3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 REVIEW #200! On tap at the brewery in Cooperstown, NY. Wasn’t expecting much from this, but it had alot of flavor. I’ll have to get myself a bottle of this stuff. Very high carbonation with a nice sour finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pale ambery hazy pour. Big citrusy and spiced aroma. Lots of lemon and oranges and peppery spices in the flavors. Somewhat acidic tartness to it. Not bad, but my least favorite of the Ommegang beers.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very pale color. Smells of citrus and a bit of spice. Very light in regards to Belgian white’s. Has hints of orange with a clove spice background. Very thin and watery which some people might like as it’s a bit more refreshing. However I like a little more punch in my beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cork popped out with force, seemed to be a lot of sediment in this one, interesting. Pours a nice pale orange with a huge frothy head that expands rapidly before quickly dissappearing. Aroma of wheat, not much else discernable. Very creamy, flavor is nice, not too sweet, lets the flavor of the wheat shine through. NIcely done!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
They aren’t kidding when they call this a witte. This beer was so damn pale it almost was actually white. Wheaty, yeasty nose, a little spiciness. Flavor was very upfront spicy clovey yeasty, pleasant palate. A quenching beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer pours a light yellow with a hint of head and a fruitish, yet wheaty aroma. Flavor is wit like and nice, with hints of fruit, and spicing and some tartiness at the end. Not a bad beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Loads of citrus in this beer. The aroma is dominated by citrus with wheat. Clloudy, dark yellow but nearly no head. The flavor has grapefruit, wheat, coriander, and spices. Actually spicy is a good description for this beer. Better than most of this style.

Jaune dorée à l’allure brouillé abritée d’une généreuse mousse blanche dense et crémeuse. Blé, notes d’agrumes, bananes jaunes, poires, un brin épicée. Belle texture presque crémeuse en bouche. Bien faite et rafraîchissante. Échantillon, mondial de la bière, Juin 2005
