2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 L bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Straw-yellow with a milky shade. Thin, fully diminishing white head. Sweet-scented. Wheaty, with lemonade and some soapy herbal notes. Taste is mellow and indinstinct fruity, fairly sweet with notes of coriander. No hops involved. Light in the mouth. Short, sappy fruit ending. Boring all over.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Stylish 750 ml bottle, shared with Tom at Øl & Mat-festivalen, Oslo. ABV 5.1%. Cloudy golden colour, moderate white head. Typical witbier aroma and flavour, notes of coriander and orange peel, hardly any noticeable hops. A hint of diacetyl is not what I want in a witbier. Drinkable, but lacks "bite". Boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75l bottle. Pours a hazy orange yellowish body with a quickly fading little off-white head. Aroma is hay, citrus-sour, some coriander, a little pepper and some yeast. Has a fizzing little body with a nice and slightly oily mouthfeeling. Mild flavors of hay, citrus, little banana also in there and some mild coriander. Has a really nice finish - spicy and sweet - quite hard to describe but I really like it. It’s almost like saaz mixed with vanilla. Then it fades in a light watery aftertaste. Not a bad wit at all. Starting to like these Theresianer brews!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Deep hazy straw yellow, somewhat dirty color. Short lived bubbly white head. Taste is wheat, sweet malts, hints of bubblegum and banana. Tiny bits of coriander towards the end. Rather plain. An OK wit, but a bit sweet and not quite flavorful enough.

Niente di straordinario, una blanche con scarsa speziatura, giusto una birra di frumento leggera, venduta in confezione di lusso (75cl)
