Blond color. Strange aroma, a bit of wheat but also chemicals. Very ordinary body.

La troublette is a well rounded witbier with a pleasant tartness and subtle corriander notes.

Underrated this one imo. I think this is the best belgian white I had so far. Aroma is good, strong. Spicy and Citrus. Taste is very full, spices and citrus. Strong taste yet refreshing. Very decent brew by Caracole.

Wow now this is something that I can really get into. The cork flew off as soon as I twisted the cage off to reviel a wondeful spicy and sour aroma that had me thinking this beast a geuze.. Pours very clear and reveals a nice lemon/lactic aroma. The taste is sour and vanilla (very faint) and brings in the usual wheat taste. Truly a wonderful summer beer!!!

Shared 750ml bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow. Good white head that lasted awhile. This was too sour for me. Biting into a lemon type fruit sourness.

2 years in the bottle. Yellow-Gold, Medium high carbonation can cause a large fizzy head unless poured carefully. Recedes quickly. Very mild, not going far in any one direction. Clean, subtle wheat character, not overly spicy with orange or coriander. Some citric tartness. Refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Cork Dated 01-2002. This brew had an invigorating head of small to large white bubbles and little lacing. Its body is a cloudy weak watered down pee color that has carbonation rising up the side of the glass. It tastes fizzy and has no initial or after bite. It was a drinkable beer to start the evening off with but not much more. Hotstuff got the burps after just a half a glass.
