3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty much just a typical Belgian witbier with licorice. The licorice does add another level of interest and is a very nice subtle improvment. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Attractive golden pour with evervescent head that releases an appealingly spicy aroma,,,coriander and citrus. Very effervescent mouthfeel with flavors of wheat, coriander, licorice, bread dough, citrus fruit...all in all a pretty refreshing wit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice, smooth wit...aroma is very subtle orange, with a bit of spice. Appearance is golden-orange and cloudy. Flavor is nice and mild, easy drinking, and a bit sweet...a tad too sweet, almost cloying. Overall, a nice alternative wit....but not very wheaty, or consistent with what I usually think of within the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml Bottle - Hazy golden in colour with a white head. Enticing aroma of tea, lemon, hops and spice. Slightly soapy taste with tea, hops, citrus and some spicy hints. The finish is spicy and hoppy with hints of tea and more soapy elements. A pleasant surprise.

Very fizzy. Lovely head. Very wine like. Citrus aroma. Light with hints of orange and spice. Could be drier. Love the bottle and the information tag around the neck. Classy and well done.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bevmo. Not worth $9.99 for the 750. Funky bready aroma. Odd liquorice and bready taste, but the orange and corriander are nice. Doesn’t really work overall.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,75 l fra Vinmonopolet. Gylden på farge: Aprikos. Pent kremaktig skum. Uklart. Syrlig fruktig aroma. Variert smak med sitrus og eple i forgrunnen. Svært søtlig bitter ettersmak. Ganske lite kullsyre. En veldig positiv overraskelse - og en pen flaskedesign. KI=2
