Share This Review

Wittekerke is a Belgian Witbier brewed by De Brabandere, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a wheat beer glass from a bottle.

Appearance

Pours a cloudy straw with an inch-thick head of dense white foam that reduces slowly. A soapy ring gathers at the collar of the glass.

Aroma

A pleasant aroma yields a scent of wheat bread, citrus and a hint of spice.

Flavor

The palate is initially bland but becomes more flavorful as the beer warms. Citrus and yeast mesh atop a honey-sweet wheat base; spiced with coriander and pepper. Finishes with a mild taste of lemon and sourdough.

Mouthfeel

Appropriate for the style, this Belgian wit is smooth and creamy with a medium-light body and ample carbonation.

Overall

While its use of flavor is subtle, the Wittekerke is quite refreshing and easy to tilt back.
