3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Re-rate: liked just as much as the last time i had it. Hints of orange peel coriander on the nose, with slight hints of apple and pepper. Sweetish palate, with an apple juice flavour. Slight bitter finish, but also a slight alcoholic finish, which was the only down point on this beer, otherwise fine.

Delicate, complex & spicy. Incredibly filling has a beautiful appearance especially when in it’s appropriate glass. Thumbs up.

I’m not the greatest favourite of white beer, but I won’t neglect this famous belgian beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow color in the style of belgian wheats. Firm head, with longlasting lacing. Taste is very spicy, citrus-elements, and complex in a way it’s heavy on the stomach (what’s the english expression?). It’s more a strong German Wheat, instead of a Belgian one. Spicy palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep blonde, with a nice smooth yet full body, OK head. Reasonably complex, easygoing with just a hint of fire showing through. Goes down well, finishes with nuts in the mouth. (yes I am talking about a beer here!)

Smells like the wit with more floral aroma--taste is much fruitier and spicier with less yeast. Finish is smooth but not delivering completely in the flavor department. I still have no idea what a grand cru is supposed to be, but this was good...probably better than the with in my opinion.
