2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. ’Desselgems bier waarvan Briek nooit een klakske zou laten staan.’ For sure! Hazy golden beer with lots of carbon. Well balanced, but nothing exceptional.

Appearance of a witbier, but too carbonated. Some gushing. Nose of grains and yeast. Taste of grain, wheat, yeast, coriander.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer celebrating Flanders’s cycling culture, since 2010. Thick, cream white, sticky head, cloudy peach blonde colour. Yeasty sourishness in the nose along with gingerbread, lemon zest, yoghurt, cardboard, hay, dried mushrooms and green apple. Neutral onset with strong carbonation, faint fruit sweetness, bready malt base, sourish hint making the finish dryish along with unpleasant solvents and insufficient hop bitterness.

Een deftig blond biertje waar veel smaak aan is in tegenstelling tot zoveel blonde bieren. Een aanrader om eens te proberen.

330 ml. bottle. This one was a gusher. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, grain, and spice. Taste is lemon, orange, yeast, grain, and pepper. Somewhat sweet I thought. Decent Witbier.

Average Belgian witbier. Has a bit different herbs than the usual witte, but it’s all modest and friendly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, wheat, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced fruity/earthy yeast, bready malt, and hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, hops, and bready malt flavors; with good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this a nice and pleasant summer saison style. Well balanced yeast, hop, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
