Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Blanche du Paradis – Witbier at 5% ABV

Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Blanche du Paradis Witbier at 5% ABV ($2.89 via Beer Club Offering #14, 341ml, bottle date 12-Nov-2014)

Pours hazy pale gold with a short, dense white head, excellent retention, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is wheat, light bananas and cloves, citrus peel, spices. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. (7/10) Light to medium body, low sustained carbonation, and a dry, mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

I’m tempted to say the shortcomings on this one are true to the traditional style, instead of accidental. Personally, though, I found the flavours and the carbonation to be on the low side, making this thing milder than it needed to be. Pleasant, without being all that memorable. (15/20)
