3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was attracted to this beer by its novelty and have come to savor its broad palate of flavors. A fun one to drink, very fruity. Itís not as great from a bottle, but if you can get it on tap in one of the round chalice-like glasses, itís worth any extra cost.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 Bottle. Grapefruit juice colour, nice white head. Quite spicey (lots of coriander), with almost no trace of orange (maybe felt it once), suprisingly refreshing. Itís overall, quite an enjoyable white.

Bottle. Fruity and yeasty. Cloudy yellow body. Enjoyable, but not remarkable.

Cloudy pale yellow with a tall white head. Aroma is sweet wheat and malt. Flavor is mild wheat and then a little sour. Palate is refreshing and mildly sour.

Sour and sweet, light and complex. I havenít found any better example of Witbier yet. One of my favourites.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Finally getting around to rating this after just having it on tap recently. Nice cloudy yellow pour, huge frothy head. Coriander in aroma. Taste is what you would expect from the style - coriander, hint of banana, but very dry and altogether too watered down. Finish is very short and crisp. For a macro, not bad, but there are far better examples of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle, room temp, bought in UK supermarket. Small, fizzy, white diminishing head, over uniformly cloudy light yellow. Aroma of oranges, coriander root, clove, digestive biscuit and yeast - no obvious hops. Medium body, fizzy (added CO2?) and chalky. Flavour has notes of coriander and orange, but really quite bland. Hard to believe this is the same beer you get on draught in Belgium (if it is). Avoid on draught in the UK - itís served much too cold (Interbrew recommend 4C!)

Pours extremely pale color, murky white. This is a good measuring stick for comparing witbiers. Not any flaws in this beer but nothing about it really stands out either. Aroma is of citrus and vanilla. Flavor and mouthfeel are dry like champagne. Nice and easy to drink.
