4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours slightly hazy pale straw with two finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate lacing (4/5). Nose is Belgian yeast, lemony citrus, wheat bread, apples and grapes. (8/10). Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter, tart and spice (8/10). Light to medium body, prickly to moderate carbonation, with a spicy, tart finish (5/5).
That is nice! Glad I drank it fresh, before it had a chance to dim. Really excellent example of a true Belgian-style witbier, comparable in performance to their Lupulus as an example of Belgian Strong Ale. Tart, crisp, and almost cider-like flavour, with just a hint of cellar mustiness. Great beer for a warm day on the patio. (18/20)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Everything about this beer is aggressive. Pour is cloudy straw with a mountainous white head, even with the gentlest of pours. Nose is a lot of Belgian yeast and bread, herbal tea, banana, a bit of lemon. Taste is sweet, but balanced by a bit of tartness that makes this oddly refreshing for such a spice-heavy beer. Not my favourite style, so this is already a biased review, but one of the better examples I’ve tried.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a great Witbier and stands out among others. Had a huge frothy white head with pale, unfiltered, light straw colour. Aroma was of wheat, grapes, and spices. Tasted of spices, wheat, light orange, apple, and some basement in there. Had a very smooth body with low carbonation and was kind of watery, but in a good shocking way. A real shocker of a witbier.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pretty wackily tasty. I love coming across a style I have had a few similar beers of and then a curve ball that stills fits the style comes in the door. This had a huge frothy white head resting atop a hazy, watery-straw coloured liquid. Smells of wheat, grapes, yeast and coriander. Taste is great, spicy apple pie, light basement and some mellow citrus going on. Very smooth and surpringly low carbonation when drinking considering the beastly head.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 Hazy pale yellow with a very nice white foamy head. Aroma is acid, some citrus, some spice, hint of ginger and fresh herbs with a cereal side. Taste is on the sweet side, as nearly no bitterness is present. Creamy palate with a nice medium body. Carbonation is not too high and the finish is quite pleasant!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/06/06 - Pours a hazy orange-straw colour with a thick, foamy white head that lingers. Aroma is wheat, orange, floral, yeast, cloves, cinnamon and honey. Taste is similar to nose; wheat, earthy yeast, orange, mild banana, cinnamon, spices and sweet honey malt. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with smooth carbonation and a refreshing, tart finish. Interesting and very drinkable.

Taste is lightly malty, pear, white pepper, doughy and quenching. Buoyant, soft, fluffy mouthfeel. Really one of the best true witbiers I’ve ever had.
