Bière du Comté La Blanche Bio du Mercantour

Brewery: Brasserie du Comté
Country: France
ABV: 5%
Style: Belgian Witbier

Brewer Description: (from website) (in French) Bière blanche de fermentation haute. La Blanche du Mercantour est une bière fruitée et épicée qui pétille avec élégance. Ses notes d’agrumes et sa pointe d’amertume surprenante lui procurent un caractère rafraîchissant. Elle peut s’accompagner d’une rondelle de citron qui fera ressortir son côté fruité. Un dépôt de levure riche en vitamines et gage de qualité se forme naturellement dans la bouteille.

Intro: A 750ml bottle with a best before date sometime in 2017 (I forgot to record the exact date), and poured into an old fashioned glass.
Appearance: It poured a cloudy straw yellow colour with a one finger white head with decent retention and some lacing.
Aroma: Lemon, wheat, zestiness and pepper spice.
Taste: Lemon, lemon zest, breadiness with a hint of orange and coriander. There was also some booziness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with light to moderate carbonation.
Overall: Again like the Ambree, I was getting some booze on the finish which was not ideal.
