UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 500ml bottle. floral aroma, fruity taste: citrus, orange, hint of strawberry, far far too sweet and leaves a similar aftertaste. almost a pretentious alcopop. Price counts against it aswell.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Half Pint, Draught. Cool, fruity citrus aromas, more distinct than other commercial witbier. The taste, however, was highly dissapointing - reminded me of drinking sherbert lemonade or smirnoff ice. It was also extremely sweet. It has the look of a faint white beer (like Hoegaarden) but less head. Looks can be deceptive...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (BB 09/2006)
Just released in Finland - the first Kronenbourg here with a big importer and some advertising. Hazy pale yellow, small white head. Aroma has wheat, yeast and leather. Semi-carbonated, sourish witbier. A bit fruity, not very spicey (more like sourish). Sourness and orange peel in the aftertaste. This is quite interesting mix of lambic and orangy witbier but a bit empty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Yellow hazy colour, mediumsized white head. Strong orange aroma, with wheaty and citric hints. The flavour is strong orange along with other fruits and a bit wheat. Easy to drink, and refreshing. So Kronenbourg is trying to break the witbier style by doing a lemonadeish version (the orange added...). Well, I still quite liked it, but be warned...

Draught at Ferdinand in Gothenburg Sweden, on the guest tap so not sure for how long they’ll have it.
Pale shady light yellow color with a white creamy head. Very strong scent that feels mostly sour. A bit watery but fresh taste. Pretty much no bitterness. Sour aftertaste.
