3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Regional beer taken over from Villers when it ceased brewing in 1998 and apparently referring to the village of Hamme, the inhabitants of which are nicknamed "Wuiten". Beige, sticky head over a copper coloured beer, surely too dark to be called a genuine tripel; in fact this is even closer to a dubbel. Fruity and estery nose, sweetish, malty taste, light, with dryish finish of a mild herbal hop bitterness. Decent but nothing to hunt for - or to even remember.

I donít know where I got this bottle from. I think itís made for some kind of festival at Hamme, but Iím not sure about that. 33cl bottle at home. Pours out golden, lightly orange coloured. 609 in biggest letters at the etiket, "Wuitensbier" some smaller. Some kind of "shield" at the middle. At the back it say "Tripel bier", so added the beer under that style. Small to medium head, only the last part seems to hold, so wonít hold good. Sour-sweet, a bit earthy smell. Lots of spices inside. The smell is better then expected. The taste is a bit like pilsener. Warming, and some more body, but the spices and sourness makes the taste a bit like pils. Itís a bit sweet also, a pretty dry finish. Itís not bad, but a bit simple. But better balanced then expected for a unknown beer.
