2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an unclear and yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, fruit, yeast and notes of lemon. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is dry. Overall a beer below average.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very pale hazy yellow colour, bit like a watered down witbier, white head. Weird malty aroma, herbal, bit chemical, sweet. Somewhat sweet flavour, bit spicy, very thin watery body.
In my opinion a decent example that not all old beer style recipes need to be recreated.
(From 33cL bottle @ home)

a drain pour. not sure if i got an old bottle or what (very good possibility). it was bland, watery and waaaay too sweet. i got a tiny bit of spice, some rose and lavender like notes, and rock candy sugars. finished thin and again sweet. ugh.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2011 The Jopenchurch in Haarlem doesn’t serve this as well as they bottle it (although the cozy church setting makes up for that) but it’s a special beer with a very strong aroma.

I got this for a try at a very old style of beer. I was not disappointed for what it is but glad that things have progressed. It is strange to have a beer with no hops and even the malt seems thin but this is decently drinkable. If i lived 500 years ago i would be alright to kick back a few. More herb and spice like than i thought but it doesn’t fill the palate like hops. An interesting history lesson but certainly not for everyone.

Bottle 30cl. More or less typical Belgium-style Witbeer, has although its own character. Nice!
