Bottle shared at tasting. Thanks!
Not surprised that one of my preferred witbiers is one of the lower rated ones, as I typically donít like the style...
Pours cloudy, hazy and yellowish. Smell is like orangina. Strong citrusy and fresh with a slight bit of yeast behind that, perhaps.
Taste is dry, wheaty and orange, and refreshing and easy to drink. Nice carbonation and body. Pretty nice, I thought, but Iím not too knowledgable on the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/green:ish with creamy head. Fresh aroma of citrus and bubblegum. Weird, almost dry, taste of pineapple, spice and more bubblegum. Quite watery, however, and not much of a finish. Rather interesting on the whole, and very refreshing. Is it really a beer?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vastly underated in my opinion. This use to be a favorite of mine before I was into beer. It pours with a creamy white head with good lacing and retention. Hazy, light yellow body with plenty of bubbles running up the side. Smells very fruity with lemon (not hoppy lemon, but the fruit), blueberry and pineapple. Taste might be a bit artificial, but it is lightly citrusy and just as ultra refreshing as I remember. Dry mouth and bubbly carbonation; "palate" is the weakest part of this beer

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Super sweet pineapple/banana aroma. Cloudy light yellow with small head. Sweet pineapple juice and wheat malt flavor. Like no other witbier Iíve ever had - this is more like a US brewpubís fruit beer or a light version of the sweet fruit lambics.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Muddy blond color, with big head. It has a very artificial aroma, of lemon; also spicy and soapy. Quite sweet, with just a light wheat touch, as well as spicy/lemony/soapy impression. Itís drinkable just because itís sweet, but I have a serious conscience problem here. So fake!
Just keep in mind that itís brewed with corn and wheat (no barley) and with artificial flavoringsÖ

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wheat beers need to be drunk in gulps and therefore a 33cl bottle is not enough. This beer has a cloudy, warm, but pale, yellow appearance and a thick, very white head. Good lacing. Being partial when it comes to wheat beers I might be bias, but I did find this beer pretty pleasurable. My 10 yr old reckoned it smelt of pizza. I then realized the oregano smell and flavour was quite strong. It also tastes strongly of lemon and grapefruit. I am sure stronger carbonation would have been to its advantage.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Thin dense white head. Foggy pale yellow colored body. Chemical and artificial lemon aroma. Notes of perfume and spices. Dry and light sour fruit flavors. Thin and sharp mouthfeel. Not impressive... a Witbier-wannabe.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pale, hazy gold with a big white head. Off-putting aroma of stale grain, coriander, citrus and yeast. The mouth feel was soupy with more coriander, indeterminate spices and a rough, sour finish. In my experience, the worst wheat beer.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy yellow with a dense white head. Aroma of lemon and some othe sweet fruit, maybe pineapple along with some minor notes of fermented green grapes. Flavor was pretty sour, like a bad dry whitewine mixed with a regular pale lager. Wierd that the flavor wasnt sweet, considering the aroma. High on carbonation.
