3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: This mythical libation pours a cloudy orange-ish color with a thin ring of white foam.
S: What? No cardboard? A miracle, I say. Sweet oranges and a fair amount of spices (coriander, mostly) on the nose with a decent wheat and bread aroma. A bit of yeast is there as well.
T: Surprisingly flavor for an almost 9 year old witbier. There are a lot of fruity notes to this beer which was strange, but enjoyable. Orange and slightly bitter orange peel with some coriander complimenting a (somehow) intact sweet wheat and malt base.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: I was really expecting this to be total crap. As a witbier, it’s very middle of the road. But looking at this beer for "what it has become" in terms of the VE series, it’s actually pretty good. This makes the beer sort of difficult to score...
