3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow. Fruity sweet aroma. Very carbonated. Sweet and a little spicey. A nice light refreshing flavor. Kinda simple but still pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 33cl (BB 09/2004)
Hazy orange color with decent white head. Fruity aroma of orange peels. Light body with roasted flavors with some herbal hops. Smooth carbonated palate. Hides alcohol very well and is refreshing - for a hot summer day. For winter this is too thin :)

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Spicy astringent aroma, talc, flowery citrus hops. Sweet neutral fruits. Cloudy butterscotch amber with creamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with active carbonation. Starts with light malt sweetness, some banana esters, wheat and yeast. Dry light bitter finish, citrusy, with a bit of astringent citrus. After is dry and astringent, but overly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle, BBD 31/09/05...Straw color, big white head...musk, spicy corriander nose, floral aromatics...Smooth, mellow, spiced ale...finishes dry but subtly bittersweet. Somewhat reminds me of Chouffe, enjoyable, soft, spicy beer. Lowish ABV makes it a good sunny day quaffer. Much different lable than the one pictured here. I do agree this is a good one to drink well-chilled, as I did for this rating...my cellar temp drinks of it havenít been as enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh, fizzy, tart fruit aroma. This was a little one dimensional - tart, somewhat dry and peppery - without much character. Somewhat like a watery wit. Palate was wheaty-thin. Finish is quick, tangy and lightly bitter. Cork says lot no. 136287. Not sure if thatís the beer lot or the cork lot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden colour with a rapidly dissapating head. Mild aromas of spices, yeast, pepper. The flavor was quite thin. The carbonation seemed to take from the flavours. Some pepper, corriander, med citric hops with a dry finish. So so.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Poured from a 750 mL botttle. Light, slightly cloudy gold color. The head is white and thin. Aroma has citrus, flowers and a slight sourness of lemons. The taste has a sweet tangerine hint. It also reminds me of emon bread with a hint of corriander at the end. A very solid and subtle entry that is nicely balanced. Very smooth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty golden with a hint of orange, nice, long lasting head. Aroma of orange marmalade. Flavor is initially orange marmalade as well, but it finishes spicy with notes of lavender, thyme, and rosemary. Hard to describe, but not herbal on the finish, just spicy. Drying as well. Bit of harshness in the mouth, not smooth. Enjoyable overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A slightly beefed up wit, really, I donít understand why its not classed as such. Floral aroma. Cloudy pale yellow. Flavour is dry, citrus-corriander, yeasty. A subdued beer.
