3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is pretty good but a little light and almost too soft, making it a bit tiresome by the end. It is cloudy light gold with a huge white head that is dense and mashmallowy, decreasing to a smaller lasting head that leaves some weak, foamy lacing. The aroma is grain, esp. wheat, hints of straw, yeast, sweet cider. The taste is definitely a witbier. It is sweet at first transitioning to a drier finish. It has definite banana quality, hints pf spices, then a grain finish and lingering aftertaste, a very soft, creamy body.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cL bottle as Blanche De Bruxelles. Aroma is nearly perfumey lemon. Very pale gold color with a good white head. Near medium in body with creamy/fizzy carbonation. Mild flavors of lemon, coriander and wheat. Maybe it could be orange oil. The finish is mild, not quite dry, and lightly citrus and wheat. Leaves a slight tingle. Very pleasant.
