3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle, thank you very much, Allen! Hazy pale yellow with a mid-sized white head. Aroma of cirtsu fruit, hops and a touch of spice. Light to medium-bodied, malty background with flavours of orange zest and citrus fruit. Slightly hoppy. Hints of spices and herbs, especially coriander and clove. A pleasant lemony sourness is detectable in the background. Very refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2009 2009-10-24, draught, "Nuit de la Fraîcheur" at the brewery, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Muddy deep blond color. Quite surprisingly there is a light hop aroma. Medium body structure, less strong than its sisters tonight; light malt and wheat flavor, dry finish, a bit spicy. Pleasant.

Cloudy light blond color. Light and fresh aroma. Medium-light body, light wheat flavor, light spices; the final is a bit boring, just the bitterness and nothing else. Simple but refreshing, missing some fruitness.

Cloudy blond color, gushing bottle, high carbonation, big head. Strange aroma, herbs (similar to rosemary and heather) and chemicals (like a room in a hospital). Dry mouthfeel, with chemicals again, maybe bitter oranges, and too much bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a murky golden beer with a decent head. The nose is mainly of coriander, lemon, orange peel and hops. Acidic. Very dry. Not sweet at all. Poor lacework. Nicely spicy. Good bitterness. Some sage sneaking in. Dry spicy finish. A very good beer. Extremely refreshing and pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy golden with white head.
Aroma is of citrus and agrumes, some orange peel.
Taste is hoppy, fruity (orange, lemon) and lightly spicy (coriander/black pepper) aftertaste.
Ligh, refreshing, and something really new and interesting in a blanche.
I am really impressed by the 3 Dames brewery. Some of their beers seem to have this signature spice and also an excelent stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw colour, nice fluffy but tight head. Lemony, yeasty, spicy nose, fruity, pretty intense palate, with more citrus, the mandatory bubble-gum edge, coriander and yeast. Nice dryish, noticeably bitter finish, with little sweetness lingering. Brave, dryish, very drinkable take on the style, led by a firm belief that a blanche can be more than just a refreshment. Definitely one of the best blanches Switzerland has to offer, along with BFM’s and Bière de Neuch’s.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white fluffy/creamy head. Aroma is spices, a lot of citrusfruits and some mild acidicness too. Flavour is very spicy (coriander), fruity and also some yeastyness. Very refreshing.

Bottled (BB 10/2008)
Pale hazy yellow color, big cloudy head. Hops and ginger in the nose. Crisp witbier. Very spicey: ginger and coriander with some honey. Quite Christmasy! Spicey aftertaste.
