3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blanche de Namur
Brewed spring 06, whitened 04/07
Medium pour in a chalice.
Poured a hazy golden yellow, with floaties, with a moderate fizzy somewhat diminishing white head.
Smelt of moderate coriander, flowery wheat, lemons and light anise
Taste was upfront moderate sour sweet and bitter lemon and white doughiness followed by a moderate yeasty dough and bitter spices on an average finish.
Palate was light bodied, lively carbonated, slightly dry.
Overall, a very refreshing Belgian white that satisfied very well. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Yellow/orange body with creamy frothy white head. Big yeast nose. Must say how nice the lacing was. Taste is all fruit-yeast blend. Lots of carbination. This would have been great on a hot summer day. Thanks for the Mystery trade!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong fruity aroma shows big hints of lemon and maybe orange. Nice and hazy in the glass. In the mouth I found it refreshing and smooth, but slightly one shallow in flavor: the fruit seemed to have disappeared. The finish is somewhat ho-hum, this nothing really to say. A nice little white that shouldn’t be turned donw, but truly just another average beer in the bunch.

Tasted at Gollem bar, Amsterdam. Cloudy yellow. Quickly fading head. Medium sweet, with light wheat, citrus, butter, and coriander. A standard, but not exceptional wit.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 Coriander is a bit overwhelming, but not disturbing at all for a coriander lover like me. No bitter at all, very refreshing beer. Taste it with a brown truot!!

Hella old bottle but i picked it up anyways cuz i love witbiers. Pour is a fizzy yellow beer with tons of sediment in equilibrium. Head is dead on arrival. Light aroma of yeast but thats about it. Flavor a flat and bland taste of coriander. Such a shame i had to find a old and very poor condition of this blanche.

I poured a huge head for some reason. Beautiful color, quite cloudy. Very clean taste, can taste orange. Not much in the way of mouthfeel, but is very refreshing. I would definetely enjoy this with a meal.
