3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow with floaties. Small white head. Nose is almost sour, like a white table wine, with orange and lemon notes. Flavor is somewhat spicy, with muted ginger and coriander. Orange and lemon citrus flavors. Body is thicker than most witbiers.

Very similar to Hoegaarden. Maybe a bit more bitter. The typical hazy orange color and earthy citrus flavor of a witbier.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow with smallish white head. Nose is of citrus, mainly orange, and ginger ale. Flavor of honey followed by the citrus. Mouth-feel is heavy with not quite the thirst-quenching of a Hoegaarden.

Notes from Decatur Beerfest 05. Bottle pour - hazy yellow with a decent puffy white head. Wheaty lemon aromas and flavors with a decent balance of corriander and spice. Medium body, and very drinkable and refreshing. A very nice representative beer for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2006 Bottle: Not as good as I had hoped. It poured a very fuzzy/murky yellowigsh-golden color with a big fat foamy/sudsy head. Aroma is rather bannanay. Flavor is a little off, just a bitter bite (wonder if mine went bad after the apx. 6 mos. of storage I put it through (maybe got too cold overnight in an insulated garage). I guess I could agree it has a weizen-like crispness, but maybe too crisp for a whit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
i got shorted a bit on the celebrated st. bernardus head-- expecting a leonine mane, i get sinead o’connor: thin fuzz and a couple of big sweet and pouting bubble eyes. the beer is a milky applesauce yellow, like liquified lasagna noodles. it’s inner beauty emerges in a rich aroma: grain bag and yeasty grape skins, partly baked streudel dough, pine needles. sparky carbonation underlies pear nectar and dry white wine flavor. a very tasty beer-- very very tasty. in fact, if the word ’very’ was an actual legal measurement of qualifiable enthusiasm, i’d add about three more of them. begins as sweet as a tripel, but that effect diminished across the life of my little bottle’s eleven ounces. with a weizen-like crispness, full body, some gentle respirations of alcohol, and enough yeast to lift breads, buns and biscuits across the continent, it’s modest coriander bitterness offsets cider apple sweetness. yeah, it’s very very very... you get the idea. good.

This brew poured a hazy honey color. Aroma is nice and malty; a little sweet. Taste is very refreshing and light. With malt and fruity flavors, such as apple, abound. Finish is nice and sweet. Not heavily bitter. A very good Belgian White.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy grapefruit yellow with egg-white head that reduced to a thin film. A very complex fruity and spicy aroma. Yeasty. Fruity flavours, but midway spices take over, ending drier than the initial sweetness would suggest. Well-balanced and well-made. Not much carbonation for a wheat beer. One of the better and complex wheat beers I have tasted.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy Yellow Coloring with White Skin. Extremely Perfumed Aroma. ’Floral’ Doesn’t Do it Justice. Yeast, Coriander - Some Nice Spices. Fruit. Very Nice Aroma. Body and Taste Isn’t Quite as Good as the Aroma. But Overall a Really Nice Witbier.
