4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle into a nonic.
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a huge three finger billowy white head. The fluffy head sticky around for a long time and leaves huge clumps of lacing on the sides of the glass. This is what a wit should look like. Picture perfect.
The aroma just jumps out of the glass with lemon and coriander dominating. There are more subtle hints of clove, banana, and orange. There is a real sharpness to the aroma that I love.
The flavor brings forth tons of coriander and more orange than was present in the aroma. Fresh baked bread along with lemon provide support along with a delicate tartness on the tip of the tongue. Perfect soft wheat character along with abundant carbonation that is perfect for the style.
Overall, this is what every witbier should strive to be like. To me, this is the absolute defining beer of the style and by far the best wit I have ever had. I only wish I could get this close to where I live because I would go through cases during the summer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy (and dare I say, like Hoegaarden), good, long lasting, white head. Aroma is floral, hint of clove. Taste is light citrus fruit, wheat, cream, and that bit of clove again. Solid wheat beer, good on a hot day.

Bottle. Pours a very hazy pale yellow color with a fairly thick white head on it. Nose has a slight bit of citrus in there with quite a bit of the wheat flavor coming through. Taste is slightly sour and feels bubbly. Lots of citrus coming through. Easy drink, though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Although the complex and great aroma might draw one to a great flavour, the truth is that it doesn’t. Quite flavorless for the aroma and looks. But a good refreshing beer.

Subdued across the board. Seems like they were trying to recreate rather than create.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big, but quite fast dissapearing white head. Aroma is wheaty, sweet fruity. Flavour is spicy, fruity, wheaty, (could feel this after it was a little warmer) sweet and the begining then in the end it’s a bit dry and a small hint of bitterness

sicuramente la migliore wit beer mai assaggiata..non ne ho assaggiate moltissime è vero però questa è veramente speciale (come mi aspettavo da san bernardus del resto)..bellissimo colore pallido/biondo e schiuma fine e vellutata..profumatissima,si avverte l’aspro del coriandolo nel naso..in bocca sprigiona frutta,banana,finale amaro e secco..veramente buona
