*Old rating from 2011. Strange vegetable nose - a strange idea to brew a beer with chicory-cabbage.... The beer starts strange bitter, herbal with hints of malt. Earth, mouldy cabbage (?), quite dry. Very strange mouldy taste... I can’t finish this one... Beer with chicory-cabbage doesn’t seem to be my thing...

Nose is perfumey, white wine. Flavor is orchard fruit, spicy clove, more floral. But sticky on the palate.

Murky brown with a good head that quickly dissipates. Berries, apricot, plums, oak casks on the nose. Taste starts slightly sweet, flash of sourness all around the mouth and ends with bitterness. Leaves a bitterness with an earthy,peaty taste in the mouth. Very cool.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Dormaal Wit Goud (White Gold)) 375 ml bottle at home, as White Gold, everything in english on the bottle. Corked and caged, served into a tulip, ABV 8%
The cork went flying the moment I released it off its cage. Thankfully no gush. Very hazy on the body, orange in colour, huge slightly off-white head, collapsing quickly and then stabilizing to one finger of foam, with excellent retention.Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of belgian yeast, cooked egetables, light grapes, peach, apricot, faint caramel.
Tasts has fruity notes of peaches and apricots, light grains, some nuts, alcohol, sugars, yeast, a very faint touch of sourness, white wine hints. Nicely bitter on the aftertaste.
Medium body, highly carbonated.
Very good, I liked it.

Aroma of yeast, fruit, vegetable, floral notes, spices, a little farmhouse funk. Flavour is slightly tart, moderate sweet, with a moderate bitter finish. Enjoyable enough.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Also tasted as Winter 11. A beer paying tribute to the Brussels ’witloof’ culture of Kampenhout, a much-revered vegetable, basically the leaves of the chicory plant, cultured in the dark and therefore remaining white, in: having been deprived of photosynthesis. This vegetable is a 19th-century Brussels invention and remains justly popular in Belgium; its bitter roots have effectively been used in this beer as a support for the hops. Thick, sticky, off-white but rapidly breaking head, hazy orange blonde colour. Estery aroma of apple, peach, apricot, pineapple, honey, yeast, earth, roots, bark, grass. Fruity onset, mellow honeyish matiness, starch-like powdery mouthfeel, yeasty and rooty, with bitterish tail in which the leafy bitterness of the hops is difficult to distinguish from the earthy bitterness of the chicory roots; some warming alcohol as well, but not disturbing. Quite interesting, if you’re into earthy, estery Belgian ’yeastiness’, but could have been more elegant and more balanced.
