2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very fluffy white head, upheld by high carbonation in hazy beer, colour of unripe peach. End of bottle nearly solid flunk. Coriander & faint citrus, textbook, an a light salty (iodium?) whiff. Very high coriander level, getting the beer soupy, little citrus. Sweetness underneath, even a bit liquorice-like. Wheat acidity comes out stronger warming up. Wheat slickness, light to medium bodied, carbonation makes it nearly fizzy. A weak-tasting, flunky Hoegaarden made in Normandy. I utterly fail to see the point. How many in Leuven are making Camembert?
