3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This Belgian Wheat pours a cloudy light yellow with a brilliant white foamy head. Hoppy citrus aromas with cheesey yeast notes. Slight wine scent with a small amount of alcohol. Very round body, smooth with a slight carbonation. Flavours of dough, vanilla and ginger to finish. The palate is very smooth almost to the point of watery but it leaves behind a flavour of yeast and vanilla. Very smooth!

This was the first time that I had this beer from the tap, and it was certainly an improvement on the bottled. Very tight white head, over a pale yellow cloudy beer. Aroma of wheat and a citrus-like tang, both of which were evident in the taste also. Seemed a little thin on the palate, but a very enjoyable, easy drinking beer.

bottled on tap: this is your classic witbier and probably the most popular in the style. i love the look almost white yellow with a thin head, i also like it in the hoegaarden tumbler that it is appropriately served in. like a thin hefeweizen or weissebiere. but more watered down and liter. crisp and snappy. great for hot summer days. easy to drink. me likes..

Presume it was this that brought my former boss in contact w/ Pierre Celis. As if you care. But you wouldn't care about my rating either, would you? This was a real learning experience fro me way back when. Thems was the days before Celis was brewing in Austin. And now they are no longer. And this beer lives on. And I still praise Pierre.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Light, cloudy yellow beer with a very white head. Fruity, slightly smoked aroma, some spice, some lemon. Sweet and easy-to-drink with a hint of tartness.

Damn, I didn't read the instructions on the back of the bottle that state you should swish the last bit around before adding it to the glass.
Pours a very hazy straw color with a very nice head and some lacing.
Scent it typical Wit. Taste is as well; bananas and spices. Mouthfeel is very weak, though, and almost watery. Overall this is okay and nothing special.

Lovely Belgian Witbier. Almost colourless and very cloudy, but a very comprehensive body. The best wheat beer I have ever tasted.

Rare appearence but so caractersistic tasting, a has a great acid flavour but on the other hand has a sweet end if you drink it icy. Great beer, but not to drink it so often beacuse is easy to bore
