Storm_Warning (78) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Currently drinking whilst typing. Nice aroma of a typical Belgian Wit character to it, also maltiness with peach, orange and citrus fruits. Looks great, a nice cloudy orange rust colour with a light fluffy white head. Tastes of Bernardus yeast strain esters, solid wheats and citrus notes which are smooth and with no bitterness, only sweetness instead. Smooth yet full mouthfeel with a clean finish and good body. Overall, this beer is delightful! Being a limited batch I couldn't refuse having one of these, so grab them while you can! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
