3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Mekong. Properly thick haze, very slightly darker yellow than some other wits. Aroma is grainy wheat. Flavor is a match. Some very faint spice notes on the finish, but more yeast driven than the traditional coriander. No apparent citrus notes either. Although maybe not a traditional wit in some ways, it was a refreshing wheat beer that worked with the hot weather outside.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the Great Japan Beer Festival, Osaka, 2011.
A typical Belgian Wit, very spicy, with orange. Sweeter than it should be. Not bad, but not really a good wit—too sweet, too much spice, but ok.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (25 cl) from La Marché de Nathalie Brasserie, Bouillon, Belgium. Cloudy milk golden, large rocky white head. Overwhelming spicy aroma with soapy and perfumy coriander notes, and with a presumably nice phenolic and estery yeast character hovering in the background. Medium bodied and soft. Dry with low bitterness. This could propbably be a very good Wit with more reasonable amount of spices. Right now, it’s just a mess.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample from Académie De La Bière. Pale yellow with haze and strong carbonation. Aromas are of orange, wheat, and mild coriander. Fairly subdude in the mouth, but the typical witbier coriander/citrus/wheat combo is still qutie apparent. Light bodied. A bit sucked out, but fairly well balanced. One could do much worse.
