Gangstergafje (1388) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2018
29-01-2018; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Voss, Norway).
The looks of the beer are nice. It looks like you can expect from a witbier. The colour of the beer is a slightly pale golden yellow. It is not as light as some Witbiers can be. The beer has a slight nice haze. On top of the beer a ridiculous thick layer of white soft foam is formed. I love the thick soft layer. Foam retention is remarkably good. Most thick layers like this collapse quickly, but not this layer of foam.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is not your typical Witbier, but it sure has some Witbier touches. I smell some nice simple malts, with a slight simple note of bubblegum. Hops give some citrus and herbal notes. There are also the Witbier notes of coriander and orange zest. Very nice. Yeast gives some nice slightly acidic aroma's. Nice tarty and also some touches of sour fruit. It reminds me of Tripel Karmeliet.
When tasting, the foam is quite flavourful. It has some strong orange zest flavours and also a nice slightly tart yeast flavour. It has some notes in it that remind me of Tripel Karmeliet. Quite nice tasting foam...most beers have a rather tasteless foam. The beer itself has the same taste. Nice zesty and slightly herbal hops, coriander and orange zest, some nice sweet malts and a slimly tart fruity yeast note. All in all, well balanced and very nice.
The palate of the beer is nice. The body of the beer is light, and the beer has a slight sticky edge... Carbonation is medium. The finish of the beer is not to strong. It has some zesty and coriander notes, some tart yeast. Not bad, but compared to the taste a bit mild. All in all...a nice beer. Beer that expected when taking the first step. The beer shouldn't be served to cold, since this mellows all flavours. Ravnstone (93) - - JAN 4, 2018

37,5cl bb? Gulating Trondheim - Kort: lovely young stonefruit-centered Wit with natural, slightly wild open fermenter Weissbier accents and an easy drinkability that tops many a sugar-studded Belgian Wit. Aroma: wheat parfait, young mirabelle quark and sweet green grape on yoghurt, white pepper, apple, cardamom? Velvety, not too carbonated and very well balanced. Almond bread, white bread, stone fruit, lemon-coated coriander. Subtle, gentle, lovely with a hard-to-pinpoint wild/"open system" touch. Jugga (40) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2017

Good clarity, with sediment left behind, to this golden-flax colored beer. Big, foamy white head slowly recedes to cover.
Light coridander, white pepper phenols and bits of honey and light white bread. Clean, as seems to be the case from this brewer, with nothing flashy but also low on peach-banana-bubble gum (though some banana breaks through). It comes together homogeneously, with nothing dominating/out-of-place, though there is a bit more clove and coriander than I’d like. No alcohol/flaw.
Big, expansive, natural carbonation highlights the bready/starchy grains while also accentuating the peppery phenols and moderate yeast/coriander acidity. Balances quite nicely, though again, a bit more clove on the end than I’d prefer. But it’s got a good malt character often not seen in this style and doesn’t have an insipid bubble gum character that I dislike in many examples. Some light citrus, more grain, honey and pepper lingering with gentle to moderate acidity balancing the sweetness.
0.33l bottle. Pours a cloudy pale golden body with a medium white top. Aroma of wheat, corn and a light fruityness. Taste is balanced. Some sweet wheaty, malty flavors along with notes of pastry and flowers. A very subtle bitterness to round it off. Light fruity. Moderate dry finish.
