The Kronenbourg Blac is a decent drinking beer....more subtle than most Wits I've tried. The beer pours a cloudy pear color with thin white head that is leaving a modest lace. The scent carries fruit like spices to the tune of dried apricot. The taste is evenly balance with spice and malt. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a sessionable wit.

This beer is, quite frankly, just plain delicious.

Served on tap it has a big frothy head and a slightly cloudy pale yellow/gold appearance.

The nose is citrus but not over the top, at this point I was thinking "Well this'll be a nice summer sip".

The taste is amazing, white peach dominates with layers of dried citrus peel and cloves. The inherent sweetness that many witbiers have is hinted at but it doesn't have any cloying after taste. The first sip leads to second gulp and very quick re-order.

The finish is long and clean and leaves you wanting more. I had three in rapid succession at my first sitting and two in a short time the next.

Highly, very highly, recommended.

Please note, these ratings apply only to the "on tap" product. I recently had it in bottle and would probably drop a full point off the ratings
