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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma mild and uninteresting. Develops only a little bit, a hint of orange and spice, some wheatiness. Flavour very mild, a tinge of sourness. Not unpleasant, but not even close to worth the $3.25 a bottle I paid for it. I’ve had much better witbiers from American microbreweries and overall this was a big disappointment. I would not buy it even if it were cheap, if that says anything.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow color with no head. Slight corriander aroma. The taste is pretty thin and has a bit of the expected wheat and corriander. Overall it’s quite watery and average.
