2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Witbier with spelt - which is not that special anymore in this style these days. Off-white, thin but stable head, ochre yellowish blonde colour, misty with minuscule flakes floating around. Aroma of chicken soup, bread, orange, ginger, grains, peach, cloves, fried eggs. Soft, subdued sweetishness in the taste, faintly fruity, light citrus touch, smooth maltiness, bit wheaty and sourish which is probably the spelt speaking, thin finish with no body worth mentioning.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (BBE 2007). Hazy yellow colour with a small creamy white head. Aroma is like sour wheat along with some spices and herbs as well as some yeast. Flavour is quite much the same with a rather biting carbonation. Some slight earthy and cardboardy notes as well.

Bottle. Hazy, pale golden colour with a small white head. Bready and grassy nose. Sweet and bready flavours with some grassy hop bitterness. Spicy rye is prominent. A bit thin. Quite enjoyable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale, a bit hazy yellow color, small white head. Strong malty ryiesh nose. Flat lemonade feeling in the palate. Malty, no bitterness, rye in the flavor. I suppose this bottle was propably bad one or this spelt beer is really unbalanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Slightly hazy, very pale yellow color with a smallish, tight, white head. Slightly sweet, witbier-spicy aroma with hay-lemony-hoppy hints. Fresh, slightly sweet-sour flavor of wheat and lemon. Light to medium-bodied, quite refreshing palate with slightly fizzy carbonation. A quite nice and crisp witbier.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very good, dense white head; pale yellow beer with greenish shine, slight haze. Milky nose, and the aroma of raw (fresh) egg. Later a more wheaty aroma and some coriander, lightly perfumed. Citrussy, lightly perfumed taste, not unpleasant, but with a distinct déjà-vu effect. Ends still a bit spicey. Rather refreshing, light body but not watery. Another contender for the "we-will-all-brew-the-same-dreary-witbier-unt concours. Seems to be obligatory for any brewer on the global beerrace, these days. Not even the worst by far.
