3.55/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 11.2 oz can, freshness date on the bottom.
Appearance: Thin stark white lacing with minimal stickage. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness showing some flaky particles of sediment.
Smell: Fresh squeezed lemon juice, bit of citric zest and a mélange of spicing where it is difficult to pick anything out other than some liquorice and citric peel.
Taste: Peculiar mouth feel as it feigns a medium body, semi crisp with a slick backend. Lots of lemon flavour with a plum fruitiness on the side, grainy with some malt sweetness and a wheat twang. Chalky yeast, citric peel and other obscure spicing abound. Finsihes with trace hop flavour and more earthy yeast.
Notes: I’d prefer this brew bottle-conditioned though the canned version is not bad at all and is a perfect switch if in a situation that restricts you to canned beverages only. All in all a decent white ale.

Wittekerke has a thick, white head, and a very cloudy, lemon-yellow appearance, with bubbles streams and lots of tan chunks floating about. A bit of lacing is left behind. The aroma is of pungent, bread and yeast, with a faint citrus and sweet back note. Taste is of the strong yeast, some mint or other odd herb, wheat bread, and lots of tap water. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Wittekerke finishes semi-dry, easy-drinking, and rather bland. It’s not too good, really.
