3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 Bottle (a very stylish one), 75cl, from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. BB May 2010. Huge white head, slowly settling down to a permanent film, leaving a nice lace pattern. Hazy pale yellow/orange colour. Nose of ripe fruit, yeast, citrus, coriander seed. Watery mouthfeel, soft carbonation, feels a bit dull. Nicely balanced taste, though. Watery metallic aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 0,75l (Arkadia)
Slightly hazy yellow color, mostly vanishing white head. Aroma of lemon dish cleanser and wheat. Fizzy carbonation. Light sweetish fruity flavor with orange and coriander notes. Also quite grainy. Michelin star cook can’t brew. Boring and thin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden colour, with a good head that holds for a while and leaves a lace. Smell is clean, some spices, coriander, citrus, all very faint, I can’t appreciate the liquorice. Watery in the tongue, it tastes of spices, banana and flowers. I think is a try to make a wit beer adapted to the big market, with te results one can expect: nothing to do with the real thing, though is refreshing and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Classy 750 ml bottle that could pass for wine, which is the point. Comes with a little promotional booklet tied around its neck. Pours light gold, slightly hazed. Really nice cirrus aroma. Flavor is that of a somewhat mild witbier. Citrusy, but not really tart. Good with food? Well, sure, but the same could be said of many wits. It could replace white wine, but 750 ml of wine goes further than the same amount of beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy yellow-ish golden color with a medium white head. Spicy aroma with coriander, yeast, some citrus and light floral notes. Sweet wheaty flavor, with some yeast, lemony and light orangey notes, mild fruit esters and a drier finish with soft spiciness. Medium-bodied. Quite boring but still a decent easy-drinking Wit.
