3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with dissipating bubbly white head laces lightly. Aroma of slightly sour Belgian yeast and wheat. Taste follows, slight lemon citrus notes and a sweet finish. Definitely one of the best Belgian witbiers Iíve ever had if that is really what it is.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light yellow, hazy. Wheat, spices on nose. Just a hint of funk, citrus. Overall quite weak nose. Body is light, refreshing. Dry and a bit sour, with lots of citrus, some yeast, hay. Pleasant, even though the flavour profile (hayish citrus) feels a bit odd. Somehow radler comes to mind- I guess this would also work well on hot summer days.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20

Aroma: lemon, dried orange peel, roast pear and roasted candy sugar.
Flavor: lemon, brief appearance of pear and tropical fruit that swiftly turns to green apple, quinine/sparkling tonic water. The lemon, quinine, green apple dominates.
Comment: refreshing quaffer, great summer drink that has some complexity.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pale gold with a foamy white head. Quite clear. Looks rather fizzy, but some bubbles hang on for a bit. Things go downhill from here. It smells of lemons, floral hops, old stewed vegetables, fruit rot and cough syrup. The lemon note is nice and easily the strongest or my score would be lower. Unfortunately, the rest of the aroma is just off. The taste combines sickly sweetness with lemons and more oddball cough syrup. It reminds me of orange juice concentrate thatís gone bad. Itís not undrinkable, though Iíd say thatís more a product of the low abv. The thought of this beer at twice the strength fills me dread. The mouthfeel is sudsy and oddly gummy, a bit like a sorghum beer. Despite my comments, the beer really isnít horrible. Itís just a rather bad version of what it advertises. It tastes like a combination of two very simple, overly sweet versions of each style. There are some nice notes somewhere in this beer, and thereís an occasional hint of lambic complexity, but the good stuff is utterly lost amongst the muck. Oddly, I kinda liked Timmermanís pumpkin lambic, but this one is a struggle.
