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.

Courtesy of Crizay <P> Aroma holds a lot of spice, coriander and orange peel. Slightly musty notes as well. Yellow body with a lazy white head. Yeast, clove, coriander and orange peel. Fairly tasty, but thinnish.

From the bottle.

Pours light and cloudy with a limited head. Nice Belgian witbier aroma - lemon and cloves and a hint of grass. The flavor is relatively straightforward, extremely well balanced, and delightfully refreshing; the mouthfeel is if anything slightly undercarbonated. I’d like to try this head-to-head with Hoegaarden and see how they compare.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
This beer has an aroma of wheat, lemon, and butter. It is a sediment filled maple colored solution with a thin white head. This smooth moderate bodied beer has a taste of wheat and lemon/citrus. At the point of swallowing there is a tad bit of sour that creeps into the taste. It fades leaving a mild lemon/orange wheat taste in the throat.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Cloudy yellow colour with a nice but fast disappearing head. Nice aroma of wheat, coriander and orange. Also great flavour of wheat with very noteable of coriander and orange. This is a very good belgian wit, endeed.

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle: Poured a hazy white tinted golden ale with a small bubbly white head with just better then average retention. Aroma of coriander and wheat is quite dominant. Taste is also dominated by the wheat and coriander with an above average body. Very good for a style that often produce boring beers but definitely not the best from this brewery.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2006
Silvery, cloudy appearance with a thin head. There was some fruit in the aroma, as well as leather and yeast. Taste was citrus and spice with faint bitterness. Not my style, and probably for that reason by far my lowest rating for a St Bernardus product.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2006
A very sweet grapefruit aroma with a quickly forming/diminishing light white head. Cloudy gold for the color. Heavy sugar notes in the taste, good citrus typical of this type of beer. Another winner from St. Bernardus though not nearly as good as their Abt 12.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 22, 2006
From a 330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow with floaties. Small white head. Nose is almost sour, like a white table wine, with orange and lemon notes. Flavor is somewhat spicy, with muted ginger and coriander. Orange and lemon citrus flavors. Body is thicker than most witbiers.
