3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy pale amber with a small head.
Nose shows doughy wheat, lemon, soft phenols, subtle spicy hops and coriander.
Hints of banana surface as a flavour alongside the doughy wheat. Finishes with a slightly metallic bitterness. Underwhelming.
Carbonation is perhaps a little on the high side. Body feels a little watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 330ml bottle on 22/3/2011. Pours a cloudy straw colour with a reasonable head. Has a slight aroma of lemons and yeast. There is more lemon in the taste, along with oranges, and a slightly sour spiciness in the finish. A curious little wheat beer which is decent if not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 4.5%ABV. Hazy orange with a modest white head. Aroma of wheat, lemon pudding, coriander seed. Thinnish body. (Over) mild sweetness, some lemon tartness, orange peel and a spicy drying finish. Pleasant and thirst quenching. The low sweetness makes it less interesting but I could drink more of this than many Wits.

On tap. Not very interesting. Aromas of citrus and leaves. Taste is sweet and dry, with a hint of sourness, and average length. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, with a persistent head.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
28h October 2010
On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Clody gold-amber beer. No head. Light dry and crisp palate. Very dry palate!!! Mildly spicy malt. Crisp but tame hops, traces of grapefruit and orange. An okay beer but really too bloody dry mate!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Left-overs from Beer Fest Asia 2010. Having tried a few very uninspiring beers from Grand Ridge, I can’t say I was going into this beer with an open mind. Turns out it’s actually a fairly decent wit. The spices are alright, got some coriander going, the yeast is a bit AWOL but nothing unexpected. Not good enough to warrant a revisit though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy straw yellow, with a thin head. The aroma has notes of sweet lime and coriander. The initial flavour is mildly bitter, with hints of pear and spice. This moves into a slightly sweet finish, with hints of banana. A good witbier, from a fantastic Australian brewery. Another Grand Ridge classic.
