COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional witbier has been developed under supervision of the father of Hoegaarden and Celis White, master brewer Pierre Celis. This beer has been bottle-refermented, which lent it its specific taste.

Very nice witte poured into a rochefort chalice. Appearance is a cloudy yellow straw with some carbonation and a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is lemon peel with bread and cereal overtones. The taste is somewhat zesty and tart. Lemon peel and yeast in the forefront with the traditional wheat in the background. Definitely a slightly bitter finish but it’s actually very nice and bubbly with the carbonation on the tongue. Overall, a very good wheat beer.

Troebel blond bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: overvloedig koriander, wat sinaasappel en een pepertje. Smaak: citrus en een bittertje. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: citrus. Ik ben niet zo ’n fan van witbier, maar deze is ok.

Beardbeerman (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle from Marc, thanks man. Pours a hazy straw topped by a coarse off-white head showing average retention, but lacing properties. Highly carbonated brew. The nose is fruity, doughy. Fresh white bread, hint of citrus, some peppercorn and a strong vegetal backbone. The taste is bready with citrus notes and that same vegetal backbone. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice little tartness. Good, light and refreshing. Cheers!

This is a solid fruity wit. The coriander gets a bit vegetal but that is my only complaint. It’s lightly tart, zesty and creamy with a nice orange night. Very refreshing and makes you burp a lot.

Classic wit appearance. Light creamy body. Wheat. Light on the spice. Light citrus. A touch of funk. Quality. Could enjoy a few of these.

Scrumpy369 (265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy yellow colour with small fast disappearing white head. Nose is funky, no wheaty notes. Taste is cilantro with slight bitternes. Toonlow carbonation. Medicore.

Goodgrief (1965) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Cloudy yellow pour with small head. Lemony aroma with bread. Grainy wheat flavor, some candy flavor. Mild pepper spice. Really carbonated. Just ok.

ShivanDragon (3015) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016
Schenkt iets wazig bleek geel/gouden met beperkte volle kraag. Aroma van citrus, schoonmaakmiddel bleek zoals in een zwembad, en geloof me ik zit momenteel niet in of bij een bad. Smaken zijn vrij dun, wat citrus frisheid, mouten, zeer vlak en flets op de citrus na dan, zelfs vrij weinig gist. Zwakke body, dun van textuur lage co2. Mwhoa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

En la decantación desarrolla una abundante espuma blanca, aireada y algo efímera, que termina por formar una delgada lámina de color blanco lechoso. La cerveza es turbia de color acerado ambarino. Carbónico de burbuja muy pequeña y desprendimiento regular y lento. Nariz muy fragante. Aparecen olores de cítricos como piel de naranja y pomelo, en primer término, y cereal crudo detrás. La boca es muy cremosa. El carbónico finísimo desarrolla una patina cosquilleante sobre la lengua. Fresca, de paso fácil, cuerpo leve y final corto, con recuerdos ácidos y amargos ligeros. Los aromas en boca son los de la nariz más algún matiz especiado. Se trata de una cerveza de abadía con algo de la acidez característica de las de trigo, con una nariz intensa y una boca leve pero equilibrada.
