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.

Poured a very hazy pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma was yeasty with notes of spice, lemon and banana. The flavor was acidic with banana and spices. Dry spiced finish.

Pours hazy pale golden with a fully receding, foamy off-white head. Aroma of banana, orange peel, light acidic lemon. Taste is yeasty, lightly sweet wheat, and quite fruity esters. Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied with lively Belgian carbonation. Quite good.

Very good white, flowery arome, some citrus and wheat, very refreshing, poor bitterness. Just a bit expensive.

Draft at Zeno’s. Good aroma with no strong notes, crisp. Keeps a good thin head. Flavor is good. As it warms it gets better. Very smooth and enjoyable. Cheers!

thornecb (4636) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Best before 18 03 09. Pours a hazy light brown into a tumbler. White micro head with excellent staying power. Lemon and sour grass notes. Frothy with upfront sweet malt and a dry sour lemon finish. Almost de Dolle-like.

presario (4748) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle from Johns Market. Best before 09 2007. Pale cloudy banana coloured with a half inch frothy head. A few interesting floaties. Musty lemon and banana aroma. Strong banana cream flavour. A certain amount of zest and freshness. A trace of lemon. I don’t notice the spiciness that others mention but the bottle did seem to dry out my tongue.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Big frothy white head, beautiful lace over a cloudy yellow/gold pour. Slight bready yeast aroma, some hay, and just the faintest citrus. Lively, but not overwhelming, carboantion that lightens a firm malt base. Very satisfying feel for a beer that is so light and crisp. Finishes with a mild bitterness that is more noticeable than the competing faint sour notes. Very refreshing, and one of the better witbiers that I’ve had, although this style is certainly not my forte.

Dedollewaitor (14205) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
hazy yellow with white head. Sweet aroma of citrus fruits & wheat. Medium carbonated. This is a weissbeer that have some punch in form of large amount of wheat & spices. Great!

diabel (1614) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle Hazy, blond to orange body. Large, white, frothy head. Sweet aroma of hops: orange (peels), citrus, grass, ... Lightly bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Nice complexity of spices.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Pours lemony yellow w/ a shallow, arctic white froth. Aromas of stone fruit. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are fruity w/ peach, apples, banana, and spice w/ a nice bittring on the finish. Not as sour as some other witbiers. Overall: refined, delicate, and well balanced. Highly recommended.
