3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a warm brown tone. Very cloudy, and I was actually pretty gentle with the pour, so I assume it’s the wheat. Big light khaki head. Dissipates fairly quickly leaving some lacing. The aroma is big on tropical fruit, grapey Nelson Sauvin and earthy Belgian flavors. It’s all a bit milder than I’d like, though. I wonder if this beer would be better fresh as can be. The taste has a lot of doughy, toasty malt. Very bread. Nice Nelson fruitiness, sweet and rich. Gets fairly medicinal and a bit plasticky as it warms. Lots of flavors that don’t quite mesh. Mouthfeel is full and a bit fizzy. I liked this beer for a brief time as it warmed but it went from too mild to too medicinal quickly. It needs a lot more hop character and less funny yeast notes.

A coppery beer with a big, dense and blond head. The nose of fruits, sweet strawberrymarshmellows, some tropical fruits and black currants, hint of yeasty sourness. Interesting and fresh aroma. Taste of fruits, wheat and tartness, some spices and black currants. Medium bodied, quite easy to drink. Fruifull wheat beer, quite nice.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nez engageant sur le houblon vert, les levures, le pain.
Attaque pétillante et agressive légèrement acide.
Bouche très (trop) crémeuse, fromentée et écoeurante.
Final interessant sur les houblons (Nelson, mon amour) mais gâché par le froment envahissant, lourd et écoeurant.
