UXO (1734) - CANADA - FEB 27, 2017
Appearance: translucent dirty pale gold with two fingers of fizzy white head diminishing rapidly to a persistent thick creamy cap, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: doughy yeast, orange peel, banana, coriander/clove, hint of floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Palate: Medium-light slightly slick body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter and spicy warming finish. (4/5) Im pretty sure this is the first time Ive ever had a double white, and its not your typical Belgian, thats for sure. Initially, the aroma is dominated by a bready, doughy yeast completely unlike anything Ive encountered in a Belgian before. (Though quite similar to e.g. Council Brewings house yeast, which Im sure is 100% Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or bakers yeast.) That doughy aroma settles back along with the initially large and fizzy white head, allowing the more traditional Witbier aromas to come through. The higher alcohol seems to come through in the middle and finish, presenting as - well, its not fair to say solvent-like, since that implies a harshness thats not present - but certainly a sweet slick warmth not present in a typical Witbier. For the second glass, I swirled in the lees, and both the curaao orange peel and coriander spiciness amped up considerably. Not without its charms, but fairly middle of the pack both for Witbiers and for Belgian beers in general. (14/20)

Holmen1 (5474) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2017
Fra flaske (flasket 26.11.16) p Mi2 Cardinal feb-17: lett uklar korngul med flott skum som varer. Iflg papiromslaget er ingrediensene "water barley malt, wheat malt, hoops, yeast, sugar, coriander, curacaopeels". I tillegg til dette finner jeg et snev av banan. Frisk, spennende og velsmakende.
