2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl fliptop, merci Allen! - yet another technically masterfully executed spice-attack on a perfectly balanced Belgian Witbier recipe. Base is in itself a pleasing enough honey-frontal wit with some citrus, a far relative of Dupont’s biere de miel. BUT: as I had no scallopine milanese at hand to foodpair this with, I had no use for the sage and challenge anyone to sense a dire lack of sage in their beer.
BFM for me so far: Belgian beer goes marché paysan, beer goes spice bath, beer goes foot bath. Forget the Germany-US beer divide, the true frontier is at the Germanic-Romanic divide in CH and B...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml flip top bottle. Pours a cloudy yet sparkling golden yellow with no head, almost wine like. Aroma and Taste is mild sweet herbal spices, light malt, slightly pungent yeast with light bitterness, some alcohol essence and tartness. Palate is a medium body, smooth, with light carbonation. Finish is sweet and bitter herbal spices, sage, Belgian yeast, some fruity notes, almost like a white wine. Overall an interesting brew that grows on you as you drink, a good after dinner brew.

This is tasty. Don’t really notice the sage all that much,except way after finished drinking. Taste quite a bit like a crisp Belgian blonde. Nice.
