UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 Incredible wit. Pour was a cloudy white with a thin one finger head. Aroma of yeast and spice. Taste was nice and strongly spiced and creamy. Medium carbonation. Coriander and citrus that are perfectly balance. As I finish this I realize this is the best wit I’ve ever had.

Nice hazy peach color.Little head, fades away rather quickly. The beer smells fruity a peachy/pear smell I would say, but this is not very pungent. There are definitely fruit flavors in this beer, but they are rather weak. The beer is smooth. The beer is very creamy and smooth. I like this better than most Witbier’s I was just expecting a better taste from St. Bernardus. Don’t get me wrong, you should try this beer they make a fine product. The malty taste is great and this is a decent brew.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow color with an average head. Aroma of yeast, mixed spices, and a little bit of citrus. Full flavored, with a nice spicy kick along with banana notes, grass, and a little bit of funk. Nice and full mouthfeel. Definitely one of the best witbiers I have ever had.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Pours a cloudy straw blonde with a medium white head. Smells of wheat, citrus, and some lemon and orange. Very refreshing smell. Taste has big wheat characters as expected. Good dose of citrus fruits and a little spice as well. Very crisp taste, I gulped this brew down quite fast. Good wit beer from a solid brewery.

Pours a very hazy whitish pale yellow color with a huge amount of foamy white head. Aroma very faint, bit of banana and lemon. Flavor is pretty full for a white, banana, lemon, dough, coriander, and a bit of grass. Overall, pretty good for the style.
