4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, bought @ SuperBrugsen, Bramdrupdam. Pours a great hazy yellow golden. An equally pretty and nice frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma has lots of yeast and camomille - a generally wonderful floral touch. Great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is powerfully spicy with lots of wheaty sweetness. Coriander and camomille is absolutely perfectly balanced with the vinious edge and general sweetness. Fabolously fresh Christmas brew - this should certainly be repeated in 2008.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s hazy golden with a huge, white, lasting and creamy head. The aroma has sweetness and notes of coriander, oranges, apple and basement. The flavour has sweetness, notes of fruit, coriander, oranges, apple and a touch of damp basement. I find it too sweet, the alcohol is a bit bothering and IMO it’s too heavy as a wit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very good, just off-white head, fine, over clear golden beer. Bit of vomit, coriander, sweet malts, citrus, herbs, flowery. Delicate despite the first epitheton. Soap, coriander, sweet citrus, ends a bit flat. Sweetness on the palated, like sugar-preserved citrus slices. Doable, if certainly not great. For a wit, OK.
