4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2011 printed on the cork. Pours lightly hazy and cloudy golden straw color with a 2 finger fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap than lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big apple, pear, grape, lemon zest, coriander, orange peel, hay, grass, herbal, white pepper, wheat, and light funk. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of apple, pear, grape, lemon, orange peel, tangy wheat, bread, hay, grass, coriander, floral, light pepper, and light funkiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, lemon zest, wheat, bread, grass, floral, hay, coriander, light pepper, and light funk on the finish for a bit. Damn nice flavor balance with a high amount of complexity; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp and fairly prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very excellent witbier! There is a high amount of flavor complexity and balance; and it is extremely smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed as Dupont Foret Blanche - 750ml corked and caged bottle purchased at France 44 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 111223a stamped on label, 2.011 printed on the cork. The pour is a hazed golden yellow with a foamy three inch head. The head falls slower with decent lace. The aroma is citrus, grass and soft spice yeast. There is a hint of skunk initially though it cleared quick enough (three year old green bottle alert!). The taste is herbal medicinal, lemon, hay, grass and brighter spice clove yeast in the back. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and decent punch of yeast in the finish. This lacks a bit of crispness, though that may have to do with the age.

Tap at Hiranoya. Taste is very nice, light wheat, bit herby. Soft. Ice cream sweetness maybe. Fruity berries. Much nicer than I remember.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, pale yellow. Quite a sweet aroma with some banana coming through. Flavour has initial zesty and spicy coriander but fades very quickly into a watery finish..

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small 25cl bottle. Cloudy light orange with a short-lived white head. Crisp cucumber is the top note off the pour, then chamomile and hay. Watery, insipid wheaty palate, chamomile accents, no real spice. Best before May 2015, so I’m assuming freshness isn’t the issue here.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy pale blond body with an average white foamy head. Weird malty/hoppy aroma with wet wood hints. Fair, slightly misbalanced taste carries grainy and flowery notes. Ends with a short bitter/grainy finish. Disappointing.
