Pour is orange and cloudy with a nice fluffy white head that faded too quickly...smell is citrus, orange zest and lemon, coriander, cloves, and yeast...along with a hint of alcohol...taste is sweet at first with more citrus fruits, then some serious alcohol with a touch of yeast...tastes like Hoegaarden Speciale but higher grav...finish is sweet and alcohol...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy, citric aroma, some spicy hop along with the lemon, orange and tangerine accents, also some coriander and allspice, wheat malt and very light honeyish sweetness. Opaque medium golden orange color with a very creamy, bountiful, lasting head and lacing to match. Strongly fruity and spicy flavor profile, very citric and full of yeast esters including banana, clove, coriander and pepper, lots of juicy orange and bitter lemon. Some bitterness apparent towards the finish, which is also lightly astringent and warming. Palate is highly effervescent, body is medium-full. Rich, fruity, spicy beer. Akin to what I’ve come to know as a "Double Wit". 33cl bottle, sampled at De Beiaard, Amsterdam, unfortunately quite a smoky environment.

Sweet candy on the nose. Fruity flavor that has notes of candy, gum and some spices. Very smooth and quaffable.

White head, middle-lasting, on top of a hazy dark yellow/orange body. Nice, enticing white beer aroma and a taste that makes you dream of a very good fresh wine. Definitely and easily drinkable, this is definitely a beer for all occsions.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange beer with a huge lasting white head. Loads of coriander in the nose along with some bubble gum/cotton candy. Lightly spicy flavour. Alcohol is well hidden, this is dangerously drinkable. Fruity flavour along with some light bitterness on the finish. Similar to the wit, but has a bit more of everything.

Yes very complex and sophisticated but wouldn’t want to have to drink this stuff regularly. I think I’m missing something with these Belgium beers... give me a half decent Czech pilsner any day over this so called beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy light copper with a lasting large white head. Spicy doughy yeast aroma with some light citrus & fruit behind it. Smooth medium-full mouthfeel. Flavour starts sweet/fruity and finish is quite spicy. Alcohol shows through a little on the aftertaste. Still nice stuff though.
