3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Witbier with fruit, more specifically mirabel, a kind of small plum. Soft and mild, wheaty sourishness, the fruit not overpowering or overtly sweet, little coriander. I kind of like its subtlety, though it is not my favorite style.

I don’t know whether this should be labeled as fruit beer. It’s a standard Belgian witbier, with quite a lot of added fruit, but the basis is a witbier.

It’s not really a Christmas Tasting in Odense. Pale yellow with a small white head. Fruity aroma with a perfumed spiced note. Sweet with a fruity tart note, lots of mirabelle.

29/X/12 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ Erwin’s place - BB: no markings to indicate date (2012-1219) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the beer!
Cloudy pale milky yellow beer, big irregular creamy head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet sugary, floral, yeast, bit soapy, freshly cut grass. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sweet start, fruity, a sour touch, green apple skin, bit yeasty character. Aftertaste: green apples, little sour, bitter, yeasty touch, lemony. Is this beer with apples? (looked it up, apparently it’s with plums, which explains the sour touch)
