Blanche francese con aspirazioni(vane)di arrivare a livello delle wit belghe.
Versa un nebbioso giallo, Gran schiuma bianca e frizzante. Al naso riflessi di pompelmo e mela con un pizzico di lievito.Acida e leggermente amara in bocca.Retrogusto citrino.Niente di speciale ma si lascia bere.
Nota a margine,bevuta con un bel piatto di linguine al sugo di gallinella di mare e devo dire che s’è accompagnata validamente.

Buona blanche particolarmente asprigna, da abbinare con rigore a piatti di pesce non molto pesanti o a primi di pesce saltati in padella (o anche con sughetti di pesce un po’ cremosi, dato che sgrassa abbastanza); non è una bevanda eccezionale, ma si lascia bere.

bottle - pours cloudy yellow, large white frothy-fizzy head with good lacing. Nose presents grapefruit and apple with a hint of doughy yeast, which carries over to the taste, lightly sour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl bottle, as shown. Hazy, impenetrable pale yellow colour (blanche-r even than most wheat bears I know), big creamy head. Aroma of sweet bananas, but with a lemony yeast touch added. Bananas dominate the flavour, too, but they’re far less sweet than the aroma seemed to indicate. There’s even a whiff of perfume. Sour and slightly bitter finish, citric aftertaste. A lean wheat beer, less fruity than the German kind (Paulaner, Weihenstephan, you name ’em), and not as full-bodied. But a good wheat beer for warm weather, and it’ll grow on you as you keep drinking - which is what I’m doing right now. ;=)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At last a French witbier with some genuine character that doesn’t taste revoltingly synthetic. Milky lemony haze heaped with froth and lace. Aroma standard orange peel and crushed coriander seed, with a sourish wheaty edge, and some alcohol. Lemony and peppery with hints of grain, booze and cardboard, and a background whiskeyish note. Impressively full-bodied, natural-tasting witbier/blanche.
