3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I must say I was almost not taking this one serious due to the extreme hype that it was made for me about it. Fortunatly, me foolness passed: what a pleasant surprise! Poured opaque light orange with a pretty white foam. The aroma got me with a lot of hop herbs, some yeastiness and even some citrus: pinapple and some orange; some sourness. The flavor came with little sourness coming with little sweetness as well, very well balanced. Some orange peel, little malty and mainly hoppy flavor, refreshing mouthfeel and aftertaste, that lacked a little more taste in it. Quite nice introduction to the witbiers for me! / Devo dizer que tinha algum preconceito com essa cerveja, dado o tanto que falavam pra mim dela. Felizmente, deixei de ser bobo: que surpresa agradável! Derrama laranja claro opaco com uma boa espuma branca. O aroma veio com bastante lúpulo (ervas), algo de levedura e ainda um pouco cítrico: abacaxi e laranja; algum azedume. O sabor trouxe um pouco de azedo e um pouco de doce, muito bem balanceado. Trouxe também algo de raspas de laranja, pouco malte e bastante sabor de lúpulo. A sensação na boca e no retrogosto é bem refrescante, mas faltou um pouco de sabor no final. Uma introdução muito boa das witbiers pra mim!

Classic wheat beer, light but flavorful. Clean taste, with hints if citrus and dough.

one of the best white beers around. Demonstrates the clear superiority of belgian white beers over german weissbier. Very refreshing though interesting aromas.

A great introduction to the style because of its accessibility. Still quite good but not great. Orange and lemon carry this beer and it is much better when served in the cool hexagonal glass and poured correctly. Heed the instructions. The body leaves something to be desired but nobody’s perfect. One of the finest widely available brews and one I go back to when nothing piques my curiosity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light hazy straw color with a white head. Smells of coriander, light lemon, and bready malt. Tastes similar to smell.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy pale yellow with medium plus head. Medium nose of citrus and fruity yeast, whiff of perfumed spice. Medium lively on the palate, light bodied, dry and some citrus freshness, semi-sweet creamy midpalate and short finish. Can’t get around that it is one-dimensional and dull, doesn’t inspire to finish the bottle. I feel certain I’m done buying this one even when the only alternatives in a pub are all InBev.

I like this beer for the value. A crisp, refreshing flavor, good for lunch. It reminds me of soda, only better.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bright yellow pour, slightly hazy, with a tall light fluffy head. It has aroma of lemon and spice . The flavor is slightly complex. When taken as a large swallow it starts slightly citrus and finishes spicy and very clean. An excellent white beer.

White beer with a medium head when poured and bottle swirled. Very spicy scent, but a sweet flavour. The scent becomes overbearing toward the end. Not by favorite Belgian, but still a good beer.
