3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
250ml bottle bought at Marketplace by Jason’s in iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Cloudy, pale straw golden with traces of dusty yeast sediments; Very thin head and white foam which last for 40 seconds; Minimal lacing and notable carbonation; Fragrant aroma of malt, light perfume, floral, honey, orange, light coriander, light cloves and spices; Mid to light sweet and tart taste of light malt, with orange, coriander, yeast, cloves, spices and light citrus; Mid to light body, thin and crisp palate; Good sweetness and tartness balance, plus yeasty and light malt mouth feel. Orange and cloves elements are well presented; Hoppiness is in citrusy smell and taste, only faint note of bitterness; Slightly dry aftertaste, very easy crispy to mouth.
Comments: This one has really nice sweet aroma, with taste and mouthfeel are pretty good if somewhat less colourful then Mont-Blanc La Blanche or Hitachino Nest White Ale. Still a very good one for thirst quenching. A bigger bottle then 250ml will be better! Recommended.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy yellow with medium sized white stable head. Lacing.
Aroma.. first impression mint bubble gum, then comes wheat and some quite pushy spices, I guess coriander, butter. Quite synthetic thou not complete disaster.
Well.. its drinkable, but weird synthetic. I wont say - never again, cause theres something interesting about this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale yellow hazy color, average gasification. Head is average sized, diminishes quickly and leaves a weak film. Aroma is overwheelming lemon, and maybe bread and wheat. Body is mild, carbonation is high, aftertaste is sweet and sour. Taste is fruity, yeasty, but maybe not very well balanced. Certainly, not the best from grimbergen.
