4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow now this is something that I can really get into. The cork flew off as soon as I twisted the cage off to reviel a wondeful spicy and sour aroma that had me thinking this beast a geuze.. Pours very clear and reveals a nice lemon/lactic aroma. The taste is sour and vanilla (very faint) and brings in the usual wheat taste. Truly a wonderful summer beer!!!

Shared 750ml bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow. Good white head that lasted awhile. This was too sour for me. Biting into a lemon type fruit sourness.

Very cloudy pale yellow color, big lasting head. Spicy, sour very citrussy nose. Yeasty notes also. Spicy and very citrussy flavor, almost like fresh lemon juice. But very good. Refreshing lingering citrus palate.

2 years in the bottle. Yellow-Gold, Medium high carbonation can cause a large fizzy head unless poured carefully. Recedes quickly. Very mild, not going far in any one direction. Clean, subtle wheat character, not overly spicy with orange or coriander. Some citric tartness. Refreshing.

Very pale yellow color with a light head. The aroma was sweet and yeasty. It was wheaty and dry with a slight hoppy finish. Subtle bitter lingering aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Cork Dated 01-2002. This brew had an invigorating head of small to large white bubbles and little lacing. Its body is a cloudy weak watered down pee color that has carbonation rising up the side of the glass. It tastes fizzy and has no initial or after bite. It was a drinkable beer to start the evening off with but not much more. Hotstuff got the burps after just a half a glass.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy glowing pale yellow, perfect head and great lacing. This had a much more tart and lemony flavor than the Saxo - because of the wheat, i guess. I enjoyed this right down to the earthy dry finish.

Bottle. Hazy straw color with a thin but lasting white head. Sweet/sour aroma with lots of lemony citrus and coriander. Very earthy. The burps even taste like dirt. Orange zest and light malt flavors grow in the earth and flourish as this one warms. Seems to sweeten as it warms also. Maybe I'm just over sensitive to sweet tonight after the "Cochconne". Maybe the yeast was a bit to unsettled to give this one the yeasty/earthy overtones. Not as refreshing as I like my wits (But I'm at wits end).
