3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 33cl. It looks nice, with a milky-white, yellow pour with a medium-sized white head. Quite citrusy nose with a little touch of spices and pale malt. A weak sour touch too. Nice, citrusy flavor with a little spicyness and malts. The spices is quite subdued in both aroma and flavor, but it shows more of itselves after a while. Quite thin body, but not too thin, rather pleasant to drink. The finish has a pleasant bitterness in addition to the initial flavors. A nice, quaffable beer, well suited for thirst-quenching in the summer. (080211)

12 oz. bottle poured into tumbler- poured slightly cloudy thin yellow, huge white head slowly whisped away, aroma of yeast, malt, and various light citrus. Hits the mouth with a thin-medium body, can detect a bit of raw yeast, some citrus, finish is clean but very short.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle.The pour is a bit more uniform than most witbiers, as in even after the sediment is added there isn’t any difference of appearance. The aroma starts oof in the glass as a mild grapefruit or kiwi and turns within a few gulps into a balsamic and olive oil tone and by end of pint a honey lavendar. Flavor is not as intense as the nose which is a let down- reminds me of lemon or orange water. As with the flaver the body was very thin and the finish was short.

I didn’t really like this beer, but I haven’t really tasted anything quite like it before. Very floral, with a strong taste of lavender. A nice, light beer, but I couldn’t drink very much of this... On tap at the Flying Saucer.

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.
