3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some mild banana esters underpin the lightly spicy and floral sweet aroma. Opaque golden wheat coloured body is topped by a low white head that recedes to a lasting partial cover with some spotty lacing. Flavour has some lemon, some banana and a light bitterness. Crisp carbonation and medium-light body is quite refreshing. Tulip glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at the BCLS at Hellsgate in Oct-09.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Poured almost clear, yellow with a white head. Citrus, floral and malt driven aroma. Light spiced with a cracker malt and pilsner quality. Light citrus notes, but nothing much really going on with this.

750. Pours a hazy straw body with a white head. Unattractive skunk y lemon malt aroma. Light coriander and citrus, more light lemon with a thin body. Eh.

Bottle. Pale blonde, hazy. Coreander, anis and citrus in the aroma. Thin and sweetish. Traubenzucker, lemon, coreander and apple in the flavor. Pleasant summer beer without much depth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful 750ml bullet bottle. Pours a cloudy but clear glowing straw slightly dark golden with a nice dense frothy white sudsy head. Aroma is heavily spiced and moderately sweet, lemon, fruit and lots of coriander, but in a rounded way, i can detect the licorice , it really smoothes it out. The aromatic licorice really coats the flavor, candied but not cloying crisp wheat and lemon, quick finish with lingering coriander aftertaste and a bit of light licorice. The body is fantastic, light, airy, great crisp carbonation without being sharp or abrasive, clean, just a touch chalky. The palate is perfect, the aroma is nice, unfortunately the licorice seems to dull or soften and overshadow any brightness or acidity from the wheat. A very nicely done Wit that has all the right delicacies. Horribly underrated. This beer would be amazing if it were made sour.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating 500. Nice looking wine shaped bottle, even comes with a story packet! How about that. Pours a slightly hazy bright yellow color, with a decent head upon pouring that dissipates rather quickly. First thing you notice is how smoooooth this beer is on the palate, almost goes down without leaving a trace. Very soft malt and wheat flavors to begin, middle is slightly grainy wheat notes, finishes with hints of said spices, coriander, citrus peel and licorice. Goes down amazingly smooth. This is a well made beer, if nothing else.

Pours a very hazy golden lemon with thick white head. Aroma is very earthy and herbs. Flavor is very earthy, hay/oats. I don’t get very much orange coming across. Definitely some spicy notes. Body is creamy with medium carbonation.
