3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle: best before 19 Oct 2012, poured into a ’Hougaerdse DAS’ badged tumbler on 7 Aug 2012.
Slight haze to this pale yellow/light golden beer: on top a swiftly leaving white head that started thin and soon became a wisp and collar.
Wheaty smell, with yeast esters and some coriander hints: add citrusy notes too.
The taste is typical Belgian Witbier (I default towards Hoegaarden for this): refreshing and semi-bitter/sour with orange/coriander thoughts.
Not a huge fan of this style, but this is one of the best I’ve come across.
