2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy light yellow with a decent sized white head. Big bubbly head that recedes to a thin coat in a matter of seconds. Little lacing, almost non-existent. Looks like a typical Belgian Wit.
Spicy nose. Mostly peppery in the spice department. Little bit of green tea scent. And something a little on the foul side, not sure what it is - almost like a spoiled cream. A little malt in the nose. Musty wood.
Tastes like Arizona green tea watered down with a weak lager. Although it looks and tastes more like a bad wit instead of a lager.
Thin, acrid. Carbonation makes it a little bit acidic. Not impressive.
Easy to drink and the off-aromas and flavors don’t linger around too long. Quite bland if you don’t think about the slight offness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
17-jan-2011, bottle at Utrecht based Japanese restaurant. In the restaurant I thought this was a real Japanese beer, but it appears to be brewed in Belgium... Hazy pale yellow beer with white head. Spicy aroma, with hints of citrus (reminded me of hefeweizen). Taste is pretty sweet, and perhaps a little unbalanced. I quite enjoyed it though.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out yellow, light orange, cloudy. Medium head, should hold some longer, but sticks nice to the glass. Smell is spiced, citrus, hops. Something less pleasant at the smell, maybe the tea? Taste is citrus and spices, some wheat and hops. Not my thing, but I expected worse.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First smell seems to indicate boiled patatoes, but this is probably the green tea. Colour is citrus/orange and cloudy. Taste of herbs (probably the green tea and the citrus). Overall this is a very light fresh beer that would probably be even better at a warm summer evening.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light blonde, small white head. Aroma is slightly flowerish, like a witbier with lemon-aroma. Strange taste by the green tea, a bit sweet, drinks like a witbier. not that bad at all. Thirstquencher.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2011 30/10/2010 - 33cl bottle, sample @ ISPC Gent
Pours a clear yellow beer, just a little bit cloudy. White creamy adhesive head. Aroma holds malts, hops, some spices and grass. MF is a little flat, light body, creamy texture. Taste is pretty bitter, coffee like, and malty. Aftertaste has coffee bitters and hop bitters, some spices. I have no idea what they want to achieve, but this is like cold coffee or tea (if you want) with some hops.
Note: sampled again 14/7/2011, bottle now 10 months older. Distinct aroma and flavour of cooked white asparagus. Doesn’t change anything to my rating.
