3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat special witbier, at least bolder than the Hoegaarden standard, with fresh orange peel used and dominating the nose, very refreshing, fluffy and soft mouthfeel, wheat sourishness, lots of citrus again but not over the top, coriander as usual, very thirst-quenching. Has more body than I’m used to from the style. Very good example, firm and characterful.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great looking brew with a 2 finger head of foam sitting on a slightly hazy golden liquid.
Spicy as heck with big coriander, cloves, wheat and orange.
The taste is a tad milder than the smell. More of a balance between the spices and the orange fruit. Still, it’s testing my palate.
Nice mouth feel for the style.
This bursts with flavour but it isn’t something that I’d seek out again.

Pours a moderate. hazy dull yellowish. A one finger soapy head. Lots of lemon on the nose. Hundreds of tiny fast bubbles. Medium mouthfeel. Light creaminess. A little prickly from the carbonation. Nice sweetness looming on the swallow. Dry finish. Very refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2oz bottle, from Party Source. On close out, from $6 to $2. Shared with b3shine. Cap says Lot 91. Good orange and spice in the nose. Smooth, kind of soft, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate tart, sweet, kind of tangy taste. Solid belgian yeast character. Baked apple, light spice. Mildly hazy orange color. Thin off-white head, doesn’t leave lace. Solid belgian wheat beer, much better than expected. Get a lot of the wheat and (organic) orange. Better than expected, overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good for the style; a slightly hazy golden orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells semi-sweet with notes of Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a fairly dry, pleasant mouthfeel. Maybe a hint of apple too. Enjoyable.

Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown squat bottle poured into a glass. Pours light amber with off-white head. Tangy aroma, medium body, well carbonated, and thick small bubble lacing. Taste is tangy, coriander, apples, over ripe oranges, and spicy. Rich flavor, but just ok.
