Brussels, 07. This beer poured a nice cloudy light yellow hue with nice frothy head. The aroma was nice and fruity. Much too tart overall for my liking, but definitely refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2007 Bottle. The pour starts off a clear gold then turns cloudy as you pour in the sediment. The head is a pale white that lasts for some time. The aroma is very bread-y with notes of banana and pineapple. There are some slight notes of cloves and various spices. The mouthfeel is pleasant in the amount of carbonation as well as the fruit juice-like consistency. It’s acidity is similar to pineapple juice or grapefruit juice. It has a nice clean finish. This is quite a refreshing beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma was typical yeast that defines a Wit, didn’t really pick anything else up. Flavor was classic Wit, yeast, orange, bread dough. The palate / mouthfeel was what was different to me, the flavor disappeared with an suddeness that was surprising, there was flavor, then it was gone, no lingering aftertaste, strange. This changed as the beer warmed, as aftertaste slowly emerged. Good beer, still partial to Southhampton Double White though.

Not a very strong aroma, I expected this, but there really aren’t any identifying scents. Standard Witbier appearance, nothing that stands out. No head, no lacing. More bitter than other witbiers I’ve had. Nice. Not that crisp, but refrshing enough, a little bit heavy. Okay mouthfeel, nothing to say really. I would get other beers over this in the style.

Bottle. Nice big head with good duration. Color is hazy golden. Lots of yeast in the bottom. Second pour actually didnt look very appetizing. Murky brown. Aroma is sweat malt. Taste is nice and malty with good freshness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Bottle. Pours a near perfect body - dark, cloudy orange, with nice rich, frothy head. The aroma contains some orange, strong notes of a spice, and fruity cirtus malts. Taste is malty, not as great as i expected, but good. ::::::RETRY:::: I enjoyed this beer more the second time around. Aroma is very interesting - sweet cream, wheat, and fresh citrus. Taste is similar notes; overall better than your standard wit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a murky caramel straw colored body with a creamy white head and very nice lacing. The aroma is nicely balanced coriander, wheat, orange peel, and has that house Abt kind of yeast. The flavor is quite yeasty with a house characteristic, wheat, and a light orange juice and coriander. The palate is mouthwatering, earthy, and quite dry. Moderately carbonated up front, but that goes away rather quickly.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very light straw color with a nice creamy head. The nose is yeasty,with a slight hint of scotch, I didn’t get any citrus which was surprising. The flavor is where this one shines above most others. Very complex with citrus, spice, bread dough and a nice maltiness that stays with you. The palate is beautiful as more flavors come to you as the you linger over the beer. Actually a little more substantial than most.
