2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted 22/11/2008. 330ml bottle from beerstore.co.nz. Hazy gold with a thin white head. Looks tired. Smells and tastes it too but has a nice fruitiness and peppery coriander spice that makes me think it would be a delicious alternative to ’the big un’ if you could get it fresh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours surprisingly clear golden beer with a tall white head. The nose is of cork, melon, glue, oranges, coriander and banana - rather strong. Faintly watery body. Quite a lot of cork again in the taste which has notes of banana, orange, lemon, cloves and coriander. Sweet. Some melon sneaking in. This beer gets slightly cloying after a few sips. Acidic. Some lacework. Residual sugars accompanied by cork and coriander in the finish. Pleasant, complex but with a mediocre palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A semi-clear, golden, well-carbonated beer producing a dense, white head of moderate size. Banana dominates the aroma, but there’s also wheat, and a touch of spices. Some orange and lemon too. Somehow, it reminds me more of a german hefeweizen than of a witbier, and that impression continues in the flavor. It’s banana-dominated, with some spices and citrus, and also a wheatyness. Medium to full body, with a good effervescence. The finish continues in the same way as the initial flavor, and has a little bitterness added. Refreshing and easy to drink, though it might be a bit gassy in the long run. Not an outstanding beer, but good. (081019)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle.Very pale yellow, slightly cloudy. White foamy head didn’t last. Grainy and fruity aroma. Tastes quite fruity/citrusy, and a little spicy. A nice wit. I think my bottle is quite out of date so its held up pretty well.
