1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle, bought in England. Looks all right but is full of ridiculously artificial fruit flavours. It gives to me the impresion of a bad copy of a Belgian witbier - didn’t like it at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy, light straw with a nice foamy head. Citrus, banana, pineapple, and peach. Pretty inviting aroma. Flavor is similar to the aroma but muted. Citrus, banana, and pineapple with some yeast. Medium/thin body. It’s not bad, but not what I expect in a witbier.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a lacy white head. Aroma is citrus with a vague vanilla characteristic. Taste is the same. Not bad, but there’s just something off about this beer, and I can’t quite put my finger on what it is.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Cloudy whitish yellow colour. Throws atall fine-laced white head. Soapy and metallic lemon aroma. Soft texture. Flavour is much like Pez. Smooth wheat flavours and lots of citrus, mostly lemon. Nicely balanced, but feels somewhat artificial. That said it is quite drinkable and refreshing.

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.
