fourth brew (Belgian witbier), part 8

Finally bottled this Belgian pig. Saved the last pint for sampling, and just don't like it very much. I do think that some of the more aggressive notes have mellowed, so perhaps that will continue during bottle conditioning, but I'm pretty convinced that it's just not that good. My final forlorn hopes are that:
  • the priming sugar is interfering with this tasting
  • bottle conditioning will deliver great improvements
  • carbonation is key to the success of the style
Time will tell. Stinkin' swine. I'm imagining all kinds of bottle labels.
