3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2004 Tap, Hazy lemon yellow, good lasting white head and moderate condition. Lemon-grapefruit citrus aromas with a spicy corriander note and a touch of honey. Thin in the mouth with more honey and citrus and a slight metallic twang. Finish is spicy and citric with a chalky dry mouthfeel.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
No haziness (=bad). Looks like an American Light. Straw colored. Bubblegum, yeasty aroma. Sweet. Suggests beer might make a come back from poor aesthetics. Fair amount of carbonation. Quickly diminishing head. Boring palate. No sweetness. Overall a very boring beer. Nor does it taste good.

At the Palace Hotel in Poperinge - Slight diacetly in aroma. A bit light in body, flavors not as full as they used to be.

Pale cloudy straw colour with a sweet vinegar aroma. Biscuits, vinegar, sugar and coconut milk make up the rather soft palate, not really interesting.

Wow, orange peel and apple aroma. Very refreshing with something new that works just fine. Light, slightly tart with soft flavour of banana. Yeasty, very delicious beer. Gentle and skillfully crafted.

A wonderful wit with a little twist - pungeancy. Colour is straw coloured and turbid with a thick white head. Corriander notes in the nose and I think sweet orange peels. Lightly hopped and somewhat tart and thirst quenching. Some vanilla notes. Ironically, this Celis is brewed by Hoegaarden in Belgium.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A cloud of perfect foam resting on a lovely frosted grey yellow expanse. Beautiful flavor - strong coriander, orange, tangy and spicy. Subtle yet with strength. A truly fine beer. Highly recommended!

RBSG2003. Wow, I liked this! Super orangey -- peel, fruit and all -- in aroma and somewhat in flavor. A lot of coriander, no pepper, a bit salty (!), delicious! Very light yellow.

Cloudy and very lightly yellow. Little head. Very citrusy, almost like sprite and oj. Very refreshing though. Thin.

One of the best Wits that I have ever had, although I'm not big on white beer fan in general. I poured it ice cold, and I think that in this case, that is the best way to serve it.
