The Craft BeerAdvent Calendar 2014 Day #18

Jeune Gueule Weïti – Brasserie Guyanaise, 5.0% ABV – 330ml., (Matoury, French Guiana)

  • Style: Witbier
  • Taste: Bubbly sour orange sweet wheat malt mild roughness
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no

Visual: Pours cloudy orange with lots of suspended sediment, a HUGE massive lasting foamy head, torrents of fast streams everywhere – visually impeccable.

Nose: lemon-orange citrus, mild barnyard funk sourness (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: fizzy-crisp, bubbly-fullness

Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) sweet barley malt, orange citrus overtones, tangy wheat malt

Finish: burpy, ginger dryness, wheat malt palate roughness.

Summary: Beautifully visually, good bubbly texture for easy-drinking, decent flavour but not a whole lot of carry at the finish.
