Foret Blanche – Brasserie DuPont

5.5% ABV
Purchased at Taylor’s Market ($12.99/25.4 oz. bottle) and poured into pint glasses.

His Notes:

In honor of Belgian Independence Day today, we sampled this Belgian Witbier from Leuze-en-Hainaut-based Brasserie Dupont, the same brewery that produces Moinette Blonde.  Foret Blanche pours an extremely pale gold with a champagne-style white head and a spring-summery nose of lemon zest, apricot, and various grasses.  The fresh, lemony flavor is thirst-quenching but not mouth-coating, with a clean finish and a dewy mouthfeel.  There are some tasty but unimposing citrus and tropical notes throughout, making this a perfect brunch beer in place of a peach mimosa, or a lawnmower beer in lieu of a lemon shandy.
