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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Bottle: Cloudy light grapefruit juice color with a thin fizzy head, coriander and lemon peel in the aroma, fizzy with a light body, dry ending. A nice beer for a hot day.

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.

JonMoore (1861) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a murky yellow colour with small white head, quickly gone. Aroma is coriander/vanilla and malt. Taste is great; light spices, citrus. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, wheaty finish. Excellent.

Rastacouere (6130) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2004
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.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2004
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.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2004
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.
