This Bertinchamps blanche is 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.
