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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy light yellow color with a large bubbly white head. Nose of mostly lemon zest and some bread. First it’s a bit sweet then it turns to dryness on the mouth. Light to medium body. I like it

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy light yellow, like I was expecting from a wit. Medium carbonation, light citrus notes, but quite bitter. Nice beer, but without the floral summer lightness that I like when it comes to wit beers.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The St Bernardus Wit is a very light, gently carbonated session beer with an extremely appealing citrus aroma. It is an excellent starter beer for a rich, complex, extravagant meal.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy yellow with translucent white head. Aromas are subdued, grassy, faint citrus notes. Pronounced sourness, quite dry, a decent amount of body but still easy to drink. Not as fruity as I was expecting, quite tasty but not as much going on as I wanted.
