3.46/5  rDev -7%

A very basic Witbier. Poured from a "Noxema blue" colored 11.2 oz bottle into a Weisen glass. Good size white head, spotty lacing and average head retention.

Aroma is malty, not much in the way of yeast or lemon. There is a little wheat bitterness.

Taste is similar. Malty, a little sweet, some balancing wheat bitterness and a little coriander.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. A good summertime thirst quencher but nothing exceptional flavor-wise.

Bottle: an embossed crystal-blue 330mL bottle with a standard macro label. The hand-grip bottle and the frankly awesome blue takes it well past the half-way mark.

Appearance: pours a slightly hazy light straw yellow with a persistent white hea that hangs about at one-finger. Fine carbonation and brilliant, thick lacing.

Aroma: the usual witbier aromas of citrus, coriander and plenty of wheat. Decent.

Taste: again a reasonable witbier - wheat with coriander, and a light citrus over the top. Not mind-blowing, but quite pleasant.

Aftertaste: a touch of wheat fug with some hop bitterness. A touch of yeast too.

Mouth feel: very nice at this price - better than pretty much any witbiers at AU$50 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles.

Overall: a pretty good witbier - not the most amazing I have ever had, but for AU$50 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles (2014), this one is well worth it. A good all-rounder.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has a hazy glowing lemon yellow body with a sticky soft peaked snow white head and a gentle carbonation gliding to the surface.

S- The big perfume aroma of apricots and some softer club soda notes finish with a papery aroma.

T- The faint peach stone note leads to a soft dry tartness in the finish. There is a dry flowery taste that lingers with a soft little carbonic acid note.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a texture that feels very flat on the tongue and is a bit odd.

O- This beer has some nice apricot and peach characters that are soft enough to be very drinkable but still has a sort of artificial quality to them. It was nice to drink a 6-pack of this but there is something that is just a little off, and I would prefer a more natural yeast ester profile.

3.29/5  rDev -11.6%

Appearance: Hazy light golden color, with a moderate, persistent white head, which retains well. The lacing is fine and scattered.

Aroma: Modest aroma of coriander, wheat, understated herbal hops, and a slight mustiness.

Taste: Opens with mild wheat malt, and a flourish of coriander. As the taste progresses, some earthiness from the wheat is apparent. Late in the taste, there is a modest herbal hop presence. The finish is graceful and mild.

Mouth feel: Light body, with soft carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant, drinkable, and somewhat understated example of the Witbier style.

Presentation Packaged in a custom cobalt blue glass bottle (!) with a pry-off crown, served in a new Belgium Brewing chalice.
