Witterkerke wit bier


Adolphe De Brabandere submitted a application to start a brewery in the town of Bavikhove, Belgium in 1894. One of his sons, Joseph De Brabandere made the first brew the same year. Joseph died in 1929 at the age of 54. Josephs son Albert took over the brewery. Albert had two sons, Ignace and Vincent that helped with the family business, Vincent died in 1986 at the age of 32. Ignace was the only one left of the third generation. Today the brewery is ran by the fourth generation and remain a family owned brewery.

I bought this beer at the wine shop H.J. Hansen in Odense, Denmark at the price of 3 Euro for a 250 ml bottle at 5%

Light yellow in the colour and with a good unfiltered look.

Medium head of white fine bubbles, circa 10 mm stay on top of the beer for the drink.

Sweet and flowery aroma with a little fruit to it.

God CO2, light sweet fruit in the taste with a freshness. The taste is little too thin and it can off with a weird artificial after taste of the citrus.

Overall rating 73 / 100
