3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the brewery. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a frothy white head and no lace. The aroma is typical crushed banana. The flavour is mainly of apple. It’s more acidic that a regular witbier and for me that’s no bad thing as I feel it improves the flavour and makes for a more refreshing beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle at home. Poured into a tumbler glass. ABV 5%
Clear orange body, with one finger of soapy head on top, good retention, light lacing on the glass.
Mostly aroma of wheat but also some unpleasant plastic notes.
Taste is quite sour, white grapes, some little clove. Sour aftertaste as well, along with plastic on the taste as well. Very bad.
Medium thin body, average carbonation. Tart feeling on the palate.
Overall not a good one. I mark it for re-review on some other time, hoping that it had gone bad and that it wasn’t the taste they were going for.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has a light sour smell, malty, wheat. A golden colored beer which had a medium body, with an average head. The taste is far from pleasent, it is harch, lots of iron. A unpleasent bitterness, which keeps in the aftertaste. I poored it away, not good!!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle trade with tderoeck, merci! - Pours a disingegrating speckled cloudy orange with shy head. Taste is rather protein-forward, sweetish, germinated, lacking any citric or uplifting element. Instead this is remains a very muddled affair, a lacklustre wit down in the bogs of experimental inauthenticity, a risk for any brewery that imports so many foreign recipes.
