4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy and cloudy light golden. White head.
Aroma reminds of carefully treated Brettanomyces, in a way similar to Orval. Scents of yeast, cider, bread dough and lime. No banana aromas, as in many other white beers.
Sheer acidity and tinges of sweetness and metallicity, but no bitterness. Very interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Albert Heijn supermarket, Amsterdam (€1.89):
This one struck me as being a pretty average witbier if I’m honest, it was in no way a bad offering but it didn’t really excite me either and I’m not sure it’s one that I’d be likely to pick up again in truth. The nose was quite light and overall so was the beer with a nice zesty, citrus taste that was refreshing and easy to drink but it wasn’t a stand out witbier by any means; enjoyable but not a must try I’m afraid.

Interesting Hefeweizen. It differs from it’s German style-likes in a much spicier aroma.
