Beer Review #8
Style: Belgian white Beer (Witbier)
Appearance: When the beer was poured into the glass it
created a good foamy two inches of head.
The beer itself remained fairly cloudy and the
color of apple cider, with lots of active bubbles.
Taste: Rickard's white smelled of peach and seemed very fruity in aroma.
The first taste defineltly had a taste of citrus, but was flat in the mouth
with not much action from the carbonation.
Mouthfeel: Upon closer examination the beer was very light and dry. Had a slight
hint of an trailing aftertaste. It didnt have a bitter bite to it and the
bubbles were soft on the tongue.
Beer Type: Witbier are meant to be Cloudy, pale, taste of orange and spice
flavors, with decent carbonation. I feel the carbonation was a little
lacking and didnt taste much of spice and lacked some clear
Drinkability: The Dry finish of this beer makes it a good one for a pub. Something
to have to help add to the flavor of something spicy or salty. It isn't
the best for this style of beer, but its a good starter for the category.
Scoring 15/25 Not the best beer in the world but not the worst for sure.
You could do a lot worse!
