3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl bottle from a local supermarket. It pours an unclear pale yellow liquid with small-medium white head; almost no lacing. The aroma is too light, with floral hops, wheat, citron (lemon), spices and some distant barley malt. It tastes intensely wheaty, feeling the orange peel, with a nice spicy end. It is sweet and tart, with almost no bitterness. Averagedly carbonated, it feels smooth and delicate in the mouth. It is an ok beer; good for the ladies. It is sold as a perfect companion for food, but there is better stuff out there. It’s opened some people’s eyes around food and beer, which is good thanks to a good marketing campaign. Still it is an improvable beer. Presentation is cool: smart bottle and crown cap.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, golden colour with a short foamy white layer. Moderately sweet and slightly yeasty malty aroma with a delicately bready and wheaty touch, accompanied by fruity notes of citrus and pears. Sweet and slightly bitter-tart flavour, light to medium bodied with a pleasantly smooth carbonation. Slightly bready malt-character with a moderate wheaty and fruity touch leading into a mildly fruity and coriander-spicy finish with a tinge of hops in the aftertaste. Interesting hybrid brew. 21.II.11

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It comes in an elegant bottle. There is a small booklet talking about the beer around the neck. I expected it to be fancy @ 9$ a bottle but it is Witbier, we will see how good of a witbier.
Pours darker than a normal witbier, but with the familiar giagantic foaming head. I like the darker color in comparison to most Hoegaarden-like Witbiers that are almost clear.
It smells more intense than a normal Wit, with orange and corriander being the obvious high points, but there is some other non orangey fruitiness too.
The taste is super fruity, tons of sugary orange in this one. There is also osme white peach in there too, it pairs nicely with food. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery but it finishes pretty dry.
This is an odd beer, it isn’t that bad, it isn’t worth the price but it isn’t a bad beer at all. I wasn’t expecting this high caliber brew for this brewery or this distinct of a brew.

Bottle. Golden/yellow hazy with a thin white head. Smells of banana, coriander and citrus. Taste is thin and watery with a lot of sweetness and a little to sour finish. Need some more balance.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, Innisfil, Ontario, Canada.
Picked this up from the LCBO on a whim and have been converted to the cult of Spanish brew. Outstanding creamy head, gorgeous blonde pour. Coriander nose, orange peel. Sweet going down, very very smooth, fruity. Citrus, orange peel. Excellent bitterness on the backend. A shocker here; I love this one and would do it over and again. Nicely played!

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a large white head. Decent lacing. Mild aroma of citrus, wheat and spice. Flavor is similar with a little bitterness. Nice easy to drink beer. For the cost it doesn’t deliver.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden color with about an inch and a half frothy off-white head. Head retention is good and there’s a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells mostly like wheat/grain, along with some orange peel and a bit of coriander. The taste is just like the aroma, it tastes mostly like wheat/grain, along with some coriander and orange peel. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium and has high carbonation. Drinkability is OK, it’s not hard to drink. Not a bad brew overall, it was nice to try but I don’t think I would ever buy it again.
