UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Favolosa blanche di Sint Bernardus, colore eccezionale, aspetto fitto impenetrabile rame/oro con schiuma copiosa e cremosa. Aroma speziato e pieno, sapore conforme all’aspettativa e corpo perfetto. Fenomenale._______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE____________Fabulous blanche by St. Bernardus, exceptional color, appearance hazy, hard to penetrate with the eyes, copper to gold with huge and creamy white head. Aroma is spicy and full, flavor fulfills expectations and body is ok. Wonderful.

This great looking wit has a balanced aroma of citrus, vanilla, and wheat. The strong taste of yeast with creamy elements came forward right away. I enjoyed the flowing smooth taste with the spark of hops.

The aroms is very good - it’s of course full of yeast, but also with some citrus. The taste is yeasty and with some spices - with perhaps pineable. A great witbier.

bottle. damn i love clearance racks of beer. metamucil like appearance with a film of a white head. spice nose of lemon or corriander or GofP or something similar. a bit of earthy yeast scent perks me up. buttery, mild spice notes & caramel. bitter finish lingers and dries me out. lasting pepper flavor, not a good way to end it. 2 6 6 4 13

Bottle. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with a nice big white head. Citrus, coriander, and clove notes dominate the nose, and the taste is a nice mix of citrus, spice, bread, and wheat characteristics. A lemon wedge in here really brought the flavor to the fore, rounding out a wonderful witbier.

When i saw a box of this on the floor unopened at a local liquor store Imperial Beach i knew i had to jump on it before it slipped away. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tall weizen glass. This created a vigorous white foaming and was a glowing whittish yellow with plenty of sediment seen. The smell was mild with minor notes of coriander and yeast but overall very subdued. The same can be said about the flavor and how average it would compare to the style. I guess my assumptions were wrong being that this was the infamous St Bernardus on the label but overall average and worth tasting on another hot scorching day.
