3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Si tratta di una bianca leggermente atipica per la gradazione alcolica elevata (6%), infatti sull’etichetta parla di blanche double, a tripla fermentazione. Prodotta da Abbaye des Rocs, si presenta, differentemente dal tipico colore delle blanche, con un arancio-biondo molto carico, con un cappello di schiuma bianchissima e di breve durata. L’aroma è principalmente di malto, mentre il sapore molto pieno e appena tendente al dolce, e mette in risalto anche spezie e lievito. Media frizzantezza. Interessante.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A gift bottle from a Belgian friend from his cellar. Best before has passed in 2007, so this rating is maybe not comparable to the fresh ones. Quite heavy yeast growth in the bottom of the bottle, but with a carefull pour it came out clear amber though with no head whatsoever. I had to leave around an inch to the bottle to ensure that not too much yeasts poured out. Aroma is mild, biscuit, dead leaves. Taste is also quite mild and has pepper and mild carbonation. Surprisingly well preserved specimen that maybe has lost some of its aroma during the years.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Pours murky amber with a medium-sized white head and plenty of yeast sediment forming on the bottom and floating around - looks fairly unappealing but proves instantly the unfiltered nature of this beer. The aroma displays hayish and bready maltiness and fruitiness with an earthy, farmhouse -themed undertone. Taste is light sweet, low on bitterness and featuring ripe fruitiness, quite much maltiness with both barley and wheat contributing and yeasty spiciness. Peculiar mix for a witbier but not an unpleasant one. The palate is smooth, fairly full-bodied and creamy; very drinkable. Very, very unique witbier: not a total hit for me, but did show some good qualities.

Bonne surprise que cette blanche double. Très belle robe dorée. Peu de bulles. Légère amertume et petit parfum d’agrume pas désagréable. Passe un bon petit dej’.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Robe dorée, très belle mousse. Nez élégant sur des notes épicées (coriandre), levure sur un fond de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque ample, un bulle crémeuse, une rétro de houblon et une longue finale amère et équilibrée. De nouveau une très belle blanche, tout en puissance, à l’inverse de la précédente.
