This was a little unexpected gem.
It pours a milky cream colour with a snow white head and has a nose like ripe blackberry and cherries with a hint of yeast and hop. This leads to the expectation of a sweet palate and the surprise is... You're wrong and so was I!!!
It has some very dry fruit flavours with this crisp acidity and slight chalkiness on the finish. This has the look of a witte beer.The nose is reminiscent of both a Belgian witte teamed with a weisse and a hint of a lambic and the palate is a combination of a witte with a hint of an I.P.A.
So in essence this is a beer brewed by Charlie in the Chocolate factory but fortunately there's no swelling or violet colour changing.
