On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. An excellent witbier, with VERY citrusy flavor and aroma. Also, looked very nice - cloudy golden color in a brandy snifter. Very enjoyable beer.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 krystal wheat with lots of little bubbles. Very popular with my mates. Beautiful white milkshake. Some complementary spices without being too banana. Bit astringent.
Was better on tap 5 months later in Florida. More grapefruit, orange zest there.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy yellow and gold. Aromas are spritzy wheat and spices - refreshing. Flavours are grain, wheat, spice and spices with some citrus sourness. I found this a bit flat and disappointing especially for a St Bernardus beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy muddy strawlike color with slight head which quickly dissipates. Earthy, corriander and yeasty nose with citrus notes. Not very effervescent. Flavors of citrus and spice are present however I ’m picking up something unusual. Not quite sure how to describe it.

Hazy blonde color, fine thin white head, fair lacing. Great aroma of citrus (lemon and more), wheat and yeast. Flavor of wheat, citrus and yeast. Weak bitter finish. Light body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Not bad, good and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy pale yellow. Firm white head, 1cm tall, rocky. Creamy coriander aroma, lemongrass and well-defined malt. Yeasty palate with traces of must and grass. Subdued wheat. Nice lemon flavors. Refreshing and quaffable. While I expected it a bit tastier, the texture is great, well carbonated and a well built medium body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy and hazy pale golden color, spicy, earthy citrus aromas, nice white creamy head that sticks to the sides of my glass. Fresh lemons and mild spice flavors, crisp carbonated mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry with a touch of orange, great for the style, a very drinkable and refreshing brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer pours quite dark golden for a wit with a dissipating egg white head. Aroma is pretty right on, with notes of coriander, yeast, and a bit of rum soaked raisins, which was unexpected. Flavor is really nice. Quite dry, with a bit of wheat and spiciness. Very refreshing. I could do with a lot more of these during the summer here in Texas.
