3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the RBG Low Countries 2005 tasting session
Clear, blond body. White, frothy head. Nose of dough and flowers. Lightly acidic, moderately bitter initial flavour. Lightly acidic, heavily bitter, long finish. Lively carbonation. Doesnít looks like a white beer, but does taste so. The only weird thing was the quite clear amount of alcohol in the finish, which makes it fully bodied, although itís only 6% ABV. I hardly can believe itís only 6%.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A full bodied, and quite sweet witbier. Quite yeasty initially but softens as you work your way through it. Its is also a little fizzy, but this softens also. Nice coriander and lemon characters, with a yeasty bitterness. Some alcohol shows in the end. I thought this worked quite well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unclear orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is of yeast and spices, but also with notes of banana. The flavor is way too sweet with notes of caramel and wheat.
