2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale color, small white head. Very strong yeast aromas with some clove and fruit. Very creamy body, but lacking in flavor and finish, it just ends with no real resolution.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Hazy pale yellow in colour. Minor white head, lacings. It has a strong yeasty aroma with a yeasty flavour as well. The after taste is dry and, I’m sad to say, dishwater like.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. The aroma is heavy on the coriander which hits first. After you get used to that some sharp citrus creeps in as well as a spritzy sweet-tart aspect. Medium / light body with a little bit of sharp carbonation. Taste starts with some sourness and smooth wheat then along comes some creamy orange. The finish brings out coriander in a blast, then sourness comes back and the smoothness of wheat as well. This is a good wit, but I expected much more from St. Bernardus.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botle. hazzy orange yellow color with thin head and sediment. Yeast, orange and lemon aroma. Taste of wheat, fruity and citrus with orange zest. Carbonation is ok and its a very nice witbeer.
Bière d’une couleur jaune orange trouble avec des sédiments et un mince collet blanc. Odeur de levure, d’orange et de citron. Au goût, elle est fruité avec une toyche d’agrumes et de zeste d’orange. Elle est également rafraichissante et elle est très bien réussis. Une de mes préférées en matière de bière blanche.

Bottle (330ml). Shared with biegaman, my bottle. Murky light orange, small white head. Sweet thick yeasty aroma of apple, pear and peach, yummy. Tastes similary, a little medium sweet white wine character, no linger at all - but pleasant, sweet and fruity. Very, very thin body, not much carbonation, no linger at all - a pleasing wil’o the wisp of a beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Hazy yellow-gold with a small pillowy head. Aroma of yeast with very nice lemon notes. Mouthfeel is soft and full. Flavour - well, the influence of Mr. Celis is definately there, but it also has lots of Trappist-style character as well. It’s soft and fruit, with hints of lemon and apricot, and a full, yeasty finish. Not as refreshing or crisp as other wits, but still a very tasty and unique brew, well suited for mild autumn weather.
