A nice, creamy foam in a glass. Smoky notes in the nose, a little milk chocolate on the palate, fruity aromas of banana on the tongue. Perfect in this unstable weather. A good middle ground has been found here. Not too smoky, not too sweet, not too heavy.
In 1567 the brewing of “white beer” was banned by Duke Albrecht V, son of William IV, as “fraudulent brewing” because too much wheat was used for this and it was a “useless drink that neither leads nor feeds, nor gives strength and power, but only encourages drinking”.
