3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle. Pours a clear golden with an aggressive but dissipating quickly, white head. Nose : Fresh fruity : cherry, raspberry and little banana. Little clove. Small notes of alcohol. Caramel malts. Sip : almost mouthful body with good carbonation. Lightly sweet caramel malts change quickly into sour clove dryness. Overall I don’t appreciate champagne bubbles in my beer, unfortunately some of my best beers are like that : ex. Saison Dupont.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of peaches, orange and spicy hints of coriander. Fruity, slightly spicy taste with apricots, citrus and a spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, fairly sweet. Well balanced and quite tasty.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden blonde colour, almost as cloudy as a witbier.
At first the taste hints of honey but without its sweetness (think a lighter version of Barbãr) but sharper than most beers of this type. Definitely makes one think of coriander.
The aftertaste is less bitter and has a subtle touch of malt in there.
Overall a nice, enjoyable brew though nothing special. And surprisingly enough I’d almost recommend this one as a thirst quencher, in spite of the relatively high ABV (7.5%) as it lacks a bit of body for me.

Too light to say on the aroma. Super gold color with white head. Plain blonde, forgetable.
