Previously brewed at DuBocq (Nov 2013)

Blanche Des Moines is brewed on 60% pilsener malt and 40% unmalted wheat. In spite of a close affinity to the Flemish witbiers this is somewhat different. It is brewed with a higher proportion of unmalted wheat which adds even more of the special, wheaty notes that are so characteristic for the style. Naturally the beer has been added coriander and dried orange peel. Furthermore an extract of licorice root has been added. Primary fermentation is with a classical Witbier yeast and the beer is bottle fermented.

Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow colour. Small white head. Weak, spicy wit aroma. Quite citric flavour, hint of spices in the aftertaste. Thin, but refreshing.

Ungstrup (30003) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
A light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with lots of lemon - too much for me. The flavor is sweet citrusy - very one-dimensional, and it is way too carbonated, the mouthfeel is like drinking a sodapop.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy, pale golden with a small, white head - a very classical witbier appearance. Typical aroma of coriander and citrus. Rather high carbonation. Light body with notes of wheat and citrus and a somewhat perfumy edge. A fresh and quenching Wit. 210506
