Some time ago, I went with some friends to the OpenAir museum in the Netherlands. In this museum, many buildings from the past centuries are being preserved to show how people used to live during the last centuries. And of course one of these buildings is a brewery (from early 1900) and since two years, the Dutch amateur beer brewing champion from 2007, brews several beers that which can be bought in the museum and in some liquor shops in Arnhem. The beer I review here, is the summer white beer (top-fermenting, like all white beers).
The beer is bottled in a truly beautiful stone bottle of 75 cl. Poured into a Hoegaarden glass. The beer pours a hazy yellow-gold color, with a large, three finger thick, fluffy head.
Smell: wheat, coriander, citrus fruits (lemon, orange zest)
Taste: Wow, so soft. Sweet wheat and soft malts. Clear banana taste (creamy), with some hints of citrus and passion fruit. There are several taste layers (unique for a white beer). First clear sweet banana, gradually changing into very very mild hoppy bitterness, followed by a change back to a mild, creamy and sweet aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. Medium-thick bodied (very thick for the style) and so incredibly creamy.
Overall: This must be one of THE or maybe the best white beer I ever had. This beer has it al for me. Such a pity it is so difficult to get, because of the limited distribution. What a surprise, highly recommendable.
