Bottle: Poured a light hazy yellow ale with a medium head and very little retention. Aroma is bit weak with some wheat and some orange being noticeable. Taste is also a bit weak with some wheat again and medium sweetness. Lack some character to make it truly special.

Banana clove and wheat figure prominently in the aroma. Hazy, pale straw with large white head that recedes to decent cover. Very sweet banana flavour dominates the wheat flavour with a pleasant, lasting, spicy finish. Smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting aroma of fruits, banana and lemon, spices and wheat. Typical witbier appearance : hazy yellow color and thin white head. It’s very mellow with flavors of banana, lemon and wheat. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, the mouthfeel is special, very mellow and confortable, I feel my tastebuds are resting on a comfy bed of wheat and fruit. It’s a classic, interesting wit but without the special palate it’s an ordinary beer in the midst of a ton of other ordinary witbier I’ve tasted.
