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.

Nice citrus and coriander nose. Cloudy pale yellow with a big frothy white head and active carbonation. Mellow flavor, malt-heavy. Grassy with hints of lemon and orange peel. Strong palate, smooth with a dry finish that could have a bit more bite. A top notch wit.

Citrus and spice aroma with hints of vanilla. Pours a cloudy yellow/white. Lemony citrus with a great spice that mellows it out. so drinkable!

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Very cloudy. Not much head. Smells yummy. Taste is pretty good, not as easy to go down as other Sr Bernardus beers. Overall a decent brew.

Pours cloudy gold with a big white head. Strong aroma of bananas. Flavor of banana nut bread. Could be thicker and less bubbly, but a good offering.

Excellent wheaty aroma and looks right. Flavor is wheaty and light but refreshing. A good representation of the style from this great brewery.

malrubius (2317) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle in Hoegaarden glass. Pours beautiful cloudy, opaque orange with huge, dense white head that stands above the rim of the glass. Head lasts all the way with excellent lacing. Aroma is fresh orange and spice. Medium to light body. Refreshing flavor with, perhaps, a little too much spice and orange, but still delicious, if less quaffable than, say, Hoegaarden. Will gladly drink this again.

Cloudy straw color. Medium white head. Sweet aroma, somewhat perfumy. Citrusy flavor with a dry finish. Refreshing. Highly carbonated.
