2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 Celis lives again. A decent Belgian-style white. Pale, yellow, cloudy, citrusy with a malty aftertaste. Somewhat unrefined, tastes simply sweet when other subtleties would really add to the beer's character. Perhaps tinkering with the hops a bit would do the trick. I really didn't taste any of the "spiciness" that other raters refer to. Still a good beer overall though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 02/11/15. Served roughly 45 degrees. Hazy pale yellow pour with white foamy head that fades. The aroma has all of the Witbier esters I would hope for including mellow toasted malts, crackers, light spice, orange peel, and wheat. Light body. The taste has the same toasty and mellow herbal quality with a slightly bitter finale. They did this one right.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOD 12/23/14. Pours a cloudy gold. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Outstanding classic Belgian nose of clove, banana, hint of hops, light biscuit and Belgian yeast. As it warms, lemon notes emerge.
Light medium body with a bit of silkiness to the smooth texture. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish.
The flavor profile is very good. Intensity is reasonable, as is balance. The shortcoming is complexity whereas the flavors don’t separate well and come across in a blended, somewhat muted, fashion. Clove is the predominate flavor and the others from the nose are blended underneath. You really have to look for them. The finish is a mild slow fade of phenolic clove.

Draft at The Brass Tap-U Square, served in a flight. I’d seen this on the menu forever and needed to clear it out of my brainspace. It pours a totally clear pale bright gold with a finger of soft cream-colored head that laces the glass and lasts for a while. Notes of banana, wheat, coriander, citrus, doughy and cereal malts, hay, and light herbs. Light-bodied, with medium soft carbonatoin and a dry mouthfeel. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold/green color, cloudy, lacy.
Medium body, moderate flavor, smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation for the style, avg length, uninteresting finish.
Dry, moderate bitterness, low acidity, hint of sweetness in the finish.
Herbal, soapy, yeasty and bready.
Not my style, not fair for me to judge.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle listed as brewed in Stratford, CT. Pours a clear yellow color with white head. Spicy, yeasty, wheat, slight skunky aromas. Yeasty, spicy, zesty, a touch skunky flavors. I had this beer about 7 years ago and it was really great. This one is still pretty decent but a touch lacking and skunky. Not sure if that is because of maybe being contract brewed in Connecticut.
