1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
355ml can, 4.9% abv, from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Hazy pale yellow body, fair white head, upper level lacing. Perfumed fruity hops on the nose added by coriander. Ripe citrus, grainy malts, sweet coriander and lactose creating a strange kind of perfumed flavour. Not suitable with the Greek Lamb Pie and really not for me at all (Tromsø 04.07.2015).

Can from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours hazed straw colored with a smal white head. Aroma of spicy melon, floral hops and some weak lemon and orange. Taste is spicy, high carbonated with weak lemonade and perfumed hops, dry finish, strange one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Unclear dark yellow. Creamy white head. Wheat. Citrus. Spice stays in the background. A little tang. Lighter bodied. Creamy. A really nice wit. Not the boring or overly spiced stuff I see a lot. Unique. I’d have another.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can. Pour is hazy golden straw colored and has a thin loose film of bubbles. Nose is a combination of lilac and cinnamon. I can’t recall what chamomile smells like, but this must be it. Very nice; spicy vanilla notes, pollen and flowery, but it’s a bit much. The taste is the same, with some faint notes of toasted grain, honey and citrus zest hiding underneath. Late finish tastes of sweet vinegar solution and dill, like a sweet pickle. Light-medium body is smooth with a light-medium carbonation and has an interesting balance, more of a sweet/sour than any real bitterness. Not bad, but I couldn’t drink two. Overall bonus point for the experimentation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Oranges, chamomile, cinnamon, bleach.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, minimal head.
T- Oranges, coriander, chamomile, wheat.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish.
O- Decent wit. I like the addition of the chamomile, but the coriander is seemingly muted. Mostly orange tasting with some various spices like cinnamon and nutmeg added in. Soft on the palate and easy to drink. Nothing about it stands out, but nothing about it is worth forgetting either.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from Middlebury. Pale orange cloudy with lasting white head and lace. Spicy herbal orangey coriander aroma. Very sweet orange with tangy wheat grassy mild coriander then ruined by grains of paradise and chamomile. The finish is just disgusting. I have yet to enjoy a beer with grains of paradise in it. Who thinks this tastes good? Anyhow...nice light body and soft mouthfeel. Unfortunately, gross.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy golden amber. World class head volume, retention and normal lacing.
Light nose of coriander, orange and chamomile over a weak biscuit. As it warms, it becomes much sweeter and has hints of clove.
Light medium body with a texture that approaches creamy. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.
This is a uniquely flavored wit that is intense, slightly complex and somewhat balanced. It begins with a blend of flavors from the nose that separate very little. It has a general tart flavor that flows to clove and coriander in the middle. The middle has a very subtle bitterness that slowly becomes phenolic. The finish is a lingering phenolic that slowly becomes medicinal.
