2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old notes 11/2/09 Draught at Brewery, Canberra
Hazy looking straw coloured beer. Holds a small white cap.
Spice evident on the aroma, that earthy/woody, slightly sweetish coriander seed character, with a whiff of citrus. Faint hint of husky cereal in the background.
Reasonable carbonation, somewhat light and fluffy on the palate, drying towards the finish.
More spice on the body, seems slightly dominant, lingering on the finish. Get a bit of milled grain character and citrus as it warms. Low bitterness.
Lacking the complexity and balance of a good example, still a passable beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Very nice heffe. Aromas of bubblegum and banana. Taste is sweet, with a hint of sourness. Palate is oily, and thin-to-medium bodied. Pale, cloudy, with a frothy head.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Didn’t think much of this, even though I don’t like Wit’s, so I really wasn’t a fan. the wheat, coriander combination turned me off having my half pint at the midway point. Spices in the aftertaste.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Tap. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a lingering head. Aroma of sulphur. Pretty standard wit flavour, but fairly subdued. Light bodied, lively carbonation and a short finish. Was asked if I’d ever had a wit before when I complained about the sulphur.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
...on the tap at the place. Didn’t look impressive at first, untill I had a whiff. Nice balanced nose of citrus, dusty wheat, with a small hint of yeast and ginger. The lacing was great, body a little thin, but hey it is a Wit, not a blonde. Flavors of corriander and slight spice to liven it up, finishes dry, clan, and citrus. Nice beer, good effort.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Average white head over a hazy pale yellow body. Floral-citrus aroma and nice citrus-coriander taste. Probably lacks the tartness of some of the better witbiers, but a refreshing and tasty beer nevertheless.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tried on tap at the Wig and Pen Canberra. Pale body with short head. Dull looking. Witbier flavours are there but don’t stand out too much.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Fairly disappointing. Quite muddy and indistinct. Initial aroma is full of empty promises, a lot more than is eventually delivered to the tastebuds.
