Beer 111 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/22/06 @ a little side walk kiosk in Copenhagen. Not bad, had to try it for the bottle and my friend Josh who used to love Kronenbourg.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
25cl bottle. Citrus aroma, with hints of sourness. Pours cloudy yellow. Flavor is actually nice, reminds me of a berliner weisse mixed with a wit, berliner wit? ha. seriously though, good citrus flavor, orange with lemons, some nice tartness, with spices and some sweetness. The more i drank the more pineapple i got. not great not horrible.

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, poured a very ugly milky pale gold with a tightly foamed white head. A very strong zesty cirtus aroma with the apricot coming through cleanly as well - actually smells good. The mouthfeel is a little like thin and off milk - hardly appertising. Someone said the flavour is like diluted orange juice, and that is spot on. A little yeast coming through, but not much like your typical (enjoyable) witbeir. Though better than your standard Kronenbourg - but that’s not saying much.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Best bit of this one is appearance - Cloudy peach colour with thick creamy white head. Unbalanced. Strong citrus aroma, flavour apricot, lemon. Thin mouthfeel, refreshing but over sweet and very artificial tasting. A little ’beer flavour’ on the swallow. Aftertaste a little cacky. Pretty unconvincing as a wit, and very overpriced. Poor.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Blue bottle] Pale, hazy yellow. Dense head. Strong citrus aroma. Watery mouth feel; tastes like diluted orange juice. Witbier has never been one of my favourite styles and this certianly didn’t help.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Poured a hazy whitish-yellow color. Bubbly white disappearing head that left a bit of tattered lace behind. Strong lemony citrus aroma and flavor supported by only a touch of coriander and a little yeasty bread dough. More like a spiced lemon lime soda that a wit.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow color. Unclear. Has a white head, medium lasting. Aroma of citrus, flowers, perfume. A bid acidity, lemon, acetic-acid in flavor. Very carbonated.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a can, hazy yellow with a nice head. Aroma was wheaty and citrus as was the flavour but with a syrupy fake sweeter note.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 The clumsiest and most cynical attempt at a style I’ve ever encountered. Hideously sugary, neat cordial/ Rowntree’s pineapple jelly nose. A tongue-curlingly artificial attack of sicky citric fruit and vile aspartame bitterness. Redeemed only by a fleeting wheaty note after the swallow. It’s not often I find a beer genuinely offensive to the senses, but this is something else. A disgracefully chemical attempt to cash-in on the lucrative popularity of Hoegaarden etc. Smirnoff Ice and RWhites brew better beers than this.
