Lekker witbier, mag wel koud gedronken worden. Iets voller van smaak dan de meeste witbieren

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale golden unclear beer with a good white head. Smells more like a german weizen instead of a belgian white. Bit banana and lemon smell. Taste is boring. Pretty standard belgian white taste. Also some tones of licorice? Good carbo, wstery texture and thin body. Not a bad beer but very average.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is citrus, yeast and some light fruits. Flavour is light lemon, medium malty and has a quite watery palate. Decent beer, but could be better for a witbier.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
30cl bottle, Bier&Co Rotterdam, NL sampler. - typical gruut/gruit wit, rather flat on taste and with cooking&baking spices supplanting hop bitterness. Lactic yellow, thin palate. Still drinkable, but not a joy to down.
If this is brewed after an age-old Harlem recipe, why has it been brewed in commission by Van Steenberghe and then Huyghe, both two very lacklustre Flemish contractor breweries from the wider Gent area not very renowned for theirs wits (eh), when Gent already has its own true-to-the-medieval style Gruut brewery? Still minimally more characteristic than Huyghe’s own Blanche des Neiges.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy gold with yeast floaters and a foamy, nice hugs the glass lacy, lasting white head. The smell is malty with lots of spices like coriander mixed with the hoppy citrus and flowery as well as yeast. Malt, herbal and flowers. The body is medium oily with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet wheat with some light citrus and yeast and a thin finish. Easy to drink and light. A good session beer.

Bottle at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a cloudy amber with a thin white frothy head. The aroma is of banana leading to a fruity, yeasty, very slightly malty flavour with some citrus notes on the palate.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
300 ml bottle, poured into a tumbler glass. ABV 5%.
One finger of white head, with low retention but it never disappeared comnpletely, instead some foam traces remained on the beer’s surface. Pale yellow colour on the body, slighty hazy.
Aroma is faint, mostly of wheat and then even fainter of the gruit mix.
Taste is great, wheat, gale, I think I am getting some green tea, some honey too. Good balanced sweetness/bitterness.
Medium thin body, carbonation slighty above average.
Nice witbier, the gruit herbs giving it an interesting twist.
