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.

Pale yellow color, very cloudy. White head, not lasting much. Aroma of bread, wheat, yesast, with some citrus notes, not as much as expected. Flavor is not as much acidiand spicy as usual in the style. Some citrus, a hint of clove. very refreshing in summer.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle purchased on my Michigan trip. Very interesting aroma - heavy yeast character, sweet lemon - pretty funky stuff, not exactly what you would expect in this style. Still trying to decide if I liked it or not. Cloudy yellow, with a very small white head. Taste: stale malt, tangy lemon, lots of yeast (house yeast? I knew I was drinking a St. Bernardus on first sip - and smell really). Hmm, this is nice, but coming from these guys, I was expecting a heck of a lot more than just another standard Belgian.

Hazy light orange body with a medium creamy white head. Sweet spiced aroma with some light orange peel. Sweet flavor of fruit and light spice.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Cloudy and tan, with a this fizzy head the fades quickly. The aroma is sour apples and wheat. Heavy and wheaty, with heavy carbonation. The finish is cleaner than I expected, given the heavy body and sweet flavor.

Metalhead (638) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Cloudy pale orange,mild head. Great aroma of yeasty dough,banana puree and hints of citrus. Flavor is pretty subdued mild wheat and hints of citrus tho quite refreshing. Expensive at $3.50 a bottle. I’ll take Hoegaaden over this.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2006
Cloudy (almost milky) pale orange colour with a wheaty, banana and citrussy aroma. Taste is creamy and as you’d expect citrussy....to me better than Hoegaarden.

Ratman197 (11234) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2006
11.2 oz bottle poured a cloudy golden brown [ peculiar color for a wit] with a large lasting white head. Aromas of lemon, light banana, wheat and some spice. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, lemon, light bananaand spice with a crisp refreshing finish.

Pours hazy pale golden with a fully receding, foamy off-white head. Aroma of banana, orange peel, light acidic lemon. Taste is yeasty, lightly sweet wheat, and quite fruity esters. Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied with lively Belgian carbonation. Quite good.

Very good white, flowery arome, some citrus and wheat, very refreshing, poor bitterness. Just a bit expensive.
