Kronenbourg (Carlsberg) 1664 Blanc Fruits Rouge – Witbier at 4.5% ABV

Kronenbourg (Carlsberg) 1664 Blanc Fruits Rouge Witbier at 4.5% ABV (C$2.25 at NLC Stavanger, 330 ml, best before 1-Nov-2018, acquired 23-Aug-2018, reviewed 23-Aug-2018)

Appearance: hazy pinkish peach with one finger of creamy white head , good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: raspberry, red berries, wheat, citrus. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter, light tart. (6/10) Palate: moderate-light slightly creamy body, moderate carbonation, off-dry short finish. (3/5)

I only bought it for the Missus, because she likes the standard Blanc, and had very little in the way of expectations – but it could be worse. I mean, yeah, it’s Carlsberg, and the fruit character definitely seems more like purée than anything else, but on the up side, it’s not overly sweet, and it is refreshing. Good one for a hot day. (13/20)
