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 I’ve 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.
