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.

Very light, cloudy pale golden color. Small, fizzy white head. Wheat and spice aroma. Crisp and thin mouthfeel. Goes down very easy. Fruity esters and yeasty taste, some spice notes. Good Belgian wheat.

On draft at Sunset Grill in Allston, MA. Pours very pale and cloudy with no head. Rich wheaty aroma. Nice wheat flavour that gets more interesting as it developes. This one started off not very strong, but seems to grow in stature as it goes down. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 Full of sparking, yeasty, wheat goodness. Like Hoegararden deluxe!!!In my humble opinion, the best white beer in the world. If you can get it, try it. The debate should fun and damn delicious.

On tap at Stone. Bright hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Good strong orange, clove, and bready aroma. Crisp citrus taste, mild spiciness, and a bready finish.

330. Pours cloudy dark straw colored with a positively towering thick bubbly platinum-blonde head. Plenty of irregular lace down the sides of the glass as the beasty-big head settles. Huge lemony nose, very little wheat sour there. Watery and extremely neutral flavors on the mid palate and the finish...starts out beautifully and then goes nowhere.

Bottle: Pours hazy and pale yellow with an off-white, mostly dimnishing head. Nose of banana, yeast and fruit. Flavour of wheat, citrus fruit and coreander. Smooth and light bodied. Slightly bitter finish. Enjoyable.

[Sampled in 2005 at Carlsens.] One of the best witbiers ever. Has some more ingredients than Hoegaarden, ex. yeast palate is more powerfull and the mess of different spices as coriander and oranges is nice. Complex and "abbey"!!

bottle 33cl, pours a cloudy golden color with little head, strong smells of wheat, bread, yeast, corriander. sweet bready taste, some corriander, not that bad, i kind of expected it to be a lot better.

Hazy yellow/orange pour with a thin white head that quickly evaporates, leaving very little in the form of lacing. Smells of wheat, yeast and citrus fruit (mainly orange). The taste is very light and fruity but leaves a bit of a lingering bitter aftertaste. Not bad, but I prefer Hoegaarden.

Bottle poured into a wiezen glass. Pours straw yelow with a large creamy white head that sticks around leaving minimal lacing. Looking at the glass it is very murky. The aroma is grainy with some lemon in it, aso a little banana. Taking the first drink the initial flavor is grainy then I am getting a slight spicyness from the yeast, after that I get a citrusy/emon flavor along with a slight hint of coriander on the back of my tounge that lasts for a little while. The body is medium with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.
