3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 Buttery yoghurtaroma. Yoghurt and fresh cheese flavors, with grapes and citrus. A clear rancid butter flavor. What has gone wrong with this beer? TRe-rate, tap Café De Nieuwe Roos Ootmarsum: Grape juice and coreander aroma and flavor. Fairly dry and fruity, with just a bit of citrus. Rather herbal and thin. (6 3 7 3 12 = 3.1)
Bottle, bought as Witte van Steenberge> Butter and traubenzucker in the aroma. Sweetish flavor with traubenzucker and citrus. Rather thin. Butter in the aftertaste. Decent, nothing more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2004 Refreshing sour (in a possitive way sour), little citrus-like. I guess this is the most refreshing beer I had this summer.
Rerate. Spicy, wheaty and more citrus aroma. Taste is refreshing, mostly citrus soem spices and wheat.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Beautiful pale cloudy colour and nice white head. Extremely odd aroma of sour yoghurt!! Maybe I got a bad bottle?!? Flavour is very sourish too.
Rerate: Terrible acidic aroma of buttermilk! Flavour is very refreshing and delicately spiced (cloves). Still, I would prefer less acidity and more fruitiness. Second rerate: The beer is a lot more refreshing and enjoyable on tap.

A great head tops the dizzy beer. The aroma is spicy, with banana and citrus notes. The flavour is a bit overwhelming and one of them is enogh. Its citrus and banana dominate the taste, but notes of other spices as well.

I guess this is the same as the normal Celis White, only then brewed in Belgium. Still this is one of my favorite belgian whites, with its fresh taste of citrus and koriander. Bit more sour, what makes it certainly better than the Hoegaarden White.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks and aroma are as they should be. The palate struck me as a little weak compared to a Hoegaarden and there was a bit too much spice/coriander in it for my taste.

White beer is hard enough to find around here. When I had the chance to taste the Belgian Celis (I dearly miss the Austin, TX version), I jumped at it. It didn’t disappoint me. Still a great white beer.
