2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Le liquide est de couleur dorée et légèrement trouble. Présence d’une très petite tête mousseuse. Au nez, des notes insaisissables de fruits s’articulent autour d’une présence fantomatique de blé sucré aux épices inexpressives. Le goût est délavé avec des grains tièdes qui viennent mourir tout juste avant d’avoir pu détendre les papilles. En bouche, le corps est moyennement faible avec une effervescence passablement engourdie et une texture mince. En finale, le liquide rend l’âme sur d’imperceptibles notes de…. Je cherche encore…

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy straw color. Thin white head. Mild aroma of lemon and yeast. Flavor is wheaty, light yeast and lemongrass. Light, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Refreshing, but not much too it.
Remember that old O’Doul’s commercial: "It’s what beer drinkers drink when they’re not drinking beer"? That’s kind of how I would describe this. It’s almost like a mix of witbier and a white wine spritzer. It’s the kind of drink you’d give to someone who swore up and down that they didn’t like beer. And I will say that it’d go well with many foods. That said, it’s not something many beer geeks are going to just sit down and drink for the sake of the taste.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Scialba, piatta, insignificante. L’aroma è quasi inesistente, in bocca assolutamente banale. Da uno dei più grandi chef del mondo ci si poteva aspettare qualcosina in più.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose of spice and orange peel. Poured a filtered slightly cloudy golden color with decent head retention. Tastes of coriander, citrus, and water. The watery taste overpowers the other ingredients. Overall, this is too light.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
10/2/10. Bottle. This is a wit? Looks like a pale lager. Mild aroma with a hint of orange and coriander. Lame sweet flavor with plenty of spice. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is crisp, yeasty and wheaty with an undertone of lemon and a touch of sweetness. It pours a slightly hazy straw-yellow - not inspiring, but at least the snow-white head is fairly thick and fluffy and leaves decent lacing. Flavor is typically wheaty and yeasty with a faint lemon undertone, a teensy on the thin side but still potable. Texture is smooth, a bit watery, barely fizzy. I expected better from the appearance of the bottle, as well as the cost - I lost the slip so I’m not sure how much I spent, but it was not cheap. Don’t think I’ll be looking for this one again, but I’m glad I gave it a fair shake.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty Cava-style bottle (not an aerosol or anything exotic). Hazy yellow/ orange with a large white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, coriander seeds, wheat. Quite sweet and slightly watery. Some tartness that seems to be from the aromatics rather than the wheat. The licorice is there at the end. Lacks that sour tang and a little depth, but it’s refreshing enough.

Bottle. Pour hazy gold with a white head. Spicy coriander like aroma with some sweeter citric and wheaty notes. The flavor has grainy/lager like notes with some wheat and light spicy notes. Decent.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is a pale, unfiltered yellow witbier with no aroma to speak of and a light flavor. There’s no particular taste to it, although the palate is okay, a mildly fizzy sort of thing. Good to have sampled it but disappointing, so there’ll be no repeat purchases.
