I wasn't really sure where to put this review. The label mentions a "fromages en fetes" company in the French town of Manosque, but I couldn't find any information about this company online. This beer is supposed to be "Savoyarde", from a region in the Alps, but Manosque is not located in this region. Then I found a website that said this beer was brewed by Van Steenberge. So here I put it.
La Poudreuse refers to the "powdery" snow. Poudre=powder. They really want this beer to sound like it comes from the mountains, even if it apparently doesn't. The flag of Savoie is on the label too.

The head is nicely silky and lasting on a hazy pale yellow color body. The smell is very enjoyable; it reminded me of a well baked plum pie and also of a sour cream cake. Sweet and slightly caramelized plums. The taste shows the same notes as the smell, but the accent seems to be on the sour cream with a far more acid aspect that's refreshing but a bit too pronounced in my opinion. Hints of burnt caramel appear. Nice spicy notes add to this beer's complexity, maybe light hints of cinammon and liquorice. The mouthfeel is very good for a witbier, very creamy, enjoyably smooth, without being too light or watery.
