lesifflebiere (1025) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Bien pétillante, couleur paille, plutôt épaisse, elle dévoile un nez épicé et invitant de levures allemandes. Les bananes sont en bouche, mais aussi un goût tenace de pain. Plutôt complexe pour une blanche, elle est désaltérante tout en étant puissante en saveurs. Un délice estival.

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur dorée laiteuse et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes) et épicées (coriandre, notes de poivre), de blé, moyen de céréales fraîches avec des notes de houblon herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, surtout de citron, faibles traces de fruits tropicaux) et épicées (coriandre piquante) avec des notes de pain lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de blé avec un léger goût de céréales fraîches puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales ainsi que des traces d’épices (poivre doux). Post-goût moyen, composé d’un goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) avec une légère amertume de houblon ainsi quye des notes de blé. (8 février 2013)

mcberko (5357) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Benelux, pours a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander, some citrus peel and yeast. Flavour is quite citrusy upfront, with a gentle tartness, some coriander, and a bit of yeast. Soft palate and nicely refreshing.
