25/IV/15 - on tap as St. Monon Blanche (but was presented with the 1673 label when asking for more information) @ ZBF 2015 (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2015-507) Thanks to the Belgian ratebeer crew for sharing today’s beers!
Clear yellow to blond beer, no head. Aroma: sweet, very fruity, spicy, lots of coriander. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very spicy, lots and lots of orange peel, coriander, little bitter, some weird fake lemon flavour, like toilet freshener. Aftertaste: soapy, orange peel, coriander, pretty unbalanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2015 ’Tarwedubbel’ from this brewery, originally marketed as Saint-Monon 1673 and tasted as such years ago, but now apparently sold as Saint-Monon Blanche (at least at ZBF). Thin, creamy head and hazy peach blonde colour; aroma of soapy wheat, lemon zest, coriander but luckily more subtle than in all those Hoegaarden clones, white bread, sour berries, melon, aniseed, orange peel. Crisp taste, smooth with a fruity sourishness, ’deep’ wheat sourishness too, citrus fraîcheur somewhere as well as bittering spiciness, smooth, honeyish malts, hoppier than expected (as is often the case in these artisanal Wallonian witbiers), with subtle but noticeable bitterness. This is not going to push the limits of this particular style, but it is well-crafted and does show some personality. In any case much better than that Saint-Monon en Fêtes failure...
