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.

nick76 (4302) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2006
The aroma has bread, coriander, citrus, and a little banana. The appearance is a cloudy gold with a foamy head. The flavor is much like the aroma but a bit more sour than expected. Also this has plenty of spice and malt in the taste. The palate is typical for the style. This is a good example of the Witbier style.

Spicy, wheaty and corn aroma. Flavor has a lot of corn and spice, a bit sweat and watery and not yeasty enough. Slight vegetably finish.

Courtesy of Crizay <P> Aroma holds a lot of spice, coriander and orange peel. Slightly musty notes as well. Yellow body with a lazy white head. Yeast, clove, coriander and orange peel. Fairly tasty, but thinnish.

From the bottle.

Pours light and cloudy with a limited head. Nice Belgian witbier aroma - lemon and cloves and a hint of grass. The flavor is relatively straightforward, extremely well balanced, and delightfully refreshing; the mouthfeel is if anything slightly undercarbonated. I’d like to try this head-to-head with Hoegaarden and see how they compare.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
This beer has an aroma of wheat, lemon, and butter. It is a sediment filled maple colored solution with a thin white head. This smooth moderate bodied beer has a taste of wheat and lemon/citrus. At the point of swallowing there is a tad bit of sour that creeps into the taste. It fades leaving a mild lemon/orange wheat taste in the throat.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Cloudy yellow colour with a nice but fast disappearing head. Nice aroma of wheat, coriander and orange. Also great flavour of wheat with very noteable of coriander and orange. This is a very good belgian wit, endeed.

Boutip (5031) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle: Poured a hazy white tinted golden ale with a small bubbly white head with just better then average retention. Aroma of coriander and wheat is quite dominant. Taste is also dominated by the wheat and coriander with an above average body. Very good for a style that often produce boring beers but definitely not the best from this brewery.
