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.

This beer does not smell great. It may be the same glass that i keep recycling. some sourness and candy sugar. Flavor, however, is pretty nice. Way more intense than any belgian white. Itís sweet like gummy bears.

Poured gently = golden and hazy with no foam. Aroma is yeast and citrus (orange?). Taste is also yeast and citrus fruits. I was told it was supposed to taste of coreander, but I couldnít sense it. Maybe it was just me. However the palate is very refreshing. The brew reminds me of finish sima.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2006
Hazy yellow coloured, some light carbonation and an average white head. Some herby and spicy aroma, hints of citrus, coriander. Medium body with a light yeasty-bitter finish at the end. This isnít really my kind of white, but its not bad.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
The name is big, it poured pretty (golden hazy color with beautiful carbonation rising up my weizen glass to a half centimeter head on top). The aroma was nice and spicey with a significant floral presence. The flavor was a tad weak with a musty wheat taste and citrus, coriander, florals coming through at the end.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2006
A spicy, biting wit with lots of zing. Some coriander and clove. Yeasty. Very respectable for the style. Not diluted at all.

Quinten (1049) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2006
full misty one amber color, medium head, pure yeasty, much hefe, citrus, bread, basement aromas, very good one with a extremely fine complete balance. Next favorite one.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 26, 2006
In the 330 mL bottle. Pours the color of creekwater when you scoop up too much mud while tryiní to catch a crawdad. The white head is big, but subsides quickly. The aroma is what is simply amazing: caramel apples! It is a bit spicey- pepper, nutmeg, cloves. The body is medium, maybe even a bit light for a St. Bernie. Has a good hop bitterness top hold it all together. Smooth and quick finish. It is easy to drink lots of this very rapidly. Itís like drinking a caramel-apple pie.

MrBunn (2516) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2006
Kind of scuzzy looking light straw color with a minimal head. Aromas are nice... grass, some citrus, banana and light spices. Flavors of coriander and clove dominate a typical wheat beer underbelly. Really nice!

jefcon (1434) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Draft. Heavy and dense-looking in the glass. Lots of aromas of wheat, banana and clove, some yeasty must. Flavors are rich and smooth, as a witbier should be. Lots of fruit and hay, balanced by a grainy, wheaty malt. Plenty of substance. Typical of the style.

EithCubes (5103) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Bottled. Cloudy yellow with middling white head. Very aromatic, lemon, coriander and other spices, wheat, yeast. Smellís very attractive. Spices and coriander come out ahead of the citrus in the taste. Orange peel taste comes in the sides of the mouth and if I really squeeze the liquid against my tongue. Smooth moutfeel with strong tart. Tingly tongue syndrome, squeezing probably didnít help. Somehwhat bitter end, dry but not overly so, warming but not alcoholic. Nice one.
