75cl bottle, 1.70€, 4.5°. Appears quite dark for the style, tend to classic golden color. Slightly hazed ("natural troubling agent"?), white head. Aroma has strange spicey to medicinal notes, somewhat artificial. Taste is flat. Not good, not a witbier.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 There are interesting champagne flavours in this otherwise bland, lifeless and watery pale beer. Probably best drunk well chilled on a hot day. [2.8]
I’m now drinking it well chilled a couple of days later, and, indeed, it is a pleasant, fruity, fragrant and refreshing beer. Nice. [3.2]

I had it over 2 years past it’s due date. The cork flew off violently by just uncaging it. It was supremely carbonated and effervescent, a clear gold. It tasted like champagne mixed with vanilla and coriander spiced apples. Interesting.
