3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ El Corte Inglés, Barcelona.
Pours hazy pale golden with a nice, creamy, white head. Super duration on the head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, some wheat, lemons, light banana and green apples. Medium carbonation, fine lightly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is grainy, wheat, sweet wheat, cloves and ginger. Overall, there is a green apple notes that only gets stronger as it heats up. Light bitter finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow orange unfiltered with aroma of corriander, wheat and wet dog. Taste is dry grainy and drab with vegetal sorghum notes. Not happy about this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was fun. Light straw color. Had some white pepper and citrus in the nose. Lots of head -- really carbonated. Sugar with malt and some citrus in the taste. Felt that it had a good end, not sour. Did seem a bit overpriced; maybe a bit hyped in the packaging. Still, enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.75 L bottle from Vinmonopolet. Big fluffy offwhite head. Cloudy, deep golden colored body. Light floral and soft wheaty aroma. Also some phenoloc notes, spices and a plastic-like scent. Light-bodied with a rather sugary malt flavor. Mildly spiced, a slight citric fruitiness. A faint sourness in the finish. Goes well down, but not a very attractive Wit.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear straw yellow with a voluminous white head that takes a while to fade, making it bothersome to actually pour this. Light wheat, a little musky coriander, and a touch of orange. I don’t get the licorice on the nose, but it does turn up faintly later in the finish. Thin to medium bodied, but due to the abundance of carbonation, it feels a little bigger than that. Nice wheat profile, but a little bit grainy. Finishes a bit spicy and with some of the missing licorice. The over carbonation makes it a bit tough to drink, but it’s not bad. It is however, overpriced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml Bottle. Cloudy orange color with light head and lacing. Yeasty aroma with touches of citrus and licorice. A very nice light taste with some subtle textures and flavors that aren’t common in most of the Witbier’s I’ve tried.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear straw colour with a medium white head. Aromas of good and plenty candy, orange peel, and some sweet malt. Flavor is quite light with more licorice, orange peel, a hint of coriander, and sweet malt. I found this beer to be a bit watery and weak.

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.
