Kobushi Hana Belgian White Aroma and Taste

Unlike the rest of the Kobushi Hana range, Kobushi Hana Belgian White comes with a cutesy label on the front, which took me aback at first as I didn’t recognise who made this beer. Upon opening, it had a light golden straw colour and large frothy white head on top that lingered throughout drinking. There was pleasant aroma of light biscuit malts, orange, and a subtle coriander and yeast hint to it.

The body to Kobushi Hana Belgian White was quite dry, with some of the biscuit malts coming through initially before a muted citrus orange and coriander floated through. It wasn’t the strongest of witbiers, but the flavours were distinct. Kobushi Hana Belgian White didn’t evolve past these flavours before leaving a slight yeasty twang in the aftertaste.

Kobushi Hana Belgian White The Bottom Line

Kobushi Hana Belgian White is a nice easy drinking witbier and perfect if you’re looking for a solid example of the style
