3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Hazy yellow/orange body with a collapsing white head. Aroma is light spicy and herbs, fine fruitiness like banana and oranges with a hint of caramel. Flavor is like expected from aroma and really balanced. It’s not the most typical Wit beer I have tasted, but it’s very quaffable and has a positive originality. Can’t really put my finger on it, but I really enjoyed this as a surprise to the lager/pilsner beers from the same brewery.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika.
Hazy yellow body with a small wite head. Lightly spiced aroma with some wheat and yeast notes, not bad but could have been a bit stronger. The taste is what I’d call careful, all the stuff in a wit is there, though very thin. I had the beer in a plastic glass so it could probably be served better. Best part of the beer is the finish, a nice bitterness combined with coriander.
A bit boring for a wit really

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl. A hazy, golden beer topped by a dense, small, off-white head. Caramel, butterscotch, banana and some citrusy notes in the aroma. Medium body, with a bit too much carbonation, even for the style. The flavor has banana dominating, with caramel, citrus and bitterness. Dry, bitter finish with caramel. Certainly not a wit, but as a hefeweizen it’s decent. Nothing more though. 111123

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours hazy golden wit a huge snow white head. Aroma of coriander and wheat. Taste is too sweet to be memorable, with an aftertaste of honey. Watery mouthfeel. More like an anonymous and weak soda in my book.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Consumed this one on August 7, 2011 after picking it up at the Vinmonopol, Bergen, Valkendorfsgaten. What a disappointment, especially since it ended as a drain pour. It was devoid of any head and – aside from a hint of coriander and lemon – the nose was rather weak. The taste was acidic – almost like drinking lemon juice and left me wondering whether or not it was contaminated.
