3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 750ml nice bottle served in a thumbler glass.
A: Beautiful bottle art and format. Pours a pale and slightly hazy yellow color (with some notes of green against the light) forming a medium and very bubbled white head. Medium retention and lots of lingering lacings left in the glass
S: Sweet and spicy. Classic Witbier with strong notes of orange zest and coriander. Notes of liquirice, wheat and sweet pale grains. Sweet bread and a light perfume of flowery hops
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of pale malts, wheat, coriander, orange zest and liquirice. Quite smooth and very lightly bitter
M: Light body. Medium to low carbonation and a quite zesty and spicy aftertaste
O: Very good drinkability. Very easydrinking. Pleasant and spicy Witbier

Drank this with bbq on a warm evening outside, and this is a good context for the beer.
Pours mildly hazy pale amber. Smells of the slightly malty sweetness of edemame and sushi rice, with a mild herbal wiff. The bottle was 6mths old though so I think the aromatic qualities were probably gone. Tastes of thin sweet Biscuit and mild hay. Finish is freshly bittering with a lingering flavor that makes you want to dive back in with another quaff. 750mls disappeared pretty quickly. It’s not mind blowing. But I enjoyed it

Very nice lacing. Fluffy white head. Very faint aroma of malt. The taste is very smooth and light. Nice beer not very bold. Perfect for the light beer lovers of the world. Was pretty expensive for the beer quality.

Poured from bottle. Rating from memory from yesterday Oktoberfest party. Aroma of vanilla and citrus. Cloudy gold with thin white head. Vanilla and citrus flavors come through with some pepper, yeast and spice. Nice stuff - not sure if I’ve had beer from Spain before.

Couleur jaune dorée, forte mousse blanche. Nez de pulpe d’orange. Gout leger de pulpe d’orange un peu aqueuse un peu amère. Pas courante comme bière mais pas super non plus.

Brun farge med hvitt luftig skum. Lukter malt, sitrus og noe krydder. Mye kullsyre i denne. Ellers lettdrikkelig og lite bitter avslutning.
