exp 8/1/12

Sort of called New Okult No. 1

A: A sort of fluorescent urine color. Zero carbonation, zero head, opaque.
S: Clean dog (like a freshly washed dog), unsweet pineapple, citrus yeast.
T: Orange, dog (sometimes), tried the leave out the yeast and it's not bitter at all. Refreshing, good.
M: Light, but slight thickness, very slow carbonation and just a hair dry.
O: A nice, easy and fresh Wit.

Brown 33cl bottle, almost past its best before date when reviewed. Poured into a 'Corsendonk' stemmed tulip glass.

Opakue orange appearance with a white collar and wispy covering on top.

Orange bits are used in the brew, corriander too, I could smell the oranges, but not the corriander.

Different to any other Witbier (Hoegaarden, etc) I've had before, but interesting and well made. Sweeter rather than sour or bitter, had to remind myself I was drinking a beer and not some sort of non-alcoholic fruit cocktail. I found it very difficult to find the alcohol until the aftertaste, strange but in a good way. Really enjoyed the experience.

Poured into a Chimay chalice, this straw colored hazy beer was beautiful. Produced almost no head, and looked a little bit thick almost on the pour. Smell was sweet, fruity, with almost no hops evident. The taste was wonderful. Hints of pineapple and sweet floral notes, and quite a bit of sweet malt. This beer was thick in the mouth and quite drinkable. Overall, I really enjoyed this unique brew. A very unique and sessionable beer at only 5.4%.
