Watou's Wit Beer
Witbier– 5% - 330ml Bottle – Best Before 10.2017

Appearance: Straw coloured, very hazy and pale with loads of carbonation rising throughout the whole beer to a beautiful whiter than white head which has the appearance of marshmallow from above.

Aroma: Nose has loads of Curaçao and, as expected, coriander in the background. I'm also getting the grassy wheat notes and some citrus and apple aromas.

Taste: Coriander, then some clove type aromas and a little bitterness then the orange and very dry finish..


Mouthfeel: Light in body but not watery with prickly carbonation. Dry and very refreshing.

Overall: Not a bad beer, very easy to drink although I do prefer the St. Bernardus wit beer over this one, it has a more yeast character, giving it a bit of extra depth. Personally I feel that this one is a little one sided and could do with being a little sweeter.

Watou Wit - Served from a bottle into a snifter.

Not really what I would call a Witbier but also not terrible.

A: Pours a one finger head of slight cream, fair thickness, but dissipates quickly

Smell: Immediate smell is pure honey. Sweet smelling with alcohol backing up the back end.

T: It tastes like honey lemon tea with a slight orange citrus finish. It's balanced but a little too bland for my liking. No bite at the end and pretty unassuming

Mf: Quite Smooth but a little watery for a witbier. It is not that refreshing which i think is pretty important for a witbier...in fact that is exactly what a witbier should be! Pretty disappointing really in terms of true to style.

Overall, it smells hugely of honey and citrus but is rather disappointing when it comes to flavour and end. Not, terrible but expected better. I will not be getting this one again.
