Very cloudy pale yellow beer, big solid creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive. Smell is typical witbier. Aroma is orange, wheat and yeast, along with herbal and citric notes. Has a strong taste with medium sweetness and light lemony sourness. Quite fizzy and very refreshing. Light-bodied. Overall, a delicious wheat beer. Quite a classic.
This historic event is being marked with the special release of Cuvée 800.
Brewed in the Cistercian Abbaye du Val-Dieu, Cuvée 800 is a special blond ale rich in authentic taste, roundness and complexity and also offers a subtle touch of hops. » Pours clear blonde, good white head. Smell is citrussy, yeast. Taste is fresh, bitter, very malty, mild citrus notes ( yet very clearly citrussy ) ok yeastyness, the scent mkes you expect way worse. Pretty ok in general. Bit sweet at the start maybe ( canfy-like aspects, pretty sure they’re from the hops ) but nothing really unbalanced.
