3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft ! I had this after the blue moon white(BMW)
A pale yellow milky beer it was lighter than BMW the white head was moussy with a few choice peaks. The aroma was spices vanilla,nutmeg and some faint citrus.It tasted yeasty and wheaty
the citrus is subdued but the coriander spiciness blends well.Some sweetness
but its thin body and lively carbonation
rounded all the edges.Very Drinkable and better than BMW but it was twice the price.

Tap at Café Amsterdam (Copenhagen). Served in big-ass Hoegaarden glass. Cloudy, pale yellow. Nice head. A pretty beer. Aroma and flavor are both very friendly and harmonious; fresh coriander and citrus, some yeast. Supremely drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Tasted this one years back, but it seems to have been ’mass market’ modernised now, as it didn’t appear to be the same as it once was!. Tasted from the bottle and poured into its own stumpy tumbler. Pours an opaque pale ’wheat’ yellow, with a short dense and creamy head. Aromas of spicy coriander, fell second to a candy sugar sweetness that was cloying prior to even the first sip. In the mouth, a smooth, lightly carbonated, pasty and yeasty palate revealed light citric zest and candy sugar sweetness, cloying and gluggy, with no lactic yeast and wheat hit or spicy balance. Still, all else aside, it is oddly sessionable, though cloyingly sweet and not what I remember it as....

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my last "accessible" beers to be rated. Poured a murky white (with the yeast) with a tall fizzy white head. Aroma is light citrusy spice. Taste is very well-rounded mild spiciness with sublte fruit undertones. The flavor seemed somewhat less profound than Allagash White, but this beer gets extra points for pure drinkability. Consumed at slightly above refrigerator temperature, it is thirst-quenching and quite satisfying. It’s simply sweet and subtle character makes it an excellent companion to simpler salty richer foods. I drank it alongside a chicken parmigiana dinner and the pairing was near perfect.
