3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super clear golden colour.
Focused malt aromas, getting some bread, sitrus flavours aswell. A hint of something tropical with a touch of banana to it.
Nice creamy foam, clear yeast tones followed by autolyse in a long aftertaste. The tropical flavours ar also present here, but mainly yeastflavours.
This dry witbier is made for food, with itīs clear yeast, sitrus and floral components. A really good mouthfeel, but it lacks some concentration.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 Seemed pretentious but was pleasantly surprised by this one. Appearance was yellow, white head, good lacing, cloudy gold. Moderate yeast, wheaty. Lightly sweet flavor, short duration. Light to medium body, dry texture, soft carb, metallic finish. Itís actually been awhile singe I made these notes, Iím going to have to pick up another bottle...forgot how much I enjoyed this one.
Well, picked up that "another" bottle. I must have reviewed this one after a number of others and been buzzed. Itís still good, but not near as good as I thought the first time. Dropped this one down to a more appropriate score after re-reviewing.

Pours a light straw yellow with a big fizzy white head. Aroma citrus wheat and grain. Taste is mostly citrus with wheat backing. Weak beer in body and flavour. Boring.

Pours a hazy yellow with a large white head. The aroma is citric, tart and spicy. The flavor has... Well a big hole in it. There is no mid palate, at all. Weak..

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange/yellow, medium white head, quickly dissipated, skim is rather persistent however, lacing is spotty to poor. Nose is lemons, wheat, spice, pepper, smells rather Sorachi-Ace-ish. Flavours are spicy and creamy, soft and fruity, lots of wheat. For all the build-up that I heard about this, boooooooooooooooorrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnn

Pours honey yellow with almost no head. Aroma is slighltly skunky and sour. Flavour is very nice light hopy and refreshing. not terribly complex but a nice and drinkable brew none the less. Not great but very drinkable.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. A witbier? really? Clear gold pour, thin white head. Bad grainy aroma, some weak spice, generally speaking quite like a budweiser. Taste is also a miss, grainy slightly off sweetness that never gets good. Almost made it a drainpour, but drank it like a bud instead and it turned out fine that way.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - 750ml. Hazy golden body with a thin white creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and bubble gum hints. Taste is rather thin and carries coriander and grainy notes. It ends with a short herbal/yeasty finish. Not bad, but not a great Witbier.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Looks cool coming out of the unique bottle. Amber with a good lasting head. Scent is herbal soap, very strong herbal presence. Sweet herbal flavour with a lighter soap note than in the nose. I donít get the licorice unfortunately. As it warms the soapiness is lost in the herbal cream body. I would not have guess it as a White beer but like a herbal cream beer.
