2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Quite nice (almost white) colour, white head. Spicy aroma, little sweet. Where did the flavour go to? This tastes like water. I think vittel is cheaper.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Sampled in 2004.] Had some expectations to this one, but they fell all down, when I recogized some witnotes. But maybe not that bad as I mention it. Just in the middle of nowhere!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Disappointing Belgian blond, short on character. At room temperature, it poured a cloudy pale lemon with a loose 1cm head. Indifferent head retention, no lace. Strong aroma of cloves, cinammon and burnt sugar with grass and faint bubblegum. Bit of soda-like spritz momentarily on the tongue with each mouthful but it faded quickly to a dull, undercarbonated brew. Thin in the body. Low on flavour. Predominant characteristics are carbon dioxide, watery lemon, wheat and pepper. As others observe, this is very Wit-like. (33cl bottle, IBS Perth, no visible bb date)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from local Sake Marche. Lots of yeast in the aroma. also slightly lemony. Cloudy dull green-tinged yellow with a big puffy head and very thick lacing. Sharp yeasty and sourish initial; mid palate goes tangy with citrus; finish is a little bitter. Medium body. A bit too heavy on the yeast -- and not terribly pleasant. Like a bitter fizzy fruit soda.
