3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Loads of yeast in the nose. . .no head, very thin. Not as chewy and heavy as some others. Some hints of lemon and banana somewhere in the finish. Nothing special, but still enjoyable.

Extreamly lively pure white head that sticks around for a while. Strong banana in the nose with some doughy yeastiness. Not too overbearing on the tongue with more yeast, banana, vannila, and a bit of cinnimon/ nutmeg. Finishes nice and soft.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2003 Hazy yellow pour, thick, white and long-lasting head which laces nicely. Aroma is yeasty, malty, some banana, lemon and hint of vanilla. Flavor is mainly banana, some bubblegum sneaking in, and a bit of vanilla sliding in at the end. Medium body, lively carbonation. Doesn't seem to have the typical spices of the wit style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 Sweet aroma, vanilla, slight citrus, spice and wheat. Pale hazy hue. Clean white head which hangs around throughout the whole brew. Lots of carbonation, almost too much at first. Peppery, crisp, sour, nothing spectacular. Kinda disappointed, Unibroue is a great brewery but this is just an average brew.

Like everyone else says, the bitter citrus note is definately there. Decent head retention, decent lacing, but I prefer the look of a darker beer. Good sharp taste with a very clean finish. A top beer in my books!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow colour. Very cloudy. Big, fluffy head. Light spicy, citrus-aroma. Fizzy citrus-flavour. Thin and watery. A disappointment.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium gold color, small head. Apples and vanilla aroma. Malty and very sweet. Some spiciness, not very hoppy. More reminiscent of a cider than a beer. Kind of applish and citrusy. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly spicy. Tasty, but not very beer-like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2003 A paler version of Hoegaarden. Great white head like a pillow. Smooth and clean for a White. Even the yeast was mild. Can drink this for a while.
