Aroma: pineapple, grainy and a touch of funkiness. Appearance: cloudy yellow/brown (almost like pear juice) with a small head. Sudsy lacing. Flavour: sweet pineapple, tough of hoppiness some wheaty malt a little barnyardy. Palate: heavily carbonated (makes it spikey) but thin to medium mothfeel. Drinks clean.

Hazy yellow coloured with a small white head.

A bit too spicy for my liking.

My find of the day at Peace St. Market, Raleigh. Hazy dark straw pour with fizzy head and aromas of big citrus, spices, some cinnamon and almonds. Solid palate with good complexity and balance. Very good, but there are better wits out there.

Beautiful smelling beer. Serve it in a tumbler. An excellent example of a witbier. Pours a nice cloudy orange color with some slight fizz that goes away. A lot of carbonation, but serves the beer well. Typical orange and coriander, but also some vanilla and licorice is noted. Has some orange peel floaties, a nice touch. Nice beer to sip on for any ocassion.

This was an excellent witbier. The orange body took on a gray cast at times. The aroma was huge, juicy orange flesh and a bit of coriander. There was also seemed to be a bit of vanilla and it was a bit reminiscent of orange sherbet in that way. The flavor was bright and fruity and quite refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Greyish orange, hazy beer with a decent head. Classic Belgian wheat beer with loads of fruit and added orange and coriander. Decent but nothing spectacular. 190304

This one has a similar palate to the brewer’s other beers and goes down easily but its a bit too lemony-orangey for me. Its an awesome wit despite my predilection there. It has a nice sharp flavor to it and is bound to please wit beer lovers.

Spicy hop malt aroma. Murky yellow colour with poor head but good lacing. Very malty flavour with yeast underlying flavours. Fizzy palate.

Calandro’s Supermarket, Baton Rouge, La. 11.2 fl oz bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden with a thin, tight white head. Slight lemony aroma, a bit of coriander. Flavor is very tangy, a bit of orange peel, lemon and corander. Mouthfeel is slighlty thick, not as spritzy as some wits. Overall decent, expected just a bit more from St. Bernardus.

a mes rate:
cloudy straw colour with a head that vanishes almost instantly. in addition to the usual citric nose is a little more vanilla, sugar and spice than usual. all this is apparent in the taste too. obviously there is oranges and lemons followed by the yeast. finish is spicy and nutty. im not a big witbier fan but this is clearly one of the best i have had. pulled from a tap on a hot day im sure it is great.
