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.

Bottom line is these guys know beer. They can make a rather so-so style good. Well to the beer....A cloudy yellow appearance with a lemony aroma. The flavor is rather light and creamy with some vanilla, lemons, apricot, and spice present. Some herbal notes are present. Overall a great beer and a perfect "lawnmower beer" perhaps if you are doing some yard work on the monistary.

chriso (7352) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Beer #16 at Croydon Draught Belgian Beer Festival. Hazy straw colour. Warming, fruity aroma. Quite spicy. The expected coriander spicing and citric lemon in the flavour. Crisp and refreshing. Nothing outstanding, but very pleasant.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Appearance: absolutely hazed, faint yellow, slim white head. Aroma: spice hits first, then soft fruit, pear and citrus, orange, pineapple?, lemon... Taste: exceptionally smooth, exquisitely soft, a definite joy in the mouth. Coriander taste is consistent throughout and dominates the more delicately played fruit component. Light and utterly downable, yet with significan yeast in the texture to secure it as medium bodied, and so flavorful, it causes one to pause and luxuriate in it’s splendor. A brilliant summertime brew, and would be a great dinner beer, as well...you could toss back a pitcher of it, washing down hot, hearty food! An exceptional wit!

Draught: Cloudy yellow with a white head. Lemon and spice along with yeasty bread in the aroma. Sweet lemon refreshing flavour. Nice.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 1, 2005
Yellow, very cloudy, thin to medium white head. Lemon dominates the aroma. Taste is citric, yeasty (horse blanket), with hops in the finish. Mild bitterness. Phenols are present too, but not so heavily like in a Orval. Medium bodied. Balanced, refreshing, interesting even if not oustanding.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2005
this is a different kind of witbier for me. doesn’t look so nice: no head at all, murky yellow beer. aroma: citrus, wheat, yeasty. taste: pineapple, citrus, bit barnyard(straw, grassy), yeast and a nice hopbitter. finish: a bit thin but nice bitterish "deep" tone, not really refreshing. strange but nice.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Very delicate aroma. No real spice to speak of, but there is some orange peal. Appearance is that of you typical wit. Very murky yellow/orange, color of peach nectar. Frothy white head. The flavor is subtle all around. Some phenolics. Nothing stands out. Doughy over the tounge. CO2 is light for style. Very quenching.

Choos (601) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2005
Aroma: pineapple, grainy and a touch of funkiness. Appearance: cloudy yellow/brown (almost like pear juice) with a small head. Sudsy lacing. Flavour: sweet pineapple, tough of hoppiness some wheaty malt a little barnyardy. Palate: heavily carbonated (makes it spikey) but thin to medium mothfeel. Drinks clean.

joergen (20714) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
Bottled. Hazy yellow coloured with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander and cloves. Sweer citrus flavour with notes of coriander and cloves. Slightly bitter finish. A bit too spicy for my liking.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2005
My find of the day at Peace St. Market, Raleigh. Hazy dark straw pour with fizzy head and aromas of big citrus, spices, some cinnamon and almonds. Solid palate with good complexity and balance. Very good, but there are better wits out there.
