If I’m honest, witbiers aren’t really my thing.  But I know a lot of our members enjoy a witbier.  So hopefully both witbier fans and those that aren’t normally so can find some joy in this offering from La Debauche.

Traditionally, witbiers are light and crisp; perfect as an aperitif.  A clean malt body with a good carbonation making the beer dance you’re your tastebuds.  Strongly flavoured with coriander and orange zest, sometimes it is these flavours which put people off the style.

La Debauche don’t really do traditional though, so this beer has also been ‘hopped’ with a strong dose of jasmine.  The notes say 5% jasmine, but I don’t really know what that percentage is quantifying!

Either way, the jasmine brings an extra floral note to the beer.  The first couple of sips are actually quite strong, but it settles down to become something I quite enjoyed.
