3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 What a Wit! Hazy yellow with fizzy, popping white head. Spicy lemon and banana hit the nose straight away, though gently. Yeasty flavour with a sour kick and a bitter finish. Heavy citrus, banana, nut and spice make it a party. No longer a true trappist, but the quality is preserved. A regular in my fridge and a favourite indeed. Much enjoyed from draught while in The Dam.

Bottled. Pours hazy greenish yellow with moderate white lasting head. Aroma of yeast, malt and citrus. Flavour of wheat malt, lemon, slight banana and spice (coriander). Short sour spicy finish. Not a full belgian witbier like the Hoegaarden Wit but tasty and refreshing.

Bottled. A very hazy yellowy green coloured wit with a short-lived white head. The aroma has lemon and cream and spices. The taste is lemony, wheaty and yeasty with a little coriander. Not the fullest wit but still pleasantly tasty.

Bottle. Quite a sweet and slightly overly yeasty witbier. Slight soapy coriander spicyness and lemony acidity. Too much sweetness. And also showed a touch of alcohol, which witbiers don’t normally show.

Bottle. Hazy pale ywllow with thick white head. Aromas of berries, banana and lemons. Surprisingly sour, not sweet at all. The taste has tones of lemon and strawberries. Different from other Wit’s I’ve tasted. Not worse, just different.
