4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the hotel restaurant with my dinner of duck confit in Paris. Sounds more exotic than it really was. Pours a medium to light gold, nice head. Aroma is wheat and an almost lime note. Flavor is a close match - a good bit of coriander, and instead of the typical orange peel notes, something that comes off more like lime or bergamot. Refreshing, and surprisingly enjoyable. Liked this one.

Taste; wheat malts, sweet citric hops, coriander, clove, ginger, cinnamon, coffee, chocolate,
Normal on palate, lively carbonated. Finishes fruity, still fresh. Overall likeable brew which makes a kind of standard for witbiers.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap in Paris. Light golden colored, hazy with a minimal fast vanishing head. The aroma is dominated by citrus with some wheat. The taste is sour with citrus and slightly fruity wheat flavors in the finish. The light body with soft carbonation and the thin texture makes it a good thirst quencher. Overall, however, just an average wit.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, BBE 01/15. Pours a slightly hazy, hale yellow with a rather small blanket of white foam. Well, not even a blanket really. Aroma is rather sweet with lemon, coriander and peach. Taste is lightly sour, fairly sweet, lemon and coriander, some bubblegum, light wheat. Rather fruity, a bit watery. Rather thin with medium carbonation. Surprisingly thin for something this strong. I guess it’s due to the syrup and sugar.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soft white fast fading head and a nearlz fully opaque sun yellow colour. On the nose aromas of wheat, light citrus/lemon, hints of wet green leaves and notches of vanilla and coriander arise. Light lively texture, light body with a light bitter sweet taste. The finish is soft and somewhat short-medium. Balanced beer but also rather one dimensional in taste compared to the aroma.
