2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blond ale, froathy foam, big bubbles (yes, very far from Champagne perlage). Nice classic aroma for a wheat ale, ’spicy’. Classic taste, but light, more like a lager; rather poor taste and poor palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at BCTC 2010. Pours a murky yellow with a modest, fading white head. Plenty of wheat in the aroma, along with tart citrus and coriander. Flavor is quite sweet, with more lemon and spice notes. Light to medium in body with high carbonation. Finishes sweet and lightly crisp. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours a hazy, yellow-golden body under a dense, creamy, white head. There’s a touch of tobacco on the nose, some pine, citrus, a little banana and spices. Quite complex. Banana and citrusy, along with coriander and other spices in the mouth, with a fine bitterness, showing all of itselves in the finish. Dry, medium-bodied, smooth and well-carbonated. A really pleasant witbier. (081229)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The beer pours a surprisingly translucent golden straw color with a white head.
S: Certainly starts off with a nice witbier smell. Lots of coriander notes, banana, and orange peel. There’s some nice bready, wheat notes and a bit of sugar. Unfortunately, I pick up a cardboard aroma...
T: The cardboard translates to the flavor, too. Sweet bread, banana, spicy coriander, earthy and floral hops, and slightly bitter orange peel. Pretty meh, I must say.
M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation.
D: I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but this wasn’t a terribly good witbier (or beer in general).

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m really not enthused with this one. I find it too thin and spritzy, with not nearly enough spice, malt, or hop character.
