3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours an unclear, pale golden with a rather tall, white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus and coriander. Rather light-bodied with plenty of fresh fruit, but quite a different fruit profile than in your typical Belgian Wit. Perhaps a wee accent of coconut? Very fresh, would be the perfect summer quencher. 270106

Bottled (Courtesy of BBB63 - thanks): Golden coloured. Light hazy. Fluffy off white head. Fruit, spices and yeast in the nose. Quite subtle aromas. Fruits, sweetness and light grassy notes in the flavour. Is somehow grapish and light sour. Has a spicy touch. Is grapish and light sour in the end. Quite refreshing. Listening to the beer is like standing on the waterfront on a calm evening with the waves silently splashing on the brink. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle-pours nice hazy neon yellow with a small fizzy white head with a nice level of fuzzy carbonation. big orange peal aroma with some of that oak/beachwood coming through. complex spicy flavors with corriander, oak, lemons, hay, but really doesnt taste like any other wit i have ever had. the oak comes through more as it warms, creating a very woodsy note. very complex for such a low abv beer. I will have to rerate this one with a full bottle (i only got one sample).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy pale golden color with an almost Duvel sized white head that fades agonizingly slow. There’s a thick rocky cap left that leaves as well as tons of lacing after the head fades. Impressive.
Smell; slightly sweet to start, with some lemon and orange zest. There’s a bit of a peppery spiciness with some vanilla, and just a hint of hay.
Taste; initiialy the citric flavors really stand out with the lemon and orange. After a few sips a bit of vanilla and a woody presence show up, with a nice drying spiciness in the finish. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp, with plenty of carbonation. This is one refreshing beer that is very easy to drink.

Bottle, from Julio’s. Sharp yeasty. Lemon, corriander, I thought I was getting a corn thing, maybe it was the yeast. I don’t know. Clean yellowy gold color, nice head and lacing. Soft tart flavor, like aroma. Lemon in the forefront, spice too. Medium body, lite crisp mouthfeel, bitter lemony mouthfeel. Kind of nice, easy to drink, I’m just not a witbier kind of beer drinker.
