and oranges notes.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml corked bottle. I am going along with rauchbiers advice here, as i also had the Tesco Finest French Wheat. It wasn’t bad. Quite tangy, with a bit of citrus and some sour grain. Slight vanilla and clovey spicyness, but they aren;t as easy to detect as other beers of the same style. The mouthfeel was a little thin for my liking, but it was still quite refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle, no discernible date but bought in Dec 2004. Big frothy head diminishes fairly quickly to a moderate full cover, atop a pale hazy yellow-gold body....fruity, lightly buttery nose, touch yeasty & sour...dryish, lightly sour and lemony body, fairly crisp with a touch of honey towards the finish, medium body at first turns quite watery, drinkable but pretty dull and uninspired.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled as Tesco Finest thought the strength said 5% but I may be wrong on that point. This beer poured very cloudy and looked a golden/orange colour with moderate carbonation.Aroma was wheaty and a bit citrusy, taste was crisp, wheaty again some bananeyness ’if there’s such a word’ but not that impressive. I left some of this as I just got a bit fed up with it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 06-05. Pours a pale golden color with lots of effervescence and a hazy appearance. Head is fairly small, white, and fizzy with most of it diminishing somewhat quickly. Nose is not bad with a tart souness of lemon, dust, yeast, and wheat with a house character. Taste is very similar with a slightly tart lemon sourness, dust, yeast, and lightly of esters. Palate is light to medium, moderate cabonation, and a slick feel. Finishes with lemon sourness, some bitterness, and a soapy note. Not too bad at first, but kind of hard to drink after a few drinks. Interesting interpretation of the style but not really a good one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dorée, mousse blanche.
Arôme de blé, qcq notes de citron, levure avec toujours cet aspect glucosé sucré qui vraiment n’est pas top pour une blanche. Encore une fois je vois une description de bière de garde pour un style type blanche dont les arômes épicés restent muets.
En bouche, similaire problème que pour les autres bières Ch’Ti, toujours ce glucose qui tend à prendre le dessus. Les épices sont minimales, léger palais citronné avec possibilité de curaçao. Malt type pils rajoute un peu à l’amertume. Seul le côté citronné me plait.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very hazed straw yellow as it sits in my chalice, with an assured, yet slim layer of snow white bubbles lay above.
Looks like a wit.
Aroma, sour and citric, but on first sniff, unremarkable. And that’s how I insist my wits smell...remarking of something, at least. No, none too pretty, wish I could state otherwise.
Taste: Weird. Not terribly pleasant. Doesn’t have that uplifting zip and zing, that light, airy spirit a good wit should have. Feels laden down with something it shouldn’t be,...a bit plastic. Is this infected? Might be an old bottle, might be a bad one, but this is not a good wit in the least. Not a happy beer at all, at all.
