Brasserie De L’Abbaye Des Rocs Blanche Des Honnelles (6%)

Now this is a rather spiffing Double Wit and no mistake.
The bottle opens with a gasp and a cereal rich spiced honey sigh.
There’s a great big pile of warm candy floss floating around this beer which gives a super rich and sticky sweetness that’s balanced beautifully by toasted brioche flake and toffee apple juiciness.
On top of all this there’s a bread dough yeast that’s plump and homely, along with a large helping of mixed peppercorns all cracked roughly and rolled in sherbet.
Honnelles’ hops are fistfuls of green herby leaves, cardamom and chard, as well as some crushed celery that gives a super crisp and slightly salty prickle before coming over all zesty and zippy with lemon rind and a nice bunch of flowers that gives this beer a soft and gentle but dry and lasting finish.
