3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy grey-yellow colour with an off-white head. Not much aroma, the grain does come through slightly. Taste is a little sweet but has a balancing dryness. It has more flavour than some wheat beers, but the finish is short. I wouldn’t say this was refreshing exactly, but it’s not bad all the same.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kris Wines. Opaque amber, medium white foam head which dissipates to thin at edges. Nose is fragrant, fruity, coriander, lemon, lemon peel, a lot of wheat cereal grain, toasty grain, slight grass, lemon creamy. Taste is fragrant, floral, lemon, wheat and barley grain, coriander. It’s a decent wittier. Not a huge amount of finish on it though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Winter version of the classic Hoegaarden Witbier, with crystal malt. Hazy peach blonde colour, off-white, creamy head; aroma of honey, pineapple slices in syrup, powder sugar, caramel, nuts, bread. Sweet and smooth in the mouth with spicy notes, relatively ’genuine’ for an AB InBev beer, but too sugary, with low hop bitterness in the finish. Simple winter beer, not too convincing, but acceptable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
* Old rating, best before 04/10/10. Mild-fruchtiges Witbier. Milde Hefe, keine Herbe und die typischen Witbier-Aromen harmonieren gut. Schönes Bier!
