2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy light straw color. White head - small. Little to no lacing left behind.
Citrusy. Little wheat aroma. Otherwise pretty muted. There is something there that is a bit hard to place, but unpleasant.
Slight clove. Phenols. Wheaty. But the unpleasant aroma makes it appearance in the taste, and is not any better on the tongue.
Smooth, but thin. A little sourness in the aftertaste.
Not bad. But could be way better. I guess Huyghe saves the good brewing for their own beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from M&S at St Pancras. Hazy pale gold, thick white head. A little too soapy on the aroma, over a lemon and spicy nose. Soap takes it away from being a decent wit cos the rest is very good. Touch of mango and passion fruit on the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml from M&S Summertown, Oxon. Clouded pale yellow with white head. Certainly a pretty authentic Belgian Wit, spicy with banana, estery flavours, it’s like many of this type, initially flavoursome but becomes overbearing in the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2011 Bottled. A hazy straw to yellow coloured beer with a little white head. A spicy, coriander fuelled aroma with perfumed notes and lemon. Spicy, wheaty and yeasty in the mouth with orangey notes. Refreshing floralness. Not the biggest body but it’s not bad. Score 3.1
Subsequent rating scored 3.5. Average becomes 3.3

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’ll give Marks and Spencer some points for picking a proper Belgian brewer rather than an obscure name of a vat somewhere off the shores of Belgium to make their stuff..... Pours foggy yellow with plenty of head. Aroma is antiseptic, a mix of lemon and vanilla. Taste is a hip infusion of orange and coriander, well refined, but feels unnatural. Not bad per se, but certainly has an un-wheat beer feel to it; too processed perhaps and I’m not a fan of that.
