3.19/5  rDev -7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3

Pours a pale yellowish color with a fine-grained pure white foam in the Ommegang chalice. Can't fault the creamy mouthfeel. The aroma seems lacking.

The first sip makes me think of celery tonic. So does the tenth sip. Light and fluffy with an unusual aromatic flavor. Not so much spiced as infused with something. There is a touch of lemon as well as cucumber. Quite dry but without any hint of yeasty flavors. Overall the taste is rather faint.

I guess this one's a matter of personal taste. It seems well made but to me it has a peculiar flavor that doesn't compare to the multitude of "regular" Witbiers. From the 750 corked bottle purchased for ten bucks at Ibis Food Mart in San Diego.

On tap and served in a branded glass at a small cafe in Lille, France.

Appearance: Cloudy hazy glowing white straw yellow beer. Huge head and lots of lacing.

Smell: Practically no smell at all other than a hint of lemon.

Taste: Grainy, watery, with lemon rind - lemon citrus sticks out most of all, but weak - balanced by some of the malt but the malt is weak as well. There is no finish to this beer - it just stops.

Mouthfeel: Watery, with OK carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: Not a good beer. Weak, insipid, poorly done. Nice looking, but substandard in all other aspects.

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus zest, spices, and herbs. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy to drink.

Found this at the local beer cave picked it up for giggles. All in all I say its pretty good I can't say great because I am not a huge fan of fruity beers. Which leads to flavor lots of citrus in the taste and smell mildly like lemon with orange on the back. Poured really well a little bit of grain in the texture overall a pretty good beer just will not be more then an every once in awhile drink for me.

Lazy Saturday afternoon, time for a witbier. So, on to it:

Cloudy white grape color, soapy inch thick head, webbed lacing around the glass. The nose is fruity, in a tart, lemony way. Soft, and on the lively side.

It's refreshing, but the flavor is rather one dimensional. Again, it has a sweet lemon flavor, and there's a touch of graininess. The label says that it is brewed with spices, but I'm having a difficult time tasting them. Its body is soft, delicate, and is an okay choice for a witbier. Too bad 750's run for $9.49.
