2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(500 ml bottle: Obtained in trade with radiomgb, thanks Jeff!) Hazy, golden body shows several streams of small, slowly-rising carbonation bubbles and is topped by a big, fluffy, white head which slowly subsides in rocky fashion. Sadly, the appearance just may be the best part of this beer. Fruity, musty, yeasty, slightly spicy nose isn’t especially interesting, but hey, at least it introduces the beer accurately because the flavor is pretty mild and boring as well. Starts off with a bit of citrus and orange peel, transitioning into more coriander toward the finish. Only slightly sweet with just a hint of bitterness, but overall, though it doesn’t taste bad, there’s just not much flavor going on here. Body is rather thin as well, but the citrus, coriander and lively carbonation keep the palate refreshing. Kind of disappointing, I was hoping for better.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy milky yellow colored, fine white head. Wheat, yeast and a penetrating note of soap in the aroma, not very pleasant. Fruity flavor mostly peach with some yeasty notes. Foamy mouthfeel. Thin, uninteresting and extremely overrated (like many non-Belgium Belgian White....)!!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a very unclear, pale golden with a small, white and creamy head. Fresh and very spicy nose. Appears quite light-bodied with fresh, citrusy notes and a distinct spiciness. On top of the usual coriander I detect something that suspiciously reminds me of cardamom! Very fresh with a slight touch of sulphur in the finish. 270106

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An unclear orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy - with coriander standing out, but also fruity notes of oranges. The flavor is also sweet spicy, but here both ginger and coriander are present, as well as notes of oranges.
