3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautifull golden color. The beer is crystal clear. It is fizzling lively. A shame the foam disappears almost a immediately. The smell is hoppy and citrusy. The taste of the beer is quite flat. Not as lively as the smell. The beer has a little bitterness, very little. This is balanced by some slight sours and sweets. All tastes are lightly present. The beer is not bad, but not very special. It misses a ’wow factor’.

Bottle in a Samoens resteraunt. Hazy golden with a very quickly dissipating white head. Wheat aroma. Sweet taste with spice and orange citrus. Herbal notes too. OK.

0,33 cl bottle. Yellow / golden coloured beer. Small white head that’s quickly gone. Taste is yeast with a bit fruity. Kinda watery and lacks definition.

Lys blank, lite skum, det lukter hvete, egentlig veldig tam med lite smak, kul flaske, men innholdet var skuffende.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une blanche classique avec des arômes de citron, de froment et de coriandre et une bouche ronde, fraîche et équilibrée à défaut d’être longue et complexe. Agréable et raffraîchissante après une journée de ski.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Belgian-style witbier brewed near the Mont Blanc. Cloudy yellow colour with lightly greenish hue; irregular, milky and moussy, snow white head. Aroma of white bread, wheat, coriander seed, dried orange peel, lemon zest, fresh fish (I stress the word ’fresh’), soap, banana, cheese spread, chalk, raw potato. Fruity onset (green apple, water melon, unripe plum, gooseberry) with strong, sharp and minerally carbonation, sweetish and bready, with the typical wheaty sourishness setting in quickly; somewhat drying coriander effect in the middle, but relatively subtle, as well as the expected curaçao, both more restrained than is often the case in "real" Belgian witbier so that the grains can remain dominant; yeasty and a bit starch-like, fluffy mouthfeel, smooth, finishing in a kind of chalkiness, a bready malt sweetishness, restrained wheaty sourishness and starchy yeastiness, hops practically undetectable but still there for purely structural purposes. In all: though a bit past its prime, this is still a very refreshing and quenching witbier, but very cliché. Enjoyable nonetheless, with the bready ’barley factor’ being more prominent than the wheaty sourishness. Big thanks to Marie for bringing me this bottle from France, along with the amber ale from this brewery, which was unknown to me before.
