COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After the Applebocq and the Redbocq, the Brasserie du Bocq is pleased to announce the birth of the Agrumbocq … The idea for the Agrumbocq arose first of all in the mind of our master brewer. Once again, the starting point is our white beer made by top fermentation to which mandarin juice and the natural aromas of grapefruit and lime are added. Its cloudy appearance, its natural pink grapefruit colour, its fine slightly pinkish head and its pleasantly fruity fragrance are certainly going to delight the most delicate palates. A perfect balance is achieved through the sweet and acid taste of the citrus fruit and the slight bitterness that it releases. It is defined as a very light and refreshing beer. You are advised to drink it very cool. It is ideal after sport! It has barely 3% alcohol volume. The Agrumbocq is currently available in kegs and 25-cl bottles.

MagnumPI (56) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2009
A new beer from Du Bocq brewery which has mandarin, lemon and lime flavourings. This surely cant be classed as a beer, as it tastes and feels like sparkling water mixed with some squash. It is low on alcohol but doesn’t feel even vaguely alcoholic. It is marketed as refreshing on hot days, and was drunk on a hot day, and to be fair didnt taste revolting like some fruit beers. The appearance was carbonated amber, with little to no head, and it tastes exactly as its advertised - citrus piffle

JorisPPattyn (7887) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2009
Fluffy transparant-white head, fed by lively carbonated hazy Isabel-coloured liquid. Partly artificial version of grapefruit/orangepeel. Grapefruitpeels (between the parts) getting stronger. Faint sour-sweet and bitter peelhints - in the nose, always. Very sweet, lightly sourish flavour, reminding me of citrus-"enriched" dishwashing liquid, after thinning. No trace of bitterness left, childrens’ sweets-like. Light, spritzy, soft-drinks feel. As terrible as expected.

sebletitje (6646) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2009
25cl bottle. pours very clear golden, thick white head. aroma of strong gapefruit, lime and hints of mandarine, reminds me of freshner. taste, mandarine, light and smooth with some light bittersweet hints in the finish. Felt like drinking a refreshing tonic or lemonade, hints of wheat. Label refers to it as a wit bier, not a fruit beer.

Bottle, 25 cl. (Willems) Hazy light yellow color, with a white head. Aroma grapefruit, (syrups) sweetness.Thin to medium body. Taste like oranges, grapefruit, sweet syrups, it’s a mix of beer and a soft drink.
