2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy yellow color with a white head. The taste is yeasty and rather thin. Has some spicy and some citrusy flavours.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent, swirling retention with just a hint of ink-blot lacing. The aroma is spicy and fruity with notes of lemon, soap and straw. The well-balanced flavor is a little too thin for my taste, but very lemony, pleasant and refreshing. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As Celis White
Citrus-melon aroma, hoppy and spicy, and with a bit of honey. Some acidic tang, though - vinegary. Cloudy yellow-amber with small white lacing head. Medium-light body with soft carbonation. Starts acidic, citrusy, with hoppy tang. Papery stale hops, lemon finish. Light wheat, no sweetness. After is weak and watery, light spice. Not a great wit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice pale hazy yelow body with a dense level white head. The aroma is very lemony with just a hint of sweetness. The flavor is also very lemony with the sweetness a bit more noticeable. Very nice palate, medium-light, crisp, and very refreshing. A nice Wit. Thanks CaptainCougar!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy medium yellow hue with average fizzy white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of coriander, clove, white pepper, orange zest, curaçao, peach, dusty yeast, and wheat. The taste starts twangy and citric with some bitterness found throughout. The finish displays a slight sour note and a lot of spice. A lively and crisp mouthfeel, thin as normal for the style. This beer is not the equal to Hoegaarden or for that matter the American made Celis White. It is missing some depth and complexity, just spices and fruit. Okay to try once.

AKA Celis White. Pale golden, unclear, white weak head. Fruitfull flavour with yeast. Some spices (Coriander, curraway seeds?) Somehat peppery. A sour finish. Soft palate. Overall an ordinary belgian style wheat bear. Nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Celis white: Hazy light yellow. Nice mixture of sweet, spice and citrus made for a very refreshing belgian wit. Just didn’t live up to my Celis-expectations.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy yellow pour with decent sized head and nice lacing. Orange and coriander aromas. Light peppery spiciness to it with a nice wheat taste. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice pale white creamy head and a hazy yellow body. Nose of hops and citrus. Taste of wheat and citrus and a good sour aftertaste. Close to Hoegaarden, just a little more fresh and sour.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2004 One of the best wit beers, especially on tap, but also from the bottle. This has a lilting, complex flavour with distinct toffee notes, and subtle citrus. Soft on the tongue with a long, chalky finish and gentle effervescence. V. nice.
