3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clouded straw gold with a white head. Nose is like immature grass that has been cut. Not green grass, like a yellow grass that is still maturing. Flavor is mild with character. Subdued wheat flavors with a mild yeast. Feel is thick on the mouth as there seems to be a residue almost that clings to your mouth. A decent one, but nothing to run to the store to get. Nice to drink, but no Oscar winner.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 ounce in pint glass. Pale cloudy yellow-orange with dense white head and lace. Mild coriander orange aroma. Very orangy fruity flavor, slightly overripe, with mild spice finish. Medium light body, medium carbonation. Slightly watery, but not overly. Very refreshing. Overall, enjoyable. Wouldn’t mind having again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale, hazy straw color with a white head. Aroma of lemon and wheat, with quite a hit of bubblegum. Flavor of lemon and coriander, dry finish. Flavor thins out significantly in the dry finish. For some reason, I couldn’t get the thought of dirty dishwater out of my head as I was drinking this. Drinkable, but nowhere near my top choice in Witbiers.
11.2 ounce bottle ’Blanche De Bruxelles’.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blanche De Bruxelles. Pours very light hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is wheat with a hint of citrus. Flavor is tart with slight citrus corriander and yeast. Lighter flavors than most witbier, but man does it go down easy. I enjoyed this very much and it is a great beer. Proof that beer does not have to be 9%+ alcohol or insanely hopped to be good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has some certain potential, but overall it just doesn’t pack the punch that a good Wit beer should have. A bit hazy, the coriander feels a bit tacked on. malts is decent.
worthy of a try

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blanche De Bruxelles: The aroma hints at coriander and orange but they are light. There is wheat and yeast however. The appearance is slightly hazy gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with more citrus and coriander. The palate is thin. Overall it’s very drinkable but nothing out of the ordinary.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Once again I’m not understanding low ratings for this style. Pours cloudy yellow with a good thick white head. The aroma is sweeter than normal for th style with lots of smooth orange, sweet wheat malt and a faint hint of coriander. Medium body that is very soft on the palate with light frothy carbonation. The taste is like the aroma, still much sweeter than normal for the style with some orange juice characteristics. the finish has a bit of coriander, pepper, some honeydew and light sourness. A quality wit beer.
