Vlaamsche Zotten Witbier


Sint-Jozef Brewery was founded by the Vissers family, no exact date. Thomas Vissers, who died in 1807, was a native of the Den Bosch area in the Netherlands. Johannes, son of Thomas, had a daughter that married Jozef Cornelissen. One of their sons, Jaak, continued the brewery business.

The current manager Jef Cornelissen, grandson of Jaak, has been in charge of the Sint-Jozef Brewery since 1980. The brewery machinery have been updated in the 1980’s and in 1995 and now have brew capacity of 9 times 50000 litres.

I bought this unfiltered witbeer from Systembolaget in Kristianstad, Sweden at the price of 3 Euro for a 330ml bottle at 5%.

Light yellow to white in colour and just slightly unfiltered haziness.

Fine foam on the top of this medium sized head.

Sweet fruit and light hops in the aroma.

Low CO2, sweet fruit, more fruit and a long sweetness in the after taste.

Overall rating 78 / 100
