3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge white head, quickly diminishing. Hazy gold-yellow beer, champenoise pearling. Wheat, very citrussy, flowery nose. Refreshing acidity around grain, wheat, flour, mannah. A bit lactic (buttermilk)character. Lemony finish. Light mouthfeel, refreshing. Long grainy, yeasty aftertaste. A quite OK wit.

The aroma is dominated by yeast - a fine aroma. The color is amber and it has no head. The flavor is very fruity with citrus notes.

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.
