2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Smells of meat to me. Very slightly citric and VERY wheaty. The flavour is also wheaty, with all the grains very pronounced. The palate is quite full and impressive.
A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
No idea where this one popped up from and part of me wishes it had stayed wherever it was. A fruity, cardboardy white bier. Very pale yellow. Shite. Drain pour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Clear golden, rocky head. Citric aroma heavy on coriander. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Fruity and rather intense in flavour for such a light beer - coriander, yeast and lemon peels. This and the sweetness reduces the refreshing qualities, making it more of a low sipper, or something in between the two. No bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is very big coriander, zest, a lot of other citrusfruits, wheat and some more spices involved. Flavour is coriander, wheat, slight yeast and some grass. A very pleasant thing, that at the same time is very refreshing and full of stuff. One of the better Witbiers I have had.

Appearance: plae, amlost opaque icy lemon yellow. Frothy, white head.
Flavour: sourish with a corny sweetness. Nice, light sweet malt aftertaste. Drinkable but very tame.
Palate: wuite ok. Nothing special here. Simple, thin fizzy wit body.
An ok summer beer really. Quite drinkable. I’m not sure whether I like the almost fudgy sweetness though.
