3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Organic wheat beer (’tarwedubbel’) since 2010, with off-white, thin head and cloudy yellow blond colour with greenish hue. Aroma obviously wheaty, green apple, soap, grapefruit, bread, jute; bready, soft sourish, grainy taste, some coriander, relatively strong hop bitterness in the finish, at least for this style. Like many Wallonian witbier examples, this has more body than the standard Hoegaarden clones most of us are likely more familiar with.

330ml bottle - Thanks Marduk
Total fucking unbelievable citrus lemon aroma, so much lemon I can hardly belive it. (OK, maybe not that much, but it is certainly supremely citrussy. Some lime too. Alas it’s totally bland in the mouth. Poured more crap into the glass,and it looked less anaemic, and there was much more body, but the whole thing is more soapy. Pretty weird one. Had some potential while it was not yeasty enough, but didn’t expand on its potential once I threw more in.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Labeled Bio Organic, no mention of Blanche but the label mentions wheat. 5.9%, 33cl bottle dated best by April 2016, guessing April 2014 bottling.
Clear gold with a short white head. Aroma is lightly yeasty with faint noble hop touches. Lightly lactic, a tad musty, sweet with mild bitterness and noticeable starchiness. Saccharine sweetness becomes dominant. Simple.
