3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Time and time again the designation of Belgian Witte has bitten me on the arse. I expect something cloudy, lemon yellow and fluffy and get something golden, full of sediment, lacking in head and as out of place as the proverbial giraffe trying to get into a polar bears only golf club. A satisfying pfffst! and a pour reveal I am not disappointed at this beer fits all of the above criteria. It carries on that lovely aromatic lemon and coriander theme. Sharpish, but full of charm. It is a cheeky niece-like beer. Perfumy and floral with hibiscus and daphne. A mouthful reveals soft, fluffy sweetness. Unchallenging and quenching with flowers, lemon peel and soft sherbet. This is a beer for after lunch or as a sneaky afternoon indulgence. Not a serious connoisseur’s "I’m getting passionfruit, carpet cleaner and Tibetan monk’s cassock" beer. It is one I would have difficulty in stopping drinking and that’s all you can ask.

Tap @ Cafe Brussels, though I’ve had it several times before. Hazy gold with a frothy white head. Lots of coriander and yeast. Somewhat unbalanced but not bad.

Korianderes kuraszaós, nem annyira jön be, kicsit citromaromás, izesített söörkre jellemzően. Pluszba egy kis zöld kocka WC illatosító is bekúszik a nyelvünk alá.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: December 31, 2015... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen...OCCASION: enjoying a slow creep towards 2016 with my loved ones... APPEARANCE: sallow, dusty off-yellow body that reveals lonely bubbles upwards; the off-white head is frothy and soapy, retaining well enough but giving way to satellites of lacing before resting as a coaster of reasonable quarter-finger froth... AROMA: banana front and center, with faint pepper and light orange citrus... suggests an easy, agreeable drink, with bubblegum and light barnyard yeastiness accompanying the experience... PALATE: light, soft-spoken sips that smoothly find their way to a bit more vibrancy at the throat’s end... mouth-rinsing depth with an apologetic draw... thin and lacking an aftertaste of note--though one cannot expect much of this, given its style...drinkable, yes... TASTE: the orange peel moves among the wheat and banana to evoke creamsicle, with enough lemon grass and other citrus leaving an acidic finish...little other spice or nuance tov speak of, rendering this a straight-forward refresher... OVERALL: on an 80-degree day, I might have been less discerning, but in late December, this beer doesn’t hold enough profile to be considered as an outstanding example of its genre... yet it doesn’t challenge the palate or disparage its intentions either...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml can. Cloudy yellow body with a medium sized white head. Quite mild aroma with wheat, some citric fruit, mild spices and yeast. Flavor is rather light as well, some pale malt and wheat with hint of slightly sour citric fruit (almost like lemon but not quite there), spices and a faint hint of honey. Low, almost no bitterness. Medium to thin body and short in aftertaste. Decent thirst quencher but not really that interesting, almost any other Wit would do the same job.
