3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught@Vltava, Helsinki, labeled Celis White) Opaque yellow-straw color with a small, lacy head. Very lemony, quite spicy, somewhat sweet aroma. Nicely peppery-spicy, fruity-lemony acidic flavor. Light-bodied, very refreshing but slightly thin, quite carbonated and crisp palate. A decent, refreshing witbier.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy light green/gold coloured beer with minimal head. The aroma is quite sour wheaty, lemony and medicinal. The taste is also on the sour side with rather thin lemony notes. An average wit needing that creamy full texture that others enjoy.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 33. This bottled brew from the De Garre pub in Brugge poured a small head of white colored diminished but long lasting finely sized bubbles that left behind a cloudy dark white yellow colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was mildly malted and almost non-existent. The mouth feel was tingly and hoppy with a fruit bite in the otherwise clean finish. The flavor contained notes of mild white malts and coriander with a fruity mild banana note.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy Bright Yellow.
Suprising, strong and spiced nose. The coriander was the most prominent, a blend of sweet and bitter, but also notes of butter toffee, orange, citrus fruits and have phenols.
Very phonolic in its flavor. Strong spices (coriander, orange peel) with hints of citrus fruits and caramel. Well balanced. This was a good one and great for the style.
