3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle drunk on a train. Straight after popping you can smell the familiar orange / coriander Huyghe aroma. Not as strong as Delirium at 4.5% but still packed with a fair amount of taste. The orange peel here is kind of tangy and really lingers on the tongue but still, compared to the beer M&S used to put out this is impressive.

Mid to light body. Dry, crisp and slick palate. Mouth Feel is fair light malty base with strong wheatyness and tartness which balanced the sweetness well. Very slick. Good spice, coriander and light orange peels abound. Yeasty , earthy but not so estery. Light lemon to round. Good!... Hoppiness is light floral, spices, light lemon and thin grass in nose, and stronger with earth in taste; Bitterness is low for an abrupt, very low astringent wheaty spicy finish; Quite dry after taste. Spicy and low bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is an on-standard Belgian White with strong wheaty tartness, good banana aroma, a big dose of coriander and spice to taste. Very solid and almost outstanding, a very easy and enjoyable Wit indeed. Recommended!
