Pale hazy yellow color with lot of fluffy head with good retention.
Light aroma of Belgian yeast and pineapple.
Refreshing citric flavor, orange-lemon like, with notes of yeast and pineapple. Decent beer. I liked it but not even close to Hoegaarden and alike. Less spicy, complex and even refreshing.

A: Hazy / cloudy pastel yellow. Small white head that falls super fast. A few streams of bubbles. A ring stays, but not rally any lacing action is noticed.

S: Coriander more than orange/citrus peel. Not very strong though. Light hint of grainy malt in the background. Pleasant enough.

T: Again – balanced to coriander, but much more rich and robust. Nice mix that is predominately herbal with some citrus & a bit of peppery spice. Backbone wheat & grainy malts. Towards the end the herbal hops shine free from the coriander and linger on in the finish. Just a ghostly hint of pucker.

M: Medium / light with firm yet softly textured carbonation. Flash of sugars up front, but it is rather attenuated with a strong herbal drying finish.

D: Glorious simplicity. Not as complex as some, but it hits a few key notes with a very deft touch and good balance. Very solid, if a bit basic (great depth though to what is there), super approachable and drinkable. The firm herbal coriander & edge of a pucker lend a slightly rustic impression.

So i went back to the BBC a week later asking if they still had the Palenqera lulo. No -they said- but we have the bacata blanca.

So this is certainly a hyperdynamic brewery in the better sense of the word. not a few days go by and you can get a sense of something new they're trying. fantastic. i find myself having a renewed love for my local micro.

I presumed initially this would be a witbier (blanca=white=wit) but i found myself having a hard time classifying it as it was brought to me. in the end, american pale wheat seems more adequate.

Poured in a duvel tulip (the first time around, second pour was in a BBC tulip), more orange seeming than golden pale. nice white shiny head. pour definetly more akin to an SN wheat than a Hoegaarden.

Smell also inclines to the drier, less citric wheat feel of the american kinds rather than the wheat. not too strengthy but is there and is certainly pleasant. maybe a bit mouldy at times, even forging some hefe feel there.

Taste is good and refreshing. soft, dry wheat and malts blend with a modest hoppy finish, which rather than cutting and contrasting is enhancing of the feel. body is medium, not too heavy and rather well carbonated and inviting. and has a seemingly well concealed booze because, as i pleasantly sipped through 3 of these, i progressively became more talkative. very subtle, but not bad at all.

A good beer, i'll stick to classics (see: chia weiss) but this beer is a worthy tap by what i consider is still the best brewery in this country.
