Brunehaut has some interesting gluten free beers, so I decided to try their witbier. I did not really have any expectations, I’ve had some gluten free beers, and most of them have not been anything special. However, I decided to try this one with an open mind, as I usually do with any beer. Belgian wit is not one of my specialities, but it is a clear cut style, therefore easy to rate.
Appearance. Cloudy, light honey-toffee-yellow coloured, a bit darker than wit beers usually are, not so dense of a head, but a nice head, which disappears quickly. 3 stars
Aroma. Quite neutral, yeasty, low malty sweetness, fruity. 3 stars
Taste. Too neutral, hard to find notes of anything. Low grain-flavour, lactic. Yeasty aftertaste. 2,5 stars
Mouthfeel. Light body, carbonated, light acidity. 2,75 stars
Overall. Overall neutral impression. Easy to drink, good as a cold beer on a hot summer day. Not a memorable beer. Refreshing – definitely, tasty – not so much. 2,75 stars
Extra. Great to see more and more organic beers, highly appreciated! I love the magpie on the label!
Final rating 2,75 stars.
