Au fût, dans un resto place Jourdan, à Etterbeek (Brussels). Jaune trouble, effervescence moyenne, col blanc épais persistant. On goûte bien ce qui fait tout le sel de la blanche avec le mélange de céréales et de fruité citronné avec ici une bonne petite amertume sur la fin. Coup de cœur!

Alengrin (4519) - BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2016
From tap at Bier Central in Antwerp. The latest addition to this brand of ’pseudo-abbey beers’, with a very dense and creamy, snow white, ’beaten egg’-like, lacing head and fully cloudy yellow blonde colour with slightly greenish hue, very typical witbier appearance. Aroma of sugared lemon, coriander seed, orange peel, cloves, white bread, green apple, soap, raw cauliflower. Soft fruity onset, apple with a touch banana, mildly sourish with refreshing citrus peel effect, smooth and fluffy mouthfeel, very soapy ’wheatiness’, finishing with long but gentle soapy coriander flavour, a somewhat chalky feeling, lingering apple sweetishness and a hint of refreshing lemon peel. Very cliché witbier completely according to the old Hoegaarden standard, a tad too sweet for the style in my opinion and clearly intended to please the masses without shocking them; technically well-made and refreshing, but I still don’t see the point in yet another Hoegaarden clone!

Interesting beer. Pours a very cloudy yellow. Lots of citrus and banana aromas. But the taste falls flat and watery.

Pale yellow cloudy with small white creamy head. Sweetish aroma with coriander notes. Moderate sour taste with some vanilla sweetness and good coriander notes, followed by certain bitterness.

TedE (985) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2015
On tap @ Cafe Georgette, Brussels. Pours cloudy honey with small cream head. Nose is sour. Taste is sour chalky, finish is abrupt. I love the cleanliness of this beer, like water distilled through layers of sandstone. Brilliant.
