So this was my last beer and was fairly cheap compared to the rest. Coming from an unknown brewery for me as well.
Wittekerke: 5%abv Cold?
It is a Witebier, or wheat, in theory. Having been poured from the tap into a beer flute type of glass, feminine? I was able to discern that it had the color and look of pineapple juice. Ok so there is a fair amount of thick, foamy head on this beer. No real nose to it what so ever, maybe a slight maltiness? Like I said the color/consistency of the beer is that of thick fruit juice. As far as flavor goes, I think they forgot to add some. Really, for a wheat-styled beer I was expecting at least a refreshing sweetness to it-there was none. I was shocked at this, look at the picture, it seems rich in color and body. I guess brewing a beer around 5% forces you to hold back something. Having looked at the massive list of beers Brouwerij Bavik has; there are 22, I guess they can’t all be gems. And this one is by far the ‘rough’ that diamonds are sometime found in. For a refreshing mid-afternoon drink I might prefer a lemonade to this, may be harsh but at least that would be refreshing.
Tomorrow: Back to regular programming, my liver was done after this one on Sunday so now we get back into the swing of things. I know I promised a post on the festival weekend, I am trying to finalize some information for you, thanks for your patience. Happy drinking.
