Bottle. Typical belgian white beer pour. Fruity aromas: pear, fresh apples (jonagold), large wheat aroma. Taste is again relatively sweet with predominantly pear and sugar in the palate. Almost like pear juice with some grains. Radish infused with cherries in the aftertaste. A little too sweet for me.

[email protected] Bryssel. Blekgul och grumlig vtska med tjock skumkrona. Doftar uteslutande godisbananer. Pepprig smak med ytterligare godisbananer. Men va f-n det r ju knslan att prova en belgare p plats!

jaghana (5770) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle 25cl, a cloudy yellow beer with medium head. Nose is grainy with lemony touch. Aroma is on light wheat, orange notes, wet paper, grainy, very low body, touch of diacetyl at the finish, dusty hops. A very poor beer.

Cimbasso (868) - - OCT 26, 2014
Sampled on draught at the Caf de Paris by the harbour in St.Tropez. Possibly the most expensive beer I have ever purchased, but I guess you are paying for the location and the view of all those 50m yachts. The beer is a hazy golden colour with a firm white head, and aromas of lemon and coriander. The taste is rich with flavours of dried citrus peel with spicy notes of cloves and coriander. Pleasantly refreshing bitterness from the hops. A good witbier with vivid flavours and plenty of character, but possibly lacking the subtlety of other Belgian brews. Highly drinkable.

Tsekouratos (603) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - SEP 24, 2014
250 ml bottle. Yellow hazy color with a thin white head. Aromas of lemon and yeast firstly. Tastes of lemon, coriander, yeast, some sweetness. Light body with medium carbonation.

Mr_Pink_152 (4362) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2014
250ml bottle. Cloudy pale colour with thin head. Aroma is citrus and wheat. Taste is dried citrus peel and lots of coriander. More Hoegaarden than Hoegaarden.
