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.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy lemonade yellow body with a thick foamy head. Nose-smells like a macro from a foot away. Up close, notes of lotion, CO2, light must, light white spices come out. Taste-prickly, soft, light lotion, lavender, coriander, watery, light citrus, Alka-Seltzer (big time), orange, chamomile, mildly tart. Not bad for a lame style, but kind of thin and uninspiring. I hate to say this, but this beer would probably taste better with a wedge of lemon or orange in it. I could imagine kicking back and slowly drinking a bottle of this on the back yards while eating oranges or dunking orange slices into it. VERY Alka-Seltzer like.

Cybercat (5170) - Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2007
AKA St. Bernardus Wit. Aroma is strong and malty/wheaty with a considerable citrus overtone, mainly lemon. Color is a cloudy, almost opaque, golden amber; head is fairly persistent. Flavor is rich and wheaty with plenty of citrus tang and a piny hops undertone. It feels thick and smooth, and leaves a lemony aftertaste, especially on the lips.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle: Pale straw, twas a bit lighter until I poured the bottom of the bottle in.   Large frothy white head, great retention, fairly decent lacing.   Big wheaty nose, corriander and citrus peel as well.   Moderate wheatiness on the tongue, dull spices.   Not as flavorful as I remembered.   Clean, has a citrusy finish.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Decent Wit Bier, but just isn’t as sharp or flavorful as I remembered.   However, it does feel a bit meatier/wheatier than most others.

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle. Not much to say about this one. Apparently from the guy(s) who made Höegaarden, and it tastes like Höegaarden. Which doesn’t help.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 1, 2007
bottle, Fruity aroma, tons of white head, tons of lacing. Tons of citrus and fruit, like hoegaarden. But more sour. Which is a plus to me. A nice wit, spice and fruity. With a good palate. Not a bad one at all.

alexanderj (3542) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle; poured a light golden-yellow with a medium sized white head. Very nice aroma of yeast, spice, wheat and hints of fruit. Fine example of the style. Very good palate for the style; was soft, smooth and a bit chewy. Flavor was solid, but not overly great. Flavor components same as the aroma.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Solid and buff in color with a stable white head. Floral, yeasty wheat and corriander aroma. Tart and clean in flavor, minimalist but still satisfying. Everything could be punched up for my tastes though. Soft, round palate. Definitely one of the better Wits out there.

mmmbeer (1392) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2007
From 11.2 oz bottle- poured turbid golden yellow, bubbly head. Aroma of fruit, wheat, and yeast. Hits the mouth with a heavy thin body, a bit of spices on the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2007 Pours the expected cloudy golden yellow, with medium thin white head thatr lingers well and leaves okay lacing. Nose immediately jumps out of the bottle as a spicy combination of corriander, clove, cookie dough and a hint of fruit. Mouthfeel reflects the nose by being somewhat tingly and chewy, and the flavor accentuates the spicy doughy character, with a hint of what seemed to be banana or fig. This is all topped off by a finish that is long, thirst quenching and quitre enjoyable. A fine offering!!
