Bavik "Wittekerke"
Brouwerij Bavik - Harelbeke, Belgium
Belgian White Beer (ABV 5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]


Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a pale straw yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that was mostly diminishing, leaving behind a thin film with a small collar thus producing fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt and a moldy Belgian yeast with notes of banana, citrus (lemon), wheat and coriander.

The taste was very lightly sweet with a strong wheat presence and a touch of banana from the start and possessed a slight citrus note and a bit of spice towards the end. The flavor was short lived with a mild citrusy wheat finish.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mellow carbonation.

Overall this is a pretty basic Witbier. Tasty, refreshing and very drinkable, which along with the somewhat low ABV makes it the perfect brew for a hot summer’s day...
