Bottle ("Special"). Thanks to KL. Light lemon nose, with some very light peach and yeast. Very pale apple juice color. Grain, yeast, thin sweet fruitiness, small bittering. Finish is more or less balanced, and then goes just a bit sweet. Thin body, pleasant mouthfeel. Nice, little one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ik vind de beschrijving niet kloppen. Dit is een witkap pater speciaal. BIj openen flesje lag bijna alles door het koolzuur naast me glas, ben gewaarschuwd. Mooie witte schuimkraag. Zeer luchtig bier met tonen van lentebloem. Mooi bier.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle, as Witkap-Pater Special (belge), Délices et Caprices 08/2014. Pours a yeast cloudy amber...generous yeast-pillow inflected bouquet of wild blossoms and amber, dry caramalts and some caramelised honey, pure autumn meadow. Taste sees more of those amber spéciale belge traits reappea, such as caramalt aromatics, honey-coated hazelnut, more yeast fruitiness. A Witkap-distinct, well drinkable take on a style all too rare... Please someone enter this as "Special" conform to the label?

Amber with white head. Nose:Malts, grain, some spices, yeast. Taste is grain, malty, sugar, yeast, and something that makes me think about a kind of soda drinkb(7up?).sweet finish, soft body. Has mainly a grainy character, Okey beer. But not that special..
