3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head and a yeasty aroma with hints of banana. The flavor is soft, like ripe fruits (peach, banana and grapes) and yeast. Nice creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish. Very nice

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky body of dull copper with a compact but lasting head. Lemon sweet nose, pretty full taste, smooth and mildly sweet with some coriander drying the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an effervescent deep golden with a large, frothy, full-lacing white head. Lightly sweet biscuity malty nose has some lemon citrus and honey character with a touch of grassy hops. Body starts fairly full and well-carbonated with a mild sweetness and crisp, tart, lemon and orange citrus balance before a drier, earthy finish with some corainder spice. A pretty nice witbier.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (Best by 3/2005) Yea, it was pretty old, but always worth a rating when you’ve never consumed it before. A golden, slightly hazy pour with a sticky white head. Oxidized suggetions in the nose, with a bisquity malt character. There’s also some honeyish sweetness and milf herbal notes. The flavor is also honeyish upfront, along with musty, oxidized cracker flavors. There’s also a hint of herbal notes in there somewhere. This bottle was really oxidized, so I’ll have to revisit this stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught, Brewery tap. A generous ivory, creamy white head covers the exemplary deep cloudy golden shade. Perfumey, wildly herbal, very spicy nose bursting with cilantro, rosewater and… oregano? A weird and in your face spice blend that gives it a feel like it would match Indian good gloriously. In itself, it’s also satisfying thanks to an excellent, medium-thick, refreshing wheaty, cotton-candy reminiscent, sweet and firm body. Crunchy morning beer. Yummy.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle and served in my "whole garden" tumbler. Pours a hazed golden hue with a fading fizzy head and no lace. The aroma has notes of wheat bread, honey, coriander, clove, and an overall yeasty nose. The taste does show some fruity and spicy character over the base wheat and pale malts but I found this Witbier lacking a sharpness and refreshment I desire from the style. I found hints of orange peel towards the finish. A very average beer which has merits but just does not meet expectations.

Draught at the brewpub. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Powerfull but not great aroma. Light bitter flavor, not as yeasty as other witts. Watery palate.

Draught at the brewpub.
Cloudy orange coloured (too dark for this style), big white head, yeasty fruity nose. The aroma is also very yeasty and fruity (orange, lemon, grapefruit) with pleasant spicy notes. Slight acidic finish.
