Beer Review, Witkap-Pater Abbey Singel Ale

Witkap-Pater Abbey Singel Ale
Ninove, Belgium
6.0% ABV

Appearance: Very aggressive out of the bottle, a little too aggressive. Slightly hazy whitish-yellow body with a very thick foamy white head that leaves significant lacing. Head is way too thick due to the aggression of the beer. 3.5/5

Smell: Sweet, with a clear Belgian "funk." Hints of banana. 4.0/5

Taste: Very yeasty, very tart, hints of citrus and a touch of cloves. Tasted a bit like a witbier, a very slight bit of oranges and coriander here. Interesting. 4.0/5

Mouthfeel: Moderate thickness, slightly chewy. Low carbonation, very low hops. 3.5/5

Drinkability: Not a bad Belgian Pale. I could see putting these away quite handily if I ever get to Belgium and this sort of thing is widely available. 4.0/5

Overall: 3.85/5
