AROMA: Light chamomile tea notes; slight orange juice. Floral scent. Nose is mild. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Apricot pale orange/amber hue. Very cloudy body though no visible sediment. Small, white foam. 2/3
Strong honey flavor throughout which is boosted by alcoholic presence.
General orange/coriander/tea flavor combination. Some vanilla essence at
the end. Has a flavor of cinnamon-dusted cookies, too. Sweet but not
cloying. Spice could use a boost. 17/20
full-bodied mouthfeel. Not syrupy as it finishes surprisingly clean.
Alcohol does play a major role in the palette and body; warm throughout
but tolerable. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Very interesting and
delectable palette. A bit boozy, but quite drinkable. Not very
reminiscent of a witbier, though. 8/10
TOTAL SCORE: 39/50
