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.

Has a nice cloudy pineapple yellow color and not much head compared to the other St Berny’s. Like them however, it smells like fresh bread, granted this has more of a sweeter simple side to them. The flavor is a very nice smooth citrus and malt flavor. Reminds me heavily of lemons and the smell of fresh cut grass. Definitely an ideal summer beer.

Pours a golden orange with medium white head. Aroma is fruity, some spice, wheat. Initial flavor is acidic and acidic, then grainy, vanilla, with a medium body and a solid wheat finish. Very smooth. Could use a bit more spice.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 I was really impressed with this wheat beer. What is amazing to me is that this beer although deffinitely a wheat beer still retains a strong Belgian character. The nose is espesially wonderfull, fild with fruitiness, whiskey-esque, and citrus. The drink is the definition of refreshing and light, but not like a lite beer. No the taste is complex and compelling from start to end. I’ve nothing but good things to say about this brew.

This is pretty darn refresing wheat beer that I really liked. Lots of of foam and good on the nose, decent bite, just not much in the aftertaste

Brewtopia’04. Bottle. Hazy, pale yellow, fizzy white head, floaties. This beer is all citrus, orange, corriander. Apple juice acidity. Nice soft wit feel.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2004
Golden, grey(!) colour. Unclear. Weak white head. High carbonation. Very mild flavour. Floral. Coriander. Citrus. Bread. Rather dry finish. Metallic? Overall not quite like most witbeers. Something in its own.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Keith-Slight orange aroma mixed with spices and apple. Coriander and yeast make up most of the flavor with is smooth. Decent finish.

Nice cloudy yellow appearance with a spicy and citrus (peach) aroma. Nice complex tastes which were yeast, mellow pepper, orange peel and wheat. A little overcarbonated but very good indeed.
